A little known fact of The Feste Award is the physical award itself: a large bronze casting of two naked Canadians canoodling in a canoe about to go over a waterfall entitled: ‘Everything’s Okay So Far’. It was recently in the possession of one previous Feste Award winner since it was refused by the present award winner as ‘salacious’. However, due to a, ahem, ‘hesitancy’ in announcing the 2010 contest, it has been sold. Well, truth be told, it was sold to cover the prior winner’s, a grizzled old fart salmon fisher, outstanding beer costs but that’s a long story. Short version: 650 lbs. bronze trumps a garage full of aluminum cans.

It has been purchased by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke who has installed it in the Federal Reserve Building’s foyer to signify the effects of cascading Keynesian money vis a vis the Austrian School’s temperance policies as they both relate to the ratio of debt to GDP affecting investment potentials and burgeoning possible interest rate increases brought forward by Professor Vedder of Ohio State University’s contention money flows to lower tax jurisdictions while fleeing higher tax areas thus causing a transfer of the talented to these lower tax jurisdictions. It also serves as a hat rack.
