This one might require some thought as well as something for you to gnaw on. It’s the award for most memorable foot-in-mouth moment, which we have imaginatively called our award for the Best Foot-In-Mouth Moment (and did not steal from the British Plain English Campaign, honest).
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the expression, this basically means saying something nonsensical.
Imagine someone talking with their foot in their mouth and you’ll get the idea.
The Plain English Campaign, an organisation opposed to jargon and the ambiguous presentation of public information, give out a similar award each year to the public figure – usually a politician – who is deemed to have made the year’s most baffling quote.
A good example is Donald Rumsfeld’s "There are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns," which won him the award in 2003.
To broaden the nominations, you can also suggest examples of something written in good faith that just sounded so wrong (although nothing from the chatroom counts, so get that idea out of your heads right now, thank you very much).
Please submit your nominations for our blog equivalent here – that is to say, it must have something to do with this blog and those who make use of it. You’ll be able to vote on your favourite over at the rather appropriately-titled Stuff & Nonsense page tomorrow.
On that page later today, you will be able to cast your vote for our Best FEd Put-Down award. Thank you for your cringe-worthy nominations.
eBay sellers won our Most Shameless Self-Promotion award.
You can also while away some time in the chatroom today between 3PM and 5PM (UK time).
Don’t forget to keep voting for us in the Weblog Awards. We’re still in second place. You can vote every day until Friday, when voting ends.
