For calm under fire and bravery in the face of overwhelming odds.
Stood by his Governor and never flinched.
The right (no pun intended, well maybe just a little..) stuff.

Hear hear, Sean, well said,I'll second the nomination.

11-29-2008, 01:04 AM
We have almost 80 views and only two nominations from you gents.:eek: :(

Now, that's ratty....:rolleyes:

So we have two rats nominated. Let's play... keep them coming please.


11-29-2008, 03:20 AM
So far we've had two nominations... Now we have three.

Larry, Boylesboats :)

...because he is all around good guy. Friendly, likable, compassionate and kind. He also stand's his ground when pushed...

Shall I pick seven more from the list...:eek:

I think we should consider some of the guys who left the bilge when they thought it was sinking...

Spinner, careful you don't bring too much refinement to this miserable dishonor.
For instance, the qualifiers you raise for the Boylesboat nomination might work in a beauty pagent but for a rat?
Some stinkin slime must be considered.

I'll nominate the good Reverend - Memphis Mike.

Few members combine snarkiness and frivolity well enough to consistently produce jocularity as well as he....

I second Botebum's nomination......Mostly because he'll be ruling in exile! :D

I think Norman deserves nomination if for no other reason than the size of the communion post that he did. Mind you, most of the bulk can attributed to nut cases.

(nut cases need scratching too...)

Botebum sounds good to me . He should get a little reward for his undeserved time on Exile Island

11-29-2008, 09:32 AM
I'll second Mr Know it All, a rat in all but stature. Stature can be anagrammed into "suet rat".

11-29-2008, 09:58 AM
So we have nominations for:

2. Botebum
3. MemphisMike
4. Norman
5. Boylesboats
6. BrianW
7. Chris Coose (because his statement above showed his ratty side)
10. Other

Got room for two more. I'm surprised no Rattes have been nominated.

Gotta run. Will be back in few hours and get the poll thing started and I'll see if I can grab the camera and take some photo's of the contestants...

So, until then, -two more candidates. :D

here's an idea:

the rat of the month should get some reward like...being able to post his own sticky for his/her term in office. Think Scot will go along with the idea...he could "approve" the sticky first...

his own bully pulpit...like Number 10 Downing street or the White House...or the addy of his country's "leader"

what do ya think? (maybe we'll learn something...) (If Brian W wins he can post his leader's addy...number one, Flat, Alaska

11-29-2008, 10:14 AM
ON THE OTHER HAND...... Perhaps the RAT who messed with the PUB numbers should be elected, AND sent to exile island!

I was inclined to wait until next month to push for Botebum as BROTM, he'll be back from exile by then. But he is very high (at the top) on the list for deserving rats. A true rat among forumites!

"If nominated I will not run. If elected I will not serve."

William Tecumshe Sherman

Sherman is a favorite of mine. A very nervous school teacher at the outbreak of hostility. More than one nervous breakdown in the course of matters. He didn't like it. But set him loose with an army! The scourge of Atalanta and much of the South East.

"what a thing to be valued for..."

It is weird and awful, isn't it Phllip? The thing I like about Sherman isn't his military prowess, which was substantial, it's his sense of the horror. Best to get this done as quickly as possible, because it's horrific.

Anybody in the penalty box should be the first nomination
