Dave Barry’s Month-by-Month Year in Review is always an annual favorite since he gets “that to be politically humorous, it has to be based on truth”. You just can’t write about politics and culture any snarkier than the irony sniffer Dave! And yeah, 2011 made 2010 look good.

BAD NEWS: The economy remained critically weak, with rising unemployment, a severely depressed real-estate market, the near-collapse of the domestic automobile industry and the steep decline of the dollar.
GOOD NEWS: Windows 7 sucked less than Vista.
BAD NEWS: Ominous problems loomed abroad as — among other difficulties — the Afghanistan war went sour, and Iran threatened to plunge the Middle East and beyond into nuclear war.
GOOD NEWS: They finally got Roman Polanski.
