And I'm not just referring to all of the spelling and typing awards I've won. For example, at last year's company picnic, I was given the award for Most Visible Scalp. At a previous place of employment, I won the Steve Forbes look-alike contest we had. And let us not forget my hard-earned victory in the Try-County Calamari Eating Contest of 1998. I know I still haven't.
So while I'm accustomed to winning great awards, it's still a nice surprise when, just out of the blue, a well known and prestigious organization decides to bestow yet another honor upon me.
Such was the case last week when I received the happy news from Emma Lee at Awardingtheweb.com that I, your meek humble correspondent, have been chosen as one of the Top 45 Humor Blogs on the entire internet.
Yo EmawKC, I'm real happy for you and I'mma let you finish writin' this blog post.Er. Ahem. Anyway,
But I jes wanted to say that The816 is the funniest blog of all time.
OF ALL TIME!
Here's a bit of the email Emma Lee sent.
Dear Emawkc,Now, I never really was able to discern what the scoring system was, or whether this was just some kind of trumped up scheme to get me to link to their website. I don't think that's really relevant to this discussion anyway.
Congratulations! Emma Lee here, and your blog, 3 O'Clock AM, has received our 2010 Top 45 Humor Blogs award!
You can see your name amongst our winners here at: www.onlinemba.com/top_humor/#3_OClock_AM
Winners were chosen through a scoring system led by internet nominations,
which came from your reader base!
What is relevant is that this is probably the biggest award I've received since Time Magazine declared me to Person of the Year in 2006.
