And yet, despite his immature antics and awkwardly suggestive underwear ads, you have to admit the guy is talented. Whether you harbor a secret crush on Justin Bieber, or can’t stand the sight of him, we can all join together in appreciation of that most sacred celebrity ritual: the roast.

Bieber put on his big boy pants and sat through the hilarious, but obviously painful experience of being made fun of by fellow celebs. Comedy Central gathered everyone from Kevin Hart to Martha Stewart, Ludacris to Shaquille O’Neal in order to take jabs at the easiest target in Hollywood.

Cursing yourself for not getting tickets earlier? Fear not! Even Beiber-haters without televisions can enjoy the jokes at his expense. Here we’ve crafted a thorough collection of wild and funny jokes from the Justin Bieber Roast to get you up to date in no time. You’ll find some of the best quotes from the Justin Bieber roast, ranging from jabs at Justin, to pokes at other presenters, and even a couple great punches thrown by the Beib himself.

 So whether you love him or hate him, can’t get enough of him or can’t even handle him right now, get ready to have a good time. Don’t worry Bie-liebers, though some of the jokes are a little more heavy-handed than others, the Bieb did a great job of laughing along. He may even forgive you for laughing too.

<![CDATA[The Best Movies That Sort of Leave You Hanging]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-open-ended-movies/anncasano SPOILER ALERT! This list discusses the endings of many popular films.

Here’s the deal. Storytellers craft a narrative that has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Audiences spend about two hours, hopefully becoming invested in the story, and at the conclusion, there’s a payout. The writer is expected to wrap up the story, giving audiences some kind of closure. Except, of course, when a screenwriter doesn’t pen a cut and dry ending, and instead chooses to leave the audience hanging with a serious cliffhanger or otherwise open-ended movie.

This list ranks the best films that have ambiguous endings. You may ask yourself why a screenwriter would choose to leave an audience gasping, “What the heck happened, how does the story end!?” Some spectators don’t think it’s fair and feel cheated when they don’t know what really happens, while others believe that it’s sort of cool and interesting to work through plot points upon repeated viewings and attempt to analyze a conclusion.

Of course, everyone has their own interpretations of these open-ended films. For every person who watched American Psycho and thought that Patrick Bateman was really a murderer, there is another person who is absolutely positive that he was just delusional.

Controversy is just one of the reasons why these movies are so brilliant; they create thought through deconstruction. All of these films contain multiple layers, each features plot points that beg to be examined, and several ultimately blur the line between reality and fantasy. We can’t trust our eyes and we have to ask questions. We are forced to think outside the proverbial box to try to create order out of a filmmaker’s chaos.

Have a favorite open-ended film that’s not on this list? Let us know in the comments section and be sure to cast your votes for the greatest movies below, despite (or maybe because of) their ambiguous and unclear endings.

Nothing in this world sounds better than chowing down on some truly regretful late night snacks. Where can you turn to on these desperate evenings? Why, your local convenience store of course! Like a good friend, your neighborhood corner store will always be there for you when you drunkenly need it! But there's plenty to be wary of as far as c-stores go. These gas station mini-marts and Slurpee-serving hot spots are full of tricks and there are lots of convenience store secrets the owners and staff don't want you to know.
For instance, all convenience store locations near you (and anywhere, really) are definitely intentional, with most stores employing extensive demographic reports so that they can maximize their foot traffic and sales. How about how convenience stores tend to pass over those pesky health regulations, even if it means your hot dog has been sitting out longer than is probably safe. You knew it was nasty convenience store food, but who knew it was that gross? Don't even get us started on convenience store bathrooms. Ick.
Whether it's the shocking statistics behind how much beer is sold at US convenience stores, or why you can't get a Coke at your favorite corner store (just Pepsi!), these convenience store secrets will definitely surprise you. So cuddle up with a Big Gulp and some Flamin' Hot Cheetos and upvote the most shocking c-store secrets that shed new light on how these shops really run their business.

<![CDATA[The Trashiest Spring Break Destinations]]> http://ranker.com/list/trashy-spring-break-destinations/jacob-shelton Spring break is here bruh, we hope you've been hitting the tanning bed and getting your weight lift on, 'cause you don't want to be the only dude on the beach that doesn't have a tanned out bangin' six pack. Every year around March, coeds from all over the country (and possibly the world), throw off the shackles of education and head to the spring break party destination of their choice to soak up some rays, drink A LOT of alcohol, and party like they don't know their finals are just around the corner. We could have very easily put together a list of the best places to study during spring break, but what's the fun in that? This is the list of the trashiest spring break destinations we could find, and boy is it trashy. 

Long gone is the time when MTV would hightail it down to a party hotspot for a week to shoot dance parties with bikini babes and Fred Durst. But just because one cable network stopped going H.A.M doesn't mean that everyone else did. Spring break is still a rite of passage for millions of college students around the country, and hopefully we can help some of them figure out where to go to spring break this year a.k.a. where to party till they puke. On this list of trashy spring break spots, we collected over 25 cities that completely lose their minds once a year. Spoiler alert: a lot of them are in Florida. Make sure to vote on which spring break party spots is the trashiest, and if we forgot anything - throw it on the list bro!

<![CDATA[The Greatest TV Title Sequences of All Time]]> http://ranker.com/list/greatest-tv-title-sequences-of-all-time/ranker-tv The greatest TV title sequences of all time are those memorable opening credits scenes from many of the best TV shows of all time that stick out in our minds long after the shows cease to air. Be it the inclusion of a catchy song or a constantly evolving opening title sequence that changes from episode to episode, these are the best opening seconds in the history of television shows.

Uncoincidentally, many of the television shows with the best TV theme songs of all time are also among those with the best title sequences. Unless you've been living under a rock, there a good chance you can sing many great theme songs from these opening sequences on cue, such as those from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Cheers, and The Brady Bunch.

While classic opening title sequences for classic television shows, like for The Twilight Zone, Star Trek, Lost in Space, and The Odd Couple will always have a place among the best TV show openings, sometimes it's the quirky openings of today that stick out too. The opening sequence from Desperate Housewives sticks out in that category as does that from The Simpsons with creators of the long-running animated show giving viewers a reason to watch the credits with the details of the opening changing with each episode.

What's your favorite TV show title sequence? Vote for the ones you hold close to your heart, add others not listed or put these choices in your own order by re-ranking this list of the greatest TV titles sequences of all time below!

The actresses in their 40s on this list are all in the transition stage where roles seem to dry up for women in Hollywood.

Ranker has got you covered with a comprehensive list of the major differences between the TV show and comic book. Are you a CW drama fan that accidentally stumbled upon this super hero epic? Are you a die-hard comic book fan that took a chance on something that looked like 90210 with weapons? Are you just a fan of shirtless men wearing quivers of arrows? 
Although the producer's of Arrow have gone to great lengths to honor the source material, somethings just have to be changed. Oliver Queen has been whipping arrows at the bad guys for almost 75 years now and that's a lot of information and history to fit into an hour long drama once a week. So, if you're a fan of Arrow and looking to make the jump to the comics then hopefully this list gives you an idea what you might (and might not) find.

While Netflix does offer some great streaming TV shows, and will likely add more in coming months, several fantastic TV shows are only available via DVDs at the moment. At one point or another, some of the shows listed here were available for Netflix streaming, but for whatever reason, they were pulled. If you have a favorite TV show that you'd love to watch on Netflix streaming, and it's not listed here, by all means, add it!

Let's face it: For all the best streaming Netflix TV shows that are currently available, there are scores of others that you've got to order as DVDs. That can be really frustrating. If you want to sit and watch every single episode of 'Veronica Mars' in two days, then by GOD you should be able to do it, without having to stalk the mailman! And seriously, Netflix, what gives with 'Gilmore Girls'? You can stream every single stinking episode of 'Law & Order: SVU' but you can't give us one of the greatest cop dramas ever on television, 'The Wire,' as a streaming show?

With cult favorite TV shows like 'Freaks and Geeks,' 'The X-Files' and 'Arrested Development' included as part of Netflix's streaming content library, why not try and add more? 'Party Down' comes to mind immediately, as does 'Pushing Daisies' and 'Northern Exposure.'

Be sure to vote for your favorite shows you'd most want on Netflix streaming, add any that might be missing, and hopefully we'll all get what we want. Eventually. Also check out our best TV shows on Netflix list for even more great Netflix viewing.

With unrelatable and often ridiculous advice, she jumps from how to make a bed to the phenomenon that is vaginal steaming. She just can’t seem to get a handle on any of the meat in the middle, and her veganism isn’t even to blame for it. What's the weirdest Gwyneth Paltrow diet and lifestyle advice on Goop? There's lots of it.

None of this is to say she’s a bad person, it just would appear that Paltrow, successful Hollywood actress that she is, has a complete and utter lack of awareness about herself and the real world. What's the deal with the Goop lifestyle, you ask? Well if there was a Euler diagram to showcase the relationship between what Paltrow thinks is necessary information vs. what the rest of the world thinks is necessary information, the circles literally wouldn’t touch. One must naturally assume that 95% of this Gwyneth Paltrow website readership must only be people hate-reading – there’s simply no other explanation for who is curious about her yachting weekend advice.

Since its inception, Goop.com has provided for much better fodder and mockery than advice. It is a safe place, not for fashion, hair, cooking, and life advice, but for all of Paltrow’s humblebrags, wish lists, and misguided attempts to connect to the plebian public in the most bourgeoisie way. The possibility that this is a massive, drawn out troll by the Queen of All Things Proper cannot be ruled out.

Trolling or not, Paltrow has created enough crazy content for us to line up and judge for ourselves. What is the most insane piece of advice on Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog? Let’s enter the exclusive world of Goop and pick a winner.

<![CDATA[World War 2 Propaganda Posters, Explained]]> http://ranker.com/list/ww2-propaganda/mike-rothschild Known as "weapons on the walls," propaganda posters played a huge role in World War 2, providing morale boosting messages, instilling the need for silence and secrecy, and bringing home the importance of what each soldier and worker did. When the conflict began, most nations saw the need to engage the entire population. Rationing was introduced, industry was nationalized, and companies that made products with no relevance to the war were converted into armament plants.

WW2 posters and WW2 propaganda were vital to conveying how important it was that everyone pull together, and that any slacking, selfishness, or gossip could have disastrous consequences. There was also a need to dehumanize the enemy, making it okay for people to make weapons that killed and destroyed - because they would do the same to Americans and the Allies if they weren't stopped. These posters and signs depicted World War 2 battles, imagery, and themes as well.

The Allied embrace of total war gave the US and Britain an edge in arms production over Germany, which was counting on World War Two being a short and victorious conflict, and whose civilian population sacrificed little. When Nazi Germany finally did convert over to total war in 1943, they were already years behind - in part, thanks to the propaganda efforts of their foes.

Here is a selection of WW2 propaganda posters from the major nations in World War II, and what they were used for.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Actor / Director Teams Ever]]> http://ranker.com/list/greatest-actor-and-director-teams/hoserusc In the movie business there are great actors and great directors; when two of these tremendously talented people come together to make a film, the result is often a classic. When a great actor/director team continues to pair up and make films, the result is a legend. To add to this list, click Info View.

From Scorcese & De Niro to Burton & Depp, there's no denying that certain actor/director teams have a unsaid spark between them (the director able to coax the best performance from the actor and he in turn being able to translate a director's vision into that stellar performance). Point is: there are some truly great director/actor combos out there.

Let's get something straight: this is not a list of all the best directors of all time or the best actors and actresses ever, this is a list of the all-time best actor/director collaborations. These are movie directors who work with the same actors over and over again because of the tremendous results they get. Now bear in mind, there are times when even the top actor/director duos slip up and make a less-than-epic film (*cough*The Terminal*cough*), but on the whole, these creative teams are behind many of the best movies of all time.

If your favorite director/actor team didn't make the list, feel free to add them and let others vote on their effectiveness at delivering great performances together. And before you ask, yes, Steven Spielberg/Harrison Ford and all the other actors/directors who are linked by sequels were intentional omissions. That's not a choice to work together, it's a contract. Now go forth and make your choices for the top actor and director collaborators.

Lipstick trends change every season and can be a bit predictable. However, some Spring seasons bring new and exciting trends in lipstick colors and styles that pop up in magazines, on runways, and on celebrities. The type of lipstick you choose to wear largely depends on your skin tone, complexion, and personal style. Classic colors like red velvet and rose have made a comeback, while daring colors like orange are on the rise and have been seen on trendsetters like Lupita Nyong’o.

Before choosing the Spring lip color that works best for your style, you should be aware of your skin tone. Lighter shades or dark lipsticks can wash out pale skin or make your lips pop, depending on the color. Each color has its own set of rules on how to best wear it and look like the goddess you are.

What is your favorite shade of Spring lipstick? This list features the lip colors you’ll most likely be seeing on the most fashionable this Spring and has tips for what shades to wear with each skin tone

Vintage advertisements for cigarettes are so outrageous, so ridiculous, and so blatantly harmful that they almost seem unreal. It's almost like they're a joke that no one could have possibly taken seriously. Except they did.

It's hard to imagine a time when anyone looked at ads for cigarettes and saw anything more than a highly addictive, extremely dangerous product. But like many other items that we now know can kill us (lead in lipstick, mercury in skin cream, pep pills), during the long-ago time before the Internet (and common sense), consumers were much more likely to believe the advertisements being directed at them.

That's the genius behind all the celebrity endorsed cigarettes (Ronald Reagan for Chesterfields!) and brands using pictures of doctors and dentists to deceive customers into thinking cigarettes weren't bad for them. And of course, who can forget all the cartoon mascots (the Flinstones, Joe Camel, a Penguin) making cigarettes more appealing to kids?

These old smoking ads and vintage smoking posters make cigarettes look cool, edgy, fun – you name it. Looking at them now is outlandish because there's no way advertisers could ever get away with it today. Check out these outrageous vintage cigarette ads, and be sure to vote up the ones that are the most absurd and you could never imagine seeing these days.

Maybe they aren't as afraid of needles as we are, or maybe they just don't take the term literally. Since the dawn of time people have been ratting each other out, whether it's to get ahead at work or to get out of trouble. On this list of famous snitches we've got mob bosses, cold blooded killers, hip hop wannabes, and even a US President! After all, you don't get to the top without getting a little dirty. 

While you're reading through this list of famous informants who avoided jail time by turning in their closest pals (and accomplices) take some time for self reflection and remember that even when your friends annoy you, at least they aren't mob snitches!

It's bananas to think that some of the mafia snitches and other tattletales on this list were able to get off squeaky clean after all the heinous crimes they committed, just by naming names. If we knew all it took to get some of that sweet Witness Protection business was to ice some goodfellas, we'd have started icing gangsters a long time ago. Is that the right term? Icing?

From Ronald Reagan and Walt Disney (say whaaat?) to Linda Tripp and a whole lot of mafia guys with cool nicknames, these are the biggest snitches in history.

<![CDATA[Who Should Host the 2016 Oscars?]]> http://ranker.com/list/who-should-host-oscars-2016/ranker-film It's never too early to predict who will host the next Oscars (2016 will be here sooner that you know it, y'all!) So we are hereby kicking off our Oscars 2016 predictions poll: host edition. Hollywood’s biggest night of the year is all about glitz, glamour, and, of course, ego. But while the 2016 Academy Award nominated actors wait for their moment in the spotlight, there’s one other important player on stage: the host. As many others have proven in the past, an awards show host can make or break an event like the Academy Awards– 2016 will be no exception. With that in mind, we ask you this pressing question: who should host the next Oscar ceremony? 

We’ve kicked off our Oscars prediction list with some of our favorite suggestions. Below you’ll see everyone from past Academy Awards hosts we’d love to see again, to less obvious (but still interesting) choices for consideration. So scroll on down and tell us who you think should host the Academy Awards in 2016! Have someone else in mind that you don’t see on the list? No problem. Feel free add your own 2016 Oscars host predictions and wishes.

Let us know whether you’d prefer a host that’s guaranteed to keep the laughs coming, like Chris Rock or Ellen DeGeneres, or perhaps someone who’s sure to bring the class like Oprah or Anderson Cooper? Or maybe it's time to get a fresh face up there. Anna Kendrick, anyone? Let the voting begin!

<![CDATA[The Greatest Rock Band Logos of All Time]]> http://ranker.com/list/the-greatest-band-logos-of-all-time/rockboy Picking the best band logos of all time turned out to be quite a task. When asking people about their favorite band logos, most people went right to classic rock band logos like Aerosmith and Metallica, while ignoring great new rock logos like Tool and Foo Fighters. Additionally, NO ONE was thinking about rap or hip hop logos (which is ok because now there's a whole separate list of the best hip hop/rap logos). PLUS, everybody just went right to the best bands of all time and insisted they accounted for the best logos of all time. Wrong.

The criteria that ended up being used to create the list was this: a pervasive band logo that wasn't just around for one album. Bands like Arcade Fire and Blink-182 (don't judge, we're talking great band logos, not great catalogs of music) had some great logos associated with a particular album, but were nothing special over time. And some of the best bands had really underwhelming band logos (The Beatles, Rush, etc.).

As far ranking the top band logos, it's highly subjective and votable. The best logos are not necessarily the most iconic band logos and vice versa. If you think the order's wrong, vote up the best rock band logos and vote down the band art you don't like. If there's something missing, add the artist logos you think should have a shot at being dubbed the best band logo. The one thing to really remember with this list is NO BAD BAND LOGOS.

What is the greatest band logo of all time? What are the bands with the best logos? Vote and decide! Keep it focused on music logos as opposed to music mascots. And rock on!

<![CDATA[The Greatest Musicians Who Died Before 40]]> http://ranker.com/list/greatest-musicians-who-died-before-40/ranker-music

Some of the best musicians in history only lived for a few short decades. This list ranks those musicians whose lives were taken before they turned 40, whether intentionally or accidentally, including everyone from Bob Marley to Mozart. They may all come from different genres and backgrounds, but the loss of each of these musicians left a major emptiness in the world of music. Singers and rock stars like Amy Winehouse, Buddy Holly, and Jimi Hendrix didn’t live to 40, but they did live long enough to secure a lasting legacy in music history.

Many people think of rock stars like Kurt Cobain (of the 27 Club) when they consider musicians who died young, but the world of rap music can be just as deadly. Who can forget the feud between Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.? While no one has ever conclusively proven who killed the two stars or even that the two deaths were linked, there is no doubt that both musicians were killed far too early. These musicians were murdered in their prime, and hip hop fans still mourn them.

Other deaths have rocked the music world as well. Can any fan of hip hop or R&B every truly recover from Aaliyah’s death in 2001? She was only 22 years old when her plane crashed in the Bahamas, killing not only her but also eight others. This gifted musician died before reaching the age of 40, and the world of R&B is not the same for her loss.

On this list you’ll find musicians who died before they turned 40. The gifted performers on this list come from all genres. Many of the musicians here died in unfortunate and horrific circumstances, while others passed away more peacefully, some from natural causes. Whatever the case, they have all earned their spots on this list of the greatest musicians who died before 40.

It's really a simple question, but the answers can be... conflicting. Sure, there are practical things you can and probably should do with a $100 windfall, but it's tempting to blow it all on something super fun, too. This list includes some of the greatest suggestions for how to spend 100 bucks, so vote up what you'd do with the cash money and vote down what you wouldn't waste it on.

But really, there are so many fun things you could do with 100 dollars, too. While it's not like you've won the lottery and need to decide what to do with instant financial wealth or anything, it's still something that should be thought through.So what if you like thinking about having an extra $100 lying around... but you don't?

<![CDATA[The Best Directorial Debuts of All Time]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-directorial-debut/anncasano Citizen Kane is often cited as the greatest movie ever made, but did you know it was Orson Welles's directorial debut? That's right - he knocked it out of the park on the first try, and so have many other film directors as well. These directorial debuts also happen to be some of the best movies of all time and are feats that many veteran Hollywood directors haven't matched over their entire careers.

We could marvel at the achievements of all of the talented directors on this list. Think about the first time you tried to do anything in life. Chances are it wasn’t perfect. It probably wasn’t even anywhere near perfect. But somehow, these filmmakers nailed it during their first time in the director's chair. Some of the directors on this list didn't even go to film school before directing their first movies (Welles included)!  

This is a list of the naturals who had the best directorial debuts in the history of cinema. It spans all genres from Quentin Tarantino’s postmodern take on the gangster movie in Reservoir Dogs to Cameron Crowe’s vision of a teenage romantic comedy in Say Anything... Even Steven Soderbergh and Terrence Malick, who would both go on to make great movies throughout their careers, had two of the best first films of any Hollywood film directors.

Be sure to vote up who you think made the best directorial debut in film. Don’t see one of your favorite first films from good movie directors on this list? Add it below!

While that may be true, outside those four walls all bets are off. Whether you reside in a house or an apartment building, horrible neighbors run rampant and come in all shapes and sizes. And unfortunately, you can't run or hide from close encounters of the not-so-neighborly kind. This list of the worst kinds of neighbors includes everyone from the early morning mower to the host of every weekend's 4 a.m. block party.

You probably moved into your neighborhood or building with big dreams of happiness. You carved out a home that would serve as a sanctuary. It's your special place to relax, to unwind, to be happy... Wow. You were so naive! Because without warning, a nearby resident will rear his or her ugly head and quickly turn your happy home into a living hell. We're talking about the people so annoying or mean or inconsiderate or creepy that even Mr. Rogers would exclaim in horror, "Oh please! For the love of God, will you NOT be my neighbor?!" 

This list aims to reflect the absolute worst types of neighbors. Of course, this list may not contain every single type of offender, but these next-door types make it absolutely impossible to love thy neighbor. 

o, who are the worst people on your block? That's up to you to decide, since different things irk different people. Take a gander and upvote the people who manage to bother you the most. Go on - they'll never know... Unless they're already hacking into your wifi.

<![CDATA[The Best Board Games of All Time]]> http://ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-board-games-of-all-time The best board games ever made, ranked by aficionados and casual players (For a full list check out Ranker's List of All Board Games). What are the greatest board games ever? The classic games that have entertained families of players for decades? Or innovative new table-top role playing games pushing the boundaries between fiction and reality? This list attempts to determine, once and for all, which are the greatest and most fun board games of all time.

A board game here is defined as any game in which pieces are placed on or moved around a flat surface, such as a board. This would include classic centuries-old board games such as Go, Chess, and Checkers, along with more modern games like Settlers of Catan, or even some role-playing games involving game pieces or miniatures. What are the best board games ever? What's the best board game for two people? What's the best board game for groups?

Some games still utilize game pieces but are built more around live interaction or conversation rather than traditional "turn-based" board games. These games – such as Scattergories or Taboo – may not meet the strict definition of a board game, but nonetheless resemble board game-style play and entertainment enough to warrant inclusion.

This list was determined by allowing users to make lists of suggestions for the greatest board games ever, and then holding an open vote on which games were actually the best of all time. Whether you are a hardcore board game geek or just a casual player, your votes count here. If you don't see your favorite board games on the list, add your own list and suggest them. And don't forget to vote on the best games on the list already to ensure they rise to the top! If your mind needs some board game refreshment check out the complete list of board games.

Short of maybe Star Wars it's one of the most definitive films of all time. The first film not only held the record as the highest grossing film of all time but did so well that it nearly quadrupled interest in paleontology and paleontologists. You know and love this franchise, but what behind the scenes facts and interesting Jurassic Park trivia is still out there to learn? Read on to find out!

The first film (as is usually the case) was certainly the best, but despite being less critically acclaimed, Spielberg's sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park is nothing to scoff at either. It reinvigorated that insane passion for dinosaurs, advanced CG/animatronic hybrids and further instilled a sense of wonder in an entire generation, getting them thinking about just what it would be like if dinosaurs were still around today. The third film is basically an amusement park ride on film, (which in some ways really fits the tone and the concept of these blockbuster Hollywood movies) for better or worse. 

To celebrate one of the greatest film franchises of all time, we've decided to look back and unearth some trivia you may not know from all Jurassic Park movies. Vote up the most interesting Jurassic Park facts below!

<![CDATA[TV Shows That Should Be Canceled]]> http://ranker.com/crowdranked-list/shows-that-should-be-canceled The worst TV shows on the air, that deserve cancellation after this current season. Though reality TV is often singled out as the trashiest current options on television, numerous shows from a variety of genres have made the cut on this collection of failed entertainment products. Competition to get on the television remains intense, but has lessened over the years, as extensive cable packages and streaming options have exploded the number of new TV series being produced. Of course, this opened up opportunities for stations like AMC and FX to experiment with exciting new programming, but also allows for innumerable bad knock-offs, stupid reality competitions and painfully unfunny comedies.

Basic cable channels, particularly MTV and Bravo, seem to be singled out on the list a bit, with entries like "Jersey Shore," "The Pauly D Project," "16 and Pregnant" and the "Real Housewives..." series taking up a number of the top spots. The list also includes a number of once-beloved shows that are seen as "past their prime" or overdue for cancellation, such as NBC's venerable mockumentary-sitcom "The Office," the Charlie Sheen-less "Two and a Half Men" and Showtime's pot dramedy "Weeds."

The best clothes, the best bedding, the best toys, the top quality stuff. But for a certain segment of the population, top quality has a top that's over the top. That's where these crazy expensive baby products and luxury baby items come in.

Diamond pacifier? Check! A bed that costs as much as an SUV? Oh yeah. A tailored baby suit that your little dude will probably wear once and spit up on? Of course. All of these are insanely expensive, not all that useful, and some are even dangerous (seriously, no matter how nice crib bumpers are, never use them!) or pointless, but fancy babies need fancy things, so you better pony up (maybe for a golden pony?).

If you want only the finest and latest cool stuff for babies and money isn't even one bit of an issue, then the overpriced baby products on this list are just what you're looking for. They're mostly all available for sale, and the ones that aren't...well, they are. You just have to know who to ask.

List of the best restaurant chains for hangovers. When you’re having an amazing, fun night with your best friends, you likely don’t think of the next morning.
