20% Award Speech

Let me get up on my soap box, so I can expose these rampant blogger awards.

These awards are out of control! They are mostly shameless ploys for reciprocal linking, as well as modern versions of those evil chain letters of yore. And really, lets face it, they are popularity contests, so you send them to all your friends, and you can all win awards. It's like high school all over again, and I for one refuse to partake in the festi. . .

Huh. . .what was that. . .?

I won an award???

Magnificent! Sue from Sue's Daily Photos has awarded me with the coveted "You Make Me Smile" award, the blogger equivalent of the "Palme d'Or". Clearly my brilliant writing, charming demeanor and acidic wit has moved Sue to bestow this singular honor on me, setting me head and shoulders above all othe.....

What? She awarded more than one winner? No! After reading mine?

Well. . . that's OK. The blogosphere is a big place, and I am humbled to be chosen for this award, and will place my 20% of it in my ether awards cabinet, to sit next to my Dating Tales award.

My self and my co-winners will now head off to fight boring content and sad clowns, much like the Justice league, until the day comes where we must pass on this heavy mantle to the next generation of bloggers.

*Reads fine print*

Now? I have to award FIVE more now?

Well, I really smile at:

  1. Someday Satori, great writer and shutterbug.

  2. The Laidback Buddhist Joanne doesn't do knee slapping hilarity, but is a wonderful and introspective writer.

  3. Oh the Joys, my mommy blog fix. An advocate against giftbags. Through her, I can experience the joys of parenting, from a safe distance.

  4. ...and the pursuit of happiness. Sunshine is hardcore, straight out of. . .Iowa.

  5. Predator Press. Lobo and I must have gone to the same humor finishing school.

*kisses both cheeks of each*

There is so many I didn't get to mention that I read every day, I only hope another award shows up soon so I can honor them as well.

Thank you Sue.


Sunshine said..., I will be having a tattoo contest and will fix the voting so I win. Evil cackle here.

Thanks! You're the cat's ass, but you knew that.

Are those "Finishing School Loan Administrators" still calling you? I always write 'deceased' on the mail, and leave it in the mailbox.

--And they just offered me a credit card!

Thanks SA!
