Here's Fortune magazine's 101 dumb business moments from 2007.

I particularly enjoyed No 18 - the RSPB's web site censoring use of the word 'cock' but not 'tit'.

One of the most explosively laugh out loud lines amongst many in Green Wing - believe me, it's all in the context, you need to see it - is Boyce's line to Statham "You're starting to sound like a tit now!"

That list seems to be a handy collection of raw source material, on the basis of which it might be possible for a writer with some talent to create a witty and interesting (or at least moderately readable) piece.

Which, it being the festive season, no-one would read there being too many other distractions in the form of endless end of year lists.

91 is pretty outrageous. You have to wonder what they were thinking.

Suppose it makes a change from those '100 Richest' lists. A fully-illustatrated guide to those who'll be wiping their arses with 20-quid-notes while you prostrate yourself before your bank manager in tears, promising to sell your wife and kids to pay off that loan.

85 - what the... or not. I mean why?
Were they afraid that the plane might get bonked off its flight path?
