For the second year in a row, Jinxmedic101 of Crew Secured – Brace for Impact has honored IMAO with the “Society for the Preservation of Armed Dinosaurs” Award:

I thought we were out of the running for the Spaddie this year, what with all the baby blogging, but apparently IMAO is still America’s best source for the advocacy of attaching weaponry to prehistoric reptiles.

THE LORD OF THE LEFT WING – Part I

Sunday, September 6, 2009 10:15 pm

Since Harvey saw fit to share his version of the Eye of Sauron earlier today, I figured I’d take this opportunity to repost this little piece of satire from America is an Obamanation! that received very little attention when I posted it over there. I think it deserves a wider audience and I hope you agree…

THE LORD OF THE LEFT WING

by Erik Nolt, Jr.

BOOK I – THE FELONSHIP OF THE QUISLINGS

This story is largely concerned with habits… bad voting habits… and from its paragraphs a reader may (with any luck) discover much of their own character and a little of their own history.

CHAPTER I: A Long, Expensive Party

Long ago, in the eastern region of Morpork, there dwelt in the fiery depths of Mount Dumb in the heart of the ancient city of Wasting-Tons, a great and powerful evil necromancer known as Lord Soros. It was here within his evil volcano lair that he set about a plot to take over all of the once proud land of Belittled Worth.

Belittled Worth
Map of Belittled Worth

To accomplish this end, he needed an army — An army of mindless dolts who would bend easily to his will and would not be tempted by conscience to stray from his mission of darkness. And so it was that he constructed his own soldiers by fusing the DNA of several lowly creatures, each selectively bred for the worst of their traits.

Eye of Soros
The Eye of Soros

He began, appropriately enough, with demons, selected for their lack of morals and pure wickedness, as well as their slyness and ability to easily possess the souls of mortal men and to tempt them into evil deeds with their glib tongues.

Next, he selected the orcs, twisted, ugly and fierce warriors capable of great cruelty.

Then, common sewer rats, cunning and sneaky and adept at spreading pestilence and disease, and laying waste to whole cities.

Finally, he threw in the essence of ticks, parasitic blood-sucking insects, as a final touch.

To celebrate the birth of this new lifeform, the evil Lord Soros threw a party in their honor, a party so infamous for its immense cost, sheer excess and unbridled debauchery, the mere mention of it will forever fill good men with the urge to vomit… and so it was that the Demon-Orc-Rat-Tick Party was born… and continues to this very day… and all of us have been stuck with the bill!

Blarney Fink
Blarney Fink (D – Massahugedebts)

Over the years, even as the endless celebration of all things wicked and depraved continued unabated, some folks shortened the name of this nightmarish cauldron of malevolence to the “Democrat” Party. Many of its witless worshipers, however, insisted on the more formal “Democratic” Party, arguing that the former ignored the blood-sucking parasite portion of their ancestry, something of which they were, surprisingly enough, quite proud. To this day, there are those that continue to try, stubbornly, to drop that pesky last syllable in spite of the protests, but find, much to their chagrin, that you can never quite manage to get the “ic” out of the Democratic Party.

To be continued…

NOTE: For those that may be curious, I already have the artwork ready for Part II and hope to come up with some fitting story content to go with it soon.

So Frank shoots me an email saying “This blog needs more nepotism! My Uncle Bruce gave IMAO an award. Post it so that I can tell my stupid little sister that I already filled my quota of family-member blogging for the year and she’ll stop nagging me to mention her costume-designing credits

Thus Uncle Bruce has honored IMAO with the “The War Against Wall Street Award” Award.

What Frank didn’t mention is that Uncle Bruce is one of those diabolical Wall Street types himself, who goes around tricking people into sending him money, which he then squanders on worthful stocks, leaving unwitting investors with nothing but their principal plus capital gains and dividends.

A low creature, indeed. And one to be avoided.

If you MUST invest, remember to only do so for purposes of spreading the wealth around, because that’s good for everybody. It’s ok not to punish yourself for your success, but DO make sure that everyone behind you has a chance for success, too.

NOTE: Still caught up. Non-Frank-family-member submissions now being accepted!

House of Payne of House of Payne International has honored IMAO with the “The Mitt Romney Honorary Suspected Arsonist Award – presented to IMAO by House of Payne International” Award.

As much as we at IMAO enjoy playing with fire, we generally discourage the combustion of non-terrorist property. Yes, we know how compulsively entrancing those pretty, pretty flames are, just as we are familiar with the dark and secret longing for the near-erotic thrill of watching the magic embers fly to the heavens as the filthy earth below is cleansed and purified.

That’s why we live in America, where the National Anthem celebrates rockets and bombs, and children are encouraged to play with explosives every summer.

Although I think this year we’ll try setting fire to a pile of over-taxed tea bags. Napalm may smell like victory, but burning tea smells like independence.

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”.

Wolfman George of Monkeys on Horses! has honored IMAO with the “Monkeys on Horses ‘You Blew It Up! Award” Award.

Why did IMAO blow up the Statue of Liberty? Several reasons:

* Because replacing the statue costs less than having Obama do fly-by photo-ops over it.

* Anything to prevent Letterman from calling her a slutty airline stewardess.

* We didn’t blow it up, we just “restructured” it.

Besides, Obama told us that if we didn’t blow up the Statue of Liberty, he’d declare IMAO “too big to fail” and have it come out of bankruptcy as a cat blog.

Helen Thomas (via her shameless boy-toy FormerHostage) has honored IMAO with the “Zombie Helen (No Brains!) Worst Blogger Since Herbert Hoover Award” Award.

First, I’d like to congratulate Helen on bravely coming out of the closet on her status as an Undead-American. I mean, sure, it was kind of an open secret like Adam Lambert’s homosexuality or David Letterman’s fetish for airline stewardesses and their underage daughters, but still, we gotta give Helen the credit she’s due.

And double credit for admitting that she’s part of the shunned “no brains” community of re-animated corpses, who prefer to feast on the crunchy, empty skulls of Democrats, rather than the sweet, chewy brains of Republicans.

It’s a hard existence. Sorta like being a vegan in Texas.

As for Hoover being a bad blogger, well, in his defense, he didn’t have a Democrat president to make fun of like IMAO does.

Marty of No Time For Recess has honored IMAO with the “This Blog Has Been Awarded The Bully In The Playground Award” Award.

I’m a little confused. Does Marty mean to suggest that IMAO goes stomping around, giving wedgies and Indian burns to all those weak, nerdy blogs with glasses & acne who think they’re so smart, then punching them and stealing their lunch money?

Or does he mean “Bully!” in the Teddy Roosevelt sense of the word, meaning that IMAO is the best thing to ever happen to the blogosphere?

Either way, he’s right.

The Center for Disease Control (via their bright-eyed eager-beaver intern/gofer cptnmoroni) has honored IMAO with the “This Blog is Swine Flu Free” Award.

We at IMAO know that the only way to prevent swine flu is to kill all pigs. Then eat their flesh because it’s incredibly tasty. And use their fat to lubricate the barrels of our rifles when we go out hunting Islamic terrorists.

Please note: although Nancy Pelosi and Henry Waxman have incredibly prominent nostrils, they are not pigs, just Democrats. Do not kill, eat, or vote for these people.

It should be safe as long as you don’t lick it” Award.

It’s nice that Joel put a warning label on this, but I served on board the USS Enterprise and I was collecting photons from the reactor long before that filthy commie Chekov snuck on board my nuclear wessel. Radiation doesn’t frighten me.

Although it SHOULD frighten YOU. Ever notice that my posts tend to glow just a little bit brighter than Frank’s?

Leave all the comments you want. Just don’t lick the screen.

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.

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.

Kim Jong Il (via his pinko factotum Ron Rockstar) has honored IMAO with the “Kim Gives IMAO Big Dong Award” Award.

This award means a lot to us here at IMAO, since Frank & I are long-time admirers of Kim’s work. Sure, we tease him occasionally about his glasses, hairstyle, and megalomaniacally ruthless oppression of his citizenry, but it’s all in good fun.

I hope that someday Obama will take a page from Kim’s book and realize that just because you’re a fanatical supporter of communism doesn’t mean you have to be a humorless enema bag all the time.

Reader Mark has honored IMAO with the “Best Blog That Used To Have A Podcast Award” Award.

I’m constantly being asked (and by “constantly”, I mean “never”) “when are you guys gonna start podcasting again?”

To which I reply “never”.

Which usually elicits a plaintive, high-pitched “but WHYYYYYYY?”

For the same reason Awards! are JPG files, not MP3 files – efficiency.

We at IMAO respect and value our readers’ time. The average speech rate on a podcast is 200 words per minute. The average speech rate of a picture is 1000 words per second. This makes posting funny pictures 30,000% more efficient than talking about them, and leaves readers more time to spend admiring the awesomeness of Sarah Palin.

But all this podcast talk is just a distraction from the REAL question:

How come nobody leaves “First!” comments anymore?

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 – 1 Award post), 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 harvolson-at-gmail.com 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!

Dennis Michael Tenney of 10eBrothers has honored IMAO with the “IMAO Wins #1 Blog Award Amongst Brain Eating Zombies” Award.

Now, if you’re like most people, you have mixed feelings about zombies. Sure, they’re fun to shoot in the head, but there’s always the risk that the shambling bastards will swarm you and eat your brains before you can make it to the truck with that hot chick that you met in that shack you were holed up in.

And it doesn’t help that zombie attacks are only slightly less common than swine flu these days.

But now there’s hope for you.

If you’re attacked by zombies, just tell them how much you love IMAO. They’ll give you a very slow high five, then totter off to feed on some guy in a suit who can’t believe his car picked today to break down and make him late for a very important meeting.

NOTE: Still caught up. Send ‘em if ya got ‘em.

Socrates of Socrates’ Academy has honored IMAO (well, Frank J., anyway) with the “Really Smart Blogger” Award.

Please note that IMAO is NOT “Democrat smart” as in “smart power“, “smart grid“, or “smart Biden“.

IMAO is smart as in when we punch filthy, tree-hugging liberals, they cry like little girls and say “That really smarts!”.

NOTE: Still caught up. Send ‘em if ya got ‘em.
