The Feste Award competition is a number of months away and the rules are simple: nominate a poster you believe has helped TMF to educate, amuse and/or enrich and give a link to at least three of his/her posts. Simple, isn't it?

Last year's Feste Award winner was Gritton with several deserving runners up each one consumed with jealousy and, being Feste Award caliber, lucid enough to post acceptance speeches brimming with barely concealed envy. Both GoofyHoofy and Brucewhattshisname posted classic rejoinders to why they deserved the award and why Gritton was a chart bot created by IBM's Big Blue. Or something like that – sometimes these runners-up wrote in such an erudite manner they were barely comprehensible.

But that's their level and then there's ours. You know and I know that we're not going to get even a nod at The Feste Award yet this board is an excellent site to be creatively sour. Note the word 'creatively'. It takes a skill to bitch in such a manner that isn't snide.

So, long before the call for submissions, why not take a whack at telling why you should get The Feste Award but won't because of a variety of reasons. Mine is my lack of content and I have a copyright on that so think outside that particular box.

Plus, this is a Bogey-administered board and I dearly like taking potshots at the dear boy (he's half my age) and incorporating an unflattering reference to his golf game is one of my life's pleasures. Not that he plays the game badly, no; but that at the 19th hole he can't get the ice cubes in the drink and that's telling, isn't it.

Onward and downward with The Feste Award!
