2nd Annual Golden Spork Awards!

Who needs the Golden Globes when there are shiny sporks to be had?

Feel free to strut your stuff on your way up to the podium, folks. You deserve it. In fact, most of you could have fit into multiple categories. But I stuck with one each to be fair. That and I'd hate to have to use your award to pop your ego. Exploding heads are such messy business. Bleh.

"I would like to dedicate this award to...."

Hey, you remind me of all the people who signed my high school year book... "Chelle, always stay sweet!" Barf, Gag! Haha, just kidding!

Thank you for the award. Now, I just need help putting my "trophy" on my blog. I did not even put last years trophy on it because I do not know how to do it. :(

Holy CARP,I'm a winner!
YYYeeeessssssssssss!

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger furiousBall said...

I'd like to thank my sideburns, Bananarama, my mom and dad for having sex, Rollie Fingers, the egg mcmuffin, that motivation poster my old boss had in his office (because it SURE IS hard to soar like an eagle when you're surrounded by a bunch of turkeys!), getting turned down as a Menudo member (failure is only failure when you don't learn from it!), and of course, my left testicle.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger J said...

Sweet! I love trophies. Since my blog is currently nonexistant, I'm gonna blow this up, print it off, laminate it, and wear it around my neck like Flavor Flav. That's guaranteed to be a conversation starter around the office. Thanks Tink!

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Edge said...

I want to thank everyone. This just proves I'm a bad motha f'er. Who needs the effin's writers guild when you have blogs?

At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Brody said...

I'm happy to inspire incontinence. Thanks for the Golden Spork.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Mamalujo said...

You do limericks? I gave you a challenge.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Peggy said...

Thanks Tink!

Two years in a row!!!

I can't wait to get home and add it to the trophy case!!!

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Alli said...

Aww Tink. No, you're the sweetest. No, you are! NO, YOU!

Oh Gosh. Where do I begin???.....

*holding back my tears as I squeeze my Golden Spork*

....I'd like to thank the sweet sweet little tiny Baby Jesus in his tiny golden baby diapers.....

No really. I am just glad there are a few of you out there that read my ramblings. ;) It's funny how a blog that was meant to be only for my family and friends is now read by people all over the world....

Thanks, again, Queen Homebloy! You're the bestest!

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Mouse said...

*clutching award* I'd like to thank the little people... (smurfs, liliputians, & gnomes) and also Chef Boy-r-Dee, Munchkin (for his love, support and frequently poking me in the eye) & the makers of self striping yarn. Also to Tink, for making it so darn easy to win an award this year.. lol.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger geenalyn said...

i will cherish my spork forever....its so shiney and pretty....

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger R.E.H. said...

R.E.H. walks up on stage to recieve the award. He waves and blows kisses to all the beautiful girls. As he reaches the podium he gives Tink a heartfelt hug and plants a big kiss on her cheek... checks the room seeking out Hoop's gaze.

Only her cheek, man. Easy now.

Thank you so much for this award, Tink. I will display it proudly on my blog for everyone to see!

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Dana said...

No speech as my writer is on strike, but holy crap! I thought I was too late to even be considered.

Thanks for the Golden Spork and all of the links to blogs I need to start visiting!

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger mamatulip said...

I'd like to thank the academy...

Seriously? Thanks, Tink. I can't believe that it's been two years since I've started reading your blog, but it has. It's been MORE than two years. And in that time span I've come to get to know you and consider you a friend, one who lives in another country, far away, who I've never met in real life...but a friend nonetheless. You've come a long way in two years, girl, and I enjoy reading your blog so much. It's one of a handful of blogs that I never miss reading...even if I have to like, scroll down to catch posts I might have missed, I do.

That's sayin' something, girl. ;)

First I would like to thank my lawyer/agent/manager Marty McScrewpeople.

Next I would like to thank all the little people who I make fun of on my blog.

And of course to all those teachers back in high school that told me I would never amount to anything KISS MY ASS! I'VE WON *TWO* GOLDEN SPORKS!!! ;-)

But most of all I would like to thank TINK. Because without Tink the blogosphere would just suck balls. You freaking rock Tink!

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Hilary said...

Aww thanks, Tink. How very sweet of you. Much appreciated. :)

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Gordo said...

Hmph. So much for "Clever". I was clever enough to write an awe-inspiring speech and then trust that Blooger would post it. Not so clever at all, it turns out. :-(

Thanks, Tink. I'll display it with pride.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Ginni Dee said...

I'm so not worthy...but I'll take it anyway! (Grabbing the Golden Spork and running)

Thanks Tink, you're so generous!!

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger meno said...

I'd like to thank the people of the Iraq. Um, 'cause if they, you know, had some maps, then they would know where they are and stuff like that, right?

It's really pretty, thank you.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Tigers said...

Thanks Tink!
What a surprise! You've made my day.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Anonymous Kate said...

*holds award high above head*
I want to thank all of the people who made this possible... the big people, the little people, and all the in-between people. I couldn't have done this without you!
*brushes tear away*

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Jen said...

You're so sweet in da face!

Thank you, Tink! It's much appreciated! Couldn't have done it without you.

Cheers! ***drinking beer***

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Oh Tink! I, I, never dreamed this moment would ever come! You find me "Fascinating"! (blush) I gladly accept this award and will display it proudly on my blog. Thank you Tink!

At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Sparkling Red said...

Huzzah! My first award in Blogland!

I am officially Tickled Pink. :-)

I even figured out how to get my Spork onto my sidebar. I am SUCH a pro!

Thanks, Tink, for including me in. I would like to thank you and your crew of Sporks, for everything.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Doc said...

At 14 January, 2008, Blogger Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

I'd like to thank the academy and God and my Mom for making me so funny. I'd also like to thank my baby Daddy.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger ALLISON said...

Savory, huh? I'm savory. Hmmm... I think I'm honored. I mean, generally speaking, savory is a good thing, right? However, there's a part of me that can't help thinking you just called me a big, tender, hot piece of meat. Does that mean I'm fat? I don't want to be fat. Not that there's anything wrong with being fat. Not in the least. Fat is cool. Um, uh... OK.

I'd just like to say thank you. I am going to wear my 2-year spork award with pride, my friend.

 
At 14 January, 2008, Blogger flutter said...

Tink!! no way! Thank you so much, I am very humbled by this.

 
At 15 January, 2008, Blogger Matt-Man said...

These better be good sites to check out because if they are not, I will demand my money back. Cheers!!

 
At 15 January, 2008, Blogger Terri said...

At 15 January, 2008, Blogger captain corky said...

Yes!!! This is one of the happiest days of my life. I look forward to bragging about my award very soon. ;)

 
At 15 January, 2008, Blogger g-man said...

I'd like to thank the academy (Being you and all) for your kind words. I will display it proudly. :)

I think you and your blog are special too.

 
At 15 January, 2008, Blogger ETK said...

Ha! I was coming over here to show you this, 'cause it made me think of you: http://bentobjects.blogspot.com/2007/09/sporky-spork-faced-sporkboy_23.html

And you went and made me blush! Then I thought, wait - but I AM Bold and Beautiful! :) LOL - thanks so much, I will add to my blog today and cherish FOREVER.

Dude, you'll never get me to stop stalking you now. Tsk tsk. Can't wait to crash the wedding. ESPECIALLY SINCE I NEVER GOT TO SEE THE WEDDING DRESS!!! (still fuming about that one).

 
At 15 January, 2008, Blogger Backpacker momma said...

I had a great speech prepared but then the music started and I was cut off.

Thanks Tink! Its nice to know that someone out there thinks I am endearing!!

The only award I have/will ever won/win. Thank you Tink! Thanks for the award and the list of why I should visit all the other blogs. This increases my lurking list to a weeks fill!

Gee, thanks a lot! It does feel great (yeah, who need Golden Globes!)

 
At 15 January, 2008, Blogger Mignon said...

At 15 January, 2008, Blogger Christy said...

Holy Spork Batman!

Thank you! And sorry if this is a duplicate comment. My PC is freaking crazy! Possessed even.

I posted an entire entry about this in the "life banter" section. =o)

My life is complete.

 
At 15 January, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

I won, I can't believe I won. I'd like to take this moment to thank my mom *not* and my husband and kids who have been dedicated supporters of my blogging. I'd like to thank the blog world and blogger even though they have trouble with my photos and links. I'd like to thank Tink for even considering me for...what? I'm not done! Goddammit

 
At 15 January, 2008, Blogger mrspao said...

Congratulations golden sporkists!

 
At 16 January, 2008, Blogger DebbieDoesLife said...

Well, now I feel worthless. Couldn't you have made up one more award? "Flakiest Blogger" "Blogger who Lives Under the Delusion that she Looks like Heather Locklear" Come on Tink! You let me down!!

 
At 16 January, 2008, Blogger JerseyTjej said...

I'd like to thank God and the Academy...I'd like to thank Beyonce for letting me use her photo on my blog and Jay for sucking me up into the madness he calls blogging...I STILL want that damn name!!!

 
At 16 January, 2008, Blogger Saffa Chick said...

Ow wow, my first everrrr award! Thank you Tink ;-)...

What with that and getting engaged this week things just couldn't be any better *grin*

I am now caught up in wedding madness - how's yours coming along?

 
At 16 January, 2008, Blogger TheBirdman33 said...

Why thank you for the prestigious award!!!

When I get home I can't wait toad it to the blog side bar. Woo Hoo...I'm Snarky =P

 
At 17 January, 2008, Blogger Freakazojd said...

HOLY CRAP, I am truly honoured!! And 2 years in a row, too...who woulda thought. ;) Everyone else was so witty that I'm kind of left with "Uhhhhhhhm...face. Am. Spork. Penispeanuts." What the hell?!
Seriously though, thanks Tink! I heart you big time.

P.S. I VERY sadly missed your dress, too. Any chance a girl could get an e-mail? Pretty pretty pretty please?

 
At 17 January, 2008, Anonymous susan said...

Wahoooo! My most treasured award evah! Thanks Tink, you rock!

(so much for my poignant words)

 
At 17 January, 2008, Blogger Sunshine said...

I'll have you know, I made the very first comment on this post and it obviously got eaten!! It was the perfect balance of wit and sarcasm. Grrrr!

I'm feeling sporkily delicious and I'll get a button put up if I can pick which one I like best!

 
At 17 January, 2008, Blogger fiwa said...

My very own shiny golden spork! I always wanted one... I thought about stealing Jay's even. ;)

Thank you Tink - you are the very sweetest! Once I get caught up reading the 90 million blog posts I missed while I was gone, I will proudly display it.

Now I'm going to go sit in the corner and look at my shiny... it's mine, my precious.

 
At 19 January, 2008, OpenID gawilli said...

Sporked again! It just doesn't get any better than this. And by my picture taking hero, too. Thank you, Tink. I will wear it with pride!

 
At 20 January, 2008, Blogger Suzanne said...

I have to thank SaffaChick for pointing me to your blog. How could I resist checking out someone who hands out Golden Sporks?

Even better, you've got a list of links for me to check out. Thanks!

 
At 20 January, 2008, Blogger amusing said...

See, I saw the award on meno's blog and was quite sure it said Golden Snark Award -- and that the image was of a dart embedded into a bullseye. I am abashed now that I did not recognize a spork when that is so clearly what it is...

Hanging my head in shame....

 
At 21 January, 2008, Blogger Orhan Kahn said...

Omg, thank you! I'm so sorry I've missed so many recent posts. Life has been hectic.

But seriously, thank you so very much!

 
At 24 January, 2008, Blogger LL said...

Congrats to all the winners! Spork away!

oooh fab. I will start clicking. I do love flutter.

 
At 24 January, 2008, Blogger Jo said...

As usual, I arrive to the awards ceremony over a week late with my dress on backwards & gum in my hair. Good thing I told my hub to start reading your blog, Tink--I don't know how I missed this, thanks so much! Long live the Sporky Goodness XO

 
At 25 January, 2008, Blogger Farmer*swife said...

OK, I'm a newbie. And, as is usual with my OCD, I am now an addict. But, alas, I am no longer so techie as my small children have stolen my brain.

I can't even get my "blog archives" to read by title [yes, I went to the help section (see me blushing with inferiority)]

But, I will try. I will work hard. I will listen to Rocky sound treks if I have to because...I wanna' win ONE!?

I wanna' be SPORKY?!

Please visit me in my own blog world and help me, if you can.

 
At 27 January, 2008, Blogger HAR said...

I just found my Spork award! I am so happy I could cry. I never win anything. Okay , everyone won but I'm still happy.
I'm posting on my blog!

 
At 05 February, 2008, Blogger carymc said...

Well, it would appear I'm a little late to the party, but nonetheless, thank you, dear Tink, for this rare honor. You flatter and validate me, and this award touches me in places usually reserved for uncles and gym coaches.

thanks!

 
At 09 September, 2010, Anonymous Cheap Viagra said...

First of all, I would like to know why would you like to do such an awful spork them off? Now, everyone wants you to do it..

A almost pee my pants too!
By the way, Since it is not very common to find such an well elaborated stuff, superb indeed! I wanna congratulate you blogger pal!
