Hello again everyone. It turns out that my parents naming me ‘Nice Admin Lady’ was perhaps not quite the foretelling of my overwhelming admin genius they first thought. My excitement for the Oscars hasn’t yet abated, and I’m afraid I’ve spent more time photoshopping Benedict Cumberbatch photobombing historical events and watching the video of Jennifer Lawrence falling over her own feet on loop, than I have concentrating on counting views. This led to the WoM results I posted earlier being a little bit off kilter. So I now offer you my sincerest apologies and without further ado, present to you the finalised, politically correct, sans controversy version of the Writer of the Month awards.
NewsBiscuit mug for best picture, goes to Pinxit for the brilliant NiB ‘Russian cannibal rats ghost ship spotted in Staines high street’. You also win a healthy dollop of internet popularity, a spot on the WoM wall of fame, and I’ll let you keep your honourable mention from my earlier bungled post. Well done, Pinxit and I’m sorry for any confusion.
The mug for best factual short is awarded to andyiong for the edgy 'Madeleine McCann missing from front page of Express' which created quite a stir. A mug is definitely a much better prize than a phallic, solid gold statue for such satirical greatness.
This month’s runners up are: NewsBiscuit’s own answer to Leo DiCaprio with his consistent runner-up status, Jesus H (‘Look Back’ videos backfire as Facebook users realise how rubbish their friends really are), Peter74940 (Commuters beg unions to extend tube strike), Squudge (‘Nobnomination’ craze sweeps through Westminster), and Wrenfoe (Environment Agency begs athletes to stop coming out).
I’d like to thank Pinxit and andyiong for their understanding and fantastic sportsmanship, my Mum, Dad and goldfish for supporting me and helping me get where I am today, and the tea making facilities on the wobbly table next to the stationery cupboard, without which none of this would be possible.
In the interest of transparency, if you want to see the original post which I royally messed up you can do so here.
Sorry again for the mix-up. I’d like to say that it won’t happen again, but there’s no guaranteeing that the Eurovision song contest won’t play a part in April’s results...
