Meta-Post: Awards

Per a great suggestion from Michael in yesterday's comments, let's look back fondly at Mallard's 2007 and have the first annual {still to be named} Awards!

Post suggestions for good award categories in the comments! Or a suggestion for a good name for the awards.

best oversimplification would be a good category.

Named After Ham said...

Most Phallic Facial Feature?

devin said...

"Best blaming a democrat for something that Bush or other prominent Republican have flagrantly done the past seven years."

"Best stretching of one idea into a week's worth of content"

I'm also going to award myself "worst portmanteau" by suggesting they be called the "Mawards"

We could call the awards the "Golden Ellipses," since he loves to overuse those so much.

Rebochan said...

Award name:
The Boozies

Categories:
Most Confusing Strip
Worst Pop Culture Reference

Kaitlyn said...

Most Confusing, Too Much Booze - those just mean Most WTF.

So that category should be named after the Angry Sun and the sun could be used somehow.

I think it's fun to make up award names and categories, but it'll be torture to look at them all and remember them long enough to compare them to others.

Good luck with that.
