Leaky Vision has been baby sitting the trophy for us since J2K's tenure as toastee somewhat officially ended.  Leaky actually is a toastee, but there was no show to commemorate the passing of the trophy to him.  So, we'll work on getting the little guy returned, and once that's accomplished, we'll reinitiate the toasting process.  Our long pause in production has actually been a test to see who's really worthy, hanging in there with us long after there is any reasonable motivation to do so.  There are a number of deserving candidates remaining, and the insanely long wait will surely make the achievement that much sweeter when it finally comes around. 

We'll keep you posted!

I was wondering if that little bastard was still on the lamb in the UK.  Good to know he's still around.

I don't even remember at this point... Shit-ho was replaced, yea?  What does this one look like?  Did it get a name? I'm sure there were pictures, but I can't recall.  Poor thing's gonna come back talking all funny and asking for bangers and mash.  But kudos to LV for keeping him safe.

Yeah, "Shit Ho" is in pieces in a box in a closet in Studio A.  Enough prepositions in that sentence for it to have been about Angostura Bitters. 

The new trophy has been revealed here in photos, at the moment I'm not sure where, but it's a terrific piece of glass work by Clarence Maloy.  Heavy as hell.  You could kill someone with it.  But it's gorgeous and you can drink out of it.

Ah yes... now I recall it.  Nice work on Malloy's part!

Having sent shit around the world... I hope you used the USPS...  FedEx would have charged 80 bucks to send that overseas!

And the now defunct DHL, though less pricey, would have had the delivery guy standing literally at the doorstep of the address, looking for the recipient's name (which was clearly right there), then sent it back to the local DHL office for a fucking week and a half before actually getting the delivery straightened out.

...That's just my fun little experience with DHL.  May they rot in whatever mail hell they were sentenced to. 

...Not that I'm bitter or hold grudges or anything.   ...Just sayin'...

DHL was a joke.  Not a single positive experience with those folks and oddly, the Olympics chose to use them for everything.  Being the savvy shopper I am I was aware that FedEx was not my only option.  There is a post office in Low Point, I'd been there before, so of course utilizing their service leapt to mind immediately when faced with the task of shipping the trophy overseas.  It cost something in the $40+ neighborhood.

Bring the Trophy back home.  I can't believe I am typing on technology that's five or so years older than the previous post. From my garage. It's like living in the future.  God DAMNit

Haha.. you're too generous.  I've already got a kidney on eBay that should cover most of it.  I'll get in touch with Leaky and see about making a rescue plan.  Ironically, I think its citizenship has changed now, so there's going to be a bunch of paperwork involved.
