  Man of the Week
Jackasses aside, I would like to dish out a BOE award to Chris Rock if I could glue together a modest and humble (and cheap) one made out of plastic straws with my bare hands for his recent stance on the Oscars. Recently Mr Rock made a comment that "only gays would watch the Oscars". I find quite a lot of truth in the notion of giving out awards for art "idiotic".

"The awards don't really affect anybody's lives in the crowd," Rock said. "Meanwhile, the Nobel Peace Prize, there's no one there. Nobody cares what the scientists are wearing. What are you wearing Professor Allen? 'Pants!' "

The concept of award ceremonies like these are nothing other than regular entertainment and publicity for overly rich, egotistically-pumped up celebrities. Entertainment is entertainment. The King in the medieval ages did not give awards to his jester. These days, it seems entertainers have become the kings, perhaps even greater, an idol for a sea of impressionable teenage youth that stretches to infinity. But the best message I can think of to over-hyped celebs, on acceptance speeches, is said best by Chris the man himself.

"Don't thank God," Rock said. "God's busy working on the tsunami, so leave him alone."
