Supporting Cast: The Golden Spinach Can Awards!

By Tea Fougner

Everybody here at DailyINK is getting ready for the Oscars (welcome back, Billy Crystal!), and with awards shows on our minds, we thought it would be fun to start giving out some awards of our own. So here it is, ladies and gents, roll out that red carpet and get ready for the Golden Spinach Awards.

We don’t have any PriceWaterhouseCoopers guys to walk in with their fancy briefcases, but we did have the results tabulated on a spreadsheet by our favorite electronic dog. Does that count?

Anyway, take a seat, dim the lights. The envelope, please…

“Most likely to forget his Social Security Number” goes to Zippy of ZIPPY THE PINHEAD

“Most Artful Application of Unwanted Facial Tattoos” goes to The Phantom of THE PHANTOM

“Most annoying know-it-all in the whole world” goes to Margaret Wade of DENNIS THE MENACE
