Our Periodic Exercise in Public Humiliation: The 2011 Weblog Awards!

Long-time readers may recall a couple of years ago when we pleaded for their help in qualifying for an annual Weblog Award.  While your support was overwhelming, making Planet Moron one of the most nominated humor blogs, we had neglected to consider one important detail:

We suck.

As it turns out, sucking does have an impact on whether or not you make the finals for a Weblog Award. 

We did not know that.

Well, we’ve definitely learned our lesson.  Unfortunately it was the wrong one because we’re pretty sure Planet Moron is no better than it was before, in fact, it might actually be worse.

So why bother again, you ask?

First, let’s just say we have a little something we like to call “high hopes.”

Or possibly, “pathological delusions.”

We’re good with either one.

Second, we clearly qualify.  For example, according to the rules, “URLs are required.”

We have always been pro-URL here at Planet Moron and take a backseat to no one when it comes to having one.

Also, “pages with dated entries that existed at some point during the year 2010 are eligible. “

Make that two for two!

Finally, the Weblog Awards we’d like to enter are run by a different group than the last one (which has since shut down ) so there is a good chance that the new judges have a more highly developed sense of humor and appreciation for sophisticated political satire. And are also drunk more often.

If you are so inclined, click here, and nominate us for the humor category (if you prefer the political category, please do both).  You do have to make three nominations overall (they can be in different categories so please consider any other blogs you enjoy) and you will have to include an active email address so they can send you a link that you will have to click so they can verify your entries (other instructions are on the site).

I know this is a lot to ask given that many of you will have to put down at least one of your drinks to fill out the form, but it’s for a good cause!

Well, a cause, anyway.
