So, these are web videos, and what have we done? Another year over, and a new one just begun. Or soon to begin, haha, and what better time to get ready for where we’re going in 2016 than to recap where we’ve been? A novel idea, I know. In any event, today’s column is special because, not only does it recap some of the year’s very best web video contributions, but it also awards said selections with big, brassy accolades that I have come up with in hopes of creating a tradition. Every piece featured this year was special in its own way, but these…these are the cream of the egg nog, purely, PURELY because I’m saying so. Happy Holidays to all. Please enjoy these very funny contributions, and please come back and join us next year when we’ll have even more web videos, and – with a little luck – a bunch of money to turn these made up blog awards into a little something called…The Oscars.
