We like to end things on a positive note. That’s why 2009 was capped with not only our annual Platinum Chalice Awards, but also a whole week’s worth of celebratory articlestalking about the accomplishments of the past decade. Now though, with ’09 safely out of range for a retaliatory strike, we can piss all over the idiotic, baffling and just plain dumb occurrences that peppered our otherwise fine year.
Each unlucky winner walks away with a specialized trophy that encapsulates the worst aspects of the year; previous trophies included a bronzed Imagine Baby and a winged Red Ring of Death. This time, everyone gets their very own Tony Hawk Ride board.
Eat it, last year.
