View Full Version : runners-up to the Top DUmmies of 2011

Greetings to all on this, the eve of one of the two most sacred holidays of mankind, and that day in which we begin the countdown to the Top Ten DUmmies of 2011, culminating one week hence with announcement of the main award, Top DUmmie of 2011.

Turnout in voting this year set a new record, although unlike last year, there were hardly any close races. One might recall that last year, Top DUmmies 03-08 were each separated by a single vote, and the only runaways were for Top DUmmie 02 and the Top DUmmie of 2010.

The 02 Top DUmmie and the Top DUmmie of 2010 had set records, but just as the landslide presidential election of 1980, one of the largest landslides in history, was subsequently overshadowed by the even larger landslide of 1984, well, the generalissimo dude and the Die alte Sau have bit the dust this year, holding such records no longer.

But first, the runners-up to the Top Ten DUmmies of 2011.

20-cbayer (new)
--a long-time moderator on the old Skinsís island, notorious for dousing campfires almost as soon as theyíre lit; oneís sure that many shout-outs to the DUmpster here evaporate even before one sees them.

19-The Straight Story (04 in 2008)
--the king of sob stories on Skinsís island; never wins, always loses, in life.

18-Mineral Man (19 in 2010)
--quite possibly the eminence grise of Skinsís island, although superficially underrated in his informal power and influence; the wise calm serene elder sage, the John-Lennon-in-old-age lookalike.

17-William Pitt (02 in 2005; Top DUmmie in 2006; 06 in 2007; 20 in 2008; Willie in 2010)

16-Skinner, EarlG & Elad (Skinner 15 in 2005)
--the Big Three who run Skinsís island.

15-kpete (14 in 2007; 14 in 2008)
--the copy-and-paste queen of Skinsís island, who does so from her Streisandian digs in a gated neighborhood in San Diego; as with many other primitives, part of the 1%.

14-kentuck (12 in 2005; 13 in 2010)
--a strong contender for 02 or 03 or 04 Top DUmmie this year, but blandly and colorlessly faded in the last quarter.

13-Sub Atomic (new)
--an obnoxious professional queer whose time on Skinsís island was short, alas.

12-Proud2BlibKansan (03 in 2008; 19 in 2009; Top DUmmie in 2010)
--destined to be a constant presence in Top DUmmie every year, until she self-immolates in a fiery passion and orgasm of Hate and rage.

11-NNN0LHI (new)
--grouchy old Don, his income and property being voraciously consumed by a corrupt political machine which he figured would take care of him, if he took care of it; he diligently took care of it for thirty years, and alas has yet to figure out itís not going to take care of him.

Congratulations to the runners-up, which is no small feat, but one hopes at least some of them make it into the top tier for 2012.

next up: on Christmas Day, the four special awards

Actually, I was pretty disappointed.

But the People have spoken, and one accepts the verdict of the People.

The only ones I'm happy about are the #04 top primitive and the #03 top primitive, who both ended up exactly where I thought they should end up.

special awards (4) on Sunday
top primitives #10 and #09 on Monday
top primitives #08 and #07 on Tuesday
top primitives #06 and #05 on Wednesday
top primitives #04 and #03 on Thursday
top primitive #02 on Friday
top primitive of 2011 on Saturday, New Year's Eve.
