And The Winner Is…

And The Winner Is…



The Oscars…Emmy’s…Grammy’s…Tony’s…and the list goes on.

It’s that time of year when we stroke the fragile egos of celebrity-dom, and dole out awards like free samples of oxycodon!

My Odd Sock is no different.

Staring at the empty trophy case in the reception area at the My Odd Sock reception area leaves an unsettled feeling in one’s gut.


When will it be our turn to celebrate?



Well, lo & behold, the award Gods must have heard our childish whimper!

My Odd Sock has just received a near-perfect score of four and a half out of five walkers from the Mobility Aids Association of America.


The Mobility Aids Association of America, MAAA for short, recognizes My Odd Sock’s grammatical shortcomings and redundant, adolescent humor.


But that is not the only honor we have been given…




My Odd Sock was selected as a finalist in the first-ever (I had to edit because I stuck my corn-riddled size 10 foot in my big mouth!) 2011 WEGO Health Activist Awards!

It’s true.  My Odd Sock was one of seven chosen in the “Hilarious Health Activist” category.




We didn’t win (needed to bribe the judges more), but it was an honor to be nominated.

Thank you WEGO Health!

He's happy all right!

Let me introduce you to “Happy the Clown.”

“Happy” is the company logo of a local bakery.

Not sure if it is just me, but Happy…..looks……..drunk!

No wonder he’s so damm happy—he’s three sheets to the wind!




On the back, he tells me to “Smile, you’ve got it in the bag.”


I think Happy’s got that wrong—he’s the one in the bag!

  1. Congrats on the WEGO Health Activist Award for hilarity! You crank out new material every other day while the rest of us are just plain cranky!

    May the wind be always at your bag…

  2. I never know when you’re pulling our leg, (not really fair to us crips!)but in my denseness, I’ll assume that the first award is a gag, but the second is real! So hearty congrats!! If you didn’t win, with all your wit and humor, the honor must have gone to a professional comedian. Glad someone recognized your talent.

  3. Have no fear, the WEGO Health Activist Awards will be back next year – we’re already plotting. And for the record, Happy the Clown is definitely hammered.

  4. Jack,

    Thank you for the nomination!
    My comment seemed mean-spirited–but I was trying to say My Odd Sock probably killed it. Sometimes my humor and my intention don’t meet at the crossroads. Very sorry!
