Thanks for that link, Tower Man. The Stewie / DM episode happened well before my arrival here. He deserves a medal for that one, having made a correct snap decision and then flown into the arms of Lady Luck, for an outcome that was only a pain in the arse rather than an obit.
But this trophy being built for the NVM, this is a different sort of thing. By its very nature, it goes in search of:
* An original poor or needless action taken on flawed thinking
* An immediate further mishandling of the situation that unfolds
* An outcome considerably worse than it might have been
We all have such accomplishments in our record. I have several.
But anyone can revel in the past
. Ideally, the winning behavior would be shown on the very ride out where the trophy is awarded. It could be something done on the bike, in a campsite, something involving a waitress or bartender in the presence of the group, something like that.
That way, the winner could be judged or voted on by the entire group, be they eyewitnesses or the part of the crowd exposed to the freshest and most unreliable hearsay of others.
A fringe benefit would be that the winner would be 100% sure to attend the next NVM, being desperate to unload the trophy on the next hapless contestant, go home, take a shower, and put the whole damned thing behind him.
