The Best thing since Sliced Bread
The 10th annual webby awards are not for the faint of heart. The Webbys are best enjoyed by intelligent people. Contrary to popular oppinion the Webbys were actually named after a Minnesota high school English teacher named Gail Weber for her amazing intelligence and poise. The Webbys get my vote and are worth your time. Holla' Back, Mikel Gustafo
