Seven Wonders My Ass

As you may have heard, some jerks recently composed a list of the 7 new wonders of the world. Here they are: the Great Wall of China, the Colosseum, the Chichen Itza pyramid, some statue in Brazil, Machu Pichu, and the ancient city of Petra. That's right, an entire city made the list.

These things are all OLD. They had their shot at the original list of 7 wonders of the ancient world, and they muffed it. We need a real 7 wonders list for the modern world. I will accept no list that doesn't begin, and perhaps end, with this.

That's 10,660 beer cans. Just try to tell me it doesn't bring a tear to your eye. Other wonders on my list would be the Daytona International Speedway, the Las Vegas Strip, and the water tower in South Carolina off I-85 that's supposed to look like a peach but mostly looks like a gigantic ass.

Okay, so I can't think of seven, and all but one of mine are in the states. Lemme see you do better.

The 10,000 beer cans certainly piques my interest and qualifies, according to the esteemed judges over at Around the Keg, as a Wonder to be sure.

I think Big Butter Jesus ought to count on your list.

And let's not forget this gem in downtown East Lansing. A Habitrail for your cars!!

Damn, that big butter Jesus is something. Now we just need some big Moses toast.

Are you allowed to poop wherever you want in the human-sized habitrail? That would be pretty convenient.

Not technically, though before and after MSU Football tailgates, pooping is the least of what could go on in there.

Here are a couple they've over looked:

Sorry, I don't know how to do those links things.
