2010 Funniest Bloggers Award!

*puts on rare serious face*

Okay, let me start by saying….

THIS WAS WAY FREAKING HARDER THAN I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE!!!

Geez people!

40 some nominations?!?!?!

*note to self: Revise format for next year. No repeat winners. Limit nominations. Get xanax prescription*

I actually checked out each blog.

ALL 40+!!!

You know how hard it was not to skim?!?!

But I made myself read at least 3 or 4 randomly selected posts from each blogger.

I didn’t even bother leaving comments. Between visiting the blogs at home, and checking them in Google reader during free time at work, I was wiped out. It took the better part of a week.

Not only that, but they were ALL really good. I expected at least a few duds, or friend of a friend type nominations. NADA!

I finally had to develop a rating system. I scored each one (based on various things: whether I laughed out loud, ease of reading & page loading, visual appeal, content, etc).

Then, I divided them up by ratings, and rechecked them one last time, just to make sure no one slipped through the cracks.

Yes, I probably made this way harder than it needed to be. (TWSS)

I can’t tell you how difficult it was to keep to the self-imposed 10 winner limit, too.

So, without further ado……..I give you…….

*drumroll*

Well hot damn. Nobody I nominated won shit.

That's fine. This mishap is now stored in the memory bank.

I don't hold grudges either.

Coffeypot said...

Dude! Three or four from forty blogs? That's a hundred twenty to a hundred sixty EXTRA reads. Seriously, you need to get a life.

ScoMan said...

Awesome. I won.

I'm going to write a super short blog post as a special thank you.

One day.

Maybe.

But once I get started, I just keep going.

Kind of like with this comment.

I could have left it at "one day" and then never did it, but I just keep rambling.

The point is, thank you for recognizing my awesomneess.

Thanks for doing this, Ed. You're a mensch! And thanks to whoever nominated me. And sorry I let you down. I'll try to be funnier.

Sarah P said...

I didn't even know this was happening.

Otherwise, I would have nominated a bunch of frigging people. Next year, though. Next year!

Thanks, Ed. Thanks to all of you nice people who nominated me!

I'm going to go draw something nice now. Not a penis or a uterus. But something nice.

Also, Ed? Seriously, best award design ever. I will proudly display the Golden Peen.

The Blue Zoo said...

Cool beans. Will check them out for sure!

Hopefully those people are actually funny and didnt just win through offering you sexual favors....Just sayin. LOL

otherworldlyone said...

Why the hell didn't I nominate myself like some of those other people with enormous egos?? Sigh. Back to the drawing board.

Good choices, Ed. I'll be checking out the few I don't know.

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

Thanks, Ed! I agree, the golden peen is truly glorious.

And where the frak is kurt on this list? That's a travesty.

Daffy said...

Yeah Winners!

Remind me again who nominated YOU as the king of funny? Oh, yourself?! That explains a lot.

SurferWife said...

Just realized Scoman was on the list. I didn't recognize his blog url.

Well good. At least you did something right, Ed.

I haven't won anything since "Everyone Gets a Trophy Day" in fifth grade, so this is quite exciting.

The Queen said...

Those that didn't win.. party at my house... those that won.. fuck yourself...

No, I'm not a sore loser.. but damn.. I shaved my legs.. had my hair done.. bought a dress for the red carpet.. and then I didn't win..

I'm not angry.. noooooo. not me..

Brittany said...

This is pretty much the best surprise EVER!

I am printing that badge out AS WE SPEAK and sending it to my student loan people, because CLEARLY, THIS should qualify as payment in full.

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jenny DB said...

The Office Scribe said...

I don't believe in nominating people.

I like them to win awards the way scouts do - by setting shit on fire and learning to tie knots.

The Queen said...

My dearest Ed..

Since your tight ass only gave out 10 awards.. and I didn't get one... well.. I felt bad...You thinking I'm not funny enough and all... You.. the king of funny.. doesn't think I'm the funniest thing EVAH!

So... I left a little award for you at the castle....

Love the Queen..

Pat said...

Congratulations to the winners! You know what they say - it was an honor to be nominated! Wait - I nominated myself! Never mind then.

Moooooog35 said...

Thank you, my friend.

I told myself I wasn't going to cry.

And I didn't.

It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken.

I forgot where I was going with this.

THANKS, ED!!!
