Justin of Guano Loco has honored IMAO with the “Guano Loco’s Promoter of Common Sense” Award.

Promoting common sense?

Well, flattered, to be sure, but in good conscience I must confess that we’re actually just a bunch of pajama-wearing, basement-dwelling goofballs who take malicious pleasure in mocking the absurd, short-sighted, emotion-laden, reason-deficient ideas of the bleeding-heart left wing in the manner best suited to hurting feelings and making blow-hard, stuffed-shirt, power-hungry, appeasement-mad politicians and their squid-spined supporters pop their collective corks.

But then again, to paraphrase Arthur C. Clarke “Any sufficiently advanced satire is indistinguishable from common sense”.

NOTE: All caught up. Send ’em if ya got ’em.


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 – 0 Award posts – NEXT SUBMITTED, NEXT POSTED), 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!

    As humbling as this award is, I cannot accept it. To do so would make it appear that the award is intended for me personally, and not for IMAO as a site. So please, stop with the incessant demands that I accept this humbling award.

    And the mushroom cloud is obviously fake anyway.

    Dr. Heywood Floyd would be proud.

    No, the mushroom cloud image is real. That image is from a photo session where the same group of Obama supporters that buzzed Manhattan in Air Force One went for another joyride, this time in the space shuttle.

    I was expecting more beef guano on the bat skeleton.

    Hey, does my award image have to be a JPEG? Can I use a PNG of TIF file instead?

    Anyway, here’s a link to my post. And where do I put the award?
