So what do I call the positive stuff? Help me out.
« on: August 06, 2009, 02:20:08 PM »
So I am digging having an assclown of the day for the intro segment but as per today's show what do I call the people that get positive mentions.  Keeping in mind that the positive action may come from a typical assclown indeed in one day it may be the same person or group getting both awards.

So on the positive side fill in the blank,

____________ of the day

To me like hero of the day is going way to far!  I am not really fond of say "anti assclown" but I kinda guess that is what it is.

Judging from the level of activity on this thread, I suppose many, like me, are having difficulty thinking of anything that is not cheesy.  I wonder how others might classify such people:

Ayn Rand - Producer
Rawles - Survivalist/Patriot
Lenin - Comrade
Reader's Digest - Contributor
McCarthy - American/Citizen
Rabbi - Mensch
Sartre - A figment of my imagination
Marketing - Team Player!
The Colony - Mike or John C

Hopefully others can do better.

My fear is due to the whole "prince Obama" concept it won't be taken positively.  Oh and abilard don't worry about lack of response I forgot to post this in the morning right now it is only a few minutes old.

Well if we have AssClowns, we might as well have ...


For someone who stumbled, against all odds, into a good idea ... An Freshly Powdered AssClown.

For someone who elvated themselves, despite the Peter Principle, to new heights of mere competence ... the Lower Back Award.

For someone, previously unknown, with one good idea to their credit ... the Left Field Award.

For someone who consistently comes up with good solutions ... the Ham and Egger Award.

Hero wannabe of the day...
For exapmle just because Bill Clinton and Al Gore put together a little PR plan for uping the stats on Gores TV media interests (which are failing,) it doesn't make Clinton anything more than a hero wannabe.
So, that's my vote.

And never forget the truth lies somewhere in the middle between ass clown and hero.

I say if you are going to try and stick to your thought of looking for something done right by somebody you generally disagree with, then you should go with the "Blind Squirrel" of the day.  I'm sure you've heard the saying before.

I like "Hero of the Day" for someone with a fantastic idea or deed.
But to honor someone who showed an exceptional thought or positive idea for the day I like "PAP" positive action person

Positave Action Person PAP sounds kind of like a "Sanitized" term...(No offense)

I change my vote to Blind Squirrel. I think it has just the right connotation.

Hi Jack, how about " The Atta Boy, I'm NOT an Ass Clown Today Award"

Most of the time the correct answer to any given situation is sooo obvious to those who have common sense that the " Well DUH!" response would seem appropriate.

Ok, so I'm catching up on the podcasts - I missed the one where you must have defined "assclown" and "asshat".  So, I think I get your meaning, but just in case, what is your definition?  Thanks!

Being born and raised the south, I think of the rodeo when I hear the word clown. It just seems right to me to call the opposite of the clown the cowboy. I'm thinking that if we are the bull, we have our sights set on the ass-clown which takes the focus off the cowboy. Also, cowboy to me still brings up visions of what good American patriots should be. So I say call it Ass-Clowns and Cowboys. Just my two cents  ;)

I like that.
Its about time the word "Cowboy" got some respect back.
Somehow of late its taken on a negative meaning in the media.

I agree... Cowboy would be a good term.
