JBM's Award Speech

Brady sent this to me in an e-mail:

"First of all, let me start by saying that I am extremely humbled by this award. Of course, being humbled isn’t real at all. But, since I’ve already won the award, I can be humble. Probably, the only possible way that being humble is real is by being humbled by being real. So, yes, I’m humbled.

I’ve been working toward this award for a long time, and there are lot of people that should be thanked. First, to the Realests. You’ve taken pizza slices to the face. You’ve thrown beer all over yourself. You’ve had beer thrown on you by others. You’ve created a scene. In fact, your entire existence is a scene. You are my inspiration. Without you, I’d be, well, not real at all.

Next, I’d like to thank my parents, Kathy and David, for supporting me through all of those times when I wasn’t real. Like the time when I tried to sing the Battle Hymn of the Republic at Patriots Day in 5th grade, and some kid picked on me and told me I was going to fail, and I cried in front of the whole school. Or the time that I spent a Sunday afternoon throwing a hissy fit because I needed to rake the leaves instead of watch the Bills Jets game.

Realness is something so unique, something so intangible, you just can’t touch it or explain it. So, what does it mean that I’m the ROW this week? Everything. Or nothing. And that’s the beauty of realness.

Thanks,

ROW, May 3-17"

That was the gayest acceptance speech of all time. You should be stripped of your realness, dragged out into the woods, and repeatedly ass fucked by a bunch of retarded rednecks.
