The most sophisticated Nanepashemet Peeps know the criteria for selection and keep its tenets close to their bosom week in and week out during the year. To be selected as a recipient of this Honor/Disgrace, the hapless yet fortunate individual must....
- Not be Dead.
- Not be an Animal.
- Have done something either exceptionally Inspirational or exceptionally Annoying.
And the reason for the selection must never be disclosed lest a severe tear be made in the fabric of the Universe. There is nothing more annoying than to have a Peep of the Week ask me the moronic question, "Why was I picked?" It immediately justifies the selection and so becomes self explanatory.
Last year, for reasons that should be as clear as a Moonlit Maine Sky, the Peep of the Year for 2013 was my new Son-in-Law, Brady Boyle. Brady responded to his selection with an acceptance poem that would have put Robert Frost to shame, and carried out his reign with with incredible style as he carried out his plan to wed my daughter Katelyn in a most memorable matrimonial event. It was a class act all year long.
But now, Brady's POTY run draws to a close, and it is time to pass the crown to a new Peep of the Year,,, the 2014 POTY.
People are going to say that you have to become a fully functional member of the Mountain of a Man's immediate family to become POTY..... and that may indeed be the circumstantial evidence.... but I put that squarely in the realm of stranger than life coincidences.
The 2014 Nanepashemet Peep of the Year is Kim Hause... who is to be renamed this year as Kim Nestor, but not because of this POTY gig.
Congratulationss Kim. Your predecessors will attest that this year promises to to be a whirlwind breakthough as the psychic power of the POTY permeates a most eventful year for you.
