The Lobster Award

Inspired by Sue Elvis, The Lobster Award is the latest honorable decoration to hit the Blogging World. As prestigious as any other Award before it and to come in future, this coveted prize is given to carefully selected Bloggers far and wide in the vast sea of turbulent waves and calmer waters that is called the World Wide Web.

This is no mere trinket given to all and sundry to parade proudly on their Blog side-bars for all to see.

This is no measly sardine sized Award on a slice of burnt toast, or a miniscule thin anchovy sliver fighting for attention on the immense sized Blogging Pizza on the Internet serving dish.

The Lobster Award is a majestic sized trophy in its own right.

Worthy of its own singularly desirable dish; served on a silver platter with no requirements whatsoever for a side-salad, or other such piffling interruptions to confuse and distract the most discerning of palates. .

The Lobster Award deserves a place on its own in the culinary mélange which is the Awards Industry. Served all by itself to the few carefully selected Bloggers who merit recognition and distinction from amongst their peers and the rest of society.

This magnificent and rarely presented Award is only given to those tireless and hard-working Bloggers who, despite the many vicissitudes which life may throw in their way, despite the magnitude of the task ahead in their daily grind that is this vale of tears, despite every obstacle, every hardship, and every discouragements and temptations to just click and move on to another Blog; they still find time to visit your personal offering and to regularly leave a message there in the Comments Box.

Yes friends and fellow Blogging Community. The Lobster Award is an honor given to those Bloggers who visit you regularly, no matter how feeble, tiresome, long-winded and sleep making your posts may be, and who leave a word of encouragement or good cheer in your Comments Box.

These brave and intrepid people who regularly visit your Blog time and again and encourage your own valiant Blogging efforts deserve more than a mere cup of tea and biscuits, more than a sardine on toast, more than a measly bit of anchovy on a slice of pizza. They deserve the best which International Cuisine can offer. They deserve The Lobster Award.  

Over the years many such kind people have visited my humble Blog, this lone voice whispering in the vast wilderness of the World Wide Web, and through sheer fortitude and courage have found it within themselves to leave me a kind and soothing message to alleviate my loneliness and insomnia at the computer keyboard. 

Friends, visitors, and writers of Comments, I salute you and proudly present you with your Lobster Award.

Please step forward to collect you memorable Lobster Awards, in no particular order, but not all at once so as to create a rush at the podium ...

Proudly copy the Lobster Award logo above on your Blogs and in turn feel inspired and encouraged to nominate others who visit and leave regular messages in your Comments Box.

The rules for nominations are simple:

1   Nominate someone who regularly visits your Blog and leaves a message in the Comments Box.

2   Tell them about their nomination.

Thank you and God bless.


  1. Thank you for thinking of me! It is always such a joy to visit you! Cathy

  2. Victor,

    You are the wittiest and most creative blogger I have ever come across!

    Your writing style is a complete delight!

    Thank you for the nomination.

  3. Thank you for this award, Victor!! I love it!

  4. WOW you are so eloquent, so witty and creative in your writing, as Daily Grace said 'a complete delight!' Thanks for thinking of me Victor, very nice indeed!
    Congrats to all who have been nominated : )

  5. Victor,

    I had such a good laugh when I saw this post! What a great idea for an award. You have spread a lot of joy using your thoughtfulness and fantastic sense of humour. Thank you!

    It is always a real pleasure to visit your blog, Victor and leave a comment. I don't really need an award for doing this as it's no hardship at all. I enjoy 'chatting' in the comments box. You always take the time to respond to whatever I write and I like to come back and read your replies.

    Thank you so much for thinking about my last comment and then creating an award. I feel honoured to be nominated. I shall respond on my own blog very soon.

    God bless!

  6. Love it! Love it! Love It! And this is what makes you so unique, Victor! You make us laugh, you make us think, you offer help when people are in need and you have one of the quickest minds out there! Thanks for the nomination. (And thank YOU, Lord, for giving Victor such a wonderful sense of humor!)
    God bless you, my friend :) I think this is my favorite award yet!

  14. Dear Victor,

    Thank you for starting this award which I received through Chareen at Every Bed of Roses. I just love a good conversation so I'm really grateful for my commenters and I appreciate this award a lot.

    I've enjoyed your sense of humour, in your comments, on my sister, Sue's blog, Victor - you're very entertaining! I'm going to spend some time, now, reading - and giggling, too, I suspect - as I browse through your posts.

    Thank you for brightening the blogging world.
    God bless:)

  15. Thank you Vicky for your very kind comments. I look forward to seeing you here often and commenting too.

    God bless.



God bless you.
