I don't know why I enjoyed this post as much as I did, but hey, you don't need a reason to be amused.

I mean, what's not to like?

Midnighttwice is a totally awesome BuzzFeed user who basically owns a menagerie. She has dogs and cats and a super derpy camel and she's also the woman who owns Yeah Lamb. So I pretty much love her. That is all.

9. Everything Petran Has Posted

So we have lots of users from abroad, and Petran is one of our active Russian users. He posts demotivational posters, and every time I see them I get absurdly amused.


5. 10 Things You Didn't Know About "Saved By The Bell"

Did you know that Mr. Belding is probably a Vietnam Vet? Neither did I! This post enlightened me on that and 9 other facts about the show I grew up with.

4. Why Turtles Are Better Than Cats

BuzzFeed has a pretty strong pro-cat bias, in case you hadn't noticed. However, I prefer dogs and birds and turtles because they're way better and because cats are jerks.


3. The Grumpy Cat Compendium

So I'm pretty vocally anti-cat (trust me, the entire BuzzFeed office knows this), but Grumpy Cat frowned her way into my heart this year. This list sums up all the reasons why I love her.

Hands down, my favorite BuzzFeed post this year was This Is Title. When I came across it during the course of my day, I laughed and sent it to a few of my coworkers. Since they all laughed, we decided to promote the post to the front page as a joke. And you guys, you awesome wonderful users, totally ran with it. I have never, in my year and a half at BuzzFeed, seen such a fantastic response from our users.

Anyways, This Is Title reminded me why I love the BuzzFeed community so much. You guys share interesting, funny, cute, informative things on our website and I really, really love you all. Thank you for a wonderful 2012!
