Top Ten Tuesdays: Why did we get snubbed by the Pulitzer committee?

10) No category for Lost fan fiction.

9) Liberal bias prevented committee from recognizing Liberal Bias.

8) Kidnapped judges in order to write investigative report on the kidnapping of Pulitzer judges.

7) Composition Flight of the Chocolate Skittles for Concerto and Barf Bag considered tasteless bordering on toxic.

6) Writing novel about taking eleven years to write a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel not the same as taking eleven years to write a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.

5) Still fighting for academic acceptance of naughty limericks.

4) Apparently none of the dillweeds who gave a special music award to Bob Dylan have ever heard of a little band called Led Zeppelin.

3) Photograph series, “What Will You Do for Mardi Gras Beads?” deemed too hot for prize recognition, but can be yours for just $19.95 plus shipping and handling.

2) Committee didn’t like our LOLcat adaptation of Tennessee Williams, Im on Ur Hot Tin Roofz Watching Ur Family Disintegrate.

1) Our nomination in the snark category was not taken seriously.

Seriously, Brando. Snark journalism is the only kind today that has any relevance. Except for LOL journalism. I can has newz?

UC, LOL is so 1992. Gawd.

I haven't read his novel, but I love his short fiction. I'm just bummed I didn't get to see him read when he was here.

I'm sure the LOLcat Tennessee Williams adaptation would have won if the committee had asked me what I thought and they would have been paid in chocolate Skittles too.

If Tennessee were alive today, I'm sure he'd be writing in LOL. And what can I do to get on the committee to rock the Led Zeppelin vote?

I think the LOLCat adaptation was dinged because it should have read "Ceiling Cat waches frum tin roofz"

your best yet!!!

Snag said...

Set one of these to music for next year's competition.

Jennifer said...

I think it would be Flight of the Chocolate Skittles for Concerto and Body Bag.

Low Key said...

Hunting of the snark, perhaps?
Taking eleven years vs writing about it, Nice one Brando, I needed a lie down.

12) Pulitzer committee insists on being bribed in Euros

Brando said...

There's a Chocolate Skittles trilogy:

Barf Bag
Colostomy Bag
Body Bag

It's like a musical confectionary of Dante's Divine Comedy, only you never get out of the Inferno.

Brando said...

TEH CATZ STAYZ.

I think this blog would be much more popular if you posted cute pictures of cats every Thursday. Perhaps with an amusingly misspelled caption.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

Brando is now banned from his own blog.
