2nd Ever Daily Dropbear Blog Weird Monthly Prizes Award of Excellence

Lord Dropbear the Squeamish

I’m very excited to announce the winners of the “2nd Ever Daily Dropbear Blog Weird Monthly Prizes Award of Excellence” awards. There were a lot of pieces of paper and next month I might need a bigger hat, but without further ado:

From MichaelDargie.com, Larry Stanleigh; and from Medium.com, Mickey Mellen. Congratulations, I will be sending both of you an “official” email today and will then send off your weird (and strangely wonderful) prizes shortly thereafter. The prizes will be revealed on my website once you receive them.

In other news, I finally figured out how to conjure a horse-yak out of my butt in “Elden Ring,” so now I can travel to far-away lands to get killed much faster. And I also found a quest to win back a castle that involves still more dying. Not only is this castle in disrepair, but it is also filled with Rodents of Unusual Size, fire-throwing zombies, and a Black Knight who can stab through walls.

Don’t even get me started about the swamp filled with dung-eating fart monsters and giant crabs who hate me on a personal level.

I’m convinced that my character in this game needs to have his own storyline, told from his perspective — his name is “Lord Dropbear the Squeamish,” and his stories are the stuff of legend. Well, minor legend. He believes he’s heroic, and a skilled swordsman, but his go-to combat move so far is “flail in the face of danger,” which often involves jumping and rolling around while accidentally stabbing everything but his opponent.

Once again, art imitates life.
