Thanks to all of you for the excellent comments to the Hagoth Award challenge. There were several that made me laugh out loud, including Dave's snide remark to Tony. After putting all of the comments through a completely arbitrary rating system, the winner of the coveted Hagoth Award is Angela Hallstrom. You can now put this coveted award on your author's bio! Ang has won this wonderful Ethnic Polynesian MisCheif doll (pictured at left) which promises to "transport you to the lush rain forests of Polynesia where the sounds of cascading water falls and tropical birds flood the senses." According to Mormon doctrine, the Polynesians are descended from Hagoth, hence the Polysnesian inspired award.
It was the fake cussing that put Angie past Andrea, Tony, and Mom who all tied for second place. Now that we no longer live in Provo, which is perhaps the fake cussing capital of the universe, I have come to enjoy life without excessive use of words like "fetch".
Special recognition go to the following people for their posts:
1. Dad Sweat - Completely surprised that you would post in the first place, but then you came up big time with the Joke Stealer comment.
2. Andrea - Gilbert Gottfried was one of only two posts that scored a perfect 20. How is this guy still employed?
3. Mom - Madonna was the other perfect 20. I loved how there was no explanation needed, just the name.
You can click on the spreadsheet below to see comments and ratings for all of the entries and to see what place you took. Again, this is a very subjective, random scoring technique that took me all of three mintues to complete. Each entry was given 1 (low) to 10 (high) points for "curious" and "disappear". The more random or weird the comment, the higher the score on the curious scale. The more I felt that the person or thing need to be eliminated from existence, the higher the "disappear" score. If you think you got shafted, go ahead and leave a comment.
