And finally we reach the high spot of the evening as no fewer than 4
magnificent examples of the art of Bad Taste are re-presented for your
appreciation. There no getting away from it, Mike McT figures
prominently again, so let's get his Nomination from Vicky out of the way
first:

Btms said "... Ian is gay. Does this made him some sort of protected
species? He is being a pita atm imho."
Mike suggested "Perhaps he has run out of vaseline."

An excellent example of MV, there, neatly combined with top-class BT.

Next is, I think, a first-time Award winner, brought to our attention by
Brritski. When the spoiler for one Friday was "Pip is torn" Mr Ashby
wasted no time or decency in pointing out that "An inexpertly wielded
knitting needle will do that."

Penultimately, Brritters was in Nominating mode again (thank you for
such sterling service, Brritters!) when Fenny observed that she was
"pretty sure Jazzer's friend feels most things." (Nice one, Fenny!
Your first?)

And last, but by no means least, John Ashby appears again, this time
Nominating Paul Herber, who -when the enquiry "Excuse me Mr Daniels what
was it that first attracted you to MsMcGee?" was made, simply (and
neatly) contributed "<dead silence>".

And that, ladies and gentlerats, completes the prizegiving for this
year. And I have one last confession to make, which will tickle Btms no
end, I am sure. As you know, it was my intention to start this
evening's proceedings at 8 pm. I was carefully consulting my watch from
time to time to be sure I was ready at the appointed moment. It's just
unfortunate that I forgot that I have not yet advanced my watch to
British Summer Time!

Good-night!

Thank you, this award makes the effort of dressing up in a black frock
and pinning on a wurzel-top corsage in honour of the MeToo movement all
very worthwhile.

I resemble that remark! May I point out in my offence that I am clean
living, never unintentionally caused embarrassment, discomfort or ill-will
(poor chap). I am an hupstanding sittyzen of ill-repute as my BT Awards
demonstrate for all Umrats to see!

I would like to thank my iPad, other Umrats for feed-lines, Theresa May,
POTUS, Nicholas Turgeon and Big Boris for occasional inspiration. Long live
the NHS who recently performed my hernia surgery incorporating an
appendectomy and to thank Matron for caring for me and stopping me from
doing almost everything involving any exertion in the last fortnight,

could at least have left it in the stretch limo.

I don’t know what Min put in the case. I think it may have been a musical
instrument.

Yes, the last bit about the hernia and appendectomy is correct - and I’ve
borrowed Matron from Sid.

And that, ladies and gentlerats, completes the prizegiving for this
year.  And I have one last confession to make, which will tickle Btms no
end, I am sure.  As you know, it was my intention to start this
evening's proceedings at 8 pm.  I was carefully consulting my watch from
time to time to be sure I was ready at the appointed moment.  It's just
unfortunate that I forgot that I have not yet advanced my watch to
British Summer Time!
<thunderous applause>

Well done, MOPMOB! Thank you for another magnificent ceremony.

(I confidently await the announcement that the wrong envelopes were
handed out and that I am in fact the real winner in all categories.)

I am undeserving.
Must try harder.

And finally we reach the high spot of the evening as no fewer than 4
magnificent examples of the art of Bad Taste are re-presented for your
appreciation.  There no getting away from it, Mike McT figures
prominently again, so let's get his Nomination from Vicky out of the way
Btms said "... Ian is gay.  Does this made him some sort of protected
species?  He is being a pita atm imho."
Mike suggested "Perhaps he has run out of vaseline."
An excellent example of MV, there, neatly combined with top-class BT.
Next is, I think, a first-time Award winner, brought to our attention by
Brritski.  When the spoiler for one Friday was "Pip is torn" Mr Ashby
wasted no time or decency in pointing out that "An inexpertly wielded
knitting needle will do that."
Penultimately, Brritters was in Nominating mode again (thank you for
such sterling service, Brritters!) when Fenny observed that she was
"pretty sure Jazzer's friend feels most things."  (Nice one, Fenny! Your
first?)
And last, but by no means least, John Ashby appears again, this time
Nominating Paul Herber, who -when the enquiry "Excuse me Mr Daniels what
was it that first attracted you to MsMcGee?" was made, simply (and
neatly) contributed "<dead silence>".
And that, ladies and gentlerats, completes the prizegiving for this
year.  And I have one last confession to make, which will tickle Btms no
end, I am sure.  As you know, it was my intention to start this
evening's proceedings at 8 pm.  I was carefully consulting my watch from
time to time to be sure I was ready at the appointed moment.  It's just
unfortunate that I forgot that I have not yet advanced my watch to
British Summer Time!
May thanks for all the Good Taste exhibited in your categorising of the
Bad Taste.

Sorry we couldn't be there, but we're far away, juggling four Old
People. These are: my mother who is pathetic, imperious and very very
irritating (another trip to hospital yesterday, because she stubbornly
refuses to go to a care home); FiL, who is still fit at 90 but is
getting a bit forgetful, is very deaf, and who is flying from Bradford
to Girona in a few hours to join us for a week (which requires
significant management from this end), and the English neighbours who
are in their mid 80s, have a useless son in Sussex and who tend to rely
on us when we're here, paricularly for computer support and online
shopping in French.

Sorry for the rant, and well done again.

Not a rant but just letting off steam in a safe place. Happy for the valve
to be released as and when.

At first IRTA "juggling for old people", and had visions of you
providing an unusual entertainment in homes. Then I read it again, and
had a brief vision of some variation on dwarf-tossing before I got it ..

I was quietly pleased with the phrase "juggling four Old People". Helps
keep me sane, this sort of thing.

Agreed. I’ll drink to that. <raises glass of Slimfast> Congratulations to
the BTM and all who won awards.

I was disappointed, however, not to be nominated in any category, let alone
win an award. The fact that my connectivity has been patchy over the last
couple of years means that my lack of posts has disbarred me from
nominations/ awards. I see this as discrimination against people of bad
taste who are unable to post owing entirely to their own incompetence.
There was no helpline number given for those whose bitter disappointment
made them sad. I am therefore expressing my feelings in the only way open
to me.

Although I missed the ceremony, owing to further incompetence, I privately
had hopes of a Lifetime Achievement Award.

There is always next year, one hopes.

I appear to have posted a blank message which, when it left here,
expressed a very similar sentiment.

It's always a tricky business knowing when to give a Lifetime
Achievement Award - not when the lifetime concerned has not really been
long enough to merit it, but before the liftetime concerned ceases to be
a lifetime.

Look on it as a wish and an expectation that you have many years ahead
in which to simultaneously disgust and delight us with your execrable
taste, dear Brritters.

Nothing like eating asparagus straight from the box...

winners and to Jenny for superlative judging. Looking forward to another
umratic year of execrable taste!
