2007 Curmudgeon Awards Announced

The 2007 Curmudegeon Awards were held last night in a glittering event at the bus shelter outside Coles on Angelo Street, South Perth.

The Awards which were established in 2006, recognise the worst and most irritating of several categories arbitrarily made up by the semi-fictional so-called Mr Trivia.

“The Awards were named for a particularly charming trait of mine which is to complain, at length,” Mr Trivia explained last night. The word curmudgeon means apparently means a “mean-tempered old man, given to complaint”. The word was last in vogue at the court of Queen Victoria in the late 19th Century, if we are to believe the Wikipedia.

Results of the Awards are published here at Mr Trivia’s somewhat superfluous site.
