Awards - Cluestick Squad Edition



The Day of Atonement is nigh and boy, do the people who populate the Pixies' individual universes have much to atone for. Instead of shiny apples, the Cluestick Squad unanimously elected to chop down an entire orchard and fashion a plethora of cluestick sizes, shapes, and colors. We promise to look very threatening with our cluesticks as we encourage bosses, spouses, family members, children who don't take their required medications, mental health professionals, car dealers, digestive systems, reproductive systems, immune systems, retailers already decorated for both Halloween and Christmas, tree branches that fall on vehicles, mammographers, children who go to college far away, and fellow commuters who can't be bothered with either braking or signaling - anywhere a Pixie feels unheard, unloved, and unappreciated - to correct their ways. We will not take no for an answer!

An apple strudel to Yankee T for her always stylish verse that never goes out of style. It is the black of the Whiners Ball.

Finally, a homemade apple pie prize for Elevated Risk of Mullet is awarded to Debangel for fearing she is at Elevated Risk of Pullet. You also get a special commemoration clue stick engraved with bologna sandwich.

Update: Antiwhine of the Century"

MY SCAN IS CLEAN. THEY FOUND NOTHING. Doc says my ob should monitor me clinically since I complained of pain and slight nipple dimpling (sorry for the TMI). He agreed that my Pill is probably what caused it since my symptoms started exactly when I started that prescription. No more for me! Wish me luck breakin' it to the DH that it's his turn to provide the contraception...

Hooray for Debangel. Excellent. And tell your husband to suck it up. He can make sandwiches AND handle contraception.

Yankee T said...

OH Debangel, HURRAY!!! That MUST be the antiwhine of the century.

Hip HIp HURRAH for Debangel and her girls. So happy to hear they're clean and still so very special, but the RIGHT kinda special.

And what rhymes with vas deferens? How about last reverence? Heh.
