10 Things We Loved About 2012

From Les Miz to anti-Semitic Elmo, the year’s top 10 most Tattler things—none of them (sadly) NSFW

3. Gangnam Style

It’s true what they say: Fifty million Elvis fans can’t be wrong, and neither can nearly a billion YouTube views. Psy’s tour-de-force of formfitting outfits, horsey dance moves, and sexy ladies holding the yoga cow pose is both a glorious zany distillation of our entire, absurdity-drenched, randomly brilliant idea-blender of the best of Internet culture and, if the roomful of Jewish kids singing along in fluent Korean at my cousin’s recent bar mitzvah is any indication, the real harbinger of a globalized world in which, as Oprah says, we are more alike than we are different. Because we all love that frigging video.

It’s “Les Mis.”

Les Misérables (pron.: /leɪ ˈmɪzərɑːb/ or /leɪ ˌmɪzəˈrɑːb/; French pronunciation: ​[le mizeˈʁablə]), colloquially known as Les Mis or Les Miz /leɪ ˈmɪz/…

Whatevs, you purists. This was a delightful and lol inspiring column! //sings Les Miz as she stands in line on Xmas day in frigging Utah with the goys//

Posted under my husband’s name accidental. Sorry. Sheryl Hussien Ginsberg

It’s French. No “z” in Les Misérables — only in the phonetics.
