Did you ever wonder if there was a Michael Jordan of smooth jazz? How about Michael Jordan of baby parades? Irish Hurling? Well wonder no more because The Wall Street Journal has compiled over 1500 uses of the phrase "The Michael Jordan of..."
The phrase has been used to describe a vast and hilarious array of jobs, and the Journal even noted 223 instances of a new permutation, "the LeBron James of.." for those who believe James has surpassed Jordan.
With the multitude of examples compiled, this is a concept that takes a very, very long time to get old, so start your weekend early and head over to what is surely the Michael Jordan of internet time wasters.
