The 2007 Humdinger Award Short List

Time’s up. Thanks to everyone who participated in nominating 2007’s funniest post on About now, I should say something about how hard it was to choose from all the great posts. But that would be a lie. I just threw some darts. It only took a couple minutes.

The finalists, in no particular order:

DTPMMALF – I missed this one originally. The contest was worth the trouble, based solely on this find.

The Bubble Gum Interviews – Yeah, it’s a lot of reading, but very funny.

The honer is all mine! – Kris has many funny posts, but this one is still my favorite.

Ten Marketing Tips You Can Learn From A Prostitute – Thanks to this post, I know that coughing Diet Pepsi back up through your nose is unpleasant

Business Goals – I could fill the short list from The Weenie alone.

Top 5 Reasons Why You Wouldn’t Hire a Penguin as Your Next Realtor® – It sucks enough that I’m not the funniest blogger on It’s worse to know I’m not the funniest blogger in Colorado.

Please Don’t Destroy My American Dream – “I was surprised to learn that my lack of a full-time “paying job” was no barrier”. Leave it to someone from outside to cover the subprime debacle better than any of us did. Classic.

Mademoiselle? Oui. La Spinster?…ZUT! – Oh, to be a fly on the wall.

What I’ve Learned in Two Weeks of Real Estate Brokers Classes – Funny because it’s what inevitably happens to me every time I pay for training.

WordPressing their widgets into your Facebooks! – Not nominated, but deserving. No matter how bittersweet it is. RIP Aaron.

Your judges are:

Nicole Nicolay, Dan Green, and Chris Lengquist

The rules.

Each judge will rank them one through ten. 1 point for the funniest, 10 points for the blogger we’ll laugh at, not with. 😉 Lowest combined score wins. Each judge needs to provide their ranking to me by the end of Dec 30. Non-judges are welcome to post their own rankings, or number-ones, or complaints that they didn’t make the cut.

The winner will be announced in the first minute of 2008, in the most important time zone on Earth. Mountain. I’ll use the badge above to link the funniest post for one full year on, and for all of eternity here on RBF. The winner will be welcome to display it as well.

    I was going to cast my vote today. But after reading Kris’ comment I’ll wait till tomorrow afternoon for FedEx to come in.

    But it better not be a bluff like Lani. She promised cash but I’ve received zip. So she’s gone from 1st to 21st in a heartbeat.

    Okay….I’m not REVEALING any names…but some of you are compaigning like you’re on Survivor!

    Way to go! I like your style and I accept cash or Nordstrom gift cards.

    Seriously though, Todd made us sign a contract stating all bribes go directly to him.

    With 2/3rds of the votes in, Lani will have quite a collection. I suggest bribes over threats to your fellow hound.
