In usual SnarkerNacle fashion, we like to decry everything that is wrong about the Bloggernacle, and in this spirit we announce the 2007 Giblets, the horrid hairy-tongued aftertaste of the Nacle. In case you weren't around two years ago, we originally did it back then too. We didn't do it last year because we did the Niblets, and that ended up being so bad it was in and of itself the Giblets and doing another one again would have been horribly redundant. But, alas, poor Joseph Addison our anachronistic brother in snark was burdened, freeing up time for us to do the Giblets with some extra gravy!


Here is the list of Giblets categories we came up with thus far, to give you an idea of where it should go:

Best Blog Post About Court Case Winnings Including Fawning Over Righteousness of Winnings In Attempt to Convince Self it Hasn't Been Complete Waste of Time

Best Bloggernacle Big Blogger to Sneak Over to the DAMU Side and Drop the F-bomb Because Nobody on the Bloggernacle is Paying Attention to Him

Best Threadjacker on Anything Even Remotely Tangentially Kind Of Sort Of But Not Really Gay

Best New Big Group Blog Created Out of Obedience to GA Commands to Give Gay Ex-Mos a Place in the Bloggernacle

Best New Aggregator Created to Shoehorn DAMU Blogs Into the Bloggernacle

Biggest Blog for Sex/Transgender/Gender/Breastfeeding/Gential Mutilation Posts Gone Totally Awry

Biggest Conservative Group Blog to Fade Away Most Unnoticeably

Best Crazed Personal Attack Over Something Totally Irrelevant, Like Snacks At Church or Plastic Toys in Nursery

Best Blog Post About Miserable Misunderstood Europeans Who Suffer Mightily at the Hands of Naive American General Authorities

Best Blog Post Exposing the Foibles of Church Presidents Making it Easier for us to Falsley Justify Our Sins

Best Blogger Who Goes Completely Bonkers When Commenting on Abortion

Now, feel free to submit whatever category you like and they will all get piled into the mess.

Then, unlike JA's elitist group of "whiney and wrong" self-promoting category nominators, you, yes you beloved gentle reader, will have the power, the unmitigated, raw, burgeoning power of nominating whoever the heck you please for any and all categories. Oh, sweet pleasure of vanity! You too can nominate yourself anonymously just like they did. Or, you can rise above narcissistic vanity and actually nominate someone else. Your choice. Why wait for DKL to tally up your Niblet votes when you can voice your opinion here and now? (Wait a minute, I seem to recall him complaining about the lack of transparency in the nomination and voting process in last year's Niblets, and yet he participated as one of the secret nominators and now he is running the votes off the blog site he administers. I guess when it comes to transparency, it is all relative.)

Snarkimus!!!

I get the distict impression that you already have ideas for winners in all of the categories that you have suggested. :D

If that is so, I'd realy appreciate it if you'd give me a clue on this one: "Best New Aggregator Created to Shoehorn DAMU Blogs Into the Bloggernacle." As a representative of Main Street Plaza, I'd be thrilled to know of the existence of a Mo-aggregator that would allow even polite exmos to get a link in now and then.

I submit:

"Most sickeningly judgemental post to go on and have the gall to attack commentators to task for being judgemental because they don't agree with the post's original judgementalism."

Or something. A certain "most commented on post ever" deserves this award.

I submit:

"Most transparent use of that classic Max Golightly chestnut, 'The first great Mormon writer will be excommunicated from the Church for his writing,' by a second-rate writer attempting to cash in on his third-rate mid-life crisis."

c.l.hanson,

I suggest you contact John Dehlin at http://mormonblogs.org/ and ask him to list it. I am surprised it isn't already listed.

SP:
Did you mean this? "Best Blog Post Exposing the Foibles of Church Presidents Making it Easier for us to Falsley Justify Our Sins"??? Is there a way to justify our sins that isn't false?

And somebody is still quoting Max Golightly? I'm stunned. That's like writing an ode to Salieri.

Hmm, and could you link to this "hypothetical" one? Must have missed it.

latest anonymous,

See here.

To save you the time, it is Kaimi posting as Cafeteria Mormon at the DAMU site known as "Further Light And Knowledge"

Kaimi? Really? WTF?

Snarkimus Prime said... @ April 3, 2008 at 9:35 PM

Yes, Kaimi, it was you.

I think you must have taken that photo at the supermarket in my old St. Louis 'hood. Mmmm, pig snout.
