Fans of cliched, bored and miserable journalism are preparing themselves for the announcement of the 'Pundits Moaning About Mercury Music Prize Shortlist' shortlist.
Compiled every year the shortlist can add around 5 or 6 hits to a newspaper columnist website.
Each year the prize showcases what it deems to be the best in miserable (nearly always male) journalists complaining about the Mercury Prize.
Previous winners have included Julie Burchill, Rod Liddle, and notably in 2006 every music journalist working for the Guardian, the Independent, the Telegraph and the Times.
Dr Emma Fry of the London College of Lazy Journalism (LCLJ) said that it looked liked being a 'vintage' year.
"With the actual Mercury Music Prize shortlist being okay - the sort that you could happily have an album or two from - we can expect commentators to go into overdrive. They will hate this."
However not everyone is looking forward to the list. One fan posted on the influential 'Drowned In The Same Rubbish Copy In Every Newspaper' that he was concerned that the 'Pundits Moaning About Mercury Music Prize Shortlist' shortlist was no longer relevant.
HackToes74 said, "This is just a middle class concern. Not one of the red tops carried any pundits moaning about the mercury music prize this year. Everyone gets their moaning off Twitter now anyway.
"It doesn't matter anyway, anyone knows that best moaning by pundits happened when Antony and the Johnsons won in 2005"
