Losers! LOSERS! There are NO losers in The Feste Award ! <Credits due to Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own>

There are only multiple second-place winners. That's right, 750,000 secondary winners. <Isn't this en vogue politically correct NewSpeak wonderful?>

Me, well I am holding out for that coveted show position, <What would a Fool race be without a Trifecta?>

Shucks, I didn't even KNOW I was a contestant until today!

Waiting for the results to be posted as official,


Gawd, Maude, you're right, ~ray. Never thought of it that way.

You may want the show position and it's odds on that GoofyHoofy may (repeat, may) get the win position but I want place. I want the coveted Feste Award Third Class with Palm Cluster so bad I can taste it. If you are a contestant for that, I'll have your guts for garters. I mean it.

This year is my year to get Recognition TMF style. To do that I will do anything illegal, immoral or fattening. My efforts at bribery have failed (I offered TMFTwitty an undisclosed sum in a coffee can on his porch and his dog bit me – well that's not exactly true, the dog licked my hand and Twitty's kids bit me) so I have to change my modus operandi to the more subtle: kidnapping TMF peoples' kids.

I said that to Twit and he said 'which one do you want?' So I stopped that idea when I realized that if I kidnapped Twit's kids I would have to take them to Chucky Cheese and supply the quarters for the roller ball machines. Plus, I would probably have so much fun with them I wouldn't want to give them back and would invite Twit and Mrs. Twit for a hootenanny.

But back to your theme that there's no losers just a lot of second-place finishers. I agree there's a lot of us that have not the slightest chance at The Feste Award since that appellation is for the crème de la crème but how about us others? We toil in these vineyards also. ~ray, I ain't gonna settle as an also ran.

This year it's The Feste Award Third Class with Palm Cluster or I'm outta here even though my subscription is until 2005.
