Una delle tendenze che affligge la rete e chi scrive per la rete da sempre, e che ha smesso di essere divertente quasi subito per diventare una piaga che ha quasi solo lo scopo di gonfiare le page-views e stimolare elementari reazioni di adesione o (più spesso) indignazione è la tentazione a trasformare qualunque cosa in una lista. Uno dei siti che eccelle in questo giochetto è l'uber-aggregatore Buzzfeed, in cui letteralmente un post su 5 tende ad essere una lista o una classifica.

Qualche giorno fa quei simpaticoni di McSweeney's hanno pubblicato uno dei loro celebri post parodistici, intitolato Suggested Buzzfeed Articles. Neanche a dirlo, sono tutte liste. E neanchea dirlo, alcune sono a modo loro geniali:


Elvis Presley’s 42 Sweatiest Moments

13 Toddlers Wearing Giant Clocks Around Their Necks

3 Opera Singers Covered in Day-Old Newspapers

11 Retired History Professors Being Stung by Wasps

26 Celebrities Who Look Worse Because of the Passage of Time

12 Cats That Just Want to Be Left Alone

84 Things That Aren’t On an Everything Bagel

25 Numbers Bigger Than “2”

50 Photos of Bill Clinton’s Forehead

8 Surprising Uses for an Orange

14 Wrong Turns That Will Lead Your Vehicle Into an Active Volcano

12 Movie Plots Involving Trash Compactors (Sponsored)

10 Essential Songs About Wheat

11 Political Lessons We Learned From Gilmore Girls

3 Ways to Get a Duck to Quack

14 Paintings of Queen Elizabeth Holding Unbuttered Toast

3 McDonald’s Built On Top Of Nuclear Reactors

29 Reasons to Hate Your Life [#]


Ma la cosa piùbella è un'altra; quelli di Buzzfeed, che sono furbi come le faìne e fiutano un meme lontano chilometri, hanno colto la palla al balzo e alcune di queste liste le hanno pubblicate davvero

3 Commenti a “Listomania”:

  1. Katrice ha detto:

    This really is just a waste of your energy and of your income.

  2. cnc turning parts ha detto:

    Online products are extremely appealing, because the parts
    are really cool, none that you have seen in a auto parts store.
    This adds in that artistic element to your
    booklets. Choose colors that majority of your target audience may like.
