Rewarding bigotry

I just HAD to comment on this story!

Lodges and members of the Orange Order are in line for the inaugural Orange Oscar awards.

"These Orange Oscars have been designed specifically for those lodges and individuals who work so hard behind the scenes to further the Order's religious and cultural aims, often with little recognition outside their own district," said Dr David Hume, the Order's director of services.

What a great idea! I mean we all know that the Orange Order is a society that's based on vile bigotry but we don't actually know WHO the biggest bigots are! You won't believe this, but I've actually managed to grab a sneak peek (cough) at some of the proposed nominations for these 'Orange Oscars'. Let's have a look at some of the categories:

- Best bigot
- Best pipe bomb thrower
- Best supporting pipe bomb thrower
- Best animated rant
- Best mayhem director
- Best foreign bashing
- Best chant
- Best story (told to the media)
- The Dr Paisley Special Achievement award (Dawson Bailie's hotly tipped!)

I'm not sure who the presenter is though. It ought to be someone who captures perfectly what the Orange Order stands for. I suggest Maurice 'Gay's not the way' Mills. He'd be great!

As long as the ceremony isn't too glamorous of course!

The only gripe I have is with the name. Orange Oscars? That's lame. Let's come up with a catchier title. Based on the Orange Order's rioting earlier this year and the attacks they carried out on the Police, I suggest - The Kablammies!

What do you think?
