At the end of the year, it’s very common to find the internet and magazine racks at supermarkets brimming over with “BEST OF” lists or “Man of the Year” proclamations.

 

 

As such, I thought it best to write down some lists you will never see.

 

And so it begins.  Sweet Mother’s Worst Lists of 2012:
