R&P : favourite, second favourite, fifth favourite band / artist / song...?

Okay R&P, can someone *PLEASE* explain to me what is with this sudden outbreak of questions asking people to answer with their ‘second favourite’ or ‘third favourite’ or ‘fifth favourite’? Why do people believe that favourites are ‘singular’? That everything can be ‘sectioned’ into 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc?

Why do people believe that favourites are ‘singular’? That everything can be ‘sectioned’ into 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc?

And just how are those of us with *equal* favourites supposed to answer such questions?

Yes folks, it annoys me. I refuse to choose between my equal favourites, but then feel very left-out about answering these often fun-looking questions.
I really felt the need to have a rant about it!

Actually, some of us do find the idea of 'first favourite'-'second favourite'-'third favourite' etc, to be rather childish, as it is just like the 'best friend'-'second best friend'-fifth best friend' mentallity of primary school...

Also, I must say that as The Madness Within was not directing their comment at you, it is your response to that comment which comes across as being rude.
