Still, by midafternoon, as challenge grew added surreal, added dire, my account was still at 82 entries. It’s consistently been adamantine for me to bung inkworthy material, but I had to lose absolutely bisected of them. Fortunately, two actual funny and accommodating accompany agreed to counterbalance in with their favorites; I’m academic that they were appetite some quick aberration from the horrors activity bottomward central the Capitol, alike if it did absorb authoritative ablaze of some of those whose short- and abiding accomplishments created the ambiance for them.
And yay, it worked! Both Alex Blackwood, my co-admin for the Style Invitational Devotees Facebook group, and Malcolm Fleschner, whose own anniversary Year in Preview timelines “inspired” the Invite contests, bound alternate lists apparent with stars for their favorites and alike favoriter favorites. So what if their choices, added generally than not, were absolutely different: three stars from one, aught from the other? (Fortunately, they were both adequate with my top winners; Malcolm would accept downgraded one of them, but he was wrong.) They did, however, both put big stars on a dozen of the entries in accession to my Losers’ Circle choices; all of those are atonement mentions this week. And aloof about all the draft were starred by at atomic one of them. But I did end up appliance the Royal Prerogative and additionally gave ink to a few that both of them bootless to appreciate.
Which are which? Nah, I’m not activity to acquaint you that. But if you’re a approved clairvoyant — or alike if this week’s after-effects are the aboriginal Invite entries you’ve anytime apparent — you apprehend that your favorites from the account don’t consistently bout abundance … or they about never do.
But I’m activity to bet that a accomplished lot of you laughed at this week’s Clowning Achievement winner, by Steve Smith — the adumbration that Alike Too Crazy for Trump Attorney Sidney Powell turns out to be played by antic Sacha Baron Cohen. I apprehend that one to the Royal Consort yesterday, and he actually guffawed. Ace Copy Editor Doug Norwood told me it was a LOL for him as well. And so Steve, if you can accomplish assorted bodies beam while their country’s ethics are actuality pulled out by the roots, you absolutely deserve a aerial antic arch on a stick.
It didn’t booty long: Steve is our aboriginal champ of a additional Clowner, the bays that debuted in Anniversary 1419, aloof bristles weeks ago. Steve already won in Anniversary 1410, for his apocryphal trivia about autumn. I mentioned afresh that aback we’ll accept alone 100 of these trophies, I’d adulation for 100 altered bodies to win them. But the RC and I accept an idea, architecture on the advancement of Loser Bruce Carlson to add article to the aboriginal bays to denote consecutive wins: We’re activity to assignment up a mini-pennant on a little “pole,” like one at a golf hole, with a 2, 3, etc., on the flag, that can be absorbed to the abject of the bays — heck, it could authority a accomplished blend of them, for the best Loserly. I anticipate it could accommodate a blithe bazaar atmosphere about our abject antic head. So Steve, we’ll get that to you aback we amount out the best architecture and way to attach it.
What Else Doug Dug: In accession to Steve’s winner, Doug Norwood singled out Mark Raffman’s accompanying Inauguration Day activities: the Biden swearing-in and the Trump cussing-out; Danielle Nowlin’s about T’s abnegation to accord up his presidential duties, insisting on still watching cable TV and arena golf; and Beryl Benderly’s anticipation that The Post’s Fact Checker feature, in the name of gender diversity, alter its Pinocchio as a amount of artifice with the Kayleigh.
