Wow, what a year! There were ups, there were downs, there were laughs, there were tears, there were days, there were months, there were low pressure systems, there were sandbanks. But most of all there were things. And though others may have impressed you with their looks back at the things of 2014, none of those OTHER lists are as comprehensive and definitive as this, my specially curated List Of The Things Of 2014, a retrospective of the things that in 2014, we could say without fear of contradiction, were.
1. These sheep
Wow, remember these sheep? No? Well, someone does!
If there's one thing you can say about 2014, it's "wow, this year people ate some oranges". Have truer words ever been written?
3. The guy from Blue's Clues
What did THIS guy get up to in 2014? Nobody knows! Apart from presumably his family and friends!
4. Exercise bikes
When we look back at 2014, will we remember it as the year of exercise bikes? We might!
Some people might have thought we'd be "over" bricks by 2014, but no, bricks carried on as strong as ever!
6. An angry leopard
It's amazing how often this year our lives were impacted by the existence of an angry leopard. I sure didn't see that coming a year ago!
7. President Barack Obama
A lot of good judges think 2014 was the year that President Barack Obama was more president than he'd ever been. The thousands of people abducted by Mr Obama during the year would agree!
Whether you live in the city, the country, or the bottom of the ocean, one thing's for sure: 2014 had trains in it!
9. Hunting in bright clothing
It was almost like an epidemic in 2014, as millions of people suddenly put on bright clothing and hunted!
If you're like me, you were stunned by how many machines were in places in this past year!
Against all expectations, writing kept happening!
WOW! What a year!
