Gawd, Maude, this is a lonely board between periods of The Feste Award when everyone wants to get into the act. Maybe everyone is off making sure their posts are sufficiently apt for the Award – not that this is my concern because my posting history is not that of determination in process – I place my chances at the award at the last moment in a flurry of posts appealing to TMF's better nature in having an encompassing award structure that includes posters such as I.

Let's get serious for a moment. The Feste Award is a means of recognition to a poster who has contributed, in substance, to the aims of TMF as in educating, amusing, and informing. Right there it says that The Feste Award should have three categories. GoofyHoofy posts material that decidedly educates and informs: I don't think I've read a post of his that I haven't learned something. But amusing? Sure, he'd be a smash at a Rotary luncheon piling on fact after fact but boffo? And I'm sure that he's a hoot at parties but amusing? Fascinating, sure; amusing, nope.

And this is sheer reason that The Feste Award have categories – apart from the reason that if it isn't I don't have a snowball's chance in Hell of getting it. I have proposed The Feste Award Third Class With Palm Clusters as a means of having The Award spread over more than those competent to receiving it. Not that TMF lower its standard but that it restates The Feste Award to include say Raggmopp and me.

Consider Raggmopp as an example of someone who could use The Feste Award.

Pause.

Well, let's chose another example. Me. Consider post http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=18065061. Cuts through the morass and states, eloquently, a position and a stance. Is this not content? Is this not what TMF is founded upon? If not, then what?

I plead with all my fellow TMF posters that The Feste Award be divisional in that several Awards be awarded. Your post here, on this board, will ensure that TMF will consider it (ha!).

Vote Read for The Feste Award Third Class With Palm Cluster!

GoofyHoofy posts material that decidedly educates and informs: .... Fascinating, sure; amusing, nope.

I hesitate to post this, Michael, as I am reluctant to burst whatever fragile bubble you have, so far, managed to sustain.

Goofy is often amusing, often funny and, sometimes, downright hilarious.

Cruel words assailing your ears, I know.

I will admit that Goofy is not as consistently funny as you are - all that knowledge and substance sometimes gets in the way.

Therefore, I will support your candidacy for The Feste Award Third Class. I am reserving judgment on the Palm Cluster. I'm not sure you are ready.

I would, however, be willing to grant you a few coconuts.

For a woman of your breeding, social status and all that good stuff, you can be cruel. Krewel, krewel, krewel Klash. A dagger into my heart and, not content with the stabbing, you twist the knife and say that I do not have your support for The Palm Cluster – you are a cruel woman. Without the Palm Cluster The Feste Award with Palm Cluster is, well, third class.

So, okay, you have good-looking grandkids (thanks for the pictures) but that in no way makes up for you believing I am out-knowledged and out-substanced by Goofy even though it could possibly be true if you stretch things. So Goofy is a favored poster and writes Good Stuff. <Sniff> I can write as good as he if I had half a mind to and don't be cruel and say that half a mind is all I have </sniff>.

The final authority on The Feste Award Third Class with Palm Cluster is Bogey. I have a sneaking suspicion that I shouldn't have TP'd his workstation and it was a real error TP-ing the Gardners. I will have to cover this by doing something to ameliorate. I know! Conspire with Twitty's kids and TP his house.

I hope you all realize that I am serious about getting The Feste Award Third Class with Palm Cluster and anyone coming over from The Jester Board saying that I am not worthy is going to get slapped down hard.

Geez, Bogey, it sounds dirty when you say it THAT way.

Besides, if MichealRead has palm clusters it is his own fault. He should be using hand lotion or rubber gloves.

On the other hand, if he WANTS palm clusters, well, there is just no helping the man, is there?

Foolishly,

Burle
