The Shorty Awards

It's awards season and what would the season mean without The Shorty Awards? Twitter's answer to people we care even less about than TV and movie stars.

Here's the humor category:

Gisele Bündchen - Who doesn't laugh when she hits the catwalk?

José Sarney de Araúj - Who is funnier than a Brazilian Senator from South America who speaks no English?

Chelsea Handler - Okay, fine.

Lisa Cuddy - Dean of Medicine @ Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. Some people need to get a life and by some people I mean the delusional person who nominated someone who doesn't exist.

Kevin Sorbo - When you think funny you think Sorbo? Maybe dressed as Hercules, yes.

Suze Orman - Who doesn't laugh when Suze goes over your financial situation with you?

Carlos Mencia - Comic who steals from other comics. This is a non-ironic quote from the person who nominated him: "... watching him perform is like seeing several shows all at once."

Why yes it is.

Stephen Colbert - Okay, yes.

jerry_seinfeld - Still a yes only he doesn't tweet because there aren't enough hours in the day to spend all his money much less stop to tell you what he bought.

In 1st place there are 2152 votes for marlon wayans.

HOWEVER if people knew how to spell his name right then he would have had these votes as well:

501 votes for:

marlonwayans - What a difference a space makes.


And then his fans cost him these votes because they can't spell:

marlonwayens

marlonwayne

marlonlwaysans

marlnonlwayans

marlowayans

marlonlways

marlonswayans

lonlwayans

marlonlwayanssent

marlonwayanss

marloncwayans

marlonwayayns

marlonlwayayns

marionwayans

marlonlwayynes

marlonwayons


In 4th Place is Paula Poundstone with 846 votes.

If her fans had known how to spell her name she'd have more votes too.

paulappundstone

paulapundstone

paulapoundstine

paulapounstone

paulapountstone

So what have we learned here today? You're reading my blog so the obvious answer is "Not much."

  12. This made me laugh. You only have seven more followers than me. Six if I unfollow you again.

    I just read some supportive words you wrote on someone else's blog.

    Which proves.

    We are both still reading blogs.

    What. The. Hell.
