This article informs us that Letterman’s Top Ten list is now nearly 20 years old. Though a list is a perennial format for ha-has, I remember my distinct distaste for it developed when I heard my high school’s “class clown” ripoff the Top 10 list during the morning announcements. (Even then a comedy snob.)
Thankfully, this little article features Executive Producer Rob Burnett’s favorite lists, which are naturally a bit more eccentric than your topical one: one featuring what if everyone was named Kevin and the other, names for Phil’s new hat store. From the latter:
- Jimbo’s Lid City.
- The Jim’o'shantery.
- Wally’s Hat Shop (under new management).
- If You Don’t Want a Hat, Then Screw You.
Good reminder that it’s not the form, it’s what you stick into it.
