Snow White, Some Dwarfs and The Hubnugget Team
Is it possible for a prince to lose his charm?
Once upon a time in a galaxy not so far away, Snow White decided that she had had enough of her Prince Charming and the rest of her “Charming” in-laws, that she decided to take a sabbatical and go back to the woods to visit her old friends…the seven dwarfs. She didn’t tell them she was coming as they didn’t have mail, computers telephones, email, fax machines or any modern day appliances and since it was hard to get a hold of a courier, she just decided to just show up at the dwarfes’ house and take her chances that they would be home.
Where are my little friends?
Snow White finally arrived and opened the door and to her surprise she found the dwarfes were not there but in their stead were strangers to Snow White. She demanded to know what they were doing there and why.
The strangers introduced themselves as the Hubnugget team from Hubpages, and that they were sent into the woods to clear their minds, and to choose this weeks hubs for the hubnugget nominees. The peace and quiet of the woods always helped in the hubnugget process.They found the charming house empy and didn't think anyone lived there. They introduced themselves as Patty Inglish, Enelle Lamb, Ripplemaker, Koffeeklatch gals, RedElf and Zsuzsy Bee.
They had quite a task ahead of them, and didn't want any distractions, so they warned Snow White as pleasantly as you please, that if she was going to hang around, that she would have to keep very quiet, and stop all that unrelentless singing, which was quickly getting on everyone's nerves. Not to mention all the chirping of the birds that were hanging around Snow White. The team was sure that the dwarfs wouldn't mind some unexpected visitors as well.
Just then the dwarfes could be heard marching home singing as they marched to their favorite tune….”Hi HO Hi HO la la la la la
When the seven dwarfes saw Snow White and the Hubnugget team, they were shocked and asked what she was doing there after basically abandoning them to run off with her famous prince. Snow White apologized for not keeping in touch, and for not sending thank you notes for the wedding gifts, but promised to make it up to them, by cleaning and cooking for them, just as she had done in the past. The dwarfes were a litte skeptical of the Hubnugget team but finally agreed......except maybe.....
Always a Grump in the crowd!
Grumpy, who couldn’t understand the whole Hubnugget process and what it was even for. Well Ripplemaker kindly did her best to explain to Grumpy that being chosen as a hubnugget wannabe encourages new writers on the Hubpages site to want to continue to write, and keeps them motivated to write more and more hubs. He reluctantly agreed, but insisted on being able to watch, which because of the kindness of the team, who took pity upon him, he was able to participate. You see the hubnuggets wannabes are only able to be picked by certain “elite” members and no one else, this would be the only exception. But of course all the dwarfes butted in as well and the continuous achooing’ by sneezy was making it almost impossible to keep all the pages together.
Finally the task at hand was finished by the team, and some frolicking ensued in the form of dancing, singing, and passing around the whiskey bottle; everyone seemed to be having a great time. Just then a frigid, harsh wind blew open the door, and there stood the wicked old witch that wanted Snow White dead, and demanded the hubnugget wannabe nominees or she would kidnap Snow White. The team looked at each other and it was quite obvious that they were all thinking this would be a nice trade off, as Snow White was really annoying, but they couldn't do that to the nice dwarfs that have been so nice to them, and who seemed to really care about Snow White.
In the meantime, Snow White is admiring herself in the magic mirror and asking it who the fairest one of all is. This set me into a frenzy; I grabbed the mirror away from Snow White and said, “Would you stop being so narcissistic and pay attention, your life is in danger here lady”. Snow White looked at me as perplexed as she could look and asked, “What’s narcissistic’? The wicked witch just laughed and took hold of all the hubnuggests and flew out the window, the way she came. Everyone looked so unhappy after all the work that they had done. Ennelle Lamb said to Snow White, “You know for being someone who has been famous for years, and who has managed to snag herself a Prince, you certainly aren’t the sharpest knife in the drawer are you? Snow White replied with, “ Listen here, in my fairytale, and mind you missy, this is my fairytale, girls don’t have to be smart, just beautiful". The hubnugget team just looked down and shook their heads wondering how they ever got in this fairytale in the first place, and how they would ever get those golden nuggets back.
Meanwhile back at the ranch:
RRRing, RRRing, oh my I wake up to the sound of my telephone ringing, I think to myself that I have had a doozy of a dream, and finally manage to pick up the phone. It is Maddie Ruud and she just wants to let me know that the hub nuggets have all been nominated and are ready to be voted on………ahhhh what a relief, the hub nuggets are safe once again and it’s a good thing because that dream seemed so real, and suddenly I got this strange overpowering urge for a big, fat juicy apple…hmmm
After talking with Maddie I go over to my magic mirror and say Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?. My mirror just looks back at me and says, “Not this again, how often am I gonna have to stroke your ego Ladyjane1, because it certainly wasn’t in the job description?
Whatever, magic mirror whatever!!
Okay magic miror, I’ll be serious.
Mirror mirror on the wall

Pick the hub nugget and not in jest
But pick the one you think is best
Commence with the voting Ladyjane and we shall see which hub will reign!
What is a Hubnugget Wannabe?
Anyone who has just joined Hubpages may be wondering what a Hubnugget wannabe is, especially if they are nominated for this most prestigious award. Well someone who has been nominated for the award most likely has written a very well written hub. They also have only been on Hubpages for less than 60 days, and they have a hubber score of 75 or higher. The hub also needs to have a score of 55 or better.
So why you may ask would be the advantage of winning the Hubnugget award? Well, your hub would be viewed by hundreds of other hubbers, which would result in lots of traffic to your hub and get your name out there for others to see and possibly be a follower of yours, which in turn results in you getting more page views. You would also be featured in the Hubpages newsletter for that week.
It helps to make sure that you write a hub that is more than 500 words or so, not too long, but I never write anything less than 500 words at least. Make sure to utilize all the capsules that Hubpages has to offer, such as video, photos, and the link capsules in order to make your hub pleasant and interesting to read. Make sure your video and photos are relevant to your hub.
Make sure that you promote your hub as much as you can and by all means vote for yourself if you like, and get all your friends and family to vote for you even if they aren’t members of Hubpages, they can still vote.
