Dave Barry’s 2022 Year in Review


The best thing we can say about 2022 is: It could have been worse.


For example, we could have had nuclear Armageddon. This briefly appeared to be a possibility, at least according to the president, who broke the news in October at (Why not?) a Democratic Party fundraiser at the home of a wealthy donor in New York City. That must have been an exciting event! One moment everybody’s standing around chewing hors d’oeuvres, and the next moment WHOA WHAT DID HE JUST SAY?


The next day, after the news media ran a bunch of scary headlines, the White House Office of Explaining What the President Actually Meant explained that the president wasn’t suggesting that we were facing Armageddon per se, but was merely, as is his wont, emitting words, one of which happened to be “Armageddon,” and everybody should just calm down.

So we dodged a bullet there.


And there were other positive developments in 2022:


— Millions of Americans on social media realized — it took them a while, but they finally got there — that nobody wants to know how they did on “Wordle.”

— For the 13th consecutive year, the New York Yankees failed to even get into the World Series.

— Best of all, the looming apocalyptic threat of catastrophic global climate change was finally eliminated thanks to the breakthrough discovery that the solution — it has been staring us in the face all this time — was to throw food at art.

Ten best “Best of” lists: Our list


With the abundance of Best Of Year lists clogging up the internet every December, it’s hard to know which ones are worth your time. Luckily for you, the tireless team at The Beaverton has read all of them. That’s right, we’ve read every single Best Of list published this year anywhere on the entire world wide web and compiled this handy list of best lists so you know which lists of bests are the best of the Best Of lists.


1. Best Albums of The Year – vinylbeats.com
Not only did you not listen to any of these albums, you’ve never heard of them. Time to scurry back to the stuff you liked in high school, grumbling about how there’s no good music anymore.


2. Best Podcasts – earwire.net
These podcast hosts do their own rambling ads, which are somehow longer than the podcast episodes themselves.


3. Best Online Essays of The Year – lukewarm.com
All of these were written by the kind of people who own brownstones, buy their luggage at the airport, and can taste the difference between sea and Himalayan salt.


4. The Year’s Best Books No One Has Read, Not Even the People Who Made This List – smarterthanu.org
You’re not the only person whose attention span got pancaked by the pandemic. Still, you should really read more.


5. Seventeen Crypto-Bros Who Lost a Fortune This Year – FinancialSavvy.ca
Admit it, schadenfreude feels pretty good when it’s directed at loudmouth douchebags.


6. Best Slideshows of Has-Been Sitcom Kids – PopCultureVulture.com
Can you believe these former cuties had the gall to age? Two of them even died. They look terrible!


7. Best Memes That Reduce a Complicated Issue to a Trite Falsehood – rightpryde.com
Why provide evidence or nuance when you can throw one of these into a comment thread?


8. The Year’s Best Artichokes – nytimes.com
Which were this year’s best bulbous edible thistles? Thanks to the paper of record, you no longer have to wonder.


9. Best Fan Theories About the Missing Footage from The Magnificent Ambersons – etsy.com
The studio’s recutting of Orson Welles’s sophomore film led to these suppositions from cinephiles, including the speculation of a lost scene where George tries to save the family from destitution by winning a “swivelling hips contest.”


10. Best Beetles – stuffwhitepeoplelike.com
Will “dung” finally snatch the crown from those snooty bombardiers?

I second that.

Basically, this decenny has been a real bull**** so far, and doesn't look like it'll stop anytime soon.

Recall the meme, a year ago:  


Actually, I haven't had very good luck with New Years. Can I check out certified pre owned years?

The 2022 Year in Review


Porn watchers in the Netherlands are mainly younger men who mainly use their phones to browse PornHub, according to statistics published by the pornographic website. “Milf” remained the most popular search term, and Lana Rhoades was identified by the website as the top porn star for Dutch viewers even though the retired actress, who now leads the 3 Girls 1 Kitchen podcast, has since denounced the commercial porn industry in favor of amateur content platforms.


According to the website, the Netherlands ranked 13th among the top countries by traffic, up two spots from last year’s 15th place. Just 29 percent of Dutch traffic to the pornographic website is generated by women. The website said 26 percent of its Dutch audience is 18-24 years of age, while 25 percent are between the ages of 25 and 34, and 16 percent are from 35 to 44. The rest is almost evenly split between the 45-54 demographic, the 55-64 age range, and those 65 and over.


The Searches that Defined 2022

Every year, the Insights team and Pornhub’s statisticians sift through data from billions of visits to see what content defined the year. Those that follow this blog know that Pornhub’s top searches are often influenced by pop culture and other worldwide events. Many of these terms define 2022 not just on Pornhub but in mainstream media as well.
