First–hey, thanks: Year-over-year website traffic jumped a whopping 55.9 percent in 2023!

I have divided my annual list of the year’s most viral stories into two categories–the most popular newish stories, written recently and posted for the first time (those stories are here), and the most popular year-in-and-year out classic stories that are always popular on the site.

Here goes with the classics:
