Scandal As Random Perspective Is Beaten To Award By Better Website - January 27th 2010

The world reeled in shock today as it was announced that leading world news satire website was beaten to first place in the annual Humorfeed award for best satire news story of 2009 by at least ten other better written websites.

“I am in total shock,” editor Ben Dickson informed himself in an interview, “I had somehow convinced myself that the judges would take into account my disability, my dying child and my bribe.”

The worthy winner of the award, Satirical Political, wrote an excellent story parodying the critical issue of the oversized bankers’ boni (see 2010 judging panel, I know you pluralise an ‘-us’ word with an i) using Santa’s lovable elves.

“It is an excellent idea,” Mr Dickson responded when asked for his thoughts, “But let’s remember that Santa’s Elves are loved by everyone world wide – they make kids happy. I don’t think anyone would begrudge them a generous bonus.”

Random Perspective was also beaten to the Editor’s Choice award, the award voted for by the member sites of Humorfeed itself.

“I was bullied at school,” Dickson continued to reveal – appearing to break down in a poorly acted fit of tears and sobbing, “So it is no surprise that I did not win the popular award either. Anyway, I could have got second. It’s not like they revealed a top ten for the popular award is it?”

Bald Ben Dickson
Although not bald, this poorly photoshopped photograph of an unshavened Ben Dickson makes him look like a convict and thus demonstrates how much attention you should pay to his comments.

However, it would seem that Ben Dickson’s reaction to the awards is not representative of the community as a whole. The general reaction to Satirical Political’s victory – as well as 2nd Place The Skunk and 3rd place Confusion Road – has been overwhelmingly positive. Most have acknowledged that given the stories have all be thoroughly looked over by highly regarded figures in the industry that the awards are fair:

“I disagree,” Ben Dickson continued to shout loudly, “I didn’t see myself on the judging panel. I have been doing this website since 2002 so surely that means I am an elder. The fact I haven’t won an award in this time is a disgrace, most people would have won two by default in that time. And probably an Oscar too.”

Regardless of editor Ben Dickson’s tirade of drunken ramblings, Random Perspective would like to extend its congratulations to all entrants of this years competition, and recommends to all of its readers that they check out Humorfeed on a daily basis (despite the incorrect spelling of the word ‘humour’ in its name) – the list of the top ten stories can be viewed here: Best Internet Satire of 2009
