    I’m not exactly sure what to make of #4, but it is my favorite.

  2. Not sure how Canadian would make any top 10 list.

  3. Clark Goble says:

    It’s the effect of the Tragically Hip farewell.

  4. (Steve is Canadian.)

  5. A Turtle Named Mack says:

    Fries and Gravy

  6. Aaron Brown says:

    This will lead to the sort of mirth and merriment the scriptures warn us about.

  7. “(Steve is Canadian.)”

    Gotcha. The only options for the list that made sense to me were:

    1. Terms used to describe what poutine smells like
    2. Common words to describe hockey players
    3. Descriptive items you never want to list on a resume
    4. Words that have an unintentional comedic effect

  8. If you do your research into past rankings, you’ll find that I often find ways to insult America Jr.

  9. “If you do your research into past rankings, you’ll find that I often find ways to insult America Jr.”

    Bravo, sir. Bravo

    (slow clap)

  10. “Not sure how Canadian would make any top 10 list.”

    Top 10 North American Nationalities, not including Central America :P

  11. Top 10 silly accents

    Top 10 tuxedoes

  12. What about “politically” and “correct”? I hear that set at church all the time, used interchangeably with “great” and “abominable.”

    And are three word alternatives allowed? If so, consider “gay” and “feminist” and “intellectual.” Also, “lions” and “tigers” and “bears.”
