BSA Bob posted this little comment yesterday:
As the year begins to wind down, & from an impressive field, my nomination for the most totally shagged commentary this year goes to Gai Waterhouse’s criticism of Julia Gillard’s clothing during her visit to Japan. Before putting this up I went back to a photo of the scene, & saw what goes beyond cliche & can only be called “utter devastation”. Listening to the self important whinings of this wrangler to the very seriously rich, the French & Russian revolutions suddenly begin to make complete sense.
Little did he realise that his comment would be the inspiration for the annual BSA Bob Award for the Best and Worst of (insert year here).
We invite you to submit your nominations.
Tell us what you think were the highlights and the lowlights of 2011. Tell us what really urked you. Have a good rant and get it off your chest. Tell us also what gave you the most bang for your buck, or what gave you bragging rights. Who or what inspired you in 2011, or what is best forgotten?
Was it a politician? Was it someone in the media, or perhaps a TV station or a newspaper? Was it a sporting team, a documentary, or a discovery? Was it something you experienced in real life? Is it someone you know? Was it something you read? Was it a world event or something of no global significance?
There are no boundaries and there are no limits to the number of nominations.
Even though the parliamentary year is over, the calender year still has a bit to offer so I’ll let this thread run for a couple more weeks in the unlikely event that something sensational and inspirational fires us up in the short time left.
A prize will be awarded to the blogger who comes up with the most outstanding nomination (as determined by an independent and unbiased panel of judges). The winner can choose between the last remaining unused WorkChoices mouse pad in existence, or nothing.
Get started on your entries. The ‘nothing’ will be keenly sought after.
