Time for the Funnies

Remember when I ranked the funniest bloggers that I read (here)?

Or, do you remember when I passed out my custom made funny award to a select few very funny peeps (or here)?

Well, I figured it had been long enough since I updated my Funnies list, or handed out my funny award, and I should do it again.

Only one problem….

When I was going back through my reader cleaning out the cobwebs (“cobwebs” being code for slackers who rarely post or lost their funniness)….(and I totally just ruined the code, DANG IT!), I realized that I had been so caught up with posting, reading my loyal followers, and making awesome comments, that it had been awhile since I had checked out anyone new.

Maybe there are supremely funny people out there who I am missing.

I began to have a mild panic attack thinking I might be overlooking some good stuff. But since it was only a mild attack, it passed quickly. Or maybe it was a fart.

The point is…

I am redoing the Funny Blogger Recommendation list and need your help.
Actually, I need your help for two reasons.

First, I need you to nominate/refer/suggest someone that you read and think is hilarious and would like me to checkout for consideration.

Second, since my site traffic has dropped, I need you to spread the word to your friends so I can consider as many people as possible before I make my decision.

After I have checked out all the bloggers that are recommended to me, I will post a list of all the nominees, with hyperlinks.

Then I will rank the top ten funniest that I read, also with links.

Plus, the top 10 will each receive a newly crafted custom made FunnyPages Award to display proudly.

There may even be an additional prize or prizes.

I am still working out the details (i.e.. Can Gary Coleman be shipped overnight UPS? Maybe each of the 10 would get to spend the day showing him off in their hometown, like the Stanley Cup trophy? Or, what about sending each winner a lifetime supply of used toilet paper?)

The best part? We all get to check out some funny stuff that we might not already read.
And YES, Mooooog35, you can nominate yourself. It’s completely open.

So send in those nominations, either in the comments or by email.

Let the laughs begin!

P.S. You might ask what qualifies me to judge the funniest bloggers, besides the fact that it’s my contest.
Well, it’s because I am the funny expert!
It’s even in the name of this blog, DUH!
Just look up!

Well... I am at work so I can't really link you to any right now.. but i pretty much have the best funny taste ever, (i read you don't i) so you can pretty much just click on any of the links i have on the side of my page that you don't already read, and you'll find something. I'm excited for you to do this though, because I am also excited to find some new shizzle.

Gary Coleman, like the REAL Gary Coleman? Or is "Gary Coleman" is a euphemism for something else I don't even want to think about.

Hillbilly Duhn said...

I nominate myself. Oh, wait, I'm not new. Damn it. And sometimes I loose my funny. OH NO does that mean I will be dropped from my list even though today I wrote about turtle heads and buttholes???? I hope not.

I haven't been bloggy nation backpacking in awhile, been in a shlump, maybe I'll do that tomorrow it'll give me something to do. :)

And I will report back if I find anything.

Wow. It's like you KNOW me.

Okay, fine.

If I nominate FIVE funny blogs will you NOT send me Gary Coleman? :)

I'm trying to think of some you might not know as you know all my other fave funny people.

How about Buffy at Hip Hop Hippie, she normally makes me giggle quite a bit with her Fairfax Jesus stories and other awesomeness. Also Dan at Vacant Mind is a witty guy. And Tony Spunk normally is an entertaining geezer.

Like I said, everyone else on my list, you already know!

McGriddle Pants said...

Well of course I nominate myself! I ooze awesomeness from every pore. Fo Shizzle. I also nominate:
aladdinsane @ She Don't Make False Claims
Dr. Zaius @ Zaius Nation
Jon Brown @ 1000 Tiny Things I Hate
and
Annabelle @I'll Tell You Anyway

Hmm...well, I'm partial to the trainwreck that I wrote today. Not so much because I think that I'm all that funny, but more that the subject matter was so messed up that it couldn't help but seem comical.

Trust me. It's about vajazzling.

Other than that, you should look at:

I don’t know any funny people. I’m all about religion, saving souls, Jesus Christ, Wine, Beer, Jack Daniels, Sex, Butt Fucking and Blow Jobs. Guess I don’t make the list again. Oh! Wait! Do you have a Shit List…I’m always on that one.

Momma Fargo said...

Good luck in your quest, grasshopper.

I will anxiously await the results so I can read new funnies. Afterall, humor is the best.

adrienzgirl said...

Does that mean you are kicking those of us on the funny list off? Cause I just posted your button, and you know....I'd hate to have to unpost it. :D

You should check out BDC. He is pretty funny when he posts.
