I can't imagine what use he might make of the free Fool products should he win.

I didn't want them either, so I formally declined them. Otherwise they will be reported as income and taxed.


For that same reason on winning The Feste I forwent the Lamborghini, a week on the Riviera and…oh, those aren’t being offered anymore, are they? Ah, well.

On a sadder note: the sculptured trophy for The Feste (a large bronze of two Canadians copulating in a canoe about to go over a waterfall and titled ‘Everything’s okay so far,’) is no more. It was lost in an unfortunate gardening accident no one really wants to talk about.

I note the list of this year’s nominees are the usual of talent, competence, and ability. Not one grizzled old fart smelling of salmon guts on his jeans (or similar). Where’s the fairness?

To whomever wins The Feste Award my congratulations. Accept the kudos of your peers for your additions to this community. And hold out for the Lamborghini.
