I don't think a New York Times article has ever made me laugh as hard as this one on embarrassing place names in the United Kingdom. Slutshole? Wetwang? C'mon now. (source)
Even though I like Billy Joel, I loved this delightfully snarky article on Slate naming him The Worst Pop Singer Ever. To this day, in the minivan that I drive sits a cache of cassette tapes purchased by my mother during the late 1980s. Tucked among the oldies and Irish folk tunes, there is a single album that we could all agree to listen to during the family vacations of my youth. Oh yes, Billy Joel's Storm Front. Don't think that I still don't pop it in every once in a while.
