The “HEAD IN SAND” Award
Nominees in this hotly contested category will be revealed shortly.
The council member pictured above demonstrates his technique
for taking a stand on important Island issues as
rental property excesses, tourist parking aggravations and so on.
*Evidence of critical thinking skills can disqualify
a nominee in this category, albeit a most unlikely occurrence.
The “FISCAL WHOOPEE CUSHION” Award
- for the genuinely comedic expressions of fantasy
demonstrated during Council’s recent budget debates.
Talent is not lacking here either – if one enjoys amateur karaoke.
The “YOUR LIPS ARE MOVING AGAIN” Award
Successful nominees for this award must show
aptitude for detecting changes in wind direction
then quickly re-directing their own air-flow in response.
– another crowded field of contenders.
**NOTE: Award categories below have been suggested by readers:
*The “LIFETIME UNDER-ACHIEVER” Award”
- a possible shoo-in category
* The “TRASH CARTS IN THE SUN” Award
or, The “Rest in Peace ~ Dear Livability Ordinance“ Award
– for perfectly lousy attention to neighborhood “livability” concerns.
The Cameron Blvd resident who suggested this award, said of the
ordinances enforcement “it’s a bigger joke than anything on this page.”
She thinks we should rename it the ‘Laugh-ability Ordinance.’
* And, there are several other suggestions we’re seeking the nerve to post . . .
Additional categories will be added – the competition is fierce.
. . . buckle up!
