Satirical website TheSkunk.org honored itself today with a prestigious comedy award. The first annual “Skunkie” was presented to a humor website whose content “extends beyond the edge and over the top of contemporary parody.”
The recipient was chosen by secret ballot by the editorial staff of TheSkunk.org, and the results were known only to the editor-in-chief.
In his acceptance speech, Editor-in-Chief Braddon Mendelson thanked himself for the award, and promised to continue pushing the envelope with edgy satire, ripping editorials and absurd self-promotion.
“We are very pleased to bestow this honor upon ourselves,” said Mendelson, “and equally as pleased to receive it from such an outstanding publication as TheSkunk.org.”
