  1. Darling eccles, does that mean I gets a lobster too? Xx Jess

  2. I vote that Brother Lappin's Pligrimage should not be listed on account of its totally boring fixation with the tedious lives of four donkeys whose only claim to fame is the enormous expense for the food that the fat little layabouts eat, the noise inflicted on the rabit's neighbours through ill-considered early morning braying and the outrageous damage they inflict on the ozone layer through methane emissions. The last thing we needs is a lobster of approval for this sort of nonsense.

  3. Well, after this award Eccles,

  4. Can I recommend the well regarded blog "Bite Me" for the last spot.

    It is the hole writing of St. Bosco

  5. Perhaps poor Damian needs a lobster award, now that his hits are badly down.

    Or Richard Dawkins, expert on the shellfish gene.

    1. As both these gentlemen are rather prickly, perhaps they would prefer a sea urchin.

    subjudice it is
