As 2010 comes to a close, we find ourselves feeling rather nostalgic — and also somewhat lethargic. So we thought it’d be a fine time to take a look back on the year in snark and see which stories made the most resounding thuds.

We tallied up our pageviews from January through now (yes, all 974 gajillion of them) and have officially identified the most viewed stories on eSarcasm in 2010. The winners’ circle is an eclectic mix of tech silliness, ta-ta shapeliness, and taco tastiness.* There are even a couple of old favorites that never seem to fall out of favor.

So sharpen your cuticles and start your drumrolls: We give you eSarcasm’s top 10 of 2010.

* Tacos must be provided by reader, but are highly recommended for maximum viewing enjoyment.
