For once I'm ahead of the curve; I try to ignore all of them anyway.

If I had known cappuccinos and magazines were people, I'd have switched to tea and stopped wiping with National Review. Actually, I'd just have switched to tea.

Yeah, seems to me this could have been a Top 10 list.  At best.  *yawn*

At this point the idea that Paul Ryan is some financial wonk/budget wizard should be met with the same derision as a movie trailer tag line telling us "Rob Schneider has *never* been funnier!"
 
2012-12-27 12:43:08 PM  
So... the same people as this year?
 
2012-12-27 02:16:58 PM  
Clicking on the link brings you face to face with a large picture of Paul Ryan, so fair warning. Me? I'm currently crushing his head.
 
2012-12-27 02:19:34 PM  
Well, I already ignore all of those people that are people, I don't read Newsweek and I prefer black coffee or tea. What do I win?
 
2012-12-27 02:24:28 PM  
Me? I'm ignoring Fark.com's Skleenar.

2 of the 13 people were Judds. I think they accidentally posted the list for 2003.
 
2012-12-27 02:26:55 PM  
Basically... anyone who is an anchor, correspondent, contributor, guest, editor, boom mic grip, booking agent, graphics department, producer, production assistant, intern or doorman at Fox News.

Nice to see VF getting as stupid as every other rag.

Phil Moskowitz: Nice to see VF getting as stupid as every other rag.


in the internet age, nobody can escape the troll pseudo-article. It pisses people off or makes them nod smugly and drives page hits with only minimal work on the part of the writer.
 
2012-12-27 02:37:01 PM  
To what headline/picture troll of Time's is submitter referring?
 
2012-12-27 02:39:20 PM  
I'd like to add:
John Mccain
Lindsey Graham

This. I'm assuming the green lighting of this article was a misclick.
 
2012-12-27 02:46:30 PM  
Why is tenpoundsofcheese not on this list? Surely his opinions matter, right?
 
2012-12-27 02:46:49 PM  
This should have been a list of fark handles.
 
2012-12-27 02:47:54 PM  
This list makes cracked look like geniuses. I can only hope the author of that "article" is an unpaid blogger.

I look forward to not just ignoring Lieberman but pretending he never existed.
 
2012-12-27 03:04:45 PM  
We need to remain focused on the Vice President. He's just Biden his time.

List fails without slothy and slurpy, our favorite is-Benghazi-a-scandal-yet guys.
 
2012-12-27 03:19:36 PM  
What a bunch of fail. Here's what the list should be:

All of this year's Republican Presidential contenders. Yes, you too Santorum.

Jesus. Sorry evangelicals, its over for you, the GOP will stop with the abortion pandering and realize you're irrelevant.

The tea party. You're Ross Perot's "We the People" and its the end of 1996. Buh-bye.

Glenn Beck. Your Father Coughlin act had a good run, but its over.

Ahmadinejad. You'll be lucky to hang on to power, with your economy in the toilet. Nobody is buying that you'll close the Straits of Hormuz.

Gallup. You're the new Rasmussen.

Cable news. The real news junkies get their fix on the internet now, and surf so much at work they can't be bothered by the time they get home with your rehashed video packages.

Limbaugh. The GOP is starting to realize misogony doesn't sell, and you're all about hating women.

The last controversial one I can remember was the one in May of the lady breastfeeding a 4 year old.

With the bar as low as it is when talking about Rob Schneider, he could projectile vomit on the Queen of England, and it would be apt to say it was perhaps the funniest thing he's done in his life.

I've never seen a post from THIS FARKER. Is he a jerk or something? I bet he says "THIS" all the time. That would get old quick.

Considering it's Rob Schneider, I wouldn't put it past him to make such an obviously hysterical act completely unbearable.
 
2012-12-27 06:19:37 PM  
Ignoring someone means you're SUPPRESSING THEIR VIEWS! Why do you hate the First Amendment, and therefore the Second???
 
2012-12-27 06:40:09 PM  
Holy crap! What'd I do?

Things That Are People:

Corporations
Cappuccinos
Magazines

You couldn't have cared about it very much if you hired Randy Newman Rob Schneider.

Yeah, I don't think making the cover of Newsweek is an option these days http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324660404578201432812202 750.html
