Because no editor would willingly pass by the opportunity to fill a whole article without coming up with a single new idea, it is a tradition in publications like this one to give readers a year-end roundup of the best articles of the year. Since all the articles in this Magazine are of exactly uniform quality, however, we have chosen these features at random.

In January, we explored A Remarkable Example of Crank Linguistics.

In February we learned about some Failed Inventions.

March being a good month for spotting weather, we were invited to a Free Weather Spotter Training Class.

In April, a Microsoft technician kindly answered for us some Frequently Asked Questions About Microsoft Windows.

In May, we discovered an ancient Hittite inscription by King Warpalarpa of Tuwanuwa, whose name is not funny at all.

June brought an opportunity to Test Your Maketing Acumen so that you can see whether you are, in fact, responsible for the approaching revolution.

July brought us our first introduction to Mush Marlow, Private Investigator.

In August we delved into the mysteries of Cuba-You-Quit Way.

In September, the Dialogue of the Spider and the Fly explained, in a metaphorical way, how the Internet works.

October brought us The Adventures of Adventure Man facing pirates and Nazis and flying saucers and sea monsters, so, in other words, pretty much an average day.

In November, we had a chance to read Irving Vanderblock-Wheedle’s most popular poem to date: “If I Had a Time Machine.”

In December, we learned something about how Americans read the Bible from a loaf of bread.

Now onward into 2023, where we might promise you new and exciting things to read, but we would be lying. It will be more of the same.
