Eight momentous achievements to celebrate on this, the fourth anniversary of The Ocho:

8. Single-handedly introduced the numbered-list format to journalism.

7. Coincidentally, said format has also hastened the death of journalism.

6. Inspired the Pat’s Barbecue eight-meat signature sandwich, “The Ocho Choke-O.”

5. Risen to No. 3 in City Weekly’s fabricated-facts columns, behind Free Will Astrology and Private Eye.

4. Residuals have almost paid off sweet 2003 Hyundai Elantra. Almost.

3. Inspired the Burt’s Tiki Lounge eight-liquor signature drink, “The Ocho Croak-O.”

2. Sold television rights to The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien ... in January.

1. Successfully held this space for an adult-novelty shop ad since 2006.
