It’s time to unleash the listing monster: Rankmanstein? No, it’s RankmanSTEEN. God bless you, Gene Wilder. Rankman has changed addresses to TMG but other than that it’s the same tub of language large. Each season we lay down the ground rules. These rankings are for entertainment purposes only. Also: No biting, gouging, expectorating, exfoliating, or loitering around the restroom down near “first four out.” There are also no operators standing by, no lifeguards on duty and no time for sergeants.
