The award for Best Foot-In-Mouth Moment caused too many headaches and some nominations were perhaps better suited to honours such as the Egg-On-Face award, the Cheese-On-Toast award and the Award for Person or Persons Inadvertently Giving the Words ‘Feckless’ and ‘Gormless’ Frightening New Meaning.
So we’ll just award it to President Bush instead.
Today we’re honouring both ‘Blog Irregular’ and ‘Noob’ with our distinguished Well, I Never award. As the title suggests, this is for the person who taught us something we didn’t already know (and hopefully doesn’t require too much trawling through old posts).
My three nominations are:
– David (yes, Mr G himself), for revealing that Tommy Steele’s ‘Little White Bull’ was written by Guy’s father, Mike Pratt.
– Michèle, for breaking the news that "Fais-moi des vacances" is not a valid French expression, after all (proving that you should never trust supply teachers).
– EchoesBob, for declaring that he’d cunningly found a way to sneak back into Barn lock-ins through an open cyber window.
As usual, three is the maximum number of nominations permitted and we’ll be taking your suggestions all weekend before whittling down the nominees and presenting to you a shortlist on Monday. This will be in poll format making it very easy to select one ahead of all the others (well, in principle, at least).
Don’t forget the Weblog Awards. Voting closes today.
Have a good weekend, all.
