A New Post!

This post should be read to the tune of "I Want a New Drug" by Huey Lewis and The News, or he'll scratch your eyes out!

I need a new post
One that won't be too long
One that makes people laugh out loud
Or that reads as if it's a song

I need a new post
One that knows when to quit
One that won't take up all your time
Or that showcases my sharp wit

One where I can say thank you
For awards I've won
Thanks to Ces and Anony for thinking of me
For Creativity

I need a new post
One to pass it along
One to drop some blogger's names
Or 'cause the last one's been up too long

I need a new post
One for having some fun
One that pays off all my bills
Or lets me lay out in the sun

Oh...I'm tired don't make me do the last one. Well, now you'll have that song stuck in your head not only for the rest of the day, but every time you think about how you need a new post! Ha! Gotcha! You may have ascertained from my brilliant lyrics, that I have been given an award. One award from two awesome bloggers!
It is a Pico award, in the name of spirit, fun and laughter. I would like to present this award to three men who never fail to make me laugh, with their blogs and their comments, Jonah of Gefilte Fish Blues, perhaps the funniest, and most polished writer I've read in blog-land thus far. Ben of No Ordinary Roller Coaster, who hits the mark every time humor is his goal, and last but not least, a guy who's only in it for the laughs, Ve of Ve's Fantastical Nonsense. Congratulations guys, and thanks for all the laughs!


Ben said...

That's so nice! Thank you so much. Also, thanks for mentioning that I'm funny every time I want to be rather than just fun to laugh at regardless. Crucial clarification

RED MOJO said...

ben, I know! I have the opposite affliction, trying to be funny but no one knows it! You're welcome!

VE said...

Hey, that's really nice of you. I appreciate the recognition. It's been fun having you at the blog commenting (your now #3!) and vice versa.

HEY, I was FIRST giving you the hideously tacky award! Your poem did make me "laugh out loud though", in the spirit of funa nd laughter :) Congratulations Red Mojo on your hilarious creativity ;)

FUN AND Laughter!

RED MOJO said...

ve, You're welcome and thank you!

Anony, sorry, but that's the way it fit into the music. I know I got yours first, I'll make sure that's reflected in the sidebar when I post the award in my blog-bling section!
Fun & Laughter! Thanks tweety!

Ces said...

Excuse me, I was the first one to say it was hideous and tacky, so I get first billing. That's a really old song. You must have been in grade school?

Debra Kay said...

She can't sleep
She can't eat
No doubt, she's in deep

You'll like to think you're immune to the stuff.....No doubt about it she's addicted to blogs.....


Jonah K. Haslap said...

Oh my god, this is so sudden! I have so many people I'd like to thank. First and foremost, I'd like to thank my therapist, who has completely failed to help me do anything besides meet my $500 deductible. And then of course I'd like to thank my parents, without whom the therapist would not be necessary. Finally, I'd like to thank my slowly receding hairline, which has given me a fantastic reason to isolate myself from general society and entertain you all as a result.

Is this statue made of chocolate? Because I've been searching for a diabetes trigger.

RED MOJO said...

ces, yes you were the first to say that! And I think I was a little older, but thank you.

debra kay, My name is red mojo, and I'm a blog addict.

Jonah, Holy Crap, If I hads an award for the funniest comment ever, you'd be writing another acceptance speech!

Quickroute said...

Congrats on your award - and for giving me some new blogs to check out!

RED MOJO said...

quickroute, thank you, I love seeing your green face here!

Congratulations on winning more well-deserved kudos, Mojo. And your choices are all excellent.

I have become a shameless groupie of Jonah, who is a fantastic writer. I trudge over there several times a day, jonesing for a few new paragraphs to scratch the itch. (Or would that be "jonahsing?)

tsduff said...

I didn't know you were so good at songwriting... and you even sang it to my favorite tune :)

RED MOJO said...

heartinsanfrancisco, Thank you, and I know what you mean about Jonah. His words are like Saltines to a starving man, or something like that.

tsduff, Thank you, I did it especially for you, or I had no idea, whichever you prefer.

Hmm...just making sure my Google Reader is still working.

RED MOJO said...

charlotta-love, I know, I've been busy. Ohmigod, i have to come up with something soon!

citizen of the world said...

Congratualations. But I can't believe I was away from log checking for a week and this was the only post I missed!

RED MOJO said...

Cit, I know, I've been naughty, and not keeping up with my blogs. That's terrible.

tsduff said...

Harrible, simply harrible...

Hope all is well with you. Ice gone from the driveway? YAY.
