This is the award we should have been vying for. Elegant in its simplicity and actually funny, Bhetti‘s commendation has singled out In Mala Fide and OneSTDV (a personal favorite) for kudos, but not The Legal Satyricon. What. The. Fuck. I imagine Bardamu is sitting in some swivel chair from Target as he reads this, clumsily dancing and singing along like Eric Cartman does to so many popular songs.
If awards could be so obscure and hilarious, there would have been no need to escalate with John Turley over the ABA competition. Alas, lawyers are boring and uncreative, so it’s no surprise that a Med student pwned us hard.
Then again, with the ubiquity of online trophy ordering for any damn thing, The Legal Satyricon can make its own awards, to the point of devaluing the very idea of trophies. With the demise of formal recognition, a new regime of praise can be ushered in — perhaps Satyricon plaudits, a commodity that can only rise in value. Whatever the case, watch your back, Ferdinand. Haters gonna hate.
