Hmm... Skip is no longer here at CPS. There could be a new "Most Likely to be Found Without Pants at Any Given Moment" winner!

I move that the committee consider posthumous awards as most of our good ones are no longer with us.

That is what he is saying.
As the currently reigning (and likely never to be repeated) BRATASS of the year, and since I was told when receiving my tiara, sash and bouquet of giant hogweed that I would be representing BRATASSes at shopping mall, Blockbuster Video and bowling alley closings, Superfund site designations, sewer plant cleanings and such for this entire year . . .

I feel I must speak on Mr. McP’s behalf if not in his defense, for there is no defense to be made. The crime has been confessed. Instead, I ask for mercy,

This is a man of impeccable taste. He knows and loves briar, as any decent man would. He knows, smokes and even blends tobacco - he is a maven’s maven. A pipe and tobacco gourmand’s gourmand.

Who among us has never smoked a cOB?
Even as a youth? Answer honestly. God sees your heart.

Yes, Johnny has admitted to falling into sin. But where is our forgiveness? Our own, searching, inward look?
Let he who is without sin cast the first cOB.
Picking up a stone as I have yet to smoke a corn cob pipe . . . . but alas, I have smoked the Swisher Sweets as a young one and that is like the cob of the cigar world so I will repent of my judgement.
I don’t know how I’m just now seeing this, but it gave me a chuckle. I am unabashedly unrepentant, although I love a good Briar, I am a true believer that cobs have their place in the pipe world, for me some tobaccos even smoke better in a cob. To many of you this may elicit a gasp! To that I can only say... COB NATION FOREVER!

I nominate Pope Francis for most likely to frustrate me in the theology forum. Good guy. Dont understand where he's coming from.

I'd also like to see two new categories: a Bob vs. Tuttle Memorial Slap Fight Award for Outstanding Loss of Cool and a Least Likely to Let a Complete and Utter Lack of Interest Kill Off a Thread He Started.

Based off of: Most Likely to Demand Definitions in order to Better Disagree

I think that we need to clarify what we are looking for in the honored positions we are voting for. I propose that the winners of the 2017 awards provide a short statement describing how they were selected and what they have done this year to be worthy of the reward again. Obviously, if they are seeking a different award, they should announce the category they are running for in 2018. Please keep your entries to less than nine pages.

My definition of vegan is the dictionary definition, which merely means a person who consumes no animals for food, which sounds like a basic enough concept to me. You're using a different definition from what I can tell:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/vegan:

a strict vegetarian who consumes no food (such as meat, eggs, or dairy products) that comes from animals

It sounds like you're talking about "veganism" as some type of cultural trend, fad diet, or otherwise, which to me doesn't have much in the way of bearing on the discussion, since all of those things would merely be tertiary to veganism, rather than "veganism" by the bare bones definition.

(e.x. How one reacts to mice being killed wouldn't have any relevance when it comes to discussing whether or not one should kill or eat mice).

Well sir, the topic is about the ethics of eating meat, not "vegans I've known as people" or "fad vegan diets", so if pointing out a definition keeps things on the real focus, that seems like a good move to me.
