As you can see by our other 2013 year end post published today, we’re doing a little housecleaning of overdue articles. I originally intended to write this around New Years Day but things got so hectic between getting ready for NYE, familial obligations and heading to Seattle last weekend to celebrate Adam’s birthday. At long last, I found some time to analyze our site statistics.

Once again, I’m limiting articles that were only written in 2013 to be included in the Top 25. Otherwise, we’d have popular posts from previous years infiltrating the list. After compiling the results, one thing is clear. You guys are major pervs ;)

Sure, there are articles about America’s Next Top Model, Teen Wolf and other entertainment, but for the most part, it’s the gratuitous skin-baring posts you like. Celebrities publicly declaring their homosexuality were popular reads as well. Hello, Mr. Wentworth. Check out below what most of our horny readers (I’m talking to you) clicked on last year.

todrick-hall-mean-boyz

Can you believe it’s been a decade since Mean Girls hit theaters? The high school classic marks its tenth anniversary this year. Can you imagine a world without Tina Fey’s bitchy and quotable dialogue? One person I know who definitely can’t is Todrick Hall. He’s back with another parody of the Lindsay Lohan film. This time, he takes it out the hood and to West Hollywood. Regina George has nothing on these bitchy queens.

Hall plays Reggie George, the queen bee of the Ken Dollz aka the gay Plastics. The sun shines on them while everyone else is in their shadow. Popular underwear model Colby Melvin tackles transfer student Cody Heron. Melvin’s real life lover, Brandon Brown, makes a cameo. My favorite of the bunch though is Fetch’in Weiners whose dad invented Grindr. LOL. Kory DeSoto and Willam Belli also appear as Kameron Smith and Ms. Norbury respectively. In lieu of the “Burn Book,” there’s a “Shade Book.” The shade of it all ;)

Check out the parody below. While not as brilliant as Hall’s “Mean Gurlz” clip, it’s still pretty hilarious. My biggest complaint about his latest is the amount of make-up caked on the cast. It’s kinda distracting. Less is more, especially in this case.

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

Hello America. It’s recently come to my attention that Drew Droege has never done a Christmas video before. Shame on him. Tsk, tsk. His Chloe Sevigny impersonations have covered the wonders of Summer, Hallowe’en, Memorial Day and even Valentine’s Day. Thankfully, he’s back and wearing that layered blond wig once again. This time he’s sharing his thoughts about the holiday season. Let the Yuletide fun begin.

For his festive new video, Chloe rocks sheer blouses, animal prints, plenty of accessories and floral pants to reveal what her true love has given during the 12 days of Chrisss-mas. I just love her hilarious mispronunciations. Her gifts include a crib of childish animals, murder of crows, a Louis Vuitton bindlestick, Mamie Gummer (The WB’s Emily Owens, M.D.) and even a crisp slap. Chloe’s love is certainly very generous. Looks like Chloe has been more nice than naughty this year.

Watch the video below and see what else she scored from her true love. Personally, I want what she got on Day 4. Ooh na na.

nyc-cab-drivers-2014-calendars

This isn’t the typical calendar we feature on Homorazzi, but it’s so darn adorable, I couldn’t resist. Philip Kirkman (live432.com) and Shannon McLaughlin (Fauna Photography) gathered New York City’s best-humored taxi drivers for their project. These gentlemen put a face to one of the most dedicated workforces in NYC, driving day and night to transport New Yorkers and our guests alike. I’d gladly take a ride with any of these cabbies. I love drivers that have a sense of humor and these guys demonstrate they have plenty.

According to the website, 100% of net sales proceeds will go to University Settlement. For over 125 years, America’s oldest settlement house have been serving over 30,000 immigrant and working individuals and families every year with basic services like quality education, housing, and literacy programs. They are based in the city’s Lower East Side. Check out the adorably cute calendar below.

Instagram 2013 Year In Review

most-instagrammed-locations-2013

Last year, Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Thailand was the most Instagrammed location. In 2013, it falls all the way to #9. Fret not Thai people, the top slot still remains within the country at Siam Paragon, a shopping mall in Bangkok earning the distinction as Most Instagrammed location of 2013. Random, right?

New to the list this year are Walt Disney World, High Line and Central Park in New York City and the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas. Au revoir Eiffel Tower, you’ve been bumped off the list. Coming up just short in second place is Times Square in New York. If it’s any consolation prize to the Big Apple, it came first on the social media’s most Instagrammed cities of the year list.

Check out the rest of the top locations below, along with stats about the most popular picture and holiday of the year.

If you are of superstitious nature, then today is definitely not your day: Friday the 13th. I learned an interesting fact that Friday the 13th will happen at least once a year but never more than three. If the month begins on a Sunday, then you are destined for a Friday the 13th. The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia.

According to history, there was no sign of a Friday the 13th phobia before the 19th century. One thesis states that the superstition came from the amalgamation of two older thoughts: that 13 is an unlucky number and Friday is an unlucky day. I also read that during the last supper, there were 13 sitting at the table. Therefore, it brings the idea that if you dine with 12 by your side, death may come to one who eats with you. Crazy theory I know but really interesting when you think that Jesus ate his last meal with his twelve disciples and then was hung from a cross. (Meanwhile, everyone reading this article is cancelling their weekend dinner plans or adding more to the bunch.)

So is there any way to save of us from the perils of the cursed day? In my hunt for research on why this day is so damn unlucky, I also came across some ways to keep yourself safe from the things that may (or may not) happen to you on this day of doom. Try them out, they may be helpful to you.

how-the-grinch-stole-crenshaw-parody

You know what I’m thankful for? Todrick Hall, that’s what. The American Idol alum consistently delivers highly-entertaining parodies and spoofs. His ability to put a new (often times ghetto) spin on classic tales is outstanding. This time around he strays from his usual inspirations (Disney films) and targets a classic holiday tale. Hall puts some Gangsta HollyHood flava on How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

While I’m not a huge fan of the Dr. Seuss story, I thoroughly enjoyed How The Grinch Stole Crenshaw. What can I say, I love me a ratchet fairy tale. Todrick released his latest exclusively on WTF (WhatTheFunny.com). It’s Marlon Wayans’ answer to Funny or Die. Check out the clip below.
