Two new nominations today:
Best One-Panel Comic Strip: Hands down, Toothpaste for Dinner, which should be in every newspaper and on every computer in the world. This is the most ridiculous, funny, postmodern, surreal comic ever, and Drew deserves a Nobel Prize In Comics. Almost everyone of them is funny, and he has repeat characters like Bigfoot, and they range from the seriously obscure (If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate) to the perfectly sublime, including my favorite comic ever and the best of Toothpaste:
Best Celebrity Who Would Not Be Famous If Not For the Internet: In a celebration of solidarity with a guy who I probably would have been if the opportunity had been there, I wear a sweatshirt featuring his logo all the time. I'm talking, of course, about Star Wars Kid, who is probably sick of the attention by now but should not be.
He not only made himself famous, he helped popularize the era of movie mashups, and actually got his storyline worked into Arrested Development. Plus, I looked kind of like him in high school. The original Star Wars (Now Number IV: A New Hope) had a slogan (probably in the comic book) of "They were in the wrong place at the right time. Naturally they became heroes." That's Star Wars Kid for you. I hope he's not embarrassed about this, because he shouldn't be.
