Reader Steven has honored IMAO with the “Here There Be Tygers Award For Blindly Heading Off Into Uncharted Territories” Award.

Some people fear the unknown. At IMAO, we assume it’s some sort of hippie, punch it in the face, steal it’s lunch money, then walk away laughing and singing a little pirate ditty.

Conventional wisdom – totally not our thing. Especially the wisdom part.


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 – 2 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

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

Now get honoring!

  1. How will the torrent of major awards continue? Surely we will run out of major impartial award-giving organizations soon.

    Doubtless Frank, Sarah, Basil, and Harvey would say they are humbled by this experience.

    Speaking of which, why is a major award “humbling”, when the purpose of honoring someone with a major award (such as the “Here There Be Tygers Award” award) is to un-humble them?

    I think it’s insulting to say that a reward is humbling, since it means that receiving the award makes the receiver feel small and undeserving. The only way that can be true is if the award itself is small, and the awarding organization is puny and without merit.

    Shame on you, Frank, Sarah, Basil, and Harvey, for calling Steven puny and without merit.


  2. Fred Thompson called and just saw Harvey’s post and he’s less than amused! Next to Fred Thompson, everything is very extremely puny! Harvey can expect a head punch soon from Mr. Fred Thompson and it shall hurt much!


  3. What? We actually have to MENTION the Fred Thompson Exception to all claims of size and merit?

    I thought that was simply assumed as a given, like the strong nuclear force or the deliciousness of bacon.


  4. See? There was nothing to worry about.

    And all you people thought FrnakJ would take his alter-egos co-bloggers when he went on vacay.


  5. I don’t know no FrnakJ. And wasn’t Harvey a rabbit in a Jimmy (!) Stewart movie? And what about Spacie, that flying solar sail monkey? Bummer didn’t include him, and that’s just wrong-O.

    The DOD is selling all our recycled brass to China.

    My random work is done here. I’m going to fly a cow now.
