We often say it’s been a crazy year, but this time: We have proof. For 12 months now, Salon has turned a spotlight on the nutty, the certifiable, the gobsmackingly cockeyed in news and culture with our “This Week in Crazy” feature, which came to you every Saturday thanks to the superb duo of Alex Pareene and Mary Elizabeth Williams. The series began in 2009 with a year-end story crowning Glenn Beck the king of cracked. Now, as we wind down a year that has included one midterm election, several heated debates over gay civil rights and a million tears shed on cable news, we count down the people who truly hit out of the park. People, we present your Class of Crazy 2010. – Sarah Hepola

    Sonic's Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog

    Sonic calls this a "gourmet twist" on a classic. I am not so, so fancy, but I know that sprinkling bacon and cheddar cheese onto a tube of pork is not gourmet, even if you have made a bun out of something that is theoretically French.

    7 ways Americans have defiled the hot dog

    Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Bites Pizza

    Pizza Hut basically just glued pigs-in-blankets to the crust of its normal pizza. This actually sounds good, and I blame America for brainwashing me into feeling that.
