I'm in New York, where Monday the Huffington Post will receive two Webby awards for Best Political Blog. One of the fun quirks of the Webbys is that award winners only get five words for their acceptance speeches. Last year, Al Gore brought the house down with his: "Please don't recount this vote." This obviously can never be matched. (Although I also liked the speech by CNET, which won the People's Voice award for consumer electronics site: "OK, I'll keep this short.")
So what should my five words be as I accept the award Monday night on behalf of our HuffPost team? Here are a few options. Let me know which is your favorite, or offer your own.
"What is this? A Slinky?"
"I'm not Zsa Zsa Gabor."
"You can make a difference."
"Does this come with money?"
"Ann Coulter needs our help."
"Don't tap my phone, George."
"Thank you, you lovely geeks."
"This rule seems really arbitrary."
"See, you don't hate me."
"Brevity is the soul of."
"Heck of a job, Bushies!"
"Heck of a job, GOP!"
"Heck of a job, Webbys."
"The revolution will be blogged!"
"Double-barreled blogging, Cheney-style."
"Intelligence in real time -- wiretap-free."
"He's not the only decider!"
"We blog, therefore we are."
"Afflicting the comfortable, bloggy-style."
"HuffPosters do it bloggy-style."
"Doin' it bloggy-style."
"700 bloggers, one community."
"Powered by outrage, passion, and humor."
"It's good to be pinged."
"We thinks it's the links."
"Here's to blogging without boundaries."
"More popular than Ishtar."
"I'm not in my pajamas."
