Springfield, MO—With noticeably heightened security, Monday evening’s nearly perfect Blogaroni award ceremony was marred when a local sock monkey, Silly Willy, staged a silent protest to call attention to the “total disregard shown all imaginary blog writers” at this year’s event.
Willy, a well known downtown sock monkey and suspected blogger, was clearly miffed by the shut-out he and all other pseudo bloggers suffered. “We didn’t even rate a nomination, or an honorable mention for Chrissake!”
Chad Harris with Fair City News swept 4 categories at the ceremony prompting the irate sock monkey to become increasingly visceral in his silence. Revelers noticed early in the evening that the monkey had turned quietly morose as Half Past Awesome’s Uli Gulje captured two of the coveted box of Nerds and the suitable-for-framing certificates.
Sock supporters tell FCN Willy knew the “fix was in” when Blogaroni organizers announced Harris and Gulje were picked to emcee the awards. In an apparent attempt to smooth over the shaken monkey’s feelings, both men were later seen hugging the monkey and offering to buy him a plate of consolation Patton Alley waffle fries.
He reportedly declined saying, “He was already stuffed.” In a prepared statement, the Blogaroni selection committee promised to investigate the alleged slight saying, “It’s true we are a tight-knit family of bloggers but we all have big hearts and welcome all the Silly Willy’s out there to join us.”
