2017 is almost at a close and 2018 is ready to pounce with all new horrors and shocking news breaks to make us all feel like complete garbage. Who will be outed as a serial harasser of women in the New Year? Aziz Ansari? Chris Pratt? The rest of the cast of Parks and Recreation? God that was a great show….but too bad, you can’t enjoy it now since they’re all a bunch of women harassers (allegedly).
It has been a banner year for the Coggin, hasn’t it? Sure pageviews are down and I wrote 150 less posts this year than 2016….and 250 less than 2015 (jesus christ) but it was still a BANNER YEAR DAMNIT.
I made a conscious effort to move away from The Onion satire this year and I think it worked out well. Some of you may disagree, and you are wrong in doing so and you should feel very, very badly about yourselves. HOW DARE YOU.
Here are some of the pieces I enjoyed writing this year:
