Jack's Favorite Buzz Of 2012

These are some of my favorite things that happened on the Internet this year, on and off BuzzFeed.

Posted on

1. This song that Hammersmith City Council made and which never fails to brighten my day.

3. The Best Indie Rock Christmas Parody Ever

12. The fact that Ze Frank relaunched The Show (!!!)

13. The time I got to write fan fiction about my favorite cat pictures.

Jenkins' mother was an odd bird, and he had never paid much attention to her when she said (as, rather worryingly, she often did) that it was "better to be Admiral of a box than Captain of a basket."

It was not without some bitter irony that he found himself in a position, later in life, to prove this frankly insane adage to be literally untrue.

14. Kristen Bell having an epic and beautiful meltdown about meeting a sloth.

17. The Man Who Had A Conversation With His 12-Year-Old Self

19. Suggested BuzzFeed Articles


As we grow bigger as a website, it has become inevitable (and often fair) that people take potshots at us. It is an understatement to say that not everyone has managed to do that with a sense of humor, proportion, and precision. But this piece did, and it made my fucking day.

22. The cat singing Collective Soul

This cat didn't make my 30 Most Important Cats Of 2012 list, but being important and being wonderful do not always amount to the same thing.

23. Proof That Cats Are Better Than Dogs

Ze Frank and I collaborated on this video addressing, and providing the final word on, a pressing issue of our time.

28. Hedgehogs Vs. Politicians

Another collaborative project with Ze that answered an age-old question.

33. I loved this Rick Santorum music video more than almost anything.

And also now here are some links to more of my favorite buzz.

I just couldn't figure out a way to make these work in list form. NOT EVERYTHING WORKS IN LIST FORM IT TURNS OUT. Who the hell knew?

The end.
