Hot (or, uh, lukewarm) on the heels of the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Internet meme known as Stuff White People Like, two Colorado-based scamps came up with…”Stuff Journalists Like.”

Among said stuff:

#3 free food
#7 election day
#20 nut grafs
#21 All the President’s Men
#22 interns
#38 NPR
#44 Barack Obama
#61 cursing
#63 procrastinating
#69 dating other journalists
#85 abbrvtns
#666 layoffs

Oh, and—the only thing written in bold text in the stuff-journalists-like list—#10: drinking.
