Well, sort of new. Remember the Rowan & Martin show…? Goldie Hawn got her start there. Some guy popping out from behind a potted palm wearing a World War Two German military helmet saying: “Very interesting. But not funny.” Y’know – Laugh-In?

I liked bits and pieces of that show, including the weekly “Fickle Finger of Fate Award.” The hosts would come across something insane, something they felt we should know about, something to let the perps know that we all knew what they’d said or done.

The NEW Fickle Finger of Fate Award
The NEW Fickle Finger of Fate Award

Thus, on the verge of the Federal Government’s Speech from the Throne (read by the Gov-General but really an edict from the Prime Minister’s Office) and the Conservative Government’s Budget… I hereby unveil the “Number One” Award (aka the NEW Fickle Finger of Fate Award).

I suspect we already know who’s the odds-on favourite to snag this first offering, but why don’t we keep it between Price-Waterhouse-Cooper and the Academy for the time being.

Just know that whoever is the lucky recipient from hence – YOU will forever be NUMBER ONE in our books.

Suggestions for future recipients most welcome. Let’s make this a weekly event, so keep those suggestions coming.
