33 Songs We Didn’t Expect To Tap This Year

It’s been another crazy year, and we have receipts. There were plenty of unusual animal stories, including a llama on the loose in Fairfax (2022’s foiled attempt to eclipse the runaway zebras of 2021?), a skinny dog ​​convention at the beach, and this time a chicken ruffled a bunch of feathers at the Pentagon. There were also some bizarre real estate stories: the time the pirate ship houseboat went up for sale and then again when it was bought and turned into an Airbnb – although honestly this series had nothing on the house Fairfax of $800,000 who was accompanying one person. living in the basement. There was even a story that featured elements of real estate and animals – a $4 million mansion in Great Falls that hosted an open house with alpacas. And let’s not forget: James Madison’s flute-playing Lizzo, fake “friendly” Feds, a surprising celebrity cat, a penis playpen, elephant drama, and more. Join us on this strange walk down memory lane, huh?
