The BBB Awards

Updated on March 10, 2014



Let the Show Begin...

Good Morning Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, March 10, 2014. Buzzy, the Proverbial Fly on the Wall, is hosting the BBB Awards this morning. Please join us at the theater. There will be delicious Bloody Marys for breakfast and a presentation that may bring tears to your eyes. See you at the theater.

Welcome, one and all to the BBB Awards. Let's begin the show by awarding our first BBB to the Cleveland Middle School in New Mexico. A student was arrested for audibly burping in class. The teacher called the school resource office, who in turn, called the police. He was charged with "interfering with public education." I would suggest that it is the school authorities and the police who should be charged with interfering with public education.

Imaginary Bow and Arrow


Drop It!

Our second presentation is awarded to the South Eastern Middle School in Fawn Grove, Pennsylvania for suspending a ten year old boy for firing an imaginary bow and arrow at another student. He was accused of breaking the school's regulations on using weapons. I would like to remind the school officials that the bow and arrow wasn't visible because it didn't exist. I don't understand this latest craze that makes non-existent weapons dangerous. Perhaps school officials need a psych evaluation.



Baby, It's Dry and Hot Outside

Let's switch gears now and turn to the always fascinating subject of climate change. Our next award is presented to President Obama for announcing that California's drought problem is the result of global warming. Even the global warming enthusiasts don't agree with his presidential analysis. Mr. President, even a mere fly such as myself, knows that droughts are droughts. They are cyclical in nature and have been around long before Al, the Climate Man, Gore was born.

Moving along in the same vein let's present our next BBB to CBS for telling its viewers that climate change means the end of snow and that winter sports could be doomed. Need we say more on the subject. The statement speaks volumes about the integrity and intelligence of the networks these days.

Our time together is growing short, so let's move things along in rapid fire succession. The navigators of Obamacare have earned this next BBB. When Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) tried to enroll his family in the program things went okay until he discovered that his son ended up being enrolled in Medicaid! Even better, the Senator couldn't straighten things out because the geniuses who are running the show said they weren't sure if his son even existed. Let's not be surprised when Kentucky wins the prize for having the most people enrolled in Medicaid than any other state in the Union.

Switching gears, let's present this next BBB to the Nobel Prize Committee for putting Russian President Vladimir Putin's name on the list of possible winners of the Peace Prize. Need I elaborate?

Whining Millionaires


Income Inequality

Our next BBB is a group presentation going to millionaires in the mainstream media who are beating the drum for a solution to income inequality. This humble fly thinks that Matt Lauer, Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams, George Stephanopoulos, Bob Schieffer and Tom Brokow should spread their incredible wealth around to bring about their dream of income equality. Put your money where your collective mouths are!

Although the explanation of our next BBB may sound like a tongue twister, I can assure you it is the real deal. The Army's top sexual assault prosecutor is accused of sexual assault. If you can say this ten times in a row you win a prize! Lt. Col. Joseph Morse has been suspended from his position as the chief of the Army's Trial Counsel Assistance Program pending an investigation into sexual assault charges.

Let's end this morning's festivities on a lighter note. A Mexican man who came to the United States illegally as a youngster is suing a state agency for discrimination because it refuses to hire him for using a fake Social Security number for nearly a decade. Now here comes the twist in the case. Somehow this man, Victor Guerrero, managed to become an American citizen in 2007. He applied for a job as a prison guard and was turned down because he continued to use a fake Social Security card. In his lawsuit he is seeking the right to work because the policy excluding criminals from being hired violates employment laws and hurts Latino job applicants! I never had a headache in my life, but I have one now!

The BBB Award


Buzzy's Song

Fly me to the moon

And let me lie where I am free

Things are so strange now

The moon is a better place to be!

      Dear Pamela,

      I just read that a 2 year old was suspended from daycare in Canada. The little criminal brought a cheese sandwich to school! The school has a strict "no outside food" policy. See you at the Inn. Dress warm. It's so windy here, I could get blown over there!

      Just when you think you have heard it all, up comes some other outrageous act. These school systems are nuts anymore. Homeschool or private school is really the only acceptable way to give your children a good education. Awesome reward ceremony

      Good Morning FitnezzJim,

      I hadn't thought of that but, all is fair in love, war and insanity! See you at the Inn, where logical thinking is prized.

      Good Morning Walt Kienia,

      You just made my day! See you at the Breakfastpoppers Inn. It exists only in our mind, but it is a great, sane place to be.

      Are those teachers teaching How to win friends and influence people?

      I see a future where disciplinarian teachers get sued for rapping knuckles with an imaginary ruler.

      Dear savvydating,

      When it comes to climate change things are so out of whack that even the co-founder of Greenpeace sees no proof of man-made climate change! Gore must have lost his lunch when he heard that. Thanks for the heads up about the book. I'll see you at the Inn. Buzzy wants you to know that he really would appreciate a Bloody Mary!

      The climate thing drives me crazy. I don't even think Gore believes in it...his religion is money. As for the President, who knows? But I hate that the media only tells part of the story about climate. Well, let's face it, sensationalism sells and people are easily duped. For any of our other "bugged" friends out there who may be interested, a good book is: Climate: The Counter-Consensus - A Palaeoclimatologist Speaks, by Robert M. Carter.

      I'll see you at the Inn, Buzzy. I think I'll have a martini--on the rocks. I'll order you an extra Bloody Mary. After all this news, you might need it.

      Dear Hxprof,

      I appreciate the fact that you still wish to thank me, despite the pathetic collection of "winners." I guess it is important to recognize the "crazies" that walk among us. See you at the Inn. No lunatics allowed!

      Dear Frog Prince,

      Yes, sanity has left the building and it may never return. See you at the Inn where common sense still prevails.

    • breakfastpop profile image

      breakfastpop 4 years ago

      Dear WillStarr,

      Common sense has fled the schools , so we can expect more of the same flawed behavior and reasoning.

      You are, of course, absolutely right. We should be having more, not less rain, but let's not let the facts confuse us!

      Global warming is about re-distribtion of wealth and control. It has precious little to do with climate.

      See you at the Inn. All of this garbage thinking makes the need to relax much more urgent.

      Quite a presentation. The world seems to have gone mad with the US in the lead.

      Discipline in most school classrooms today is so lax that I don't know how a teacher could even hear a burp or spot an imaginary bow with all the noise and turmoil.

      Heat makes ocean water evaporate and form clouds, which then cause rain on land. More heat means more rain, not less. A warmer climate means more tropics.

      The left claims global warming science is settled and we are not scientists so we can't talk about it, but who do they listen to? They listen those great scientists named Al Gore and Barack Obama .

      Good Morning Pino,

      Logic? What is that? I mean I see no evidence that it exists anymore. It certainly doesn't exist in the schools. For sure it doesn't exist in government. I say, let's discuss flying to the moon with Buzzy. It can't be worse than here. See you later. Buzzy can hardly wait to hop on your Pino, Grigio that is!

      POP: I love your awards ceremonies. I get to dress up, drink before noon, and laugh like I am in a comedy club. I hate when Ispill my drink on my gown, though. The issue is that there is no logic anymore. Where did it go? Being a logical thinker, I sometimes think I am on a foreign island where no one understands me. I am off to the Inn, and hope that I see Buzzy on my glass of pino (grigio, that is!).

      Save me a seat.....

      Good Morning carol,

      All of this is just proof that the dumbing down of America is truly happening. I'll see you at the Inn. It's wine for me...

      This life we lead never fails to amaze me. I know there are some justices in life but sometimes you wonder where. See you at the Inn tonite...I think I will have some Port to drink.

      Good Morning Tom,

      All I know is that it is March 10th and I haven't seen my lawn in months. It has been buried under constant snow. See you at the Inn. Global warming people will not gain admittance!

      Good Morning sujaya,

      If you mean join the breakfastpoppers, you already have! See you at the Inn. It may exist only in our minds, but it is loads of fun.

      Good Morning Mike,

      If I ever reach the point where the crazies are my best friends, please shoot me. See you at the Inn. I may perch on your glass for a while if you don't mind.

      Buzzy and Pop,

      I liked the piece on the California drought and global warming. I have been following the 91% freeze over of the Great Lakes, the second largest on record, and waiting for the twisted logic of climate loons to blame global warming for that.

      Good Morning billybuc,

      You have to remember that the inmates are now truly running the asylum. See you at the Inn. It's still sane there.

      Good Morning taxlarry,

      Wouldn't it be great if terrorists carried fake, imaginary weapons? We could arrest them immediately before they hurt anyone! See you at the Inn. Try not to shape your hamburger into a gun. You could be in trouble.

      Buzzy - It has reached the point where no sane person can make any sense out of decisions that are being made today. Situations like you described only make sense to insane persons.

      Be aware that when these things actually begin making sense to you, you have most likely crossed the line and are then one of them.

      I'm laughing but there are tears as well. Twenty years ago I would have believed that you made this stuff up. Now I am convinced that it is the norm in our society. The world has gone crazy and I don't know how to get off. LOL Keep the faith my friend.

      Buzzy, I think the best "winners" are the two schools. Talk about dumbing down of America, these schools are amazingly dumb.! Great awards ceremony!
