No, it’s not what you think. For those of you unacquainted with Spaeth Communications’ always-engaging Bimbo Newsletter, take a look at the 2007 wrap-up in Bimbo Winners here. They publish winners monthly, and I always learn something, laugh, or scratch my head.
“The Bimbo Award recognizes dumb public comments made during the year. The criterion for nomination is that the speaker causes the listener to believe exactly the opposite of what is said. The award is a reminder that repeating negative words only reinforces the negative message as well as misses the opportunity to convey the right message to the reader or listener.”
