We Win a Warnie (part deux)

by Phil Johnson

ast year, just three days after the launch of my original blog, PyroManiac, Brit-blogger Adrian Warnock catapulted me to worldwide fame by bestowing on me the most coveted award in the entire Christian blogosphere: the Warnie!

The following month, I met Dr. Warnock for the first time. Within an hour, all London was in utter chaos. Dr. Warnock has been cautious about sending any awards this way ever since. Also, he was not a huge fan of the gang-blog format we introduced in January.

But Adrian has finally come to grips with the harsh realities of Frank Turk and our new blogformat. Plus, he likes Dan Phillips's posts. So he is adding PyroManiacs to his world-famous award-list and blog-aggregator.

In return, we're adding the world-famous Warnie! stamp of approval to our right sidebar. We're also promising to use our link-troll graphic a little more judiciously in the future.

But I can't resist posting it one last time:

LINK TROLL!

[wipes tears of uproarious laughter from both eyes]

Oh Phil -- that's my favorite. The link troll is by a long shot the best graphic we have in the pot.

Frank Martens said...

That graphic is brilliant I tell ya! Brilliant!

GROSSly brilliant. {{{shudder}}}

I do want to say that the topic on "Pulpit Live" is excellent!!!

I think we should make Adrian an honorary Pyro (no posting privileges, mind you) for is trouble over the link troll graphic. He really is a nice guy.

No wait -- that means he can't be an honorary Pyro. Can we make him a sidekick at Gummby's blog? Gummby's a nice guy.

Phil Johnson said...

We could offer to re-do the Warnie Stamp for him....

Cindy said...

Congrats! I'm trying hard to control my enviousness here. I would so love a Warnie. However, I'll swallow my pride and bestow the warmest of congratulations upon you. (Grumble under breath: some people get all the luck...:) )

Congratulations!

Mike Y said...

Love the Link Troll.

...reminds me of a guy I used to knock on doors with.

Adrian said...

I am LOL at that reworked troll and even used it over on my own blog as an update to the original post! You guys are the best and ALL deserve that Warnie as a team!

Now its getting all gushy around here! Quick, somebody start an argument about something!

Steve said...

Actually, I would suggest that Adrian redo the Warnie stamp by using that great picture Darlene took with the jets streaming across the sky.

And Adrian wants an argument? Wasn't the one about cessationism one of his favs?

marc said...

Wow, a Warnie! I don't know what to say. I'm humbled and honored and appreciative and I really don't deserve this. Adrian thank you... hey wait this isn't my blog!

centuri0n said...

Phil --

There are no jokes left. That Warnie is the one we should publish on the blog, and then only publish serious theology with no spice at all. It would say everything at once and leave people utterly in a state of hillarity not seen since the Tornoto Blessing.

As my Dad always said:

"Red of a morning,
Sailors a Warnie."

Phil,

Indeed, a preciousssss graphic. I feel a loud gulp in my throat coming any minute. Is Darlene cooking fissshess? Congrats on the Warnie.

CenturiOn, I note with interest you referenced the Toronto Blessing with the word "hillarity." Was that mispelling perhaps a Freudian slip cluing us all to the candidate for whom you will not be voting in 2008? Or was it a surreptitious attempt to tie the esteemed Senator to Rodney Howard Browne? That will be a campaign ad I can't wait to see. Imagine that and the famous "Chuckles the Clown is Dead" episode from the Mary Tyler Moore show juxtaposed to one another. Yes, I have a sick mind.

Adrian, thank you for bestowing the Warnie on one of my favorite blogs, and I do enjoy yours as well! Now, if you would complete your kindness by doing something about the matastasis of haggis around the world. I am convinced that there are profound spiritual lessons that can be drawn from a haggis. Although I am not sure I want to go to bed at 11:10 p.m. thinking about this rather dubious Scottish dish. I am out of Maalox.

What? No Warnettes?

The Borg said...

I would have thought that a "Warnie" is not something you want to get. Who wants to be associated with a boozing, philandering, fat Australian cricket player??

kletois said...

The Borg,
while Warnie isn't a person I want to emulate morally, I wouldn't mind gaining his leg spinning abilities.

Steve said...

As always, I appreciate how the graphics quietly change as time goes by. So now there's the red, white, and blue behind Big Ben.

By the way, the use of the "illuminated" drop caps hasn't gone unnoticed. Nice touch.

So many things for the right sidebar, so little space.
