Subject: THE 2006 AMIRIGHT SOTM PARODY AUTHOR OF THE YEAR

Written By: Red Ant on 02/26/07 at 9:04 am

Y'know, I remember saying a while back that we might need a tie breaker to determine the PAotY. Silly me.  ;D

Despite a three month break from writing and entering just eight SOTM rounds, this author dominated the field. His six best scores would still have gotten him the crown, and finishing the year with three consecutive gold medals (and six total podium trips) is why

Kristof Robertson

is the 2006 Amiright SOTM Parody Author of the Year!

Big congratulations to Overlord Kristof!

Congratulations to our runners-up Red Ant and Stu McArthur, and to all the SOTM participants. There was lots of close competition this year, and 15 different authors have entries in the SOTY voting thread, which will be posted in the next few days.

Congrats Kristof - I could see that victory coming a long long way from home  (February in fact!)

Congrats to Jack too on a wonderful year!

FOURTH! OH MY GOD!!  :o :o :o

This is amazing, especially in my first year of SOTM participation!

Huge thanks to EVERYONE who has ever voted for me in SOTM!

Big congrats to Kristof, Red and Stu (you all deserved it) as well as everyone who's ever been in SOTM! This is so much fun, and I can't see giving it up anytime soon!

That's what I was thinking when I saw that (during Drama when I wasn't supposed to ;D)! Well done Cat!

Funny thing is, I got 16th, which is all very well. But I'm turning 16 in four days (3rd o' March), so I find that funny.

Kristof won?  Well, who'd a thought it...

Seriously, though, Kristof was in a league of his own last year: so many hilarious songs and every last drop of humour wrung from each subject.

Very well done Jack & Stu - no surprises there, either.  But biggest congrats, IMO, go to Cat after bursting onto the scene with some staggeringly good parodies, often choosing really rather tricky songs to parody.

But how can you write parodies with no fingers"

Oh heck..........

I've just got off a plane from Marrakech (plenty of parody material there, folks!) and thought I'd just log on to see how things are going on amiright....so to read this has absolutely made my day. Cheers, guys and gals!

Honestly, it's a real honour to win Author of the Year. I know SOTM 2006 didn't feature a certain Mr S....com, but his absence in no way detracted from the quality of parodies put forward this year, and the stiffness of the competition.

First of all, congratulations and hats off to my fellow podium-fillers, Messrs Fletcher and McArthur: two powerhouses of parody writing. You two in particular have forced me to lift my game each month, and I thank you for that.

Special mention, of course, needs to go to our latest teen prodigy, Miss Cat O'Ninetails. Too much talent at such a tender age, and a future PAOTY if I've ever seen one. Well done, sweetie.

Pats on the back to young guys like conqueror, Charnstar, Matthias and Jack W: all who have just grown so much as writers.

And to everyone who competed, veteran or novice, old or young, gorgeous or troll-like, sane or not, I'd just like to say...

(mon dieu, K; this is all starting to sound a bit worthy and self-important. Go on, flash your arse at the gathered crowd)

Yes, funny you should say that - just a week after I posted "Crazy Nong! You Ugly Daft Baboon!" I noticed you lifting your game - and it's been glory ever since ::)

Hey! What happened to the rule that stated that you got 1000 bonus points if you actually participated in all twelwe rounds? That'll make the podium Matthias gold, me silver and The Conqueror bronze! ;)

Jokes aside and congrats to the real podium aside, I'm actually bringing this up to say that I am gonna miss the February round of SOTM (might still read and vote though), hence the longest running consistency streak (that I'm pretty sure was in my corner of the ballpark) now belongs to one of those two guys. Keep it up guys! I'll hope to start another streak next month!

And again congrats to Kristof, Jack and Stu!

Congratufreakinglations, Overlord Kristof.

Like Stu, I gotta admit that I saw this coming way back when. Thanks for the gratuitous nod in your acceptance speech, but you would have won it regardless. Your stuff is consistently stellariffic.

Congrats to Red Jack and Aussie Stu, too, who also won this thing. You deserved it and, more importantly, you look sexy up there on that podium. Grrrowrrr.
