Since the editors of Time were not introduced to the nana ninja-like moves of Ginger Littleton before press time, they named one of Facebook’s founding fathers Mark Zuckerberg as their Person of the Year. Yes, by “year” they mean 2010 and not 2007. Mark beat out The Tea Party, Julian Assange, Hamid Karzai, the Chilean miners and Antoine Dodson (I made that up) for BRINGING THE WORLD TOGETHER and for making me feel uncomfortable every time one of my blood relatives pokes me.
Over at Time, some commenters aren’t happy about this shit. They believe the title should’ve went to the real-life Dr. Claw Julian Assange because he can bring down entire governments with just one keystroke. But you know, it’s not that serious. It’s JUST Time’s Person of the Year. It’s not an important title like Best Dressed 11th Grader (I was sooo close…not really) or Barbizon’s Student of the Season.
And hopefully for Mark, Time’s Person of the Year prize package includes a giant tube of LIP CHAP!
