It's our last kudos before Mark is back! As of next week there will be 100% more kilts, spray tans, Irn Bru, and Serrels stares (almost a month here and I have not mastered it — no, I have not even attempted it — I am a failure). Anyway, let's kick this off so we can all start our weekend (and Logan can start working!).
Jamesmag (he was careful to remind me that he is JamesMAG, not JamesMAC, not JamesWHATEVER, just JamesMAG) nominated Batguy for "being a true bro and informing us of the two hot chicks he saw making out on the way to work" and for regularly supplying the community with the TABTOL.
Rocketman has also nominated Batguy for telling TAY about the "two hot lesbians" he saw making out. Rocketman also gives Batguy props for the TABTOL, "but mostly the lesbian story". A nom also goes to Blaghman for hosting Can'd meat this weekend!
Rocketman is also giving me a nom because I have not broken Kotaku yet (my words, not his :P).
Steve-O The Deve-O is throwing in a nom for Jamesmag for his excellent LoL play over the last two weeks. There's also a nom in there for Batguy for that hot chicks making out story.
I am noticing a trend here...
Anyway, this is long, so it's time for an intermission! Here is a photo I took when I was at Paris Disneyland last year. This is Warren Spector giving me (and other journalists) a tour of the place to show us the parts of Disneyland that inspired Epic Mickey. It was a cool event! But Disneyland creeps me out and I was clawing my way out of there as soon as they tried making us go on vomit-inducing rides.
Dear Chuloopa noms Sughly for his awesome return AND for drawing him a cartoon. Sughly, you are a talented man. Chuloopa also double noms Sughly (gosh, what is this DEVIOUS NONSENSE?) because: "I asked him if he could send me a high-res verison of his drawing, and he said he didn't have one, so he just redrew it just for me!" 'Loops is not putting that design on a shirt. Yeeeeah boi!
Strange is nomming Sughly in hope that he will draw me a picture (awww!), and Blaghman for hosting Can'd Meat tomorrow. "He has no idea what he's in for!" she says. Be afraid, Blaghmang, be very, very afraid.
Huntsman is nomming Trjn for his "Let's Play" videos and his contribution to TAY. Chuloopa also gets a nom for his contribution to TAY despite the loss of a family member. Man, that Chuloopa is a top guy. We wanna give him a nom, too! (I do realise that makes it sound like we want to bite a chunk out of him — I assure you we do not!).
I also get a nom from Huntsman for not breaking Kotaku, so yay!
Trjn noms Batguy NOT for the hot lesbian story but for giving him an Xbox Live code to one month's access to XBL Gold. A nom goes to Lady Strange for the same thing.
I also got this message just now from JamesMac: "Not a nomination per se... But if you could let it be known that, due to continued good behavior, I'm allowing Hinden Lagen to remove 'The Damned' suffix from his name." I don't really know what he's going on about, but I trust that this will make sense to some people.
Well, it was a good week of noms and a fantastic week on Kotaku! Going against my better judgement, I am declaring Batguy the winner of this week's Community Kudos, largely for being an awesome guy, secondly for bringing so much happiness to other readers by sharing that story. I expect there to be a hot story about two guys kissing on TAY next week.
