Pharyngula

An on-time Molly!

I’ve so late in tallying up the Molly nominations lately, that I thought for a change I’d get the March Molly award done on time, and a little early even.

This one was easy: it was a landslide for Josh, Official SpokesGay. Every blog should have an official SpokesGay.

Now, start nominatin’ for the April Molly by leaving a comment here.

    Nice one, Josh. Well deserved.
    I think Molly winners should get an extra perk and be (the only people) allowed to post pics for their month of fame.

  2. #2 David Marjanovi?
    April 30, 2010

    Caine, Fleur du Mal for both the quality and the quantity.

    Cerberus for the quality in sufficient quantity.

    And how exactly is it possible that a_ray_in_dilbert_space still hasn’t got one? Does he always tunnel through the jaws of victory, or something?

  3. #3 Carlie
    April 30, 2010

    Yea Josh! I’ll buy you a beer if we ever end up in the same state.

    Also going with Caine and Cerberus this month.

  4. #4 Naked Bunny with a Whip
    April 30, 2010

    I would have volunteered to be the official spokesgay, but I’m not gay, nor do I have spokes.

    Congrats, Josh.

  5. #5 MadScientist

    Congratulations Josh!

    For those of you unsure if your nominee already has a Molly, please check here.

    Congratulations to Josh, our SpokesGay.

    This month I’ll nominate A_Ray_In_Dilbert_Space, who always has cogent comments, and who I consider long overdue. And Caine, Fleur du Mal, who lives up to her moniker by skewering the illogical posters.

  7. #7 aratina cage
    April 30, 2010

    I salute you, Official SpokesGay, as part of the Collective! Mega-congratulations!!

    For April, I nominate:

    cicely because this comment was just too funny.

    KOPD for really turning it around on YECs.

    Hypatia’s Daughter because of this insightful perspective on the reason a creator is mentioned at all in the Declaration of Independence.

  8. #8 Aquaria
    April 30, 2010

    Congrats JoshOSG.

    I nominate a ray in dilbert space. Again.

  9. #9 Alan B
    April 30, 2010

    Congratulations to King Josh II! (aka JoshOSG).

    Nomination? Several come to mind but a ray in dilbert space must be up there.

  10. #10 Celtic_Evolution
    April 30, 2010

    Huzzah! Congrats Josh, OSG!

    For April Molly I cast my vote for Caine, Fleur du Mal. Always an enjoyable read…

  11. #11 nigelTheBold
    April 30, 2010

    Congrats Josh! Well deserved.

    I go KOPD, for general all-around solid posts.

  12. #12 echidna
    April 30, 2010

    Congrats Josh OSG’OM – If we add an extra H we could get an anagram of OM’GOSH.

    Well done anyway.

  13. #13 Bill Dauphin, OM
    April 30, 2010

    Justice is servied!! Congrats, Josh OSG-OM.

    My noms for this cycle are…

    Cerberus

    Caine

    a_r_i_d_s

    (PS to Ol’Greg: You’re in the on-deck circle!)

  14. #14 Zeno
    April 30, 2010

    Congratulations to the Official SpokesGay! I am relieved that at last we have an authoritative source for information on the latest items in the “gay agenda” that we keep hearing so much about.

    Good work, Josh!

  15. #15 articulett
    April 30, 2010

    Hurray! Hurray! for my favorite SpokesGay!

    Josh is always worth reading– Congratulations on a well deserved award, Josh.

  16. #16 Katrina
    April 30, 2010

    Congratulations, JoshOSGOM!

    I also nominate Caine.

  17. #17 Sastra
    April 30, 2010

    Aha! Josh is now OFFICIALLY a spokesgay. So I’m not sure if Josh, Official SpokesGay OM will be sufficient. It might have to be Josh, Official Official SpokesGay, OM.

    Congrats to Josh.

    This month I see I made special note of 2:

    Gregory Greenwood
    tsg

    Both have a history of insightful commentary, and I always look forward to reading their posts.

  18. #18 Kieranfoy
    April 30, 2010

    I’m going to nominate Caine… just because I don’t want to get eaten.

    Malkav save me, I don’t wanna get eaten!

  19. #19 cicely
    April 30, 2010

    Congrats to our now-offical SpokesGay! My picks for NewMolly would be Caine, FdM and KOPD.

    Re: aratina cage @ #7: *bow* We aim to please, if not to hit. Or at the very least, not to disgust. ;)

  20. #20 Bill Dauphin, OM
    April 30, 2010

    cicely (@19) & aratina cage (@7):

    New Shimmer always wins!

    “Mmmm, tastes terrific… and just look at that shine!”

  21. #21 Dianne
    April 30, 2010

    About time Josh OSG became Josh OSG, OM.

    For this month…so many choices…apart from Caine, KOPD, a_ray_in_dilbert, what about David Marjanovic? He seems overdue.

  22. #22 Walton
    April 30, 2010

    My vote goes to Ol’Greg, for a second month running.

  23. #23 theshortearedowl
    April 30, 2010

    Cerberus. All the way.

  24. #24 Sili, The Unknown Virgin
    April 30, 2010

    badgersdaughter
    She’s hardly the only one deserving in that thread, but I eventually gave up following it.

    We have seen evil, and it is us:
    JeffreyD
    Jarred C.
    Cerberus
    (I’m sure I’m forgetting someone. That’s what I get for not remembering making those notes.)

  25. #25 Sili, The Unknown Virgin
    April 30, 2010

    Congrats to his Joshness, of course!

  26. #26 Nerd of Redhead, OM
    April 30, 2010

    David Marjanovic? He seems overdue.

    Nope, had his since 9/07. I think his tentacle cluster collection is getting close to his weight too…

  27. #27 Kaessa
    April 30, 2010

    Congrats, Josh!

  28. #28 MATTIR
    April 30, 2010

    I vote for Caine

  29. #29 KOPD
    April 30, 2010

    Josh OSG, Congrats!!

    My OMNom this month goes to a_ray_in_dilbert_space.

  30. #30 Sastra
    April 30, 2010

    Oh, crud. I voted before I read the other suggestions (so I would not be influenced), and of course I see the wisdom of Ray-in-dilbert-space and Ol’Greg. So add em in, and now I will not look back at the thread, lest I find myself voting yet again.

  31. #31 OurDeadSelves
    April 30, 2010

    Yay, Josh!

    I vote for either Caine or a-ray-in-dilbert-space both are excellent commenters.

  32. #32 Dianne
    April 30, 2010

    @26: Ah, I see. The modest OM does not use his title.

    In that case, I second or third or fourth Ol’Greg. Though I also think Naked Bunny with a Whip and Sili, the Unknown Virgin deserve Mollies for the nyms alone. (Would Sili then be the unknown molly?)

  33. #33 Sili, The Unknown Virgin
    April 30, 2010

    I can’t take credit for the ‘nym. I think it was Jadehawk that insisted someone use it after a drive-by troll accused us all of being 35-year-old virgin geeks.

  34. #34 Lets Get Surgical
    April 30, 2010

    Congrats, Josh. Well deserved.

    Celtic_Evolution
    Caine

    get my vote, for never failing to liven up a thread.

  35. #35 Pareidolius
    April 30, 2010

    Congratulations J,OSG!

    Your tireless promotion of the directives of the Illuminated Intergalactic Gay Agenda Council pleases us greatly. You shall receive your limited edition IIGAC Braun? toaster oven and commemorative Princess Diana “Daughters of the Illuminati” tea set from Franklin Mint forthwith.

    I say the next OM goes to that bad flower, Caine.

  36. #36 somewhereingreece
    April 30, 2010

    Congratulations Josh! :-D

    I nominate Caine, Fleur du Mal, Ol’Greg and Cerberus

  37. #37 Shala
    April 30, 2010

    Caine!

  38. #38 Nerd of Redhead, OM
    April 30, 2010

    a drive-by troll accused us all of being 35-year-old virgin geeks.

    That was SlantedScience, and the twit is still posting.

  39. #39 SaintStephen
    April 30, 2010

    Surely shouting is allowed on these august occasions:

    Congratulations Josh !!!

    Oh, and there’s more.

    You, Sir, have vast intelligence and an unerring sense of fair play. It literally drips from your every post. Too bad Lamarckism isn’t true, because my children (the ones I knew about) would no doubt be better human beings due to my absorption of your sage wisdom.

    Most of all, thank you for making me feel welcome on Pharyngula. You have my sincere gratitude.

  40. #40 Ol'Greg
    April 30, 2010

    Cerebrus. Again. And Caine. Again.

    Walton, I’m holding out for you because you keep getting cooler by the month and I’d hate to interrupt the trajectory.

  41. #41 MrFire
    April 30, 2010

    Well done Spokesgay!

    I would like to vote for Celtic_Evolution and a_ray_in_dilbert_space, who are both overdue.

    But there are so many others on the list.

  42. #42 SaintStephen
    April 30, 2010

    (1) Caine

    (2) a_ray_in_dilbert_space

    (3) Celtic_Evolution

    (4) Walton

    (5) Ol’Greg

  43. #43 Josh, Official SpokesGay
    April 30, 2010

    I would like to thank the Baby Jesus, without whose non-existence none of this would be possible, also. . .

    Srsly, thanks guys, it’s flattering. Especially to Par, #35 – you may send the toaster to Ghey Inc., Box 69, Sodom, 12345.

    For this month’s Molly – there are always too many deserving commenters! In no particular order (because I wuv you all):

    Caine, Fleur de Mal

    a_ray_in_dilbert_space

    Cerberus

    Ol’Greg (but only if she plays her love games with me)

    Celtic Evolution

  44. #44 boygenius
    April 30, 2010

    Congratulations, Josh, OSG, OM!!1!

    I’ll echo St. Stephen in saying that your sense of fair play nearly jumps off the page in your comments. Not to mention your snark.

    For April:

    Caine

    a_ray

  45. #45 Jadehawk, OM
    April 30, 2010

    congrats Josh OSG, OM :-D

    I am determined to nominate Cerberus and a_ray_in_dilbert_space every month until they get their mollies.

  46. #46 Cerberus
    April 30, 2010

    Yay, congratulations Josh, we are all gay men now…

    By mandate*.

    Damn gay agenda.

    My nominations:

    Caine, fleur du mal
    Ol’Greg

    *Or was that man date?

  47. #47 'Tis Himself, OM
    April 30, 2010

    A Molly thread? Is it May 20th already? I’m sure I lost a week or three somewhere and I haven’t been drinking or drugging. Must be senility.

    Anyway, congratulations to Josh OSG OM. Well done, sir.

    I’ll go with the flow this time to vote for a_ray_in_dilbert_space and Caine.

  48. #48 Caine, Fleur du mal
    April 30, 2010

    Congratulations, Josh, Official SpokesGay OM! It’s about time, and well deserved!

    My April nominees:

    Celtic_Evolution and JeffreyD.

  49. #49 Caine, Fleur du mal
    April 30, 2010

    Kieranfoy:

    I’m going to nominate Caine… just because I don’t want to get eaten.

    You’re safe. For now.

    ;)

    Hurrah for Josh, Official Gay Spokes OM!
    No, wait.
    Hurrah for OSHKOSH by Josh, Officially Gay!

    Erm.

    Hurrah!

    Well done, Josh OSG, OM. Although I often sit quietly on the periphery of the Pharyngula bullring when there’s a troll-smacking occurring, I love your comments.

  51. #51 AnthonyK
    April 30, 2010

    Well done Josh, well deserved.
    I’ll go for Celtic_Evolution and Caine Evil Flower, most entertaining – amongst many others.

  52. #52 Kieranfoy
    April 30, 2010

    @Caine: Oh, good…

    I think.

  53. #53 Rutee, Shrieking Harpy of Dooooom

    Caine or A Ray in Dilbert Space

  54. #54 Dust
    April 30, 2010

    Yay! Yay! Josh the SpokesGay,
    got himself a Molly today!

    Now it’s time for Celtic_Evolution to receive his Molly!

  55. #55 Smoggy Batzrubble OM4Jesus

    Dear Brother Josh,

    Congratulations on your well deserved Mollification. Make sure you make the most of it! In the immediate aftermath of my Mollification I found that a lot more people wanted to have sex with me. Now I regret the missed opportunities — both Rielle Hunter and Tiger Woods sent me a texts but I was a bit tied up.

    Speaking of sex, my Christian beliefs require me to condemn you for your immoral lifestyle. Is there any chance you could get down here to Noo Zillund for this? My friend Floyd Rubber would like to condemn you as well, and his condemnation is a damn site bigger than mine. We could even have a mutual condemnatory threesome if you were feeling open to the spirit. Or, if you bring some buddies, we could have a week-long condemnatory orgy! I’ve got a drum full of christian lube and a thousand rosaries worth of anal beads.

    Yours in prayer for your buff and stylishly dressed soul

    Smoggy

    PS And a vote for the sensational arranged-in-dildo-space

  56. #56 John Morales
    April 30, 2010

    Good on ya, Josh OSG.
    I offer you a firm and manly handshake. :)

    Since I’m a slacker who’s not kept track of specific comments, I’ll go with Cerberus, who I consider posts heavy-duty and substantive comments. A relative newcomer, but mighty impressive to me.

    a_ray_in_dilbert_space is very definitely up there, really solid on the math and science aspects and interesting all-round (and is probably overdue!).

    As usual, I’ll state that I endorse the other, above-mentioned nominees — I just don’t want to dilute my vote too much.

    Finally, I urge lurkers to consider making the Molly posts a special occasion and have a say.

  57. #57 Kel, OM
    April 30, 2010

    Well done Josh.

    This month (and every month until he gets one) A_Ray_In_Dilbert_Space

  58. #58 Josh, Official SpokesGay
    April 30, 2010

    @Smoggy:

    Speaking of sex, my Christian beliefs require me to condemn you for your immoral lifestyle.

    When may I present myself for proper chastisement?

    My friend Floyd Rubber would like to condemn you as well, and his condemnation is a damn site bigger than mine. We could even have a mutual condemnatory threesome if you were feeling open to the spirit.

    Giggity! The thought of throwing hot, mean-spirited words of insult and scorn with the three of you is just. . well. . . guh-guh-guh-guh-guh. . .

    I’ve got a drum full of christian lube

    I see your drum and raise you a 55-gallon barrel of Crisco.

  59. #59 Haley
    April 30, 2010

    I vote for

    Ol’Greg

    A_Ray_In_Dilbert_Space

    Congrats, Josh! You are well deserving.

    April 30, 2010

    Stopping in for a quick comment. (I really do not like to use my blackberry to compose messages. I also do not tweet and do not use SMS much. AND GET OFF MY LAWN!)

    Congratulations to my fake hubby, Josh. You have finally joined Lynna and me in sharing this award. (I forgot, is Carlie also one of the sister-wives? If not, she should be.) There just might be something extra special the next time we share our faux bed. Are you ready to be pegged?

    As for my votes, I have to give one to an other of my sister-wives, Caine. And because I am rather surprised he does not yet have one, (He has been around at least as long as I have.) a_ray_in_dilbert_space.

    My apologies to all of the other fine people who populate this blog.

  62. #62 Pygmy Loris
    May 1, 2010

    Congrats Josh!

    I haven’t been following much this month, so I’m going back to my list of people I need to vote for.

    Caine and Ol’Greg are at the top, so votes for both!

  63. #63 Feynmaniac, Chimerical Toad
    May 1, 2010

    Congrats SpokesGay!

    I nominate a_ray_in_dilbert_space and negentropyeater.

    Congratulations, Josh, OSG, OM!

    My vote for this month goes to Cerberus.

  66. #66 Carlie
    May 1, 2010

    I forgot, is Carlie also one of the sister-wives?

    I’m number three, which means that I’m always too busy scrubbing down the bathrooms and doing the laundry to be noticed. :)

  67. #67 'Tis Himself, OM
    May 1, 2010

    I’m always too busy scrubbing down the bathrooms

    That’s the faux sex, I take it.

  68. #68 OurDeadSelves
    May 1, 2010

    I’m a badbad person.

    While I totally stand behind my other Molly noms*, it would be a huge shame to not recognize Cerberus for all of her awesome posts!

    *Om nom nom!

    Congratualtions, Josh OSG,OM!

    May 1, 2010

    whoa, I got a Molly nom…. no way. Cool. Thanks, Sili. I post erratically and not often enough though, I think.

    Congrats Josh, can’t think of a better human. I can think of some just as good, though, heh…

    A Ray in Dilbert Space for consistently being above and beyond the call of duty.

    negentropyeater for… for… aplomb.

    Walton can finally be awarded the Most Improved Player trophy, for impressive gains that he has kept and improved further upon.

    And Cerberus for showing the rest of us how to not to take shit off anyone, with style and passion.

  72. #72 Kieranfoy
    May 2, 2010

    Wow… sex due to Mollification?

    I gotta get one of these.

    Hey, everyone! Vote for me, and I’ll give you a groat!

  73. #73 jefrir
    May 2, 2010
