HOP HOP-A DOOBIE-DE-BOO

I want to make almost all of these recipes because they look amazing.
17. The Jewel Caterpillar
I find it hard to believe this creature is real, but it totally is.

I mean, what’s not to like?
13. That time Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, and Benedict Cumberbatch went to Hooters together
So this happened and I am SO SAD I WASN’T THERE.
12. The Fox Who Got Marshmallows For His Birthday
Midnighttwice is a totally awesome BuzzFeed user who basically owns a menagerie. She has dogs and cats and a super derpy camel and she’s also the woman who owns Yeah Lamb. So I pretty much love her. That is all.
11. The Drunk Baby Meme
10. Tits And Ass
I love a good animal joke. The caption for this image reads “Always maintain a firm grip when holding a tit.” The entire post is an ode to great tits and an pretty sweet ass.
9. Everything Petran Has Posted

BuzzFeed has a pretty strong pro-cat bias, in case you hadn’t noticed. However, I prefer dogs and birds and turtles because they’re way better and because cats are jerks.
3. The Grumpy Cat Compendium
So I’m pretty vocally anti-cat (trust me, the entire BuzzFeed office knows this), but Grumpy Cat frowned her way into my heart this year. This list sums up all the reasons why I love her.
2. 17 Pinterest Fails
As a person who fails at all things craft, I totally empathize with these people. Good job, good effort.
1. This Is Title
Hands down, my favorite BuzzFeed post this year was This Is Title. When I came across it during the course of my day, I laughed and sent it to a few of my coworkers. Since they all laughed, we decided to promote the post to the front page as a joke. And you guys, you awesome wonderful users, totally ran with it. I have never, in my year and a half at BuzzFeed, seen such a fantastic response from our users.
Here’s a sampling of the Facebook comments, which are spot-on.
Our commenters had a field day!
At one point it turned into a Spiderman thread, which was awesome.
Eventually we just started handing out badges, all willy-nilly.
Anyways, This Is Title reminded me why I love the BuzzFeed community so much. You guys share interesting, funny, cute, informative things on our website and I really, really love you all. Thank you for a wonderful 2012!
