Awards and Such

The entire staff at Crotchety Old Man World Wide Headquarters and Discount House of Worship has embraced the holiday spirit thanks to the great captions this week.

Unwrapping the Yule log
By Tahtimbo
Tahtimbo picks up the Zucchini Trophy and 500 entrecard credits.
Based upon total scores, Petra was 2nd, and Matt was 3rd.

Plenty of captions received points as Jenn, Petra, Dawn, Jormen, and Lauren scored first place votes with the judges, and Dani, Mike, Reforming Geek, Shadow, and Matt tallied multiple points.

The blog has gotten a few more awards this week.
Photobucket came from

All kinds of rules, and, as usual, I don't follow them. But I do appreciate the recognition. And that brings up the second award, and Heather from was kind enough to bestow this award on the blog.


Again, a bunch of rules, but I don't follow them simply because.
Anyway, the reason both of these awards mean a lot to me is that they recognize more than me, they recognize you, the loyal reader and blog participant. In fact, Heather even pointed out how hysterically funny my commentors are. I don't know how I got so lucky to attract the most brilliant and funny readers on the 'net, but I'm very appreciative. So, if any one of my regulars would like an award, please help yourself as you earned it as much as I did.

And yesterday's Secret Santa was the best. I was lucky enough to have Kirsten from draw my name, and she would have gotten me the most fantastic present ever. Go look, and anyone who knows me understands that she got me the absolute best thing EVER.


Lastly, a special note to Greenland.

Thanks Jormengrund

What an absolutely fantastic caption! One of the best I've seen. LOL

I tried to think something up, but I failed. As it turns out, I don't think I could've come up with anything better. Bravo!
