We’ll chalk it up to coincidence this time. Today Gawker published a post titled The Worst 50 States in America. Which reminded us of something we published last year: The 50 Worst States in America. But some of the words are in reverse order! So toooootally different.
Oh, and Gawker’s only put up 50-43 today, but five of the eight states they included are also on our list in the 50-40 rank.
Again. Total coincidence.
Gawker’s response, in the form of a tweet to GQ by the list’s author, Richard Lawson: “Ha, what a prickish thing to tweet. Who runs this, an intern? Email us next time and we’ll talk, like grownups.”
