Ok dudes well isn't this interesting. So much happens when I'm gone. Seems that TIWWWB was put on the nominee list for a Koufax award last Thursday. No I don't know WTF it is either, it's some kind of lefty award's for blogs. Koufax was a lefty, get it? Hardy har. I guess if you're a lefty it's better than calling it the Bill "Spaceman" Lee Awards. Anyway TIWWWB is up for Best Single Issue Blog. (Boy is that ever appropriate LOL :) Also, Screaming memes of the TIWWworld is also in the running (Best New Blog). Congrats Memes!
The... possibility that these two blogs aren't "really" left-wing at all, does not seem to have been raised in either thread. But hey, why should it? They're real, right? Who can say?
So apparently the Commissar guy at Politburo Diktat got a wind of this and gave a.. diktat, I guess, to his readers to go vote for TIWWWB. Check out the thread, IWW's got a few votes, though (sigh) probably not enough to put him (her?) over the top.
But! The plot thickens! Apparently now the guys at Koufax awards have.. figured it out. Figured out that all might not be as it seems, that is. Why, you see, (they say, in an "Update"..heh ;), they knew that these two sites were parodies all along! it was just a "honey pot"! That's why they put TIWWWB on the list on Thursday but then made this "we knew all along" post on Monday. Right? Ha ha so the joke's on us! Don't you feel stupid! I know I sure do! Um.. LOL. Anyway, that's their story and they're stickin' to it.
Just some of the TIWWWBy goodness we've all come to expect.
UPDATE: Oh, and if you read between the lines of his "Update1", what he's saying is he got lotsa emails over the weekend warning him "Hey, psst TIWWWB is a parody dude don't let them spoof ya". But uh, he knew all along. Yup, that's his story alright. ROTFLOL
UPDATE 2: over a day now and still none of the Koufax Award readers seem to have a clue as to which are the two "honey pots". Boy this has been a long round of Final Koufax Jeopardy. That Jeopardy jingle just keeps going and going, getting on my nerves. But of course, the joke's STILL on all of us "wingers"! I sure feel stoopid! (BTW, don't you love how lefties, so incomprehensibly, use "winger" as shorthand for "right-winger"? Um, by dropping the "right" part of that equation, didn't you become too vague? Explain it to me lefties, is a "winger" a left-winger or a right-winger? If "winger" is short for "right-winger" then do tell, what's short for "left-winger"? or is there no such thing as a left-winger? It's kinda like calling Koufax a lefty and Don Drysdale a "hander". Mayks cents2 ME!!!1)
