Caught 22

Welcome to Dude Write!

We are thrilled to have you here, whether you are a Writer Dude, a Blogger Dude, a Reader Dude or a Fanatic of good writing. If you've stumbled upon us via a link and wondering what you've gotten yourself into, our Mission Statement should explain it all.

Women are pretty powerful.

They have all of these abilities that can bring even the toughest cowboy to his knees.  Even at the youngest ages, they are already perfecting their puppy dog eyes.

Then there are extremely powerful bitches, like Hurricane Sandy (I think it is safe to use the "B" word to describe her), who end up becoming just another one of America's problems.

Some just express their power through psychotic means, following and stalking us until we finally break down.

And some of the sane ones actually make insane decisions that we can't believe, like agreeing to marry us, despite the fact that we can't choose a mattress, put our underwear on backwards, or don't know how to use semicolons.

And with that, we shall reveal the results.

Our latest inductee into the Diamond Club is Jimmy for his hilarious post "No Longer Firm" in which he describes the adventure of trying to find the perfect mattress.

Congrats, and head on over to the Diamond Club to link up!

This week, our Platinum Man Card goes to Youngman Brown for his post "Confession; I Don't Understand Semicolons," unless of course they are a part of a winky-face emoticon ;)

And this week's Gold Man Card goes to Daniel Nest for his post "The Sandy Conspirathon," where we are given a better look into what really caused Hurricane Sandy.

There are three Chairman's Choice awards this week. Bryan from Bryan Jones' Diary who won our week 21 competition gets to weigh in this week..

Bryan said, "As always it was a tough decision. I liked the Chubby Chatterbox tale of how he lost his usual self-control and called his son's God-mother a rude name. And if I was a romantic (which I'm not) Defying Procrastination would have won by a country mile for his considered marriage proposal. But my honorary Chairman's vote for Week 22 goes to Random Guy for his 'Surprise Package'. Straddling his lady wife to show her that his boxers are on back-to-front, you can't get smoother than that!"

Michael Walker said, "As always, some great choices this week. However, my Chairman's goes to Chubby Chatterbox, for his brilliant execution of 'Justifying the 'B' Word.'

Youngman Brown said, "The moderators agreed to not give each other our Chairman Choices, but I am going to break the rules without even asking them, and award my Man Card to Michael Walker for his post 'She Said Yes.'  I had a beaming smile after reading this post, not only because of your recounting of a wonderful night, but also for the wonderful future you have laid out in front of you.  Congrats on the Man Card, but more importantly congrats on the engagement!"

Finally, we have our "Color Commentator" Man Card, which is awarded to someone who we spotted making a particularly exceptional comment on another dude's post.

This week, we're giving two Man Cards, both for comments on "Surprise Package?"

The first goes to Stephen Hayes for saying: "Fun post; I'm sending you a mental wedgie."

And the second goes to Joe for saying: "Just go commando and you'll never have that problem again."

Congratulations to all of the new Man Card winners this week. If you didn't get yours this week, come back again on Thursday and try again!
