awards page

We Van Gogh-Goghs try not to make a big deal about winning web-based awards. Oh sure, we accept them with our usual grace, but we try to take it all in our collective, calm, mannered stride. It's all very well, these graphic blobs distributed by who, really? Some computer geeks feeling self-important. People who think they're "funny." Does the Nobel Committee distribute link buttons declaring "This web page has won the Nobel Prize for Sexiest Asses?" I wish.

Yea, one far flung day, the accolades will fall away like withered rose petals, the awards will be so many deleted data bytes and the sun will set on our hard drive for the last time, in the gloaming. Which, I think, is a kind of pudding.

That said and done, we've won the following awards! Woo-Hoo!

The Golden Alien
(December 14, 2000)

Macroblur.com has awarded our Furniture Porn site the highly coveted "Golden Alien Swell Site Award." Well, we would have highly coveted it, only this is the first one they've given out.
YPL featured site

Furniture Porn was declared a Featured Site by the folks at You're Probably Lost. Good thing, too, cuz we needed another award, bad!

Best of the Web 1999
(November 9, 1999)

After a long dry spell, we find that we've won a U.S. News & World Report Best of the Web 1999 award? Yeah, we would think it was kinda weird too, if the category wasn't humor sites.
King of the Web Award
(July 27, 1999)

We won the King of the Web Award. We were praised as "informative," "a quality site," and "...an excellent contribution to the internet community..." Aw, man! Now we feel all weird and full of wholesome goodness and stuff. Now we know how spinach feels.
Fyre Womyn's Five Coolest Sites of the Week Award
(July 26, 1999)

Fyre Womyn awarded us the coveted Fyre Womyn's Five Coolest Sites of the Week Award. Personally, I'm slightly miffed at having to share the award with four other bozos.
Pegasus' Web Award
(June 30, 1999)

We won the Pegasus' Web Award. They especially liked Furniture Porn: "Don't think I've ever lol(ed) that much when reviewing a site..... when I hit the porn furniture - the whole house was loling along...."
The review is so nice I almost forgot how much I hate the abbreviation "LOL."
Critical Mass Award
(June 21, 1999)

The Critical Mass Award was awarded to our site for being "very nice," and "good." and for having our content "presented well and easy to access" Sniff! Gosh Dad, we didn't know you cared!

"You've got one fine site," said Paul, and awarded us the Home Grown Award. He especially liked Kremlin Fried Chicken.

(June 11, 1999)

Furniture Porn won the Open Directory Cool Site Award. Does this mean we have to share our code with everyone? No wait, that's Open Source. Never mind.
Weirdness Web Award
(June 11, 1999)

Furniture Porn was featured in Tim Faith's Weirdness Web. Personally I don't see what's so weird about two adult, mutually consenting pieces of furniture having sex.
the Fathead Award
(May 29, 1999)

The Fathead Award Supervisor informed us we won the Fathead Award. Sheesh! I have to run this damn site all by myself, and they have one guy just for awards?! Double sheesh!

This Site is a Joke Award
(June 6, 1999)

Our site won Humor.com's "This Site is a Joke" Award. If only we had thought to snag the valuable piece of web estate that must be Humor.com. Then we could give ourselves an award!
CoolStop Funny Stuff Award
(May 14, 1999)

Furniture Porn won the CoolSTOP "Funny Stuff Award." Which is a disappointment, because we were shooting for their "Deadly Serious Stuff Award."

Wacky Web World Award
(Dec. 3, 1998)

Our site has also received the "prestigious" Wacky Web World award. I wish these things came with plaques. A gif file just looks stupid on the mantel.
Comedy Planet Award
