Douchebags of the year

Usually by this point of the month, I'm as burnt out on "best of" lists as a I am on Critics Awards. And then the Guardian came along with their "12 biggest douchebags of the year," a list that captures everything that is great about year end lists. Introducing us to things we might not have paid that much attention to? Check. Reminding us of events from earlier in the year we've forgotten? Check. Funny? Check.

Here are two of my favorites from the list:

Sarah Palin's advisors

"What you need to do, Sarah, to communicate your folksy down-home attributes, is wink a lot. The world will love it."

Mattel Games

You took away our Scrabulous. For this, you must surely die.

Read the other 10 here. (And be aware there is a spoiler for anyone who hasn't seen the final season of The Wire)
