Waste the remainder of your workweek with Who Is The Most Famous?

It’s Friday afternoon, which means we’re all just running out the clock until it’s time to go home, right? Well, here’s a neat little time-waster that will help usher in the weekend and also cause you extreme frustration with yourself/exasperation with others: Who Is The Most Famous, a simple web-based game that presents you with a first name and prompts you for the most famous person you can think of with that name. You get points and are ranked Family Feud-style, based on how many other players also picked that name. It’s pretty simple, provided your mind is predisposed to pop-culture names. (Samuel L. Jackson is WAY more famous than Samuel Adams, right?) It’s also a great way to highlight both your own deteriorating mental faculties (why can’t I think of any celebrities named Joshua??) and the relative stupidity of others. (Billie Jean is more famous than Billie Holiday? That is not even a real person, you jerks!) Give it a try, and consider these last two unproductive hours of your workweek on me!
