Best Nickname awarded to a host, "YentaBitch"

"UsaGiJoe" for that penis pump antennae post. Definitely the most creative and funnist post of the year!
THE BLOND AWARD: Goes to all those posters who didn't receive any responses to their posts. What the hell did they say anyway? No one understood them, or didn't care. Either way, they were "blond" statements.

Runner up - Bill - Will the last
barbarian to leave town please lock the gate
Well, yesterday evening, to the strains of Schumann's Träumerei, I
eliminated WWDB from the buttons of my radios.
Perhaps it is a good omen for surely now the whisper goes round the
cubbies of the WWDB studios, "Storm no longer listens."
Frantic meetings will soon be called at East Levering Mill Road to address
Pallor will dim the faces of the WWDB secretaries, while panic will ripple
through the station's advertisers.
Someone, unable to stand the misery any longer will rise and, through
splashing tears, call for a restoration of sanity.
Slowly the word will echo and voices will rise, fists will pound, feet
will stomp and WWDB will cast off the Czars of destruction and return to
its days of triumph.
Or it may not.
