The Bottom Ten
The Bottom Ten you read here has its roots in the Bottom Ten column I read in the Los Angeles Times growing up in LA. That column was written by a very funny man named Steve Harvey, who is still writing his.

And while it might have the same general tone as Mr Harvey's column, I have gone to great lengths to avoid stealing original Bottom Ten classics like Error Force and Texas at El Intercepted Paso. This means that all Bottom Ten awards we issue, like the Tostitios Plaque and Sgt Bilko Trophy, are original.

I've been writing The Bottom Ten off and on for most of this century and writing it is one of my great pleasures. I'm glad you like it, too. - gk


 
   
I write so you will remember it the rest of your lives.
There is no other reason to do it, folks, none whatsoever.
