Yes, folks, its time to follow in the grand tradition of the Kentucky Colonels and name some folks Captains of the All Arkie Army.
"Kentucky Colonel? Captain of the All Arkie Army? What the hell are you talking about, The Hawg?"
Well, the state of Kentucky has, for years, bestowed the honorary title of Colonel of those individuals who have done something to significantly improve the culture of the Bluegrass State. You had such notable individuals as Tom Parker (Elvis' manager) Colonel Sanders (the chicken guy) and even Muhammed Ali (he floated like a butterfly, stung like a bee!) was honored with the title of Kentucky Colonel.
One fascinating thing about the Kentucky Colonel honor is that one doesn't have to be from the state of Kentucky to receive it. Yes I, The Hawg, have long dreamed of being a Kentucky Colonel.
But, I digress...
So, we're doing something similar at the All Arkie Army. There are certainly bloggers out there that we members of the Army enjoy -- individuals who have improved the blogosphere significantly.
Let's give them a nice, no-strings-attached award, huh? Let's show our appreciation by naming them Captains in the All Arkie Army and presenting them with the dandy award posted here? This is an award that says, "You're just a fine blogger" and doesn't require them to pass it around or anything like that. It's a simple token of appreciation.
The floor, then, is open for nominations. I ask all members of the All Arkie Army, then, to pick some bloggers that you like and post them in the comments section or e-mail links to their blogs to me if you're shy. We'll take nominations for a few days and then vote.
Remember, we're not looking for any members of the All Arkie Army and nominees don't necessarily have to be Arkansas citizens. These are just people we like.
Get cracking, folks, and let's honor some bloggers!
