The "Funniest. Blog. Posting. Ever. Award" goes, hands-down, to my pal Elliott in Hokkaido. If he's not digging himself out from underneath ten-foot tall snowfalls or playing yet another round of "Red Rover", he's battling giant, disgusting, slimy seafood.* Yuck.
* The guy has a M.Sc. in Mathematics, with a thesis on some obscure aspect of integers, but if you ask me, he has missed his true calling.
