As you may be aware, it has somehow happened that I have 'not' won the blog-award in whatever-category I was nominated. Naturally, I now pronounce the whole effort senseless and a great waste of national time, resources and webspace. I also contend that the context was fixed (but naturally) and staunchly condemn corruption in the process. I hereby declare this blogger to be much-above such nonsense as glorified popularity contests and snidely comment that it is clear that the judges have appalling taste. Finally, I congratulate the current winners for making it to the top in a contest that was clearly biased. (I also wonder, at the heart-of-my-bottom, if black magic or any other supernatural entity may to be blame for this obviously unfair debacle).
And now, after having sufficiently proved my nationality, courtesy an inability to gracefully lose any contest, I'm going to retire to lick my wounds in private.
