LETTERS FROM LASKIN
Laskin makes his first annual “Moron of the Month” Award*
by Don Laskin
March 8, 2006
Are you this month’s “Moron of the Month?” There’s only one way to find out and we’ll get to that later.
As a new Observations feature, each month… or maybe every other month… or whenever the mood strikes, the staff and management of Observations will award some lucky individual or company or entity living or recently deceased the title “Moron of the Month.”
Moron of the Month is kind of like a cross between the Golden Fleece Award, presented to a public official who wastes public money, and the Darwin Award, presented to anybody who wastes themselves and/or their friends. The only difference is Moron of the Month has no rules.
Okay, one rule.
You have to have first-hand knowledge of this person, company, government body or entity.
Okay, there are two rules.
You can’t pick on anybody who’s defenseless or small furry animals or trees or oil company executives.
Okay, there are three rules.
You can pick on oil companies – just not Enron executives. I was joking, if you know ‘em you can pick on Enron executives even after they’ve been incarcerated.
Now all rules are created at the whim of the staff and management and there will be no exceptions – unless we feel like it.
Anyway, the Moron may come from business, politics, technology, the arts, sports, Ohio…whatever. And, you…YES YOU…get to do the nominating. Just e-mail your Moron of the Month selection and a bit of background on why this person or business or entity is a moron. If your entry is selected, we will make this moron famous and publish him/her/it unexpurgated (means you don’t have to go to the bathroom) save for anything that could get us sued for libel or slander. With the Web and e-mail, we’re not sure which applies. But, whatever does, we don’t want to get sued for it.
To kick things off, we’ve already selected the Primo Moron. Super Numero Moron Number One. Click on the link below to hear more.
And for the listening challenged, this time THERE WILL BE NO WORKING SCRIPT.
* If you were going to e-mail to explain there are 12 months in an annual, you, too, might be Moron of the Month material.
