In honour of the Great Cnut, the Danish king who showed his acolytes how wrong a bunch of slimey, tide-turners can be, I announce a new award for the most deserving personality of the week, each and every week.
In recognition of cooperation found universally, the Foundation of Universal Cooperation, (FUC) has pledged to donate a prize to the winner of a weekly poll decided by my bloggers.
Each winner of the week is entitled to claim a signed photocopy of the King Cnut medal illustrated, which will be dispatched as soon as I receive a registered postal address and proof of identity.
Nominations should be submitted by Friday each week, and be judged by the number of likes received by the following Friday.
Without nomination, or consultation, and as a preliminary exercise, this week’s Foundation of Universal Cooperation (FUC) prize has been awarded to Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame for this little faux pas, and immediate climbdown: Top Gear in a spin: Jeremy Clarkson insults ‘convict’ Australians. To my immense pleasure, I crown Jeremy Clarkson FUC King Cnut of the week. Congratulations, Jeremy! You deserve it. Please send your address and proof of identity to receive your prize.
Now the big question is: who will be next week’s FUC King Cnut? There are plenty around, so get your nominations in early.
