well folks, another year has passed and another epoch has been marked on the calendars of our e-hearts. i woke up this morning with a phone call from my agent . he usually doesn't call this early so i knew something was up. "sir, please open newgrounds this instant." i scramble out of bed and run 3 feet to my desk where i will spend the rest of my life. and there it was, a PM from the man himself - tom fulp.
"Congratulations, team of Metal Gear Funnies. You have all been selected as the winners of the 2008 Tank Awards!"
i won't go into much more detail as i'm sure the presses are already rolling - but let's put it this way. the video on the fp is, you guessed it, a prank. the real winners will be announced soon. and since you're dying to know what they are right now, i'll go ahead and spill the beans:
movie of the year: Metal Gear Funnies - doesn't get more epic than a 30+ user collaboration of some of the most classic laughs that will certainly be remembered for generations to come due to its relevance in society.
game of the year: Sneaky Snake's Adventure - learn how to type and have fun in this retro-style game with a unique physics engine designed specifically for exploding snakes.
musician of the year: redmongoose - with swingin' samples from the speakeasy's of the 1920's fused with fresh beats from the wired generation, there's nothing more diverse than the music of redmongoose.
user of the year: Shaun McGlinn - a man who changed an entire generation by making "look at my dick!" a household catchphrase from the high-rise condos of bustling cities down to the humble farm homes of the midwest.
here are two of the trophies from this year ready to be shipped out. congratulations, winners !
