Some notes on these:
- Only one of the two singers is an actual singer, and she didn’t even make the top of the list.
- Steve Jobs, who died this year, revolutionized the personal computer and telephone. Ryan Dunn, who died this year, revolutionized sticking a toy car up his ass, and outpaced both the iPhone and Steve Jobs.
- And for the record, the iPhone 5 still doesn’t exist. Yes: The world searched something above everything else that doesn’t even exist, in name or concept. That’s crazy.
- Everything on the internet is awful.
