No-Prize Award

March 1, 2007

Envy, Groucho:28, 6006 YD

I’ve written about the No-Prize before, so no need to re-explain the concept here, taking away extremely valuable space from the most deserved winner . . .

Despite the fact that the year of 6006 is only about half way over, I feel confident handing out the No-Prize at this time; it would have to be something fairly monumental at this point to make me change my mind. This one is a lulu.

Without further fanfare, the winner of this years No-Prize is the creative team behind Conservapedia, the Wiki knock-off geared toward the conservative, head-in-the-sand type of person. Their entry on “Kangaroos“, for example, explains that “like all modern animals … kangaroos are the descendants of the two founding members of the modern kangaroo baramin that were taken aboard Noah’s Ark prior to the Great Flood.” What can I say that can top that? You can’t make this kind of shit up, O my brothers and sisters.

When I was on Conservapedia there were no entries for Discordianism, or Satanism, so have fun creating them if you feel inclined. Actually, there wasn’t much when I was there. They didn’t have any entries on Ghosts or Telekinesis . . . I guess they really don’t exist . . . sigh.

Anyway, Conservapedia, you can click on the above No-Prize image, and print it out, to claim your non-existant prize.

*****EDIT: The bit in the Kangaroo article about the Flood and the two original Kangaroos was edited out of the article as I was writing this post. Let’s wait around and see how long it takes to be placed back in.

*****EDIT#2: The Kangaroo origin is back up as of 11:04PM the same night, and the original author is NONE too pleased that his page was edited. This should prove to be more entertaining than a game of midget basketball. Stay tuned for more updates, kiddies.
