10.) No. 8 — Not much to say about this number. It almost didn’t make the list.
9.) No. 5 — In the high-flying high-fiving ’80s, no number was ore celebrated or later fell further. Don’t expect a comeback unless fist-bumps are found to cause carpal tunnel.
8.) No. 4 — Not gold, silver or bronze. Best you can say: half as boring
7.) No. 2 — As they told me at my GED reunion, if you’re not first, then you’re not even valedictorian to a bunch of idiots.
6.) No. 9 — Match it with a “6” and watch the pay-per-view fireworks fly. But as a solo act... harder to stomach than a Kirstie Alley swimsuit calendar.
5.) No. 6 — The only number with a pot belly, but thanks to fun “Joy of Six” puns, that extra heft actually seems cute.
4.) No. 7 — The luckiest number? My brain says bull—, but my heart would give an aorta for this guy’s press agent.
3.) No. 10 — There’s a lot to say for the primacy effect. Everyone remembers the first and last… except maybe from this list.
2.) No. 3 — I’ve always had a soft spot for prime numbers, and not even a Mormon (or “especially not” a Mormon?) would hate on the eponym for the threesome.
1.) No. 1 — Okay, I’m going a bit on reputation here. It tops everyone’s list, but as they say, 1.3 billion in a No. 2 country like China couldn’t be wrong.
