New Year's Day Special: Dave Barry’s 2011 Year in Review

So the nation is clearly in good hands, and as the troubled year finally comes to an end

Here's another excellent end of year retrospective from that gut-busting print humorist, Dave Berry:

We'll kick it off with Dave's opening 'graphs:
It was the kind of year that made a person look back fondly on the gulf oil spill.

Granted, the oil spill was bad. But it did not result in a high-decibel, weeks-long national conversation about a bulge in a congressman’s underpants. Which is exactly what we had in the Festival of Sleaze that was 2011. Remember? There were days when you could not escape The Bulge. At dinnertime, parents of young children had to be constantly ready to hurl themselves in front of their TV screens, for fear that it would suddenly appear on the news in high definition. For a brief (Har!) period, The Bulge was more famous than Justin Bieber.
Here's the rest, via the Washington Post:
Whatever you do, don't suffer a hernia from all yer gut-busting laughter [wink].

Happy New Year, Everyone.
