An on-time Molly!

I’ve so late in tallying up the Molly nominations lately, that I thought for a change I’d get the March Molly award done on time, and a little early even.

This one was easy: it was a landslide for Josh, Official SpokesGay. Every blog should have an official SpokesGay.

Now, start nominatin’ for the April Molly by leaving a comment here.


  1. Ring Tailed Lemurian says

    Nice one, Josh. Well deserved.
    I think Molly winners should get an extra perk and be (the only people) allowed to post pics for their month of fame.

  2. David Marjanović says

    Caine, Fleur du Mal for both the quality and the quantity.

    Cerberus for the quality in sufficient quantity.

    And how exactly is it possible that a_ray_in_dilbert_space still hasn’t got one? Does he always tunnel through the jaws of victory, or something?

  3. Carlie says

    Yea Josh! I’ll buy you a beer if we ever end up in the same state.

    Also going with Caine and Cerberus this month.

  4. Naked Bunny with a Whip says

    I would have volunteered to be the official spokesgay, but I’m not gay, nor do I have spokes.

    Congrats, Josh.

  5. Nerd of Redhead, OM says

    For those of you unsure if your nominee already has a Molly, please check here.

    Congratulations to Josh, our SpokesGay.

    This month I’ll nominate A_Ray_In_Dilbert_Space, who always has cogent comments, and who I consider long overdue. And Caine, Fleur du Mal, who lives up to her moniker by skewering the illogical posters.

  6. Alan B says

    Congratulations to King Josh II! (aka JoshOSG).

    Nomination? Several come to mind but a ray in dilbert space must be up there.

  7. Celtic_Evolution says

    Huzzah! Congrats Josh, OSG!

    For April Molly I cast my vote for Caine, Fleur du Mal. Always an enjoyable read…

  8. nigelTheBold says

    Congrats Josh! Well deserved.

    I go KOPD, for general all-around solid posts.

  9. echidna says

    Congrats Josh OSG’OM – If we add an extra H we could get an anagram of OM’GOSH.

    Well done anyway.

  10. Bill Dauphin, OM says

    Justice is servied!! Congrats, Josh OSG-OM.

    My noms for this cycle are…




    (PS to Ol’Greg: You’re in the on-deck circle!)

  11. Zeno says

    Congratulations to the Official SpokesGay! I am relieved that at last we have an authoritative source for information on the latest items in the “gay agenda” that we keep hearing so much about.

    Good work, Josh!

  12. articulett says

    Hurray! Hurray! for my favorite SpokesGay!

    Josh is always worth reading– Congratulations on a well deserved award, Josh.

  13. Sastra says

    Aha! Josh is now OFFICIALLY a spokesgay. So I’m not sure if Josh, Official SpokesGay OM will be sufficient. It might have to be Josh, Official Official SpokesGay, OM.

    Congrats to Josh.

    This month I see I made special note of 2:

    Gregory Greenwood

    Both have a history of insightful commentary, and I always look forward to reading their posts.

  14. Kieranfoy says

    I’m going to nominate Caine… just because I don’t want to get eaten.

    Malkav save me, I don’t wanna get eaten!

  15. cicely says

    Congrats to our now-offical SpokesGay! My picks for NewMolly would be Caine, FdM and KOPD.

    Re: aratina cage @ #7: *bow* We aim to please, if not to hit. Or at the very least, not to disgust. ;)

  16. Dianne says

    About time Josh OSG became Josh OSG, OM.

    For this month…so many choices…apart from Caine, KOPD, a_ray_in_dilbert, what about David Marjanovic? He seems overdue.

  17. Nerd of Redhead, OM says

    David Marjanovic? He seems overdue.

    Nope, had his since 9/07. I think his tentacle cluster collection is getting close to his weight too…

  18. Sastra says

    Oh, crud. I voted before I read the other suggestions (so I would not be influenced), and of course I see the wisdom of Ray-in-dilbert-space and Ol’Greg. So add em in, and now I will not look back at the thread, lest I find myself voting yet again.

  19. OurDeadSelves says

    Yay, Josh!

    I vote for either Caine or a-ray-in-dilbert-space both are excellent commenters.

  20. Dianne says

    @26: Ah, I see. The modest OM does not use his title.

    In that case, I second or third or fourth Ol’Greg. Though I also think Naked Bunny with a Whip and Sili, the Unknown Virgin deserve Mollies for the nyms alone. (Would Sili then be the unknown molly?)

  21. Sili, The Unknown Virgin says

    I can’t take credit for the ‘nym. I think it was Jadehawk that insisted someone use it after a drive-by troll accused us all of being 35-year-old virgin geeks.

  22. Lets Get Surgical says

    Congrats, Josh. Well deserved.


    get my vote, for never failing to liven up a thread.

  23. Pareidolius says

    Congratulations J,OSG!

    Your tireless promotion of the directives of the Illuminated Intergalactic Gay Agenda Council pleases us greatly. You shall receive your limited edition IIGAC Braun™ toaster oven and commemorative Princess Diana “Daughters of the Illuminati” tea set from Franklin Mint forthwith.

    I say the next OM goes to that bad flower, Caine.

  24. somewhereingreece says

    Congratulations Josh! :-D

    I nominate Caine, Fleur du Mal, Ol’Greg and Cerberus

  25. Nerd of Redhead, OM says

    a drive-by troll accused us all of being 35-year-old virgin geeks.

    That was SlantedScience, and the twit is still posting.

  26. SaintStephen says

    Surely shouting is allowed on these august occasions:

    Congratulations Josh !!!

    Oh, and there’s more.

    You, Sir, have vast intelligence and an unerring sense of fair play. It literally drips from your every post. Too bad Lamarckism isn’t true, because my children (the ones I knew about) would no doubt be better human beings due to my absorption of your sage wisdom.

    Most of all, thank you for making me feel welcome on Pharyngula. You have my sincere gratitude.

  27. Ol'Greg says

    Cerebrus. Again. And Caine. Again.

    Walton, I’m holding out for you because you keep getting cooler by the month and I’d hate to interrupt the trajectory.

  28. MrFire says

    Well done Spokesgay!

    I would like to vote for Celtic_Evolution and a_ray_in_dilbert_space, who are both overdue.

    But there are so many others on the list.

  29. SaintStephen says

    (1) Caine

    (2) a_ray_in_dilbert_space

    (3) Celtic_Evolution

    (4) Walton

    (5) Ol’Greg

  30. Josh, Official SpokesGay says

    I would like to thank the Baby Jesus, without whose non-existence none of this would be possible, also. . .

    Srsly, thanks guys, it’s flattering. Especially to Par, #35 – you may send the toaster to Ghey Inc., Box 69, Sodom, 12345.

    For this month’s Molly – there are always too many deserving commenters! In no particular order (because I wuv you all):

    Caine, Fleur de Mal



    Ol’Greg (but only if she plays her love games with me)

    Celtic Evolution

  31. boygenius says

    Congratulations, Josh, OSG, OM!!1!

    I’ll echo St. Stephen in saying that your sense of fair play nearly jumps off the page in your comments. Not to mention your snark.

    For April:



  32. Jadehawk, OM says

    congrats Josh OSG, OM :-D

    I am determined to nominate Cerberus and a_ray_in_dilbert_space every month until they get their mollies.

  33. Cerberus says

    Yay, congratulations Josh, we are all gay men now…

    By mandate*.

    Damn gay agenda.

    My nominations:

    Caine, fleur du mal

    *Or was that man date?

  34. 'Tis Himself, OM says

    A Molly thread? Is it May 20th already? I’m sure I lost a week or three somewhere and I haven’t been drinking or drugging. Must be senility.

    Anyway, congratulations to Josh OSG OM. Well done, sir.

    I’ll go with the flow this time to vote for a_ray_in_dilbert_space and Caine.

  35. Caine, Fleur du mal says

    Congratulations, Josh, Official SpokesGay OM! It’s about time, and well deserved!

    My April nominees:

    Celtic_Evolution and JeffreyD.

  36. Caine, Fleur du mal says


    I’m going to nominate Caine… just because I don’t want to get eaten.

    You’re safe. For now.


  37. ~Pharyngulette~ says

    Hurrah for Josh, Official Gay Spokes OM!
    No, wait.
    Hurrah for OSHKOSH by Josh, Officially Gay!



    Well done, Josh OSG, OM. Although I often sit quietly on the periphery of the Pharyngula bullring when there’s a troll-smacking occurring, I love your comments.

  38. AnthonyK says

    Well done Josh, well deserved.
    I’ll go for Celtic_Evolution and Caine Evil Flower, most entertaining – amongst many others.

  39. Dust says

    Yay! Yay! Josh the SpokesGay,
    got himself a Molly today!

    Now it’s time for Celtic_Evolution to receive his Molly!

  40. Smoggy Batzrubble OM4Jesus says

    Dear Brother Josh,

    Congratulations on your well deserved Mollification. Make sure you make the most of it! In the immediate aftermath of my Mollification I found that a lot more people wanted to have sex with me. Now I regret the missed opportunities — both Rielle Hunter and Tiger Woods sent me a texts but I was a bit tied up.

    Speaking of sex, my Christian beliefs require me to condemn you for your immoral lifestyle. Is there any chance you could get down here to Noo Zillund for this? My friend Floyd Rubber would like to condemn you as well, and his condemnation is a damn site bigger than mine. We could even have a mutual condemnatory threesome if you were feeling open to the spirit. Or, if you bring some buddies, we could have a week-long condemnatory orgy! I’ve got a drum full of christian lube and a thousand rosaries worth of anal beads.

    Yours in prayer for your buff and stylishly dressed soul


    PS And a vote for the sensational arranged-in-dildo-space

  41. John Morales says

    Good on ya, Josh OSG.
    I offer you a firm and manly handshake. :)

    Since I’m a slacker who’s not kept track of specific comments, I’ll go with Cerberus, who I consider posts heavy-duty and substantive comments. A relative newcomer, but mighty impressive to me.

    a_ray_in_dilbert_space is very definitely up there, really solid on the math and science aspects and interesting all-round (and is probably overdue!).

    As usual, I’ll state that I endorse the other, above-mentioned nominees — I just don’t want to dilute my vote too much.

    Finally, I urge lurkers to consider making the Molly posts a special occasion and have a say.

  42. Kel, OM says

    Well done Josh.

    This month (and every month until he gets one) A_Ray_In_Dilbert_Space

  43. Josh, Official SpokesGay says


    Speaking of sex, my Christian beliefs require me to condemn you for your immoral lifestyle.

    When may I present myself for proper chastisement?

    My friend Floyd Rubber would like to condemn you as well, and his condemnation is a damn site bigger than mine. We could even have a mutual condemnatory threesome if you were feeling open to the spirit.

    Giggity! The thought of throwing hot, mean-spirited words of insult and scorn with the three of you is just. . well. . . guh-guh-guh-guh-guh. . .

    I’ve got a drum full of christian lube

    I see your drum and raise you a 55-gallon barrel of Crisco.

  44. Haley says

    I vote for



    Congrats, Josh! You are well deserving.

  45. Janine, Mistress Of Foul Mouth Abuse, OM says

    Stopping in for a quick comment. (I really do not like to use my blackberry to compose messages. I also do not tweet and do not use SMS much. AND GET OFF MY LAWN!)

    Congratulations to my fake hubby, Josh. You have finally joined Lynna and me in sharing this award. (I forgot, is Carlie also one of the sister-wives? If not, she should be.) There just might be something extra special the next time we share our faux bed. Are you ready to be pegged?

    As for my votes, I have to give one to an other of my sister-wives, Caine. And because I am rather surprised he does not yet have one, (He has been around at least as long as I have.) a_ray_in_dilbert_space.

    My apologies to all of the other fine people who populate this blog.

  46. Pygmy Loris says

    Congrats Josh!

    I haven’t been following much this month, so I’m going back to my list of people I need to vote for.

    Caine and Ol’Greg are at the top, so votes for both!

  47. Feynmaniac, Chimerical Toad says

    Congrats SpokesGay!

    I nominate a_ray_in_dilbert_space and negentropyeater.

  48. The Chimp's Raging Id says

    Congratulations, Josh, OSG, OM!

    My vote for this month goes to Cerberus.

  49. Carlie says

    I forgot, is Carlie also one of the sister-wives?

    I’m number three, which means that I’m always too busy scrubbing down the bathrooms and doing the laundry to be noticed. :)

  50. 'Tis Himself, OM says

    I’m always too busy scrubbing down the bathrooms

    That’s the faux sex, I take it.

  51. OurDeadSelves says

    I’m a badbad person.

    While I totally stand behind my other Molly noms*, it would be a huge shame to not recognize Cerberus for all of her awesome posts!

    *Om nom nom!

  52. Walton says

    In the immediate aftermath of my Mollification I found that a lot more people wanted to have sex with me.

    Does this usually happen :-/

  53. Knockgoats says

    Congratualtions, Josh OSG,OM!

    For April, another vote for a_ray_in_dilbert_space.

  54. badgersdaughter says

    whoa, I got a Molly nom…. no way. Cool. Thanks, Sili. I post erratically and not often enough though, I think.

    Congrats Josh, can’t think of a better human. I can think of some just as good, though, heh…

    A Ray in Dilbert Space for consistently being above and beyond the call of duty.

    negentropyeater for… for… aplomb.

    Walton can finally be awarded the Most Improved Player trophy, for impressive gains that he has kept and improved further upon.

    And Cerberus for showing the rest of us how to not to take shit off anyone, with style and passion.

  55. Kieranfoy says

    Wow… sex due to Mollification?

    I gotta get one of these.

    Hey, everyone! Vote for me, and I’ll give you a groat!

  56. jefrir says

    Congrats, Josh, very well deserved.

    I’d like to nominate Cerberus, Caine and Carlie.

  57. tiggerthewing#8a4e4 says

    Congratulations, Josh OSG OM!

    I’d like to nominate Cerberus for her intelligent, informative and supportive posts.

  58. Janine, Mistress Of Foul Mouth Abuse, OM says

    Jefrir, Carlie got her OM for August of 2009.
