Thankgiving break return, stupidity, etc.

A lot has happened since last we hunkered down in front of our computers to churn out an angry rant about how god-awful the future of our country looks or something a little less serious, perhaps like a badass Star Wars wiki page (Have you visited it yet? You really are missing out if not).

So, after almost a week, we return from a break spent celebrating gluttony, watching football, debating whether or not we are going to enter a Rustbelt trebuchet in the next Punkin Chunkin event, going into the woods with a rifle, and listening to Alice's Restaurant on Repeat.

The Steelers lost, and subsequently have raised our blood pressure. The Penguins shellacked the Rangers twice. Keith Ballard hurt his own goalie in one of the most epic fails ever. President Obama grew a pair and decided we were going to get those terrorists in Afghanistan. But what we're really concerned about is this report on Yahoo! searches.

The biggest surprise in the list of 2009 top searches may be WWE, the official website for professional wrestling. The WWE website includes news of the latest matches and WWE superstar profiles and videos.

Below is the official top ten Yahoo! list for overall searches:

1. Michael Jackson 2. Twilight 3. WWE 4. Megan Fox 5. Britney Spears 6. Naruto 7. American Idol 8. Kim Kardashian 9. NASCAR 10. Runescape

You know, a lot of talk has been raised about our "Founding Fathers" and what not. Every self-proclaimed patriot and Constitution expert has literally been touching themselves to worthless drivel about our Founding Fathers, and what they would do in today's political and social climate.

Well, I think this is evidence that our Founding Fathers would be less concerned with the Muslim socialist Hitleresque baby killer running the country and would be more concerned with how ridiculously idiotic its inhabitants have become. And yes, nobody uses Yahoo! any more, so this isn't necessarily the largest focus group for judging society, but still - Naruto?!

**UPDATE** - Sadly, the Google list is not much better...
