The 2014 Cherdo Awards

As I lay tilted and secure in the comfort of my mid-range priced leather recliner, the televised Emmy Awards seemed to be lacking some serious categories that are important to me. Who can fill that void?  The 2014 Cherdo Awards can, that's who!

Before I proceed, may I point out the fact that the Cherdo award is the only official statuette that dares to have batwing arms, back fat, and super butt. Wings were not ornamental, but necessary to realistically allow the golden lady to lift herself to one tippy toe foot.

The current Emmy statuette has an eating disorder; it's scandalous. Her wings look like rock 'em, sock 'em robot controllers...not that I'm bitter.

The Cherdos' categories may be more specific than the Emmys, but we strive to acknowledge the extraordinary.

Best Acting, Drama - I'll Die if You Don't Let Me Out Episode:
Coco the Wonder Dog (this could also count as an outstanding whirling Dervish-type dance number).

Best Acting, Drama Series - Ignoring the Dog
Every male in my living room. I love the sincere commentary: "Oh...did she want out?"

Best Supporting Actor, Animal:
Charlie (does he really have to do anything?). If that face doesn't scream "I support you," I don't know what does...and you know it's an act.

Best Acting - Comedy Series: Pretending the Dog Constantly Needs a Walk
Every little girl who visits me. The acting is very convincing. Have at it, girls; I don't care if you walk my dog a hundred times. We're good.

Best Acting - Comedy: "I Didn't Know This Needed to Go in the Dishwasher" Episode:
Gonzo the Teenager...so convincing. You almost believe that he didn't know where dirty dishes go OR that we put them in the dishwasher every time they are dirty. Classic.

Best Stand Up While Sitting Down:
Shady Dell Knight, host of Shady Dell Music & Memories. Persistently punny posts.

Outstanding Original Song:  
Tie: Hubzam's "Yak Smack Be-bop Boop Boo Deedle Doop" and Hubzam's "Cherdo is the Queen of America Song."  Both are enthusiastically performed each time Hubzam feels something needs to fill the dead air space. Special acknowledgement for including all the words to the song in the title.

Outstanding Achievement in Sound Mixing: 
Whoever is in the downstairs bathroom right now...amazing...sliding the award under the door. Don't come out...really, it's fine. I wish the name "Game of Thrones" wasn't already taken.

Outstanding Achievement in Information Programming:
Hubzam - Dinner Table Lawn Mowing Review for Teens. I wish the name "True Detectives" wasn't already taken.

Best Commentator - Reality According to Juggernaut:
Juggernaut. It's a thing of beauty, really. You don't stop him because you want to see how far he will go. It's like watching a shuttle launch.

Outstanding Video Journalism:
Magoo's 3 Minute Magic Demos (they are really fascinating). Extra credit for the fact that the viewer will keep watching it over and over, all while saying, "What in the world...how did he do that?"

Congrats, peeps and pups. Everybody, we're off to the after party! 


  1. Great statue. Thumbs up on that. The winners are stunning pooches.

    1. Thanks, Medeia...the whole business is going to the dogs, as far as I can tell. Which would be a step in the right direction.

    Good morning, dear Cherdo!
    Shady is the new black and I'm breaking bad.

    I applaud you for designing a realistic award statuette that resembles a plus size woman. My annual Shady Awards are coming soon and the trophy I present will be an exact replica of wrestling great Haystacks Calhoun.

    I want to thank you for bestowing upon me the coveted Cherdo Award for Best Stand Up While Sitting Down and I also want to acknowledge all the little people (the Munchkins and Lilliputians) that I stepped on, screwed over and whose dreams I crushed as I clawed (and slept) my way to the top.

    "There's no business like show business."

    I can relate to the hassles surrounding dogs with bursting bladders. Our Cocker Spaniel Toto was quite an accomplished actress. Every 5 minutes she'd sit by the door with an urgent expression on her face pretending to need a potty break. If we fell for her act and took her out, 9 times out of 10 all she wanted to do was sniff the ground and follow the scents of other dogs, cats and squirrels.

    Thanks for the smiles and the award, dear friend Cherdo, and have a terrific Tuesday!

    1. Big Bang Theory fan? Of course you are! I now realize we are possibly siblings separated at birth. I'd say twins, but there's no reason to insult you, now is there?

      My dog is just a great actress on so many levels. She basically runs the place. The other dog belongs to my friend, SM, and it is just too cute. Surely, no one would begrudge a dog an award for being ridiculously cute - we are not savages.

      Kick back and celebrate your Tuesday - all hail, SDK!

  3. I knew something was missing at the Emmy Awards. It was YOU! I'm so glad you've made the awards world complete, and I hope my comment doesn't disappear.


    1. Ha ha ha. Janie, Janie, Janie....what am I to do with you...


  4. Just stopped by to see if my comment is still here, and there I am.

    Love again,

    1. Still lovin' ya right back. To recap: I did not delete you, ha ha ha.

    2. I know you didn't delete me, but why do I disappear so often? The same thing has happened to some followers at my blog. I thought they were nuts when they asked where their comments went.

  5. Aww. That second dog looks like mine in the face. Mine is part King Charles Spaniel, which I think is what that dog is!

  6. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing blog that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. placas de vidrio


Thanks for your personal yada, yada, yada,
Love, Cherdo
