I should stress that I don't for a minute think that BAMartin just went out and indulged in some outright plagiarism or anything like that. Some stranger somewhere way back at the other end of the long e-mail chain that ended in her inbox did, though.

If y'all haven't checked out, you definitely should. It is hi-effin'-larious. Most of it's free, but if you subscribe, you'll get a couple of chances each month to submit entries for Top ___ lists like the one above.
