Catcher of the Fly

Your mama always told you, "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar." Personally, I've always found you can get the best results with a fresh road kill. To put it another way, if you raise a big enough stink, you can't be ignored.

It might explain the tactic of one alleged municipal road-kill collector by the name of Rich Lugari, author of the weblog De Civitate Dei. Clearly this man would have stopped at nothing to curry the favor of the exalted judges. Entries preceeding the final vote have exploited not only homeless men and puppy dogs, but also the Angel Gabriel, St Therese of Lisieux, and moderately-attired pin-up girls. This was enough to make him a finalist for "best presentation" and (no doubt due to his clever use of stick men) "best design."

Hmmm, pin-up girls. I shoulda thought of that.

Yeah, roadkill works best for flies, but hot chicks works best for everyone else, except perhaps for the most cattiest of women. ;)

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to take the prize, but it did preserve me from the shame of last place...Oh, I mean it helped bless a friend. Yeah, that's it...

Anyway, thanks. :)

Really want to feel good?

Lugari closed up shop and he STILL gets into the running.

If Mr Lugari was in operation during the period of eligibility, then he's cool. On the other hand, at least one winner (who is a fine fellow in all respects) simply stopped blogging for -- I believe -- a couple of months, to complete a book. Maybe that gets in under the wire, too, I dunno. In any case, the weblog as a "Catholic" medium, has been little more than a vehicle for promoting those already in the writing trade, specifically in print media. This year's awards are sending a message, that such is beginning to change...

This year's awards are a little something I like to call: Phase I of "The Plan".

I love it when a plan comes together, don't you?
