1996 Poodle Grande Award!


   In recognition of unparalleled mountains of verbal garbage, and millions of wasted dollars spent promoting nothing more than their own sense of grandiose pomposity, this year's (1966) award goes to the entire United States Government. Never have so few done so little at such great expense! Yes, we can finally see that the emperor indeed is naked. Our government has failed to clothe it's inflated sense of self importance with actual deeds. Nothing at all has been accomplished, and it has been done with such pomp and circumstance that, indeed, most of the actual participants seem to be convinced that they were doing something useful for the country. So, to both parties, and especially to the two men who waged such a long and difficult camapaign about nothing, we present the 1996 Poodle Grande Award! Conragtulations.
