I put it to you the reader that there is no more defining moment in human artistic achievement than the scene of the Andy Griffith Show, when Barney buys the car, and Gomer, Opie, Aunt Bea and Andy have to push the car back. None. Here's how the rank goes:

1. Andy Griffith, everybody pushes Barney's car.
2. The Ceiling of the Sistine Chapel
3. Handel's Messiah
4. William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury
5. the Mona Lisa
6. Hanson's MmmBop
7. Michelangelo's David
8. Cap'n Crunch
9. Shakespeare's Julius Caesar
10. The art on the can of Lysol "Spring Waterfall" scent.

But that Andy Griffith thing really blows them all out of the water.
