Best Posts of 2008 (Yet Another Cheesy End of Year Recap!)


With 2009 breathing down onto our collective necks, I thought I'd offer up a recap of the best 10 1WD posts form 2008.

Sure, it's cheesy. But can I offer you a tangential reference to the movie Best of the Best 2, which was also cheesy but starred Eric Roberts and Wayne Newton? That's gotta count for something, right?

No? Crap... never mind...

The only qualifying factor for determining which posts are on this list is my own personal whimsy. New Year's is not a time for precise science. It's a time for getting giggly on some bubbly.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the recap, especially if you find articles here that you haven't perused before on 1WD.

And I wish you & yours a fantastic - and safe - start to 2009!
