My bobo and the honking thereof, part II

Proving once again that they don't read the submissions that editors send in, the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association just awarded Just Humor Me the 2008 first place Keystone Press Award for Most Bitchin' Column in Division VIII, which is Roman for Division Awesome.

The graphics dude who made the little ribbon I used when I won the same award in 2006 doesn't work at the paper anymore, so I worked a little magic on it myself:

Thanks to everyone who visits this site to encourage me even when the column sucks, as it is prone to do from time to time, such as weekly. You all are the coolest and you kept me writing this thing even when I'd rather have been shooting zombies in the face, which was always. Not that the world would have exploded if I'd have quit, but thank you nonetheless. Your support is appreciated more than you know.

And not only do I get to post that awesome ribbon graphic again, but I also get this kickass PDF with my very own name somewhere on it. I'd better print that out and bronze it before they fix the glitch that allowed this travesty.


  1. Aw, Mike, that's awesome!!! Big, fat congratulations!!!
    (well-deserved, in my opinion)

  2. Russ and Queen -- Thanks! Dudes, if I there's ever anything I can do to get one of your names put somewhere on a PDF, I hope you'll let me know.

  3. Congrats. I always enjoy you columns.

    One of your funniest parts of your blog is your lead-in comment to your email address (and not because it's the shortest part too - ha).

    That almost always makes me smile. Keep on writing...

  4. Dude, you have awesome photoshop skillz. I'm in envy.

  5. Man, I want a graphic like that! So proud of you, little buddy...

  6. Buster -- Many thanks, man. I've always enjoyed your neck of the internet as well.

    717 -- Thanks! I'd tell you how I did it, but then all the magic would be lost.

    Miss -- Dude, that is a great name you picked out there. You're like P. Diddy with the name changes. It works for you.

    Joe -- Always great to hear from you, man. Glad to see you still find time to visit the interweb, what with all the procreating you've been doing lately.
