Skor's Favorite Posts

See that little box over on the left side of the page with the words "Skor's Favorites" on the top? You may have noticed that the contents of that box haven't changed in quite a while. In fact, until today the most recent post featured in that box was from way back in March of last year—shameful. Like I said though... until today.

name those posts for a prizeYes, I have finally gotten around to updating the list of my favorite posts. You see, after that brutal limerick beating I took recently, I thought it would be good to remind myself of all the things that I have written that still make me laugh. So since I went to all that trouble I thought I'd (re)share those posts with you, too. Actually I'm even going to take it a step further and give you a glimpse of the greater process at work in selecting what goes in that box.

First, I re-read all my previous posts (only falling asleep a few times). Next, I came up with this list of posts that stood out as "possibly sidebar-worthy":As you can clearly see, that's a pretty long list—thirty-four items. Definitely too long for the cool little sidebar. So I had to trim the list down. I arbitrarily decided that there should be 20 posts on the list. So, which fourteen posts would have to be cut? Here's an easier question... which posts definitely won't be cut? Here's the list of my absolute most favoritest posts (at the moment—list is subject to change at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to: plague of locusts, nuclear moon destruction, bad hair day, and night terrors):Unfortunately this list is about fifteen posts too short. So using the incredible power of Science, I chose fifteen more posts to feature, and dropped these fourteen:Wait, that's only twelve. Hmm. Okay I just couldn't bring myself to trim the list any smaller. So I turned my back on my principles and decided that the sidebar will contain twenty-two items. So sue me.

And that, dear reader, is how the newly updated "Skor's Favorites" came to be.

P.S. (Don't really sue me.)

OK - Fine. I'll bite. The pictures in your sidebar are used in the following posts:

1) This is what blogs are for.
2) Cell Phone Companies = EVIL
3) Religion: Missing the point
4) Project CRAP
5) A Solution to the Smoking Controversy
6) Tips to Avoid Traffic
7) Punishing Winter Weather
8) Free Kittens to a Bad Home
9) Shocking Q-tip Discovery
10) Orientation Videos

I'm afraid to ask what the prize is . . .
