It’s crazy to think that 2014 is almost over. It seems like just yesterday we were doing this for 2013. So in following our tradition, we’ve figured out just what you crazy Beavers were viewing on the site this year. Out of the over 1600 posts we did this year, we pulled the page stats, server logs, social mentions, all of it played a part in getting this list. And the results are actually a bit surprising.
So here you go, Strange Beaver’s top 14 posts from 2014
#14 – You Park Like A Prick #4
The age old issue that can make even the calmest person’s blood boil. Self entitled d-bags who can’t seem to master the not so complicated task of parking.

#9 – How An Idiot Shovels Snow
It’s hard to tell if the Walmart employee in this video is completely incompetent, or has simply just given up on his job and decided to go outside and dick around in the snow

#6 – Tumblr Tuesday 4-8
Tumblr didn’t really get any love on last year’s top list but the posts have more than made up for it this year. With 3 posts hitting the top spots in 2014, it looks like Tumblr has finally knocked Facebook Fails off it’s thrown as most popular weekly post.

#5 – A More Modest Version Of The Leaked Celeb Photos
One of the big news stories of 2014 was the leaking of TONS of celebrity photos, most of them in various states of undress. Since the whole thing was so messed up and we felt bad for these women having their personal lives completely exposed like that, we decided to help the celebs by altering their photos a bit and making them less racy

#4 – Tumblr Tuesday 6-17
The number 3 and 4 spots have been neck and neck for the past 2 weeks. They are the two most popular Tumblr posts from the year and as of this morning the positions have flipped. This one was #3 yesterday and currently there’s only about 400 page views separating the two so it could swing back later today.

#2 – Star Wars Girls Make The World A Better Place
As a shocker to us, the annual Star Wars Girls post for May the Fourth hit the 2nd place spot this year, just like the 2013 Star Wars Girls post did on last year’s list. It’s no surprise though, Star Wars is undeniably awesome and girls that love Star Wars are some of the best geek girls on the planet

Alright, and here’s what we’ve been waiting for. This post was responsible for our servers crashing due to all the page views it generated in such a short amount of time. It was published, and within a few hours it was getting nailed by tons of fans and even got picked up and syndicated with some other sites like HuffPo and Buzzfeed. So here it is, the most popular post on StrangeBeaver.com in 2014!
