Cheap Bastard

Cheap Bastard Alice Laussade is Officially the Second-Funniest Columnist in the Contest We Entered Her In

That contest was the humor-writing division of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists annual awards, which were given out earlier this month, apparently in secret. She lost to this woman.

I'm sure Alice will gladly accept your praise in the comments. Or she'll call you a shithead. One or the other.

Observer columnist Jim Schutze was mentioned honorably in the general-interest division.
