Best of the Dicketies

Because, you know, the Kaiser stole the zero.

Best of lists are designed to piss off everyone that didn't write them. That's why they crack me up. Also, fair warning, I hate it when people say the decade is ending when there's still a year left in it. That said: these are my favorite albums of the years that start with "2-0-0"
