I have, recently, received the greatest honour from… somebody. Looks to be Christopher Maloney but who actually knows. Or cares, really.

I have been promoted to “The Dirty Dozen”, a minion, nay, a TOP minion of PZ Myers. You see, PZ Myers literally has MILLIONS of minions and for somebody (even a quack like Christopher Maloney, or even a stranger quack purporting to be Christopher Maloney) to recognise me as one of the TOP 12 minions is a singular honour.

I just want to take this time to thank my parents, without whom I would never have been able to achieve this honour. And I would like to thank my team and especially the crowd from #pharyngula who have made all of this possible. I would like to thank my lovely wife, whose support and assistance during this time has made all of this possible. And thank you all, for your loyal support. And last, but not least, I would like to thank Dr. PZ Myers. Without his inspiration and mentoring, I would surely never have been able to win this award.  Thank you.

I must say, I really do appreciate the traffic Chris, since I have a small blog, even a couple extra views make a lot of difference. Thank you very much for the honourable mention.

Now, since I’m a top 12 minion, if only I could manage to convince The Right Honourable PZ Myers Baron Pharyngula to link to my blog. He is after all a hard master to please.

It’s little awards like these that make me want to blog.


Options for feeding llamas are quite wide. The llama owner has a wide variety of commercial and farm based food products to choose from for llamas.
