It is finally here. The world has been waiting for the 2008 TFPH Man of the Year which may be the most prestigious honor that we bestow on an individual. My vote is tallied and here are the nominees.
- Charles Barkley– The Chuckster ended the year strong. Not only does he give us a reason to stay up and watch Clipper games but he is also giving back to society. Despite the poor economy he was still willing to hire a young lady at 3 in the morning. How many new jobs did you create in 2009? That is what I thought.
- Barack Obama – Obama was named Time Magazine Person of the Year and becomes the first black President since William Mckinley. He also inspired a Young Jeezy song that I cannot get out of my head.
- World’s Fattest Man – Manuel Uribe dropped 700lbs and got married. He also introduced us to the term sex ramp which conjures up images of Evil Knievel and the porn industry. The only drawback is the profit margin from Taco Bell declined 70% in direct correlation with his weight loss.
- Artie Lange – 2008 was a tremendous roller coaster ride for Artie Lange. He is the only reason to listen to the Stern show and became a best selling author with Too Fat to Fish. The only thing slowing him down are cupcakes and heroin.
And the 2008 TFPH Man of the Year goes to….
Artie Lange. Nobody is more entertaining on the late night talk shows than that baby gorilla. He is a fifth of Jack Daniels away from sweeping the Trainwreck of the Year category (Click Here) but he managed to hold things together. Let’s be thankful that they have not developed a cheese flavored heroin. Here is Artie on Jimmy Kimmel.
