The Truth about Goats
As an annual award, Flibbertigibbet salutes the one individual who has provided the most comedic material for satirical news in the last year. We’ve had many excellent candidates from around the world; with a vast array of howlers, incompetence and corruption. So without further ado, in reverse order…
IN THIRD PLACE: Miley Cyrus – Hannah Montana’s alter ego has forced dictionaries to embrace a new verb – Twerk. ‘He Twerks, She Twerks, They get arrested…’
IN SECOND PLACE: Michael Gove – A minor politician, situated on an obscure island off the coast of Europe has consistently hit the headlines with his concerted attempt to be remembered as the greatest threat to children since the cast of Operation Yewtree.
AND THE WINNER FOR 2013…is: Edward Snowden – While not a particularly mirthful character, it has been the side effects of his actions which have opened the comedy flood gates. US & UK Intelligence Agencies have been cast in the most Machiavellian, Orwellian & Arsehollian way possible. Mr. Snowden has struck a blow for personal freedom but more importantly helped us to laugh at those in power.
Have a Happy New Year & Thank you for supporting Flibbertigibbet!
I’m sure 2014 will be just as silly
