When Clowns Go Bad: The Final Countdown to Noah's "12 Days of Christmas Scorn"


Tomorrow the waiting is over. It's Day 1 of the Scorn Awards, Con Men, Grifters, and Outlaws, and the schedule is overflowing, with no fewer than seven awards:

1. The Judas Iscariot 30 Pieces of Silver Award
2. The Lester Maddox Award (in the shape of a pick handle)
3. The Three-Card Monte Award
4. The Bump Off Granny Award
5. The Sodom and Gomorrah Award
6. The I Hold My Contempt to Be Self-Evident Award
7. The Public Enemy Award

Note: Anyone who can correctly guess in advance the winners of all 12 days' worth of Scorn Awards will win a really fabulous prize. It hasn't been exactly determined yet, but we're thinking along the lines of a car, or a trip, or possibly a placemat from a very nice diner we know in the Bronx.

The Three-Card Monte Award has GOT to belong to president Shamwow, for his performance at "hopery-changery."

Excellent guesses. All I can say for now is that you shouldn't be surprised to see all the folks mentioned so far receive rightful recognition in the course of the Scorn Awards!

Thanks for joining in. You're already clearly in Noah's version of Christmas spirit.

Clearly the Bump off Granny award goes to Virgina Foxx of NC. If we could only start with her.

Hey Anon! Rest assured. Foxx gets her well-deserved award, but you'll have to wait until Day Ten!
Keep in mind folks, not all awards go to individuals. Institutions and organizations are fair game, too!

Worthy candidates all. Much time was spent matching candidates to awards and, certainly many qualified for any one of a number of awards. You'll just have to wait and see who gets what. I wish I could throw so much more than just awards their way, chinese throwing stars, for instance!
