The 16 Most WTF Moments Of 2011

The moments we still don't fully understand. Hopefully the new year will bring clarity.

16. Lady Gaga Serenaded A Vagina

WTF-o-Meter: This gets a 7. It loses points because Gaga aims for WTF, which lessens the impact of everything she does. But gains points for being a story about Lady Gaga and a vagina that doesn't involve the questions surrounding her lady parts. Also she somehow found a way to make this super sweet and endearing, which still doesn't totally make sense.

15. An Earthquake Gently Shook The East Coast

14. George Lucas Made More Changes To "Star Wars"

WTF-o-Meter: This gets a 9.1. It shouldn't be surprising, but people were still pissed about Lucas's last round of changes (Greedo shoots first, etc). No one even thought to be concerned about new ones. It's becoming clearer that he's doing this just to piss us off at this point, right? He has to be the world's wealthiest troll.

13. People Had Sex While Skydiving

WTF-o-Meter: This gets a 34 for the Internet Rule that this video serves as a proof for.

12. Kim Kardashian And Kris Humphries Split After 72 Days Of Wedded Bliss

11. The Rapture Didn't Happen

10. Beyoncé's Baby Bump Folded Strangely

9. A State Trooper Had Sex On A Patrol Car While On The Job

WTF-o-Meter: This was a tough one. But after careful consideration, I'm going to give this an "Oh No You Didn't." A story that is ridiculous both because of the cop having sex on the job, and all the outraged people who pretend that they wouldn't have sex on the job if they could.

8. Mariah Yeater Accused Justin Bieber Of Being Her Baby Daddy

7. 51-Year-Old Doug Hutchison Married 16-Year-Old Courtney Stodden

6. Rebecca Black's "Friday" Ruined The Best Day Of The Week

WTF-o-Meter: Wow a crazy strong rating of 10,073,089. That's exactly how many people's Fridays have been ruined by having to sit through this video. Saturday, meanwhile, is apparently very happy that cocky Friday finally got brought down a few notches.

5. Ryan Gosling Was Not Named People's Sexiest Man Alive

WTF-o-Meter: 63. For the number of reasons that Ryan Gosling is sexier than Bradley Cooper.

4. Charlie Sheen's Meltdown Entertained, But Then Almost Immediately Annoyed Us

WTF-o-Meter: The WTF-o-Meter just spat out "Winning". But it was in quotation marks, so I think it was being ironic. I can't remember a time when I thought "Winning" was a legitimately cool thing to say, but I have a series of Facebook statuses that say otherwise. Boo.

3. Anthony Weiner Sent Naked Photos To A College Co-Ed

2. Casey Anthony Was Acquitted

1. Former Penn State Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky Was Accused Of Many, Many Instances Of Child Molestation
