There are enough top "whatever" lists for 2008 out there on the net this week to keep thousands of movie critics, bloggers and just plain argumentative folks commenting well into Spring about who's right and who's wrong. I'm personally partial to Salon.com's 2008 "Live! Nude! Puppies! The Year in Viral Video" list which leads off with the video above about two English men who are reunited with the lion they raised as a baby in their London flat nearly 40 years ago. Tell me you didn't feel that!
There are more, of course, including one from that wonderful little French girl Capucine on Vimeo who stole everyone's hearts with her story about crocodiles and hippopotamuses.
Salon embeds a few additional videos in the article but provides links to many more.
What did Salon miss? What did we miss here? What were your favorite videos of 2008? What videos were important? Were any newsworthy? We want to hear from you on this icy Saturday, the first of 2009! Comment early - comment often!
