Seasons Beatings!

It's been about a month since I first gave out my "Tanned Hide" award and, in the season's spirit of giving I've decided to give out a few more.

I'll keep this one short and sweet because I didn't get a wink of sleep last night. Since exams are over and I shouldn't have an excuse for not sleeping, I guess I should explain:

It started with a phone call from Mrs. C who called me from work last night. The conversation ended with her saying these words:

"I don't care what you have to take. Coffee, energy drink, whatever. I need you tonight. All night!"

What followed her getting home took place in every room of the apartment. We did every possible thing imaginable. We swept, dusted, changed the curtains and bed sheets, polished the furniture. We even baked the ham...*


Oh, you thought...


* In case you're wondering, no, none of these are code for anything else.

Anyway, now that I've got your attention, on to some award giving:

Once again:

As I mentioned when this award was first given out, the "Tanned Hide" goes to bloggers who hold a mirror up to society and its members who may have somewhat gone astray and often smash them over the head with it provide insight as to how those situations should be properly handled. - I just love how that sounds.

This time I've chosen three recipients who get to take the happy couple above home:

Peter V of Triton Cove - Like me, he's tired of the materialistic BS the media - and their snotty-nosed little mascots - try to shove down our throats.

The Didactic Pirate - Scourge of the high seas & bratty college students. Up until some recent redecorating his motto used to be "The beatings will continue until morale improves, or I get tired." Nuff said.

Nubian - Her blog's private but, without a doubt, she doles out well deserved punishment with true elegance. And she doesn't even spill a single drop of wine in the process.

Like before, this award is rule free and the recipients are free to pass it on to those who know have been handing out the ass whoopin' without fear of favor.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a nice coma to slip into.



  1. What a great Christmas gift! Thanks Vinny.

    As long as the Kardashitwits and Booty Pop Panties are out there, I will continue to blog. Can't wait for Sarah Palin to become President, the mind boggles on what I can blog about then!

    Merry Christmas to you and the Mrs.

  2. Shucks, Mr. C. I appreciate it. I'll display this award with pride.

    I'm glad your exams are done, and you're alive to tell the tale.

    And don't lie -- at least one of those items you listed above HAS to be a euphemism. I think "dusting the furniture" is a winner.

    Merry Christmas to you, my friend.

  3. It is so nice to come over on Christmas day and see the picture of a well-deserved spanking. :-)

    Congratulations to the awardees and hope you all are enjoying a very nice long weekend.

  4. @ Nubian: Your welcome.

    Hmmm. Palin for prez? If that were to happen the blogosphere might explode.

    @Di-Pi: Barely alive. That along with the house work and I slept halfway into Christmas day.

    @subWOW: I think the happy couple in the picture got the best Christmas gift of all.

  5. Sadly...I found all of the cleaning talk just as exciting as the inuendo. I definitely need to start prioritizing.

  6. @ Nari: And, sadly, I know exactly what you mean. When we were done & we sat & looked around at our sparkly-clean apartment, we felt exhausted & satiated at the same time.

  7. Congrats to the winners! I am with Nari - The cleaning talk was hot! I am worried that is saying too much about the sad state of my house right now!


Go ahead, say it! You know you want to:
