***DUzy Awards for week ending December 29, 2006***

Welcome to this week's DUzy Awards, honoring killer quips, caustic comments and comedic contumaciousness from this week on DU. Congratulations to this week's winners!


Feel free to add your own choices. The soon-to-be-coveted DUzies will be announced every Friday, if I get around to it. Unless this gets deep-sixed to the Lounge, in which case, fuggedaboudit.


on Bluebear's thread: Grand Canyon park can't give estimate of age; Bush says may upset fundies

response #6 from Botany:

Good now we can go back to Paul Bunyon and Babe digging the Great Lakes
That Ice age stuff is so 1950s.

response #119 from Higans:

There is a Canyon? you mean the earth isn't flat?dear God what Blasphemy

on The Straight Story's thread: Schwarzenegger Breaks Leg While Skiing

response #15 from DeSwiss:

Not to put too harsh a twist on things, but....
...I would have thought after Sonny Bono, California Republicans would have given up winter sports completely...

OP by Philosoraptor: Yeeeee haaaah! They's havin' a hangin' t'day ma! C'n me 'n Clyde go?

We ain't bin to a good hangin' in a good long dam time ma, c'mon, let us go to the hangin' n' take a picnic basket with some o' that good fried chicken and lemonade just like the good ol' days!

We c'n take the little n's too! They's hangin' Saddam bin Laden t'day ma, he's the turrist whom what attacked us on nine one one, that'll teach im' ta mess with Amurka huh ma?

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



Poll question by JustABozoOnThisBus: Should Saddam be given a last cigarette?

I thought we really need one more Saddam poll today ... and we haven't had any threads on smoking in a while ...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



on Sparkly's poll question: What possible excuse can Chimpy come up with for blowing off Ford's funeral?

response #28 from KamaAina:

Other: Heard they would be serving pretzels at the reception
And to think, Harry Reid is gonna take ten times more guff from the MSM for being in South America, meeting with world leaders 'n' stuff, than the Maximum Leader is for, um, moving the pile of brush around? :eyes:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



on Infinite Hope's thread: ROFL! "Pope makes Christmas appeal for children"

response #1 from dragndust:

Is there a minimum weight limit?
:P

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



on Poiuyt's thread: Leave Bush alone! He spent nearly three full hours working on a plan today!

response #1 from Beetwasher:

And He Only Colored Outside The Lines A Couple Of Times!
n/t

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



OP by KG: I heard Gerald Ford supported mandatory circumcision.
dang. and i used to think he was a great guy. but now, he can burn in hell!

he probably used corn flake batter on his fried chicken, too!

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



OP by Xipe Totec: I just punted our cat down the stairs
Sorry, It was not done on purpose. Black cat, at the top of the stairs, on an unlit hallway, first time he has ever come upstairs.

I hate it when that happens. :blush:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



on sabra's thread: Bush: "making good progress towards coming up with a plan"

response #10 by Mr.Coffee:

i heard they're planning on making some flowcharts later
Crayola factories are on ready alert.

response #14 by wryter2000:

He's going to keep planning to have a plan
until the sheeple forget about it.

Hey, look! Is that the missing blonde? Looks as if a shark bit her!

response #17 by BarbaRosa:

No doubt the plan will involve some corner turning..n/t

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



on global1's thread: Just Curious - Whatever Happened To All Of Saddam's Doubles?.....

response #9 by bklyncowgirl:

One will be hanged shortly--the real Saddam will be golfing with KennyBoy Lay in Paraguay
It's the least they could do for his keeping his mouth shut during the trial.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



OP by BOSSHOG: Remember "Have You Forgotten about Bin Laden?"
You know that powerful, well written, cosmically patriotic, right on the money, totally honest :sarcasm: country and western song by that awesome patriot daryl worley telling us all we have to go to war and kill and blow things up. And then he asks (presumably us evil liberals) have you forgotten about bin laden?

response #3 by TomInTib:

I printed up them lyrics, BOSS
And if our little town had a recruiting station I would be standing in front of a desk right now.

Hell, I am absolutely rarin' to go after hearing that fine song.

Thank Heavens and George W Bush that I am eligible for TDA until I am 62 years young.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...



on kentuck's thread: Beware when Bush goes to his ranch to "think"...

response #7 by Benhurst:

When he's at the White House, he seems to moderate his closet
drinking fairly well.

When he is at the "ranch," he is under no constraints.

Consequently I think he is more dangerous when he is playing cowboy at the pig farm.

response #18 by madeline_con:

"...playing cowboy at the pig farm."
Wouldn't that make him a "pigboy"? :rofl:

response #21 by Benhurst:

Since he actully doesn't do any of the work, I guess
he would be considered a "rhinestone pigboy." :rofl:

response #20 by Neshanic:

Someone should add two dummy TV remotes on his coffee table. Hilarity ensues.

1. I like it. . . We have
some clever kids here, and the material is a rich loam.

3. And I think 2007, amid the horrors to come, will provide lots of fodder
for DU's comic geniuses.

4. It was hard to narrow it down to just these
Maybe next week I'll try to be more comprehensive, but dang, this is a big tent indeed.

5. Awww....keep this going!
Tell ya, I really appreciated the laugh, and I stand in awe at the various flavors of subtle, dry, overt, or razor-edged wit demonstrated by my fellow DUers.

:wow: :spray: :applause:

No :sarcasm: there either.

8. I apologize that this was moved to the Lounge.
I have moved it back to GD.

I think this is a really great idea, and I think it would be an awesome weekly addition to DU. I hope that our error in moving this out has not discouraged you from sticking with it. I'm sorry.

13. Thanks, Skinner
I can appreciate that it may have been considered a little frivolous for GD. Nice of you to reinstate it. I'll aim to do this every week. :)

9. These are great choices, very witty, very funny!
Thanks for gathering these and posting them. Reading this makes for a welcome relief from all the Saddam stuff, especially the media's ongoing orgasm about him.
