THE POTY 2018

 

So, here we are again,

Riders donning leather breeches, bearing whips and false promises,

As they line up for what can only be described as a gruelling marathon of epic proportions.

Newbies are full of optimism, while the veterans avoid the nasty lines, hoping to avoid being the subject of dirt digging, as they all jostle for position.

Tis a time for discovering heroes, and a platform that sees reputations torn to shreds, as lie upon lie is uncovered.

 

While one must feel sorry for the contestants, your heart should go out to the poor voter – wading his way through untruths and nasty rumours, desperate to find a candidate who will be worthy of the crown.

Very much like the Thai political circles, the masses have no idea what is really going on, and as always, vote buying is the norm. Candidates who are laden with flower garlands, bearing false promises and knowing smiles, shake the hands of anyone who is willing to listen to their empty words.

 

As for the candidates, they have their work cut out swaying the TV voters, who go to the ballot boxes in hope of selecting a worthy winner.

 

Will there be revelations this year? Candidates desperately try to cover up prior misdemeanours, looking as pious as is possible, hoping that their indiscretions remain firmly buried, yet there are always secrets uncovered.

Trans has almost completed his term as POTY holder this year, weary from the endless trips into the provinces, supporting worthy causes and generally setting a good example. It would be fitting if our crowned warbler would make a speech, highlighting the best moments of his tenure, helping the new winner to prepare for what can only be described as a test of strength.

Only time will tell.

As is customary at around this time, I post a poem, so here goes ......

 

THE QUEST FOR A WINNER

Posting goes on day after day,

Members send out their messages in their own unique way,

Some are funny, while others rude

Indeed, nothing can you exclude.

 

Comments that inform, advice that is heeded,

A worthy poster is indeed needed.

And to wear the coveted crown of POTY

Some would simply die!

 

Its all up to you in this chilly December

To do the right thing and select a TV member

A person we can all toast

Or perhaps, the one who pays the most!

 

Vote carefully, and try not to be swayed

By the stream of allegations made

Kidnapped cats and nobbled bikes

Immoral goings on during country hikes.

 

Witchcraft and sorcery abound,

People lost, never to be found,

As morality is given temporary leave,

While candidates look to deceive.

 

Whoever is crowned, one thing’s for sure,

You and I will remain poor,

And this illusion of choice

Is why the powers rejoice

 

Vote with passion and without fear,

As you select your ideal Poster of the Year!

I guess it is luck of the draw....like the Champions league - you don’t want to be grouped with Barcelona.

 

Not it that I am comparing Colinneil with the Spanish champions..... he is from Preston for goodness sake.

Messy, rather than Messi.

Personally, I think messy is a very apt adjective to describe what we are witnessing here ....

I am a tad disappointed, to say the least. I expected 4 groups and each group to be seeded. The top 2 in each group then go forward to a proper final. It seems to me that the organisers are F1 fans rather that footy fans.

 

On top of that Rc's cartel group of block voting, to get a footy poster the crown, cannot now materialise.

 

I also not that bbi1 is not in the line up.

Just heard that Baboon is having a fundraising dinner. 30 million per table and bring as many family members as you like!

Unfortunately the Mother in Law is cooking. I have raised 3 Baht so far....

 

In Memoriam Les Dawson. 1959 - 1993. The last year anything was any good...

Bit boring this year, isn't it? Mods, where do I stand on telling offensive and bare-faced lies about other candidates?

One must first check one's own closet, thoroughly

Yes, so far we're seeing the dribbling, but no doubt the shooting will begin shortly.

Well 'Colin' isn't all he seems to be for a start. Just saying....

Given the topic, given the occasion, nothing wrong with some lighthearted banter. 😀

 

Latitude will be given, but forum rules still apply.

Sorry, but you said you were OK with offensive and bare-faced lies. I am holding you to your word... (evil grin)

Hey Baboon, any chance of you becoming a Brexiteer ?

 

 

I don’t fall for lies, but my vote can be bought.......😲

You could be right Baboon, i am a lazy old fart, never walk anywhere, sit on my butt all day, then bugger off on my bed and let the wife take care of things.

On TV all day or just lounging in my chair reading.:cheesy:😜😱

And I am sure that accusations of your having ISIS connections are entirely false...

Seriously, he was a grumpy old bar steward in 2007 and he remains the same today.

 

He is the real deal, like it or not.

 

 

Becoming paraplegic has not changed that; what it has changed is his humility and values. He now has a genuine caring for people - unless  those people happen to be one of his Thai in laws! 🙂

 

 

I am proud to call him my friend.

Or, IIRC, a female 'expat'?

Charming....

But fairly accurate?

 

I think some of us have been here too long, and so remember various posters attitudes on certain topics.

 

Billd776 is the only genuinely 'nice' person I recognise from the list?

Billd766 didn't even know that he was nominated in any group and still has no idea what the difference between groups 1, 2 and 3 is.

 

Thank you to all 3 of my fans who nominated me whoever they are.

Same here 😃!  I remembered a touch late about POTY - but that's the problem with being retired 😊.
