The Comment Awards Visit Web 3.0

Hello, Kipper. Hello, Arnold. Don’t you think life would be great if we were all animated British dogs? I sure do. This was an extra-special week in my life as a real-life American human because the Internet came 3-D not once but twice! I drove north to the hinterlands and met Intern Grace and Girlfriend Meg in their homeland and let me just tell you, dear reader, Grace is the bee’s knees. You can check out some of her work from this week here. I wasn’t the only person enjoying web 3.0, some of our family went to Shedonism in Las Vegas many many weeks ago and Jessica reported from the front lines. You can bring the Internet to life with your very own Autostraddle t-shirt which might make you easily spottable if, say, an adorable reader were to come into your work. We used graphics to look at your demographics from the reader survey, and Laneia helped us out because really we’re all just people. Riese counted down the top 10 L Word guest stars, we watched ”Shirt Straight Girls Say To Lesbians”, and some of you decided that it was time to break up. Sarah Croce nursed you back to health with vegan black bean spinach soup and Carolyn made your nights easier and more delicious with coconut mango chicken.

The Of The Places You’ll Go Award to Salicet: “one boob, two boobs, me boobs, you boobs,

this one has a little scar
Say! What a lot of boobs there are!
Some are pale and some are dark,
and some boobs have some stretch marks
From there to here,
From here to there,
Awesome boobs are everywhere!
some are thin and some are fat,
some are round and some are flat,
Here are some that sag a bit,
and here are some that don’t quite fit.
Not one of them is like another,
Don’t ask us why, go ask your mother.
Oh me, oh my, oh me, oh my!
What a lot of boobs to eye!
They’re all so grand; they’re all so great,
All boobs are undoubtedly first rate!
From there to here,
From here to there,
Awesome boobs are everywhere!
