Part of the reason we haven't done one yet is good old classic American sloth, and the other part is that, regarding the macro category at least, I can't imagine ranking anything No. 1.

Canadian College Football Fans Are Adorable Berserkers

Sixty years ago, LIFE magazine tapped into the joys and tortures of football fandom by traveling north of the American border, where collegians in Ontario were positively freaking out over a rare win on the gridiron.

Topless Woman Crashes News Report At Pride Festival

CityNews reporter Natalie Duddridge had one hell of a day at the office yesterday.
