The 2020 Whiffie Awards Show

`Ladies and gentleman, welcome to a delayed 2020 Whiffie Awards show. The organisers had a very senior moment yesterday and completely forgot to show up! Instead they hammered down a quart of JD and woke up in a field with a donkey staring them in the eye. That was an awkward call to the wife, I can tell you!
Now completely sober, I can confirm we have another great awards show to share with you tonight, albeit at home in front of a PC monitor dressed up in your finest NBC suit money or loo roll can buy.

 Anyway, enough of me rambling on and on with the show.

First Award up is……….,

Congrats to all the winners and all who were nominated.

Thanks again to TC for keeping my crazy idea alive and running 11 years after I came up with the silly idea.  I know how much time he has put into this and I really appreciate his dedication to keep it going.

You all better watch out for next year as once I get caught up on review builds I actually hope to finish a few of the whiffs I have started and maybe a few other ideas.

Congratulations to all winners, nominees, and many thanks to all builders who supply this exciting event with breathtaking submissions/works! It was a tough choice, as always, with so many good builds/creations to choose from!

Furthermore, many thanks to tc2324 for setting this all up and keeping the Academy on line.  ;)

Very cool, and also so happy that two of my builds ended up with Whiffies, in this tough field of contenders!  :lol:

Has anyone seen my trousers?
Last time I remember having them was when Brad C and I were "river dancing" on the bar accompanied by Old Wombat and Dogfighter Zen playing a ska version of The Stripper on guitar and didgeridoo.
The suit's a rental and if I can't find them i'll lose my deposit.

Not sure if they were your trousers, but a pair were seen flying from the flagpoles outside the academy after the event.  A left trouser to one side of the portal, and a right trouser to the other.  A puce coloured pair of braces was dangling from the left trouser.

Zen, you didn't drink all of that medronho, you slipped me a 5 centilitre container of it to see it would etch unobtainium.........I've tried it and the metal was only slightly marked, but the little engineering works in the next village reckons it's superb for descaling boilers.

Oddly enough..... I'm always talking about coincidences happening around here... but the one and only example of me dancing in a fashion other people could see was when I Riverdanced atop a pile of money after swimming in it. (long story.....    scumbag former boss tried to defraud the state by lying about why I was released from the company; after a long fought battle in "the courts" I was awarded all my unemployment  money so I had the bank give me a ton of 1's and I made a video of myself swimming in and and dancing on it to rub in that slimeballs face).  :angel:

Excellent! I was a bit hesitant to take a picture with my certificate, but if those Hollywood types can show of their awards on the red carpet so should we!

Display them proudly comrades!
