It’s almost Thanksgiving so it’s time to give thanks. 2012 has been a heck of a year and that’s due in large part to the many sexy, funny and entertaining women of the world. Here are 50 ladies we’d like to thank for everything that they did this year. Hopefully we didn’t leave anyone out, but if we did, well, there’s always next year.
