Anno Paxus: The Top Posts of 2007

king_alfred_statue.jpgSince we’re just killing time until the fat man brings us our HDTVs and train sets, we thought we’d do a recap of the year in Pax Arcana — which was actually far less than a year since we only started this blog in August. Our criteria for picking the top posts was pretty loose. Some made us laugh. Some made us feel queasy. And some even offered original content. Whatever. We half-assed it as usual.

Let’s start with the top post of 2007:

This one has it all: Food, irreverence, politics, current events, a great headline, and baked potatoes. It remains near the top of our most-read list, and is the link we go back when we need reminding why the hell we started this blogsperiment.

Lots more goodness after the jump.

Post of the Year, Sports Division:

One of Father Scott’s earliest, and best, efforts, this piece of original content is the most-read post in the short history of Pax Arcana — largely thanks to the sudden national exposure of Jacoby Ellsbury shortly after this was posted. We would like to thank Father Scott for singlehandedly quintupling our female readership with his reference to the adorable rookie outfielder.

Post of the Year, Science and Technology Division:

Forgive us, but the idea of flatworms pooping out of their heads in a lab on Memorial Drive just cracks us up for some reason.

Post of the Year, Media and Culture Division:

Not only did this post invite spirited debate among the Paxites in comments, but was linked to on a few Wes Anderson message boards, which started all sorts of guff among effete underclassmen clinging to their hipster icons like Blaine Lynoh grips his steering wheel in an ice storm.

Post of the Year, Music Category:

We like Ryan Adams, and we’re glad Father Scott’s around to write about stuff like this.

Post of the Year, Food and Drink Division:

When not replacing himself in the gene pool, Perry Ellis brings his unique knowledge and perspective on food and booze to Pax Arcana. This post represents everything we love about food, even if we’d never cook it in the dishwasher. Seriously. That’s crazy.

Post of the Year, Quiz Division:

Reverend E burst onto the Pax Arcana scene with this post — an interactive thrill ride through one of life’s most important questions: Can you tell the difference between a font and a cookie?

We were never really sure about this one, but perkisabeast liked it, and that’s good enough for us.
