Okay people, I need your help

A Novel Woman, AKA Pamela (that's me!) needs your vote. And I apologize in advance. Truly. But I cannot resist the challenge of coming up with a silly poem. Can't. Do. It.

I (cough) occasionally procrastinate and visit a blog called Go Fug Yourself. On this blog, the lovely duo of Heather and Jessica skewer those celebrities who don their gay apparel and walk among us mere mortals thinking they look oh so fab. What the fugly girls do is, to quote my grandmother, "bring them down a peg or two."

What means this word fug, I hear some of you ask. From the site:

""Fug" comes from "fugly," which is a contraction of "fantastically ugly" (or an f-word more prurient, if you like, but we are clean and delightful young ladies who don't engage in that kind of filth, dammit)."

Now comes the favour. Every Friday, they have a contest and ask for silly rhymes to go with a photo. I will warn you, this photo is a bit risque, unless you're a breast-feeding mother in which case it's old hat. This week I made the final three. Whoo hoo!

Your vote counts. So if you'd like to support A Novel Woman, go to the link below and vote for Number Two by Pamela (that's me) unless you prefer one of the other two poems, in which case, do the honorable thing and vote for them. (Damn my morals!) You must vote by Wednesday!

Are there big prizes involved? Uh, no.

Remember, this is not safe for work. And this site is seriously addictive.

Go HERE to vote.

I voted for you :) I thought it was quite clever.

I originally got the link for your google reader feed, I think? is the link.

Took forever to load, but I did the vote thing!

A Novel Woman said...

Yay! Thanks gals.

Uh Jeanie, aren't you supposed to be, you know, "visiting Copenhagen"?

Lottery Girl said...

OMGosh!!!! You are so talented! Fabulous photos, fantastic writing, and funny nipple poetry! Or is it funny poetry about nipples?

Anyway, you got my vote and a blurb on my blog.

Good luck!

A Novel Woman said...

Oh, Lottery Girl, I know I could count on you! I think the first poem is a lock! (I'd like to think everyone has a nipple poem in them.)

jeanie said...

Nah - about to go and visit the travel agent about that ;)

Linda G. said...

LOL! I voted for you. Of course. It was the best!

So, are you going to add this one to your Ode to a Penis, maybe devote a whole volume of poetry to naughty body parts? I can see possibilities here...

Diane T. said...

Of course I voted for yours! (Had to wait till the boys left for school before bringing it up on screen.)

I was very surprised, though, when I saw that #1 was in the lead. Number 1? That's the least clever, most pedestrian one! So if you don't win, Pamela, it's clearly not an issue of talent or quality. You go girl!

A Novel Woman said...

Ah, you guys. (blush) Diane, your my new BFF.

Jeanie, good luck with your "travel agent" and here's hoping your trip to Copenhagen is smooth and quick.

Linda, the world is not ready for my body part odes, methinks!

Debby said...

You are tooooo funny!

A Novel Woman said...

Ack, I can't believe I put "your" instead of "you're"! ACK.

Typo. It was a TYPO people!

Not without reason
Safe in the knowledge you rock
For you, I voted.

Work can be so frustrating.

A Novel Woman said...

Ah, Brenda, you is like, so loyal eh, and methinks you must enter next time.
