Another Year of Abject Futility?

Longtime readers of this humble “weblog” (if such creatures, like unicorns, actually exist) undoubtedly recognize that “The Hatemonger’s Quarterly” is a rather special outpost on Al Gore’s World-Wide Web. And, by “rather special,” we do not mean in a “short bus” kind of way, if you catch our drift.

Nope: For well over three—count ‘em, three—years, we’ve been offering up a simmering brand of ersatz humor each and every weekday (except for the occasional holiday, of course). We get more yuks than Rosie O’Donnell’s body.

Accordingly, you will not be surprised to hear that this humble “weblog”—humble as it undoubtedly is—has been a finalist for “Best Humor Blog” in both the 2005 and 2006 installments of the Weblog Awards. A few people, it seems, have fully recognized our e-talent.

And what, you may reasonably wonder, was the result of these storied nominations? Well, as it turns out, our status as finalists did not enable us to bring home the e-bacon. More to the point, we went down in a blaze of abject futility. Twice, we might add.

Yes, it’s sad, but it’s true. (Kind of like your credit score.) Although in the 2006 Weblog Awards we fared slightly better, we figuratively got our posteriors handed to us both times.

Why, dear reader, do we mention this? Well, we’ll tell you.

We’ve just discovered that it’s now time for the nominations for prospective finalists for the 2007 Weblog Awards. Exciting, is it not? Yeah, we thought so too.

As such, we figured that we’d urge you to aid us go for the trifecta, if you will. If we’re going to get our bottoms kicked in two Weblog Awards, why the heck shouldn’t we aim at getting trounced a third time? Can’t kids dream?

All you must do to help our unofficial striving for mediocrity is nominate us for a category here. With a little luck, pretty soon you’ll be the reader of a three-time loser.
