If you find yourself in the mood to peruse figuratively important lists about American pop culture, give a little attention to the above titled book. Lists included in the book are plentiful and all over the lot; here's a fun few:

  • 10 American TV Series with Satisfying Endings
  • 100 Killer Songs Clocking in at Two Minutes or Less

Just so you know what to expect in the way of humor, Inventory is brought to you by the A.V. Club, the arts and entertainment section of the popular satirical weekly, The Onion. Couple 'o Onion titles also available here.
