For some Friday-afternoon time kills, I'd recommend a collection of wonderful lists, courtesy of McSweeney's. For those of you who don't know of it, McSweeney's is a boutique publishing house founded by Dave Eggers, who many of you may know as the author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. In any event, the McSweeney's website has a collection of some fairly amusing items. The title of this entry comes from their list of "Possible Follow-up Songs for One-Hit Wonders," as does "Remember When You Lit Up My Life? That Was Great."

Some other lists that you might enjoy.
This is just a sampling...you can see all of McSweeney's lists, if you dare.

While you're there, you might want to visit the website for the 826 Valencia Pirate Shop, and purchase things in anticipation of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, September 19th.
