In order to deflect the scathing criticism against Skald, not that we have ever met or even had a tin-foil conversation, I offer this nugget only to be shared within this community. (At least until 2016. or thereabout).
First, I nominate myself. Thank you.
(Takes bow to polite applause)
I hold this…trophy…um…award with great cherish.
I have been active in the Stupid Man arena since 1971 and appreciate your condolences. Oops. I meant to say [redacted See FIAO Section 4897. 2998].
Secondly, I offer my experience as a Stupid Man to all world-wide at no charge.
(A small shipping charge and handling fee apply. I’m not THAT stupid).
I appreciate Skald passing his honor on to the masses, even if he still deserves it.
[Bows to hostess. Walks off-stage. Takes bow tie off and downs a 30 year old Scotch with Skald]
Happy New Year everyone!
