  • 2016 Envies

    Is everyone ready for the return of the Irish Envy Envies? We'll use this thread for category nominations and general discussion. Tuesday night I will start threads for the individual categories we will vote on and those will be open for nominations until next Sunday. The voting will take place the following week and winners will be announced shortly after.


    These are the Envies we've done in the past if anyone wants to check them out:

        I think some of us are just okay with moving on from '16 and pretending like the year never happened.

            Definitely glad to have these back. Necessary to offseason survival!

              Best politician needs to be back too. In honor of it being an election year though I think we should call it the "Most Presidential" award.

                        I feel like this has lost its luster from past years...maybe because I don't post as much as I used to.

                                  WAG is always an uncomfortable category because I find it weird that guys are telling other guys their wives are smoking hot...

                                  However, it needs to be in for the reason, my favorite thing is Koon saying his girl is a lock, posting pics then getting destroyed by someone else's woman... its hilarious

                                    The WAG competition dropped it's popularity after year one when I won it (the irony being that I originally said I wouldn't be entering my girlfriend at the time into the competition). There were like 15 submissions that year. The next year only had three contestants and Calvegas blew Koon outta the water.

                                    The shame was that everybody's girl was gorgeous in their own right, and admittedly the concept was kinda sheisty to the women who went neglected.

                                        I could really blow that out of the water if I were given an exemption and could post my daughters. Three would make the finals. Why three when I have four daughters? One would so kick my ass if I tried that with her that it wouldn't be funny.

                                            People ask me why my older daughter scares me so much more than the others : to quote a guy I drank in the bar with when we were each going through divorces a while back, (when I asked him what scared him about his wife, when she always seemed so sweet,) he replied after contemplating his glass for a couple of seconds, "She's the kind of woman, when you piss her off, she doesn't say anything, anything at all. But, the next morning when you wake up, your dick is taped to your forehead!"

                                                            I thought Vancouver was Trinity as the Holy Spirit.

                                                              I think I object to this one as I cant forget the Most Overated Poster one from a few years back. It was not a good idea IMO. This could be gery similar.

Bunch of bigoted, misbamanistic, xenophobic, Nazi bastards! I get an award this year or there are gonna be riots and I swear I'll trash a Starbucks. No Envie, no peace!

Might be best just to list every posters handle that has posted in the last year in each poll. That way those whose feelings get hurt, will at least have a participation trophy.
