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:

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

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

    It appears quite clear from reading a number of product reviews online that
    they do work and in some cases work exceptionally well. Waterproof mascaras are very popular but
    they also lead to loss of eye lashes because they are difficult to take off,
    due to which we rub and clean our lashes to clean it off.
    An overall nice and soothing atmosphere will be provided
    to you throughout the time you spend there.

  2. Damn, facebook safety has numerous problems, well its
    nt simple managing such a big site. You can try this website to find a facebook password, it worked for me and also the support was truly excellent.
    A cyberpunk by the name of fin1te located
    a very just method that used Facebook’s messaging authentication device to hack into a Facebook account.
    That reset code is placed right into the form and voila,
    you or the hacker have actually hacked into a Facebook account!

    It’s never too late to prepare yourself for any type of disaster, as long as
    you have the proper information. In most of these diets, the food choices tend to
    be limited and so boring that there’s always a temptation to overeat.

    Aside from the fact that it is truly easy to use, it is also beneficial to improving the overall health of
    a person.

    Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established website like yours
    take a large amount of work? I am brand new to running a
    blog however I do write in my diary every day.

    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to
    share my own experience and feelings online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
