Before I clicked on this I was thinking, numbered list, we’ve seen the topic before, how good can it be... And then I laughed so hard I hoped no one in my office walked by and saw me because they would think I’m a crazy person.

My favorite was the honey-do list stuck in supplementals, and the ability to see what other honey-do lists are in there is taken away. Made me truly LOL.

Nice! The Mahalo comment made me literally LOL. Mostly because I could actually visualize it happening...

Nice list! Like the others, I also laughed at the Mahalo comment and really liked the two about the chore list. Unfortunately my wife wouldn’t understand the supplemental index and then she would probably punch me.

I am in denial Vanessa hasn’t written any posts on the Zillow blog yet (that I can see) - they do need to fix that sidebar loading first thing.

Great list. I also LOL’d at the Mahalo comment, like Jennifer said, more the visualization of punching a pretty wahine. My favorite was #19 though. Somehow I take it as a personal affront if I see a terrible campaign from one of the candidates. Thanks for the laugh this morning!

#19 hit a bit close to home for me too, Rhea. At this point I am leaning towards Obama or John McCain for no other reason than they’re the only ones I see ANYWHERE when I do political news searches.

Andy, I wrote one back when I first started, and I more recently wrote one for their other blog (although that doesn’t contain any new information for anyone here, since it’s a recap of some posts I did on my own blog). I need to do more, but I’ve been busy working! :) http://www.zillowblog.com/a-lot-can-happen-in-three-days-at-zillow/2007/07/ http://www.geekestateblog.com/the-power-of-search/

#8 was classic. Great list...it was very hard not to laugh loud enough to draw attention from my co-workers.

That was great. I am going to have to be a follower and say that the Mahalo thing is what got me.

Loved it! Philipp Lenssen cracked me up, because I do know how to spell it. :)

It was really great. So hard to pick a favorite. Um, I like almost really did get my nearly 9 year old blogging because dammit if Stephan’s Spencer’s kid can make money.... But the chores in supplemental and ignoring lists I think were my favs. I never remember Philipp’s spelling. We need a rhyme or something, like two Ls and Ss are sweeter than one L. Or think LPPSS. LiPPSS?

Thanks for all the great comments, gang. Both this year and last year it has cracked me up to hear what people’s favorites are. I didn’t expect the Mahalo line to be so well-liked. My favorite is the one about Linkin Park. I dunno why, I just remember that coming into my head a month or two ago and thinking, "Wow, that’s a great one." Anyway, next year’s version is already in progress. :-)

Missed this entirely, then caught it thanks to crazycat’s comment.  It’s printed and on the office wall.  On that note I’m going upstairs to visit with my wife ....

I hate to admit it, but i made a snorting laugh noise to this. A few went over my head, but not enough to stop me looking insane infront of the office.Thanks Matt

hey, this post is hilarious i feel totally identify with it... one more line could be you are in the underground and read a billboard that mentions any given keyphrase you have worked really hard on optimising lately eg: ’learn english online’, so you innately get a 2 seconds mental illusion where the keyphrase/keyword is underlined and hyperlinked to your target page... : ) I get that one a lot... seo madness!
