The Top 5 of Top 5s
Lists. Oh, how we love them! Everything from Night of 100 Stars to The FBI’s 10 most wanted, Americans just can’t seem to get enough of them. Lists give our otherwise arbitrary and mundane lives order and meaning; all while keeping things snappy and concise. This frees us up for more important endeavors such as watching a marathon of The View on cable or reorganizing our sock drawer.

We also love blogs. And man, when blogs met lists, it was a party of Spring Break proportions. Anybody with a computer, an opinion, and an ability to count can now crank out material like the world’s going to end. Which, as we found out, apparently isn’t as imminent as we may have at first thought. (I’m looking at you, Mayans!)

So, in the spirit of counting, blogs, and the apocalypse (why not?), I bring you – The Top 5 “Top 5” Lists of ALL Time. These brainchildren of the bloggersphere were handpicked like organic produce especially for you. So sit back, grab a glass of one of your top 3 beverages, and enjoy.

I don’t know why Americans love bald actors as much as we do. Maybe it’s because we aren’t distracted by hair and can concentrate on their skills. Or maybe it’s because they sometimes resemble a roll-on deodorant and we like being reminded not to smell bad.


Not that you deserve it, but I’m including an extra bonus entry for no additional charge:
