In 2011, Internet Supercuts became even more specific, more thorough, more exhausting, more ridiculous, and more amusing than ever before (besides maybe the 1930s, but we have no way of confirming this).
Here, to honor this ongoing trend of editors spending more and more hours painstakingly working to amuse us for two minutes, is our list of The 11 Most Super Supercuts of 2011.
We were originally gonna cut all of these Supercuts into one giant Supercut Supercut, but we figured we’d spare your brain the pre-holiday melting. Enjoy!
11. “It’s The 90s”
Obviously someone made a Supercut of characters saying “It’s the 90s.” It’s the 10s.
10. 80 Titular Lines In 2 Minutes
This video truly is…one of The 11 Best Supercuts Of 2011.
It’s Hanukkah. It’s the internet. That can only mean one thing: It’s time for……
10. Stealth Mode Kitty
Just…take all the candy. You win.
We still maintain that 2011 was The Year Of Nic Cage, but in terms of awesomely ridiculous things that make you simply say “Yep, that’s that guy,” R. Kelly was undoubtedly his closest musical equivalent. To generally help the universe, here is our extremely necessary retrospective of The 6 Greatest R. Kelly Moments Of 2011, beginning with a brand-new exciting announcement.
6. R. Announces 32 New Chapters Of “Trapped In The Closet”
TMZ caught up with R. this week and asked him about Trapped In The Closet, everyone’s favorite whatever medium you would call that thing, and R. unpromptedly replied that he’s written thirty-two new chapters of the epic, but doesn’t have the funding for it yet. Let me just scratch out the name on my Meals On Wheels check I was about to mail anddddd…voila! MORE TRAPPED!!! (Kidding! Obviously I wasn’t giving to charity and already write weekly checks to R. Kelly.)
Here’s R’s Breaking Trapped Update:

2011 was a great year for television, with the acting, direction and writing of many shows beginning to surpass that of film. And with good TV comes amazing spoilers, those pivotal plot points that must be kept secret from people too lazy to watch sh*t as it airs.
But you know what, fun-ruiners? It’s the end of the year, and if you haven’t cranked up the ol’ DVR by now to get around to these shows, just face it already: You never will. So why don’t you just read them now? A bunch of us VH1 staffers got together and compiled a list of the best spoilers of the year. So why are still waiting? Here are The 12 Biggest TV Spoilers of 2011. Spoiler: There’s a lot of incest and murder.
Oh, and definitely forward this to your co-worker or friend who wakes up every night screaming “NO SPOILERS” mid-fever dream.
12. American Horror Story
Tate Is Vivian’s Rubber Suit Wearing Demon Baby-Daddy And Violet Is Way Dead. The first time I watched AHS I had nightmares, which is apparently all the more reason to keep watching as I’m completely hooked. More baby trolls and drowned nurses, please! Ryan Murphy is fearless when it comes to his FX hit, sending main characters into the afterlife and making the world’s most precious teen killer the rapist of his true love’s mom. Talk about a deal breaker, amirite Liz Lemons of the world? Poor, angsty Violet – first she learns that she’s actually dead after shoving a bucket of pills in her mouth, her body frozen in the Michael Jackson “Thriller” position in the basement. But then to find out her murderous boyfriend also raped her own mother while wearing a rubber sex suit — AND planted his demon seed inside of her, fathering her new sibling? That makes my brain “asdfghjkl,” it’s so effed up. Which is why I can’t turn this goddamn show off. — Kate Spencer
11. Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event
Spoiler Alert: They Don’t Live Happily Ever After. We all knew that Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kris Humphries was a money-making scam and a spectacle that was equal parts disgusting and disgusting. But that doesn’t mean the world was prepared to say goodbye to this holy union less than three months into the marriage. Call me optimistic, but Kim’s sisters are actually in long-term relationships (sure, both relationships are ridiculous, but there’s a shred of love there, I think) and Kris and Bruce Jenner have spent twenty years happily evolving their faces together, so it’s not like she doesn’t have some foundation to build on. Despite the fact that Kim is a product of a reality-obsessed country, I hoped a part of her reality was that she was not completely full of shit and that her “marriage” would not make a mockery of the institution. “Gays can’t get married but this woman can?” was the rally cry after the split was announced. You can “NO H8″ all you want, but what Kim proved was that you can also get married with “No <3." — Liz Black
Because I am kind, I put actual shocking spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk. (God, just read them.)
There are two types of tv commercials: Ads that feature adorable animals doing adorable things and we love them because we just see animals and are happy even if they’re being used for advertising purposes, and ads that do not feature adorable animals (and are therefore the worst).
To celebrate the former, and to hopefully convince the latter to stop hating cute animals, please enjoy this 2011 Year In Cute look back at the 10 Most Adorable Animal Commercials Of 2011:
10. Shelter Pet Project Meow-nologue
The Shelter Pet Project – an organization committed to promoting pet adoption through adorable animal inner-monologues – released this series of ads taking you inside the cute but confused minds of newly adopted pets. The ads are really well-done and pretty accurate, other than the pets never yelling “FOOD FOOD FOOD FOOD FOOD”:
You can check out the other 3 ads in the adorable 4-part saga here.
9. Travelers Insurance Doggie Date
After last year’s notoriously tragic commercial about the ever-worrying dog desperate to protect his bone, the Travelers people decided to reverse bum-us-the-hell-out with this follow-up commercial where that dog falls in love, goes on a series of dates, and eventually raises a family. Although, if he was that worried about a bone, how worried is he gonna be about his pups? We’ll worry about that in the Threequel.
In terms of utter ridiculousness, no celebrity had a 2011 like Nicolas Cage. Sure, Charlie Sheen might’ve had his moments, as did the always-reliable Kardashians and Lindsay Lohan, but none of their selfconcious and quickly-tiresome antics held a candle to what Cage accomplished on the WTF front, as he seemed to be involved in new, uniquely-insane escapades both on and off the screen every single month of the year.
To salute Cage’s singularly insane 2011, and to give him some more memories to store in his pyramid tomb, here’s a list of the 8 Most Cage-tastic Nicolas Cage Moments Of 2011:
8. Cage Appears On Serbian Biology Textbook
In late November, the internet uncovered this Serbian Biology Textbook that featured on its cover a photo of Nicolas Cage and Holly Hunter from the highly educational Coen Brothers film Raising Arizona:
This wasn’t a random one-off book, either – it was a standard middle school biology textbook in Belgrade classrooms from 1993 to 2001. Random? Yes. But Nicolas Cagey? EXTREMELY.
As we said at the time, if we’re surprised by anything here, it’s that Nicolas Cage is standing in front of a rose garden and not somehow another picture of Nicolas Cage.
We all know how cute dogs and cats are; any quick search on the ol’ Internet dot com can tell you that. But forget the pandas and otters and meerkats of the world for just one day – if you dig a little deeper, you can find adorable photos of almost any type of animal, including completely disgusting ones (sorry, those ones! But it’s true.)
In honor of these oft-overlooked internet outcasts, ranging from the forgotten to the mundane to the straight-up gross, here’s a collection of The 30 Most Underratedly Cute Animals:
National Geographic is holding their 2011 Photo Contest right now, and a bunch of the pictures are already online and surprise! They’re ridiculously amazing. As in, borderline ‘too good for a random internet post’ amazing. TGFI. But here’s one anyway!
Below, here’s a brief sampling of the phenomenal photos submitted so far – Click any for Full Size:

Today is 11/11/11 you guys!!! And this is the internet! You know what that means: Time to MAKE A WISH for countless 11/11/11 themed list posts that don’t really make any sense but it’s the internet so NOT doing one actually makes less sense. Make sense? You better ELEVEN believe it!
Because we at BWE are absolutely no better than the rest of the internet, and are in fact quite a bit worse than a significant portion of it (like all the news parts), here is our contribution to the obligatory 11/11/11 list fray, ranking the 11 Best Elevens That Ever Elevened. Crack open some un-elevened bread and get ready to read the word ‘eleven’ a bunch more times:
11. The Eleventh Hour
How great was this book? So great that I never found a single hidden clue or figured out any part of any mystery, and I STILL loved it because there’s awesomely-drawn animals and cool rhymes. A true ambassador of elevenship.
10. Sesame Street “Eleven” Rap
“My name is Eleven and I’m here to say, I’m the Elevenest number in the U-S-A!” (not an actual line, but it should be). This rapping kid actually rules! He’s a veritable Light D.
