Now that Le Clown has grown bigger, and by bigger, I mean 200+ readers, I thought I should reintroduce the Alan Smithee Blog award to you. Why? Because I visit your blogs, and I read your posts, and I comment on your work, and I fail to see this prestigious award on your own blogs, and it hurts my feelings. A sad clown is a sad thing. So.
Introducing the Alan Smithee Blog award! And it’s all yours… You’ve been nominated for a Liebster award? a Versatile award? an Awesome Blog Content award? a f*cking Oscar?, and you want to pull a Marlon Brando on the prize? Fret not! The Alan Smithee Blog award is for you. You don’t need to nominate a single other blogger for it, nor will you have to give anyone your social security number for it. Simply save it to your desktop, and add it to your blog – OR don’t! It’s yours to do what you want with it. Stop the chain-letter awards, I say! Stop caressing your ego with these meaningless awards and risk the wrath of your spouse! Save the wales, and claim the Alan Smithee Blog award now, before I change my mind.
The Alan Smithee Blog award is available in two versions.
The large version of the Alan Smithee Blog award is available exclusively in beautiful black and gold colours. It’s elegant eye chart layout will make you the envy of every
opthamologists bloggers this side of town. Its impressive 250*400 pixels dimensions will convey the illusion that you walk taller than the rest, but that’s just an illusion – as we all know that opting for LARGE is only your way of compensating for wanting the actual smaller version of this award.
So go ahead, don’t compensate, and take the smaller version of the award. This 125*200 pixels version comes in the same glorious black and gold colours, and stylish eye chart layout. It’s 50% smaller- if you haven’t done the math yet – and will fit better on your blog. You can also carry it in your wallet. And you’ll sleep better at night. We’ll all sleep better at night. Trust me.
The Alan Smithee Blog award has its own static page. Just in case you get lost.
