    With the consent of the legendary FMF, I hereby proudly present the RHP Debates Flaming Tomato Awards 2011 thread.

    Conceive an award. Award it. Acceptence speeches. Declination speeches. If it degenerates, so be it.

    The Atlas Shrugged award for consistent full throated defense of free market capitalism even in the face of relentless criticism from No1marauder goes to normbenign. Ayn would be proud, even if Uncle Milty and Bill Kristol would perhaps want to reign in a bit of the excess.

    The Gerry Adams award for a slow but steady decrease in fiery rhetoric and merciless mockery goes to no1marauder. Though he may consider Gerry Adams am imperialist tool and a sellout, he perhaps has more in common with the IRA leader than either would care to admit.

    Gee, thanks.

    Care to elaborate?

    Edit: Oh, I get it. As in Freakonomics.

    That I like Freakonomics makes me a "Freak."

    Oh, okay.


    Ha.


    Ha.


    Ha.

    I hereby present the Internationalist Stalwart award to shavixmir, for consistently venting his frustrations with the abundance of exclusively American threads in the forum, while simultaneously being a forceful and fearless European voice in discussions. His contributions to the diversity and general dynamics of the forum are duly noted.

    I touched it up a little for you to make it sound a wee bit more acceptable. Happy?

    The Manna From Heaven award goes to KazetNagorra for his academic work on the astonishing theory that everything can be provided for everyone without anyone working (unless the want to).

    And the Noble Savage award goes to no1marauder for successfully grounding the vast majority of his debating positions firmly on the rights found (naturally) among paleolithic hunter-gatherer groups.

    We are also happen to announce the Twitteroid award to FMF for keeping most of his posts to less than 140 characters.

    (NB. The awards committee claims no accurate notion of where FMF is when he posts...)

    Thank you. Thank you.

    Really. I... I... I'm speachless.
    There's a list of people I need to thank, without which this wouldn't have been able to happen.
    However, I wrapped the list in the Stars and Stripes, set it alight in front of the US embassy whilst dressed in a dildo costume and head towel; shouting: "YOU ARE WHAT YOU SEE! YOU ARE WHAT YOU SEE!"

    X number of Forum bans played their part; you can't fight the Man on RHP no matter how silly or arbitrary the rulings are.
