And the Plastic Joy award goes to......

Recently on twitter there have been a few tweets that have stuck around in my subconscious. There they lurk and occasionally float the surface, bob for a minute and sink again….so today they all bobbed up at once, like flotsam after a shipwreck, and caused a thought…… this blog post is the result of that thought.

So there are ‘AWARDS’ on blogs, and they are like memes in that you usually have to blog something and then pass on the award. This is a cute idea, it links blogs and introduces you to new people and new blogs. But where do these awards begin? Who creates them?

Well in this case – I do!

This award is the Plastic Joy Award. Now, I wanted to call it the plastic s*x award but guessed that that would attract bots to my (and your!) pages like blood attracts sharks to a shipwreck so…Plastic Joy. It was created in reaction to the picture above, where action man and an unamed myscene doll were caught in the act in my bathroom!

Here’s the thing, if you are awarded the Plastic Joy award you must list 5 fictional characters that ‘you would’ (you know what I’m talking about! Don’t pretend and stop sniggering at the back, I’ll speak to you after class) these should be the fictional character not ‘actors’ who play the characters on film or TV (so no David Tennant!!) but actually fictional characters themselves. You can expand on ‘why’ if you like but you can also just list them. (and leave us to comment and wonder!) Book characters would be easiest as they rely on your imagination more.....

And then, copy the pic to your blog, link back to here and pass the award on to at least 5 people. Let’s give it a whirl

1. Sherlock Holmes

2. Edward Cullen (I’m not proud of this BTW)

3. Worf (or to be fair any Klingon – I’m not even fussy!)

4. Sam Vimes (if you do not know this character run off and read some Terry Pratchett immediately. Guards Guards would be good.)

5. Superman (what’s not to like really!! He can fly too!)

so who get's this award? hmmmm
