Dec 21, 2007

If, like us, you've found the past 12 months have streaked by like a greased missile, leaving you not a quiet moment to take stock of what's actually happened, then we have the answer. Or at least, we have the answer for you if the question on your lips was "what were the biggest OhMyGod news stories of 2007?".

So on the following pages you'll find this year's most OMFG moments. The announcements that sent us crosseyed with excitement, the scandals that boggled our poor brains, and the almost unbelievable events that created a tsunami of headlines.

Of course, if the question you're really dying to ask is "Which publisher won 2007?", then we've got the answer to that too. Though, if your query is more along the lines of "What the hell do I get my mother for Christmas, she has everything and won't ever tell me what she wants..." then, sorry, but we've got nothing. Anyway. On with the OMFG News of the Year, 2007!
