The 2007 Whoorlies
Welcome to the inaugural ceremony of the soon-to-be-coveted Whoorlie awards. You all look absolutely ravishing. Please take your seats.
Over the past several years, we’ve seen a plethora of blog-based awards. The Weblog Awards, The BOB Awards, The Bloggies, The Perfect Post Awards and the highly sought-after “Look At Me. I’m So Important That I Won A Blog Award” Blog Awards are just the tip of the iceberg. It seems almost every blog I frequent dons some sort of colorful button screaming “I’m better than you, turdbag. Bite me.”
Well, what about the other special and extremely gifted writers* out there? Are these people* not worthy of such awards? Maybe these people* are holding back, afraid that their* sheer brilliance and talent might alienate readers around the globe…their* words acting as a mask, YES, A MASK! A mask that hides the pure poetic genius festering inside their* souls! Have you considered that? HUH, Darren?! HUH?!
To that, I say TralalalaLAH! I, err I mean we, We LAUGH at your snubbery! We don’t need your precious awards!
Enter Whoorlies, stage right!
To qualify for a Whoorlie, you must have NO previous blog awards in your repertoire. And of course, you must be a genius and all that stuff I wrote up there.
On with the show!
If I Had A 100 Things List, It Would Be Eerily Similar – Metalia. Seriously, avocado? Grass green? Football? Lip gloss? Good speller? The nose thing? I could go on forever.
Best Public Service Announcement – No Pasa Nada. She says NO, sucka! But are you saying no to the Whoorlie?
Best Photo Of Sleeping Child – Hola, Isabel. Only one of the many reasons I read Isabel, but C’MON, that photo is HILARIOUS.
Congratulations to the 2007 winners. You may now adorn your sidebars with this beauty.
Please contain your excitement. PLEASE CONTAIN YOUR EXCITEMENT! Let’s act like adults, mmmkay?
I now abruptly conclude the First Annual Whoorlie Awards. My brain has offically melted from all of the linkage.
Coming soon! The Average Post Awards!
*ahem…ahem…AHEM, YOU FOOLS!
