    I think I might have inadvertently received one of your Arte y Pico awards as a part of an award laundering scheme… Alice of Honey Pie sent it to me, and it has chocolate and peanut butter all over it. I had NO idea the award was hot!

    Geez… That post-awards-ceremony party isn’t going to be half as much fun now.

    But at least I can give DeadRooster awards to all my online friends! 🙂

    You deserve a much better award than that one–shoot, I might think up a legitimate award and give it to you. Hmm. 🙂

    I demand an award that I will never post or link back to 🙂

    But the thought would be there 🙂

    Well, I wouldn’t expect you to scar up the really nice looking blog you just beautificated (that’s a word I learned from the President of the United States). 🙂

    Indeed, that is brilliant. I think perhaps I should go sit in a bar and just try to dream up the next big scam that will drive enough traffic to my site to bring it to it’s knees. Just brilliant and I’m amazed that I didn’t see through that…sigh…I’m an idioit sometimes. hahahahaha (just kidding, I’m actually quite intelligent if I say so myself)

    Some of the best ideas are born in a bar. Let me know what you come up with. 🙂

    Nice idea!!! You know it might be optimized in order to make it work better! I will think about it. Because probably the site which got 67,750 links, should be having a lot traffic already or he was the first who created this Idea. Any way it’s a Great Job 😉

    Great Post! Best acceptance speech of the Arte y Pico ever! And you’re right about the linkbacks…I thought how brilliant that was myself when I was awarded two of the suckers and passed it on to 10 unknowing victims. I humbly accept your award, and will link back to you in yet another awards post in a coming date. Mariuca awarded me with a truckfull!

    Cheers!

    Very, very, very funny. And I’m glad someone finally looked into the Arte de Pico Award and its website. (Which I can’t even read because it’s in a foreign language…Spanish? Italian?) Hilarious. Love your writing, love your award idea.

    Absolutely loved your acceptance speech. I have been awarded/tagged with the Arte Y Pico Award as well. You summed up my thoughts on being tagged with memes. I haven’t thought of a way to say thanks for it yet, but it will be coming soon. You are a Diabolical Genius! Very funny post!

    Gee, this really a bomb hehehe..you just opened the really serious part of an “award-giving-person-for-personal-gain” scheme. We (bloggers) doesn’t realized that by accepting the biggest and most prestigious “arte-Y-traffic” blog award, were catapulting the Alexa rank as well as blog page ranking of the person who devised this tactic. All I can say is Congrats to that person. Nice one! Bravo!

    It looks like we really need to practice our “use your better judgement” system of thinking.

    And, I’ll be waiting my turn to give out my own named award style… maybe after the issue with arte-Y-traffic awards died out…

    Thanks Dead Rooster, for opening our eyes. Keep bloggin.. =)

    Thanks! The only problem is, I seem to have planted the seed for a whole slew of new “linkback” awards. LOL 🙂

  17. Hey William, My first time here and I find out that there is an award going around that I knew nothing about!! What the real bummer is that I was not even a nominee, the Academy must have lost my entry… unless they are against “Money Making Blogs.” Do you think you’ll be walking down the “Red Carpet”? Also is there anyway you could get me in on this award … I think I really need an award!! Love your blog and will certainly be back (just in case there is another award give-away) just to see what else is happening to the Dead Rooster. P.S. I was attacked by a rooster when I was in my teens and the owner of the bird took a 2×4 and yes he was a dead rooster. True story.
