As rumored in urban legend and oral folklore, there exists a special Something Awful forum populated entirely by moderators and administrators. These gatekeepers and guardians ennoble this space with eloquent orations about important Internet Issues. Except me, I use it to make posts that are too vulgar for public discourse! Anyway, T. Fine took a break from all the portentous discussions and unfathomable debauchery to share this light-hearted anecdote:

Now, sometimes the general readership doesn't really care about forums happenings, so just think of this as an embarrassing work story, relatable to all! Plus, why was he dragging his avatar across the screen? What a mystery! As cool-mod het narrated, "where's eggy going to go now? how about the mathemagical land of excel? *drags to spreadsheet*" Then Gravy Jones posed the obvious follow-up question to the SA Goons: Where's Eggy going next?
"Return what you have stolen from me!"

He had a yellow inflatable tube around his waist, the kind with a comical duck head. There was a tiny fish in one of his hands, and a trident in the other. In the background a squirrel wearing shades was water skiing.
For fans of meaningless awards, these awards are extra meaningless.
