Did you watch the Oscar awards on Sunday? The whole show? And you managed to stay awake?! AMAZING!! You deserve an award. But too bad! There’s only one award that we’re handing out today… the award for the 3RD ANNUAL COCKY & RUDE OSCAR CONTEST! This year’s winner correctly predicted 20 of the 24 Academy Award categories. AND NOW … without further ado … the winner is: MR. SOMBRERO! Yippee! Hurray! Woohoo!!! Congratulations! It’s so nice that a lurker didn’t win the big prize this year! Ha! Now before you claim that I cheated and let Mr. Sombrero win the contest, let’s take a look at the results.
Here’s a chart of final scores:
And now, some fun observations! An impressive 100% of the Oscar predictors correctly chose Daniel Day-Lewis as Best Actor.
95.5% of the Oscar predictors correctly chose Anne Hathaway as Best Supporting Actress. The only contestant that incorrectly chose Sally Field as Best Supporting Actress was none other than Polt (who tied for the least correct Oscar predictions). Lolz what a dummy!
Each year we invite the contest participants to predict the Best and Worst Dressed Academy Award celebrity attendee. Since these categories are subjective, they do not count towards final scores. Here are the results for the Best Dressed category:
And the results for Worst Dressed:
That wraps up the results of this year’s Oscar Contest. Thanks to everyone who participated! Congratulations again to Mr. Sombrero! You’ll soon be in possession of a 8 packs of candy and a Blu-Ray copy of The Last Airbender. Hopefully this will not impact his BC&RL results!
So what did you think of this year’s Oscar Awards? Any surprises? Who really was best & worst dressed of the night? Comment quickly before the Jaws theme plays you off!
While innocently surfing the Internet, I stumbled upon some survey results from a few years ago. It seems that the reputable source, Condomania.com has determined a unique rankings of average penis size in the 50 states. Here’s Condomania’s results, ordered by largest to smallest penis:
By now you’ve scanned the list to see where you rank. Are you lucky enough to be living in well-endowed New Hampshire? Or maybe you’re living in Micropenisville, Wyoming? Most of the C&R frequent commenters living in the following 8 states … and here’s how we measure up:
The results turned out quite well for the presumably well-hung Mikey, Craig, Ty, Josh, Jere and the rest of our New York commenters. Unfortunately those of us in New Jersey (like myself) and Maine didn’t quite measure up. But as those of us who are a bit less than well endowed often claim: it’s not the size of the boat but the motion of the ocean.
A final note … New Yorkers shouldn’t whip out their junk and celebrate too quickly. When Condomania.com ranked the 20 most populated U.S. cities by their average penis size, some new facts were revealed:
It’s good news for commenters like Harry, Ryan and VUBOQ, who live in or near San Diego and Washington D.C. It looks like they may out-measure a few of our New York City friends after all.
So how do you measure up? Are these lists accurate? And what city and state will you be visiting on your next vacation?
In what was a very distressing match for Adam… RYAN has won the latest round of Cocky & Rude Fight Club Round Two. After a total of 272 votes, Ryan has defeated both Adam and Chris D. with a total of 134 votes — or 49% of the popular vote. In second place was C&R lead blogger Adam, with only 94 votes, or 35% of the popular vote. In last place was Chris D., with 44 votes, or 16% of the popular vote. We mourn the loss of two more Fight Club combatants, but congratulate Ryan — who advances to the next round!
After a total of 252 votes, the latest round of Cocky & Rude Fight Club Round Two has gone to everyone’s favorite Jeopardy! champion, Ty Cone! It seems that quiz games are not the only games that Ty excels at… With just 44% of the popular vote (or 112 votes), Ty claimed victory over both Mush and Jere. In second place was Mush, with 79 votes, or 31% of the popular vote. And in last place was Jere, with 61 votes, or 24% of the p0pluar vote. We mourn the loss of both Mush and Jere from our Fight Club, but welcome Ty as he advances to round three!
With a significantly lower-than-usual vote count (130, to be exact), the latest round of Cocky & Rude Fight Club Round Two goes to Mr. Sombrero, who has claimed victory over both Mel and Mikey. Mr. Sombrero earned an impressive 45% of the popular vote (or 59 votes). Coming in second was the yarn-loving Mel, earning 41 votes, or 32% of the popular vote. And in a surprising last place was Mikey, earning just 30 votes, or 23% of the popular vote. We mourn the loss of our favorite C&R Friday blogger and our friend from Maine, but congratulate Mr. Sombrero — who advances to the next round!
Welcome to Cocky & Rude Fight Club: ROUND TWO! The rules to the game are simple. Each week we’ll re-introduce our fighters. We’ll give them each a chance to speak their mind. Then we’ll put the results to vote. You’ll pick which combatant will decimate their opponent in the knock-down, drag-out brawl of Cocky & Rude Fight Club! Let’s meet this week’s fighters…
Each week of Round Two, we’ll drop three Round One winners into the ring and see who remains standing after a 24-hour Cocky & Rude Fight Club vote. Today’s contestants are: Tam, “The Kid” and John.
While I may be the senior member of this trifecta, I believe I have some abilities that the others do not. On the one hand, I control the life of said most junior member. Party on Saturday? HAHAHAHA, yeah right. How about cream cheese and tomato sandwiches in your lunch every day for the next term? I have skillz. I may be old, but I’m wiley, I’ve got experience on my side and taking out a rabbit and a teenager easily distracted by cute boys and wedding dresses will be a snap. I have the appropriate Tumblr blogs bookmarked and carrots ready for step one in my plan: distraction. They are going down. -Tam
Do you actually think you’ll win against me? I’m Jack’s smirking revenge. I’m Jack’s cold sweat. Hell, I’m even Jack’s raging bile duct. I’m the all-singing, all dancing crap of this world, but I’m done with this, these are my words now. I’ll pull the rabbit out of the hat and send my mother back home. I spend my nights in a cage and my days at the underground. I’m made of steel and have youth on my side, ’cause I be eating a Triple Big Mac with an extra large fry. Ain’t no body more beast then I, are you even going try and call that a lie? Give me a chance to unleash my world of fury because when you leave the match your vision is gonna be blurry! -“The Kid”
I sense some dissention in the ranks and I am going to exploit that by pitting mom against daughter. Forget the fact that I am taller than both combatants, combined. I am going to first side with the Kid. She can wear that top, she can stay out after midnight, no, she can’t talk to Adam, it will scar her for life. Once Tam is out of the way, I will pick off the Kid! – John
Who will win in the battle of Tam vs. “The Kid” vs. John? There’s only one rational way to decide who will win this battle. We’re putting this no-holds-barred fight to a vote. The poll will be open for approximately 24 hours, and you may vote as many times as you want. That’s right — we’re not blocking repeat votes, so vote now and vote often for your favorite Cocky & Rude Fight Club opponent.
Check back on Sunday for the results!
Thanks to Michelle M., Tam, Kristin & John for your assistance with this post!
