SV Owners Collectively Awarded Sanctimonious Prick Award
Las Vegas (Reuters) In a quiet ceremony at the Sands Casino today, representatives of the collective body of SV650 motorcycle owners were awarded the 2002 Sanctimonious Prick award by the National Academy of Sanctimonious Pricks.
"As a large body of smug, self-rightous a$$holes, SV owners have succeded in annoying and irritating the larger community of motorcyclists by constantly chirping on about how great their bikes are, even when the topic of conversation has nothing to do with middleweight twin-cylinder motorcycles, or anything to do at all with motorcycles." said noted media critic George F. Will, master of ceremonies for the 3-hour long NASP awards ceremony. "By doing so, they preserve and carry on a grand tradition of sanctimonious pricks everywhere."
Seattle SV owner Alen Heng accepted the award on behalf of owners of the mildly acclaimed budget motorcycle. "I appreciate the honor bestowed on us by the Academy, and we will strive to be evermore sanctimonious, smug, and annoying."
Last year's, recipient, rock star Bono, wished the new awardees well in a press conference from his world headquarters in Nairobi. "Although their acheivments pale next to mine, I suppose the constant mentioning of their vehicle's postitive attributes will bring a high standard to the feild of sanctimonious prickery. Did you know I'm going to solve hunger as well as AIDS?"
