We know what you're thinking, we thought the same thing ourselves: Of the 30,000 or so articles Complex published this year, how is it possible to narrow it down to the 112 best? Well, it's like the moms used to say: "Yeah, I love all of y'all, but some of you fuckers are prettier than the others."

It's true, the vee-en-tay doe-say was a big year for us, the biggest in fact. Men lie, women lie, but numbers don't: The Internets love us. And we love y'all, too. Yeah, we slip on occasion (wait, so the Red Sox didn't make the playoffs?), but y'all keep coming back, and we thank you for that. Here's hoping you and yours have a wonderful 2013. We know we will. Now, cue the soundtrack.
