Come on up for the Rising Star (aka “Take THAT, Leo!”)


Well now that the minor league awards season has passed, it’s time we turn our attention to the ceremony that everyone has been waiting for…the LOUIE Awards. That’s right, the LOUIES. Despite common misconception, they do not honor the year’s best New York City taxicab dispatchers. The prestigious LOUIE Awards recognize the most outstanding greeting cards, invitations and announcements marketed in the U.S. during the previous calendar year. They are considered “The Oscars of the greeting card industry.”

In what hopes to be the start of a Tom Hanks-like run of success and notoriety (which will hopefully result in the first statue added to Phil’s parents’ trophy case since his Little League Good Sportsmanship award in 1985), Bow Ties has been named as a finalist for the award in the category “Rising Star” (Take THAT, Leo!). The nomination came on the strength of the performances in these cards:

*Will Phil pee on the red carpet?
*Will there really be a red carpet?
*Will Phil get political in his acceptance speech if he wins?
*Will he be the one to finally breakthrough and become the first to bring home a trophy from the “males from Rhode Island of Arab-American descent” ethnic and gender group that is consistently overlooked by the greeting card industry?
*Will he do a one-armed pushup (yeah, right).
*Will he kiss (a picture he ripped out of a magazine of) Halle Berry?
*Will he get all “Sally Field” at the podium?

Find out the answers to these questions and more on May 15th!
