PostSubject: Suggestion: We need an annual humor award   Sat Jan 26, 2013 1:55 pm

Friends, allow me to suggest an annual humor award for BoB. We all see threads, or individual comments in threads, that cause us to blow coffee through our nose all over the keyboard, right? Couldn't we have some sort of award for the funniest of the year?

Here's my suggestion, and this is just a rough draft, so it should evolve into something better. I would envision two separate awards, one for the funniest thread, where the majority of it was, from the initial post, cleaver, funny, etc. This award could go two ways, either it has to start out funny, otherwise who gets the award if several are funny? Or it could be the funniest posting within an overall funny thread.

The second award would be for the funniest single entry into a basically (or at least up to that point) serious thread. (See PDs comment in the current Summerset Slices thread as an example of this.)

Selecting and voting: I would envision a specific time of year when each member could nominate one example for each category if they so decided, then it might work to have a "committee" (moderators, are you listening here?) to hone it down to the best 5 or 10 or 37 or what ever number works. Post them all into two, special, locked thread (don't want to alter what we're going to vote on) and give us a month or so to cast our vote. Than, on that austere day when all the major news networks will be waiting for the announcement, announce the winners and send out the Golden Laughed my Balls Off or what ever "trophy" we could put together. Although Christmas comes to mind, that is a busy time with other things, like sending boxes of live snakes to alfredo-buscatti as his SS and such, so a more "dead" time of year might work better? Perhaps tax day?

Just rough ideas, but what do you gents and ladies (and all the rest of you rabble) think?

Fine idea except your encouraging further thread derailment. Plus it takes away from it if you wonder if they are just trying to be funny for an award.. plus as a mod I'd be ineligible and therefore its a dumb idea

Would it surprise anyone if I agreed?

In a world of forced humor, I'd hate this place to turn into a jokefest. I like balance in my conversations. Natural funny happens, and that's gold; when forced, it gets old. I'm one to talk, right?

*shrug* Laughing

No "Funny Awards." The occasional funny IS the award for us all. I love you

Well you could always issue a foul for a guy purposely trying to be funny just to get in and throw him out of consideration for doing so. If you wanted to keep it real you could choose a committee to nominate and vote, but have them do it at unanounced times of their own choosing to keep people from trying to sandbag.

GK's thread about the crossbow and cob for the neighbor will win on all accounts hands down, besides you can never ell if it was serious or funny to start with anyhow. That thread will come back from like 5 years to win in the future. Competition ended.

Kaiser, did you notice you bear a striking resemblance to PB's Obi-wan avatar? My wife pointed it out initially and the more I looked the more it seemed like a good comparison.

Sorry for the thread derailment. Very Happy

Unfortunately the only avatar that actually comes up for me anymore is Jers's for some odd reason. Odd network.

Stop it...I have seen one too many parodies of movies for the single guy type folks and y'all are just killing the Star Wars one for me. Carrie Fisher was already hot in the real one, but the parody was better, now Vader is going to end up smoking a pipe while "torturing" her. I so hate you guys.

Star Wars itself was born in its mother's basement at age 30. What did you expect? Luca$ just did what any raging nerd would do: made the world pay. Laughing

A "Curmudgeon Award" would be amusing, though. Twisted Evil
