Derek of Awesometific American has honored IMAO with the “Awesometific American Awards IMAO: Over The Top Awesomeness – I’m Sorry, I Can’t Hear You Over The Sound Of How Awesome I Am” Award.

I think it’s very fitting that Captain Kirk is pictured in this award, since Frank J. was once buried under an avalanche of Tribbles, and I once beat the crap out of Ricardo Montalban in the Engineering room of the USS Enterprise using only my bare hands and an inexplicably handy vacuum cleaner attachment.

Very long stories, both. Remind me to share them sometime.


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. I’m pretty sure that Shatner is a naturalized U.S. citizen and a resident of wildfire country somewhere in SoCal.

    Not sure of his Canadian roots but I think he was raised by a family of Kodiak bears somewhere in northern Sasketchewan. Or Toronto.


  2. Hate to be the first one to point this out, but on the award itself, the word “Awesometific” is misspelled (what an interesting quandary, considering that Webster has no idea that the word is awesome enough to exist…). The last “i” in the word is missing. Check it out and award me a similar award for my spell-checking awesomeness!
