    Default Superfluous Coney Award

    I would like to start the Superfluous Coney Award. The Coney would be award on an ongoing basis for heroic acts of stupidity. For instance, this morning's Coney would go to the GW NPS for the parking of a truck in an MVT cross walk when 100 parking spots are sitting there empty.



    Other awards could go to things like the NPS issuing a ticket to a cyclist for a violation of VA law, when NPS is standing in DC (NPS had to call the cyclist and politely inform him that the citation was being retracted because.... stupid) - or that time that guy decided to drive a park truck down the MVT over one of those wooden bridges, just CRUSHING the bridge. Now, look, these dont all have to be about NPS (they are just easy).

    The idea here is to create something along the lines of the Colbert Report Wag of the Finger, and use humor to highlight stupidity.

    Did you say something to them? If so, they kind of got the memo and moved to here by 8:15ish (timestamp is off by like 10 minutes on my camera for some reason). Of course, they still felt the need to park over three spots and at a T with another vehicle.

    Yeah the guy was desperately trying to say "i'm sorry" to me as it was clear I was taking a pic of his cleaverly parked truck

    Problem with this contest is that NPS will win all the awards.

    Wow - that was fast - and this one is not even awarded to NPS.

    The Next "Superfluous Orange Cone Award" (SOCA) goes to..... the Gov. of Delaware (whose a cyclist dont ya know) for his superfluous use of SUVs and power crazed body guards on the streets of DC.



    I'm thinking we are actually gonna have to have these awards made and mail them out.

    It's no doubt sitting empty with the engine running, also. You never know when a governor might need to jump into action, like when they had to rush Andrew Cuomo up to personally investigate that prison break in upstate NY.

    Governors should be on their guard. When they come to DC to "jump into action" it occasionally results in embarrassing press conferences and their state getting a new governor.
