Well, the first week of March Madness is over and, if you're anything like me, you still have a perfect bracket. (My bracket.)
However, most of you reading this are probably not like me since most people-- except maybe my clones-- are not like me. (It is also debatable whether or not my clones are really people and whether they should have the right to vote. I do not care if they have the right to vote, but one day I will harvest their organs. Unless, of course, I am a clone and don't know it, in which case, I am against that.)

For as long as man has existed, there have been board games. In fact, archaeologists now think that cavemen invented fire so that they could play backgammon late into the night. (Also, they would be able to use the fire to see if dinosaurs were heading towards their caves.)
Nowadays, board games are a fun way to pass the time if there is a power outage in your neighborhood and you can’t watch TV. They are great for children and also for college students who want to do something while pregamming before a night out (a case in which some rules might have to be modified to allow for alcohol consumption).
One example of a popular board game is Monopoly. Monopoly is so popular that Hasbro has made roughly 1,000,000 different versions of it. I do not like Monopoly (not even the SpongeBob version) because it takes too long to play and I have little patience. Also, people always play Monopoly with different rules and one person always takes the game way too seriously and another person always takes the game not seriously at all (me) and might even try to cheat and take extra fake money (me again). Despite this, after hours and hours of extensive research, I have determined that Monopoly is not one of the worst board games ever.

My grandmother always has several different gossip magazines, newspaper clippings, cartoons, articles, etc., etc., in her purse that she can take out at a moment's notice to show you. Recently, she showed me the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog, which I had never seen before. This is actually very surprising since when I looked up the catalog on Wikipedia, I learned that it was founded in 1848-- the year of my birth.
What makes the catalog great is that it has even more ridiculous overpriced crap than those SkyMall catalogs on airplanes. Here are the Top 10 Products for sale in the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog, or simply the Top 10 New Products, since there really can't be any products better than these. And when I say "better", what I really mean is "worse".

There are four requirements you have to meet in order to be on this list. You must be:
· A dog
· In a movie
· Able to talk (remember, you must also be a dog)
I didn’t say making the Top 10 Coolest Talking Movie Dogs list was going to be easy! Without further ado, here are the ten most awesome linguistically-gifted canines from the big screen. (Please note: If your favorite movie talking dog didn’t make the cut, I don’t care.)

There seem to be new inventions popping up every single day. That is because on most days at least one person in the world has invented something. I know this is probably true because on most days I invent at least one amazing new invention. However, since I am not handy, I cannot actually build these inventions (so they are really only great ideas).
Thomas Edison was such a good inventor that they named a town in New Jersey after him.
Here is a list of some of the greatest inventions in history:
- Fire (mankind’s first great invention)
- Remote Control
- Dog (humans invented dogs by breeding nice wolves—I saw a special about it on Animal Planet)
- Spark Plugs
- Paper (I know that this was invented in China)
- Funny Hats
Just kidding with that last one! We didn’t invent time—it existed even before people did! Someone did invent the clock though.
Many inventions are good, but some end up being bad. With new technology comes more complex inventions and a possible robot revolt. If you have ever watched Battlestar Galactica, you know that Cylons look and act like real people, but they really want to kill us.
Here’s a list of my Top 10 Inventions. Since I have not actually created these products and do not own any patents for them, you can steal these ideas. Actually, most of these things probably already exist and I just don’t know it.

Do you want to win money? How about $10,000? How about $1,000,000? Well, all you have to do is buy my new book, "Jeffrey the Great Tells You How to Win A Million Dollars". It can be downloaded to your Kindle or Nook for just $750 (I had to lower the price down from $1,000 because sales were bad).
Just kidding! We all know that I don't know how to write books (or even how to read)! However, I do know how you can make lots of money and win exciting prizes too! It is by going on a game show! (Exclamation point overload in this paragraph.)

Oh, hello there. I am having an amazing dinner party and you're invited. You're invitation is in the mail (I am very old-fashioned and don't believe in e-mail). What's great about this dinner party is that it is a magical dinner party. You see, I was able to invite anyone, fictional or nonfictional, living or dead. In addition to you and I, I was allowed to invite ten others (I cheated and there are actually a few more than ten other guests). Everyone else has already RSVP'd (they'll all be attending). I hope you can make it!
We want the dinner party to be cool, don't we? (We do.) Well, no one is cooler than Wolverine. He probably won't talk too much, but that's fine; when he does talk, everyone will listen. We will have a special smoking corner for Wolverine for when he wants to have a cigar (since we don't want everyone else to get black lungs).
He needs a fork and a spoon, but not a knife.

If you're anything like me (and if you're reading this, there's a good chance that you are me re-reading my work), then your bracket is completely and hopelessly busted. Thanks a lot Missouri and Florida State. There goes any chance that I'll be applying to either of your grad schools.
Luckily for us, Yahoo has something called the Second Chance Bracket. Basically, if you predict the rest of the games correctly and win a bunch of tie breakers you win $5,000.
Since my method of picking teams by analyzing games didn't work last time, I'll be picking winners based on college mascots. This is probably what I should've been doing all along. Let's take a look at who's going to be squaring off on Thursday and Friday.

Drum roll please. (*Drum, drum, drum, drum, drum* sound.) Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, (and old people too,) it is time for the article you’ve all been waiting for…JEFFREY’S TOP 10 FILMS OF 2011!!!!!!! (Look how many exclamation points I used—how obnoxious!!!!)
As always, Oscar failed to nominate many of the year’s best pictures and instead honored several undeserving works (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, War Horse, The Help). I am, of course, not referring to the Oscars, the awards show, but to the film rankings done by my great uncle Oscar, who’s a bit of a film buff himself. Just kidding (I don’t have a great uncle Oscar)! I really did mean the Oscars! In fact, you should check out the Jeffreys, which I hear are actually more credible and a million times better than the Oscars now.
All in all, 2011 was a very weak year for movies. There were actually only two movies this year that blew me away. And, while there were some other films that were very good, most weren’t great, four-star films.
Without further ado, here they are:
