Barely Literate Award!

April 14, 2009


As anyone who has been around the interwebs knows, the interwebs are chock full of incoherent garbage. You KosKids rants, your Ann Murray fan clubs, your “Leetspeek” (or however those guys spell their lame-o Internet language), your AFP articles giving undue praise to Obama, your George Takei.

In fact, the pinnacle of internet literature is writing something more-or-less free of typos or bad punctuation.

Therefore, I now announce, in a shameless effort at self promotion, the most sought after Liber Ex Machina “Barely Literate Award”. Check it out in all its actual-sized majesty (I assume it will show up; WordPress gives me occasional picture problems)!

Barely Literate Award

The first recipient, assuming the want to continue to live up to the award’s title, is IMAO. They gave me the idea to use a cheesy award format to shove myself into other people’s blogrolls, so they kind of deserve it. I’ll even figure out how to get the participation ribbon in the blogroll (which is quite unimpressive right now); a ribbon will spruce up the place.

Anyone else that wants to officially earn a “Barely Literate Award” for their blog, Uncyclopedia page, Twitter, Space, or even (shudder) Facebook, leave a request with the link in the comments. If it seems to pass mustard after relatively consistent reading, I’ll let you know.

To anyone that wants to steal a “Barely Literate” Award, be sure to hyperlink it back here. And try not to clutter up the interwebs with your poorly-spelled Ann Murray fan fiction. I do have some standards, you know. If you do not meet them, I’ll hire internet ninjas to hunt you down. They work for Wi-fi access.
