Amazing work, Wanders. You brought back so many memories of 2012. It will be hard to choose between Floating Gina in the Window and Dawn 's lewd comment about Dave in front of her father (and Michaelangelo).

Also, I didn't realize there was so swearing this year! Moy's going blue.

heydave said...

So many flashbacks to so many wonderful stories to... how much time I've spent on this blog!

What a @&*$#ing wonderful life!

Dave in Parma said...

Wow--Christmas come early! Can't wait to read and vote at lunch!

Nance said...

This poll must have taken you forever to put up! Thank you. It was wonderful to see all of the
"highlights" of 2012 and I can't wait for the awards.

Yahoonski said...

Given the seemingly endless Dawn Weston saga, it's hard to believe there were 3 other stories to consider. Thanks for a fun year, Wanders!

Voting for the Worthy Awards is so much more fun than the recent political elections.

Now about this conversation between Mary and John Dill. How often have you suddenly turned your back on a person with whom you are having a conversation? Mary did it Wednesday, and John did it yesterday and again today. I'm sure it would appear rather odd to someone observing these two from a distance. Again, you have to wonder if Moy choreographed this scene, or did Uncle Joe come up with it on his own.

So much awesomeness! Thanks Wanders.

One other category to consider - best food of the year:
- Giant unicorn cake
- Ghost pie
- Kelk casserole
- Salmon squares
- Vegetable tureen
- Weird white casserole with bacon strips on top for Wilbur
- other __________

Allen said...

Yahoonski nailed it. Dawn's story has been going on so long I'd forgotten about the other stories. Ahhh Gina, my favorite ever-ponytailed waitress!

The two hardest choices for me? Picking between Jim and the Magical Hobo, and then picking between Gina in the Sky or Reminds me of Dave. Whew, that was tough! I agree with Anonymous, best food of the year award!

phoebes in santa fe said...

Voting for me was relatively easy in all the categories other than "Best Regular Character". I couldn't decide which one was the least dismal and couldn't decide, so I didn't vote that category.

Thanks for the good work and brain-spraining time you put in on this, Wanders.

I can understand if Chin Napkin feels slighted. Looks like he may be the victim of a vicious conspiracy against his awesome appearance and Uncle Joe's secret agenda to make Moy look foolish, not that she needs his help.

Dave in Parma said...

It always so tough to choose only 1.

I'd forgotten that even Wilburwas asking back in May about Dawn: " How long will this go on?! "

Delilah said...

But where's Mr. Trololo this year?

fauxprof said...

What awesome choices! I had forgotton Wilbur's "Jazz Hands", and anonymous co-worker's big rubber finger.

This is my first time voting on the Worthy Awards, and it was so much more fun than the recent November frolics. I'm just glad that there were no negative, Super-Pac sponsored ads influencing our choices. (I'm from Ohio. It was torture.)

heydave said...

I'm not implying anything, but how many times may we vote?

KitKat said...

Wanders, thanks for your hard work in assembling the nominees! I hope it didn't leave you with a colossal headache. What a trip along Santa Royale Memory Lane! I'd forgotten how much Mr. Giella's version of "David" resembles Steve Martin.

@Anonymous at 9:15 AM, a category for food would be quite an addition. Mary's vegetable terrine vs. pink unicorn cake - oy!

unfair putting jims new arm againest chin napkin who should win every year. life is brutal was so long i forgot there were other storys this year

Sandi Ego said...

Thank you, Wanders, this was so much fun! This is only my second Worthy Awards vote and the first full year I've followed the strip & this blog. What a year it's been- I've laughed out loud at everyone's comments and your brilliant captioning. Am sending a PayPal donation your way :)

kathyo said...

Rainbow Swirl ice cream!

Wanders said...

@Delilah: Mr Trololo performed at the awards ceremony last year, which we'll have in January. This is just the initial vote.

@Sandi Ego: THANK YOU!

Anonymous said...

I vote for the hapless cruise ship waif who says "I help" (aiuto) instead of "help me" (aiutame).

James in North Dakota said...

I LOL'ed (and then screamed out #$*@#!$ after falling out of my chair) at the Jim "Bob," a delightful nod to Twin Peaks.

Anonymous said...

Ya know, that floating-Gina-head panel is absolutely outstanding and, IMHO, would be Panel of the Year were it not for Dawn's "reminds me of Dave" comment.
