#18 Synergy

Just like everything else in today's world, someone who felt they were brighter, smarter and technically superior to the rest of us (and had some working knowledge of the Greek language) had to come up with a fancy way of saying "let's work together."

Congratulations, buddy, you've accomplished basically nothing as the phrase "let's work together" was doing a perfect job of getting the point across before you came along with your fancy, uppity speak.  

Synergize this.

#17 Behold - Dickipedia

Your a dick, we're a dick....seems like today everyone is a dick, in some form or another.  

Ok - maybe that was a little harsh.  NOT.  

Richards?  Are you there???  Again, we digress.  Moving on!

We've all got a little bit of a dick inside us, and this wonderful off-shoot inspired by the mothership that is Wikipedia chronicles the who's who of dicks in the public sector, past and present alike.  You would think that it would be made obvious through the social media outlets, news and other, worthier blogs than this, who the societal dicks of today are; but it's great to be able to  see all of the biggest dicks out there in one place - Dickipedia.

Also, be sure to check out the "random page" link from the main menu for a Russian Roulette style of thumbing through the dicks.

#16 Spuds MacKenzie

In the late 80's, a time of sorrow and pain, a time with no class, no style, nothing. One little Bull Terrier was there to rescue us.

I give you the single greatest advertising bone (no pun intended) ever thrown to beer drinkers— Spuds Mackenzie.

This "happenin' dude" was first bequeathed upon us during a Super Bowl ad. By the end of the game, the little pooch was a marketing legend.

Alas, Spuds was not without his naysayer's. In 1992, the Center for Science in the Public Interest, along with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, charged that Anheuser-Busch was pitching the dog to children. However, the mighty Spuds rose again in victory as the Federal Trade Commision found no evidence to support that allegation. Unfortunately, the ads were dropped anyways.

Here's a little known and unfortunate fact, Spuds was actually a bitch.

I know. I know. I feel like less of a man as well.

Nonetheless, here's to Spuds. This Bud's on me.
