As promised, I'm wrapping up best of 2008 by the end of January 2009. So without further ado...let's wrap this bitch up.
Most Controversial Blog Regular: Stavvy.
When I reported that our resident entitled princess ran a red light, and was busted, here; it was nothing compared to the firestorm that erupted when I reported on the cost of that ticket here! It was an ugly, 33 comment plus free-for-all that wasn't topped until this year when Stavvy...wait, we'll save that for best of 2009.
Honorable Mention: Mik
collect their tea-cups and...
The The "Oh, he's NOT gay? But I was so certain!" Award: Nemo and D3 (TIE!)
Nemo rocks a purple tank-top and white Capri pants like no other (people often reference to this hetero-Italian as “The nice gay German guy”) while D3’s cherry “Hey, does that dude have on lipstick?” red lips insure that Perv will continue to refer to him as, “Gay-Danny”.
Honorable Mention: Emo-Elf (the most girlish certainly, but disqualified due to ugly pony-tail that was displayed for most of year)
The Beat to Death in 2008: HnH's Skull-n-Guitar Shirt
I kid you not, these were ALL taken on different dates and times. I probably saw HnH a grand total of 12 occasions in 2008 and, until I asked him to stop wearing it, he was ALWAYS IN THIS BLASTED SHIRT! N.H.F. had a "sit-down" with him, and he's promised not to burden us with it again.
Honorable mention: Rock Band
Most Welcome Trend: The Return of the Glory Hole
Honorable Mention: The Skinny Fat Girl
Our person of the year is also this year's biggest tool!
Person of the Year: N.H.F.
Handing out our person of the year was tough and the competition stiff. Should I award Mik for finally dating someone that met with my approval? Or Perv for being a surrogate father and white chauffer? What about O.J. for launching a business in this tough economy or Beefy-Jon simply for being Beefy-Jon? Instead, I decided to award the Person of The Year to (please get a barf bucket for Marja for this as she thinks that the winner and I are in constant mutual ass kiss mode) the person that stepped up and took over Editor in Chief duties of this blog: N.H.F. Not only that, N.H.F. saw to it that my burdens were lessened this year by intercepting those that set out to encumber me with trivial matters when it came to making plans. Furthermore, he provided comfort in these troubling times by dropping nuggets of wisdom like, “The recession can be a good thing; it will weed out the weak as only the strong survive!” and “We’ve seen how everyone gets along during the good times; lets see how things shake out when times get tough!” He also taught me fun new terms like “Donkey Punch” and “Popcorn Surprise” Come get your award N.H.F.!
Honorable Mention: Mik, Perv, OJ, Beefy-Jon, You
Biggest Tool: N.H.F.
While you’re here, make sure you pick up your award for Biggest Tool! I was all set to hand it to Tool Time Tim when I saw that pic of you playing Rock Band. What a tool!
Honorable Mention: Tool Time Tim, Emo-Elf, Dave The Strange (also awarded, “That was one mean Muthaf****a!”)
That's all folks! See you Monday. While you're waiting here are some
