Chattering Teeth Blog Nominated for Paul Revere Award

What!? This blog has been nominated for the Paul Revere Award this year. Per the sponsoring blog Political Clown Parade, "The Paul Revere Award is dedicated to those bloggers who hold down jobs and raise their families while standing guard over liberty."

Poll Is Now Open: Begin Voting For The Fifth Annual Paul Revere Award
Thanks, guys, for including me on this prodigious list of blogiliciousness. It truly is an honor. I'd like to thank all of the bots for the fake hit count, and all the good folks who googled "why do my dog's teeth chatter" and regret clicking the link here. You ALL deserve to share in this award.

This nomination comes at a time when my blogging is becoming more sporadic and infrequent due to the busy schedule of late. This is only my fifth post so far this month, down from a 2017 high in January of 23 total posts. I am left to conclude that the rarer my posts become, the more the need for rewarding this lack of effort.

That being the case, please head on over to the Political Clown Parade and vote for Chattering Teeth blog. I have no chance of winning (based on the competition), but if my vote total reaches double digits, I vow to blog even more meagerly during the summer months.

You are allowed to vote only once, but for as many blogs as you wish, so vote for my friends who also were nominated. Z at GeeeZ, Kid at Diary of a Right Wing Pussycat, and Ypsi Ed at Not Of This World. The list is missing a few of my favorites, but I won't treat you any differently (even though I'm better than you).

"When I'm on the can in the morning, I always steer my browser to the Chattering Teeth Blog to help me get things moving in the morning." - President Trump

NAVIN JOHNSON (Steve Martin): The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here! I'm somebody now! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity I need! My name in print! That really makes somebody! Things are going to start happening to me now.

Voting will close at 11:30 PM ET on Saturday, June 17.

Please pick up any hanging chads on your way out.


  1. Thanks, Ed! But last time I checked, my tally hasn't reached double digits - meaning your vote is disenfranchised and I will be blogging MORE!

  2. Congratulations. If I won this award In 2015 , then I'm sure you'll be a shoo in this year.

  3. I voted for you!
    Very funny post!

  4. cube, your link is broke, which proves I'm a shoo-in for something :)

    Z, are there participation trophies? If not, I'm not sure how to handle rejection.

  5. Sorry about the broken link. I don't know why it's not working. In any event, it was just
    a photo of my award from 2015.


  6. SHOW OFF! :) I was like 99 out of 100... gotta try harder (and watch those pesky dangling participle thingys)
