The Willie award, now in its third year, is given the DUmmie notable for enhancing the good name and reputation of democraticunderground. Previous winners were TomInTib in 2009, and a tie between William Pitt and BouncyBall in 2010.
There were 23 names on the ballot for the Willie this year, most of them credible candidates who sought to make democraticunderground famous far and wide, but the final winner was a runaway.
Since the winner of the Willie is also a Top DUmmie for 2011, the Willie will be awarded with that.
The newbie award, in its first year, is given the DUmmie who’s never been recognized in the Top DUmmies of any year. There were 10 candidates on the ballot, and it was a razor-thin vote.
The winner of the newbie for 2011 is fire_walk_with_me, prominent in the “occupy” threads on democraticunderground, hinting that he was a leader, a guide, a force, a spokesman, in the [bowel] movement, with sonorous pronouncements such as “…..the occupation of the ports is hereby extended…..”
However, it didn’t appear that he could get his lazy ass out of bed to occupy anything other than the commode, proving himself another one of those primitives who yak but don’t do.
The broken elbow award, in its first year, is given the DUmmie most notorious for whining, crying, bawling, self-pitying, complaining, throwing hissy fits, and general overall moaning and groaning.Fire Walk With Me (30,602 posts) Profile Journal Send DU Mail Ignore
11. As much as I want to participate and document this
my disabled ass isn't likely to get out of bed at anywhere near that time of the morning
There were 16 names on the ballot for the broken elbow, the second very narrow race, and the winner is bobbolink.
Now, just about everybody under the sun knows of bobbolink and the 1986 Buick, and so it’s difficult to write anything new about her.
Her most notable accomplishment, as explained in her being awarded #04 top DUmmie last year:
And upon her being awarded #02 top DUmmie in 2009:The bobbling primitive created a Great Discombobulation, perhaps the biggest of all of 2010, on Skins's island, by getting the boring and tedious Bostonian Drunkard thrown off. One then hoped the Bostonian Drunkard would drown, or something, on his swimming towards another island, but alas, that was not to be, as my fellow alum relented some weeks later, letting the soggy Bostonian Drunkard crawl back ashore.
If one’s not confident one understands bobbolink, allow undergroundpanther to explain her:
bobbolink was also #12 top DUmmie of 2008, and winner of the Annie in 2010, a distinction she shared with Alan Grayson that year.
The golden bong, also in its first year, is given the DUmmie who told the best bouncy, or bouncies, during the course of 2011.
There were 12 candidates on the ballot, all but a couple of them credible, but the final winner, as with the Willie, was a runaway, not even close.
Since the winner of the golden bong is also a Top DUmmie for 2011, the golden bong will be awarded with that.
next up: December 26, top primitives #10 and #09
