2007 saw a few more writers spread their wings, including the first lady author on the team. I can't remember exactly when Miss Cellania joined us, but it was in 2008 that she met her perfect subject matter. Oh yes, now she writes for all those high-fallutin sites like Neatorama and Mental Floss, and has been featured on TV News Shows.
But for us, Miss C will always be the one who showed us how popular old porn stars could be.
Meanwhile Aquaman claimed the #3 spot with a missive on NFL Quarterback's Wives, and our comic reviewer Evil Rich struck YBNBY gold with our single most read story of all time.
Since this was written we've seen the good (Curb Your Enthusiasm Seinfeld episode) and the very bad (The Marriage Ref), but this piece brought us up to date on the minor characters - big hands lady, anyone?
In an age where every teenage girl seems to twitter about Justine Bieber, the idea of rather more adult groupies offering rather more than a scream and a feint reminds us all what Rock n Roll is really about.
When you get to the point where you have to use Roman Numerals in an article, you know you have a hit on your hands. By this point, I think Mss C was just following up on commenters too lazy to use Google or MySpace themselves.
One of the very few times in writing YBNBY that I actually felt like a real journalist. Was I hoaxed, or did I score the scoop of the century? Even I'm not completely sure.
Way to keep it classy, Scaramouch, with a penetrating expose of a variety of objects that have at one time or another been inserted into the conversation.
Like I said, Scaramouch keeping it classy. Where we find out that nine of the last ten Oscar Winning Actresses have done a topless scene at one time or another. Can you guess the holdout?
Aquaman tiptoes into the top ten with a blog post that's nine words long. That's longer than this description so savor it. Or maybe it just goes really, really, really, really slow.
At one time, this article was the top site on Google for "Ashley Manning", and then became hot again with the death of Steve McNair. So, every cloud....
See #8. Only more so.
Our most commented story of all time, our most read story of all time. Around the time we published, it was ranked the #1 blog post on the web for one day, on which we received over 100,000 visits. i think it was the emphasis on Boners.
We're halfway through our jaunt through the YesButYears - next on Monday, 2008. I wish I could say the best was still to come. But I've started, so I'll finish.
