Reader David has honored IMAO with the “IMAO Awesomeness – When Only A Major Award Will Do” Award.

If you don’t recognize that picture, it’s a scene from “A Christmas Story”, wherein Papa bursts with pride over his acquisition of a leg-shaped lamp, much to the chagrin of his wife, who is probably a little put out that her own legs lack such delicious curvature and definition.

And so it is with every other blog in existence, gazing with the bitterest envy at the awesome curvature and definition of the chortle-fest that is IMAO.

I weep at the miserable existence of these lesser beings.

As a mercy, we should invade their blogs, kill their authors, and convert them to IMAOianity.


To join the exclusive club of blogs who honor IMAO and have your award featured on our sidebar with a link to your blog, make up a fancy award image honoring IMAO, blog about it, and drop a link in the comments.

Keep it PG-13, and if it doesn’t suck too terribly bad, your award will be duly noted in a post (Current estimated wait time – 3 Award posts), and placed in the sidebar with a link to your site.

As added incentive for people to honor IMAO with worthless, made-up awards, those who do so may proudly display this worthless, made-up Participant Ribbon:

If you don’t have a blog, then send your image to and include a link to one of your favorite IMAO posts.

For the Photoshop-impaired, here’s a guide to making mediocre fake pictures with Microsoft Paint

Or try the free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Maximum sidebar image width is 190 pixels. Please make sure text is at least barely legible at that size.

Now get honoring!

    Can we stop with the awards please??? Seriously, enough is enough.

  2. Jimmy says:

    Anna, I count 36 awards and there’s room on the side bar for almost double that! Apparently, 36 is the magic number to cause Frank to take vacation which leaves Harvey, Basil and the vacuum monkey to post flying cows this week.

    If you don’t recognize that picture…

    Careful with that award. It’s Fragile. I thinks that’s Italian for something.

  7. NunyaB says:

    Aww, I like the IMAO awards too, FWIW. Although admittedly it’s hard to improve on the “Fred Is Amused” one.

  8. Son of Bob says:

    How could any REAL American not recognize that picture?

    IMAO. Curvy. Heh.
