A year is defined by its words, and its words are defined, in turn, by the trends and upheavals that rocked our world to its very foundation in the year of 2011, so is it any wonder 2011 saw some of the most amazing words of all time, all in the space of one single year?

10. Slang Words
9. Internet words
6. Crazy Words
5. Words Screamed By Maniacs

2011 was a year of scandal. Anyone who disagrees is wrong. Here’s a video I made for the Huffington Post counting down the BIGGEST SCANDALS OF 2011:
Itâ€™s that time of year again: YEAR-END LIST TIME!!!
Most years are incredible, and this was the year we realized 2011 was no different. From news events to current events, we saw a bit of everything in 2011, and thatâ€™s what made it special. 2011 was truly a year for the history books.

Songs can express the full spectrum of human emotion in just three minutes on the radio. They can make us feel happy or sad. Some of them even make us smile! Their melodies get stuck in our head for days — that’s the power of song.
2011 was a great year for songs. It was almost like pop stars and opera composers conspired to make us feel things we’d never felt before — now is our chance to thank them. From number-one smash hits to other, crappier songs, 2011 was one of the best years ever for songs. They should put the year 2011 in the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
Here are my picks for the TOP TEN GREATEST SONGS OF 2011:
10. Songs that made us happy
8. Songs that made us jealous
7. Instrumental jams
6. Rap songs
5. Country songs
4. Noisy songs
3. Quiet songs
2. Other songs
1. The best songs!
Check back soon for my of my year-end lists!
Hello! Remember when I was a political cartoonist, and then I quit? Well something made me annoyed enough to get back in the ol’ cartooning game: This crappy SOPA bill that’s being voted on and which could lead to China-style internet censorship here in America, the country we all love.
It makes me sad b/c even when I was a cartoonist making dirty jokes about Dick Cheney and how he’s a war criminal etc, I always knew nothing bad would happen to me — because we have freedom of expression, which is awesome — so when foreign journalists interviewing me about GYWO would ask, “So, has the government reached out to stop you?” I would always say, “I don’t know what it’s like in your country, but here in America we can say whatever the fuck we want and it’s beautiful.”
We gotta keep that! It’s important!
So anyway enough of my old-man ramblings. Here’s one of the comics … the rest are waiting for you at http://getyourcensoron.com/
Thanks — and please STOP SOPA!
Hi everybody! After taking November off, my monthly comedy show LOLLYGAGGIN’ is returning to the stage tomorrow (Thursday) night. Please celebrate the birth of December with me as I host STARLEE KINE (This American Life) and muckraking journalist MATT TAIBBI, who I will interview onstage re: what are banks and what is money.
All the information is contained in this flyer I made on my computer:
I interviewed a bunch of bands for CMJ. You can download their songs and my interrogations here.
Long-time readers will be familiar with my Guy Fieri obsession.
Mama mia, this is an amazing article about Guy Fieri:
“Guy will say whatever he needs to say to prop up his image of Guy as a really nice guy.”
Read it and weep onion rings!
Today is the tenth anniversary of Get Your War On!
Remember the good times here.
