This page features my special awards for egregious follies of contemporary life. (And for the uninitiated, I do sometimes like to have fun. I haven’t posted any awards in a quite a while but am always looking for a laugh, so feel free to suggest nominees or new awards categories!)
Men Off Leash - awarded for baroque examples of public sexual meltdowns. Routine infidelity and one-off poor judgments excluded. Bonus points for extreme hypocrisy, lack of self-awareness, and/or betrayal of public trust. All genders welcome (but gender equity is not a feasible goal). Recent honoree: Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
Signs of the Apocalypse - awarded to examples of American Cultural Hegemony Gone To Seed. Bonus points for intemperance, grandiosity, and display of multiple deadly sins. Recent nominee: Pizza Hut’s new Cheeseburger stuffed pizza.
