        1. If this comment gets 7 nested replies, I’m going to rescind my original whinge about boring recursion.

  1. Yo dawg, I heard you like top ten lists, so I put ten top ten lists in your top ten list so you can read top ten lists while you read top ten lists!

  2. I’m glad this is getting the recognition it deserves. It was #3 on my top ten top ten top ten top ten lists list.

  3. So is this 1000 different items, or is it 1111 items because each of the lists (including this top one) is an item itself?

    Also interesting to note (well, to me, anyway) that the “Top ten top ten top ten lists” can’t contain itself, because it isn’t a “top ten top ten list,” although if it had just billed itself as the “top ten lists” then it could, being a list. Yes?
