Priceless. No idea how the author could put them in any ranking order, though... how on earth do you decide between an Oompa-Loompa and Badger-Lovin' Beavis, or Cameron Diaz and the Leprechaun???

It's just that whenever I see a hammer or box of nails or even a picture of Karen Carpenter - that's the song that leaps into my head. Go »
