John Stewart Poop ’11

I really had a hard time finding a top ten in 2011. This past year it was all about the 99 Percent and Occupy Wall Street. What they did was change the conversation from the balanced budget to the lack of economic equality that exists in our country. The New York Mets of English Football? Manchester City won the FA Cup and West Ham United got relegated. I am also convinced when I watch the GOP debates? They should be playing clown music instead. I can’t take these people seriously at all.

Disappointment of the Year?
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – The English/Hollywood version pales in comparison to the original Swedish trilogy. Plus what wasn’t Noomi Rapace in the Hollywood Version? She speaks perfect English and is a better actor then Rooney Mara.

Anyway any comments or complaints?
