Ten most popular ordinal numbers

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5
  6. 6
  7. 7
  8. 8
  9. 9
  10. 10

And that was an astoundingly bad joke. For more of the same sort, except illustrated, why not visit my daily growing jar of doodles, Lemmata?

(And the tragedy of this list is that 1, 2, 3 and so on aren’t ordinal numbers in the mathematical sense, or in the linguistic sense: the first are monsters, the second are third, fourth and so on. Just that plain “arithmetic” meaning meant here. Also, is it funny or just weird that I feel compelled to add notes like this?)
