Best of 2012

Leave a Comment


At Amusing Planet we cover anything that is offbeat or interesting, and that includes a wide range of topics. With over 400 articles published during the past 12 months, it’s hard to decide which ones are better than the rest as I attempt to prepare the annual “best-of” collection. To make the task easier, I have split up the collection into different topics – the ones that we write about the most. So lets look back at some of the best and most read stories of 2012.
