A controversy exploded on the scene when I commented on Jeff Yenzer’s Facebook post, “You can’t spell Awesome without ME. ;-D” My thought was that, while just looking at this picture the first thought that comes to mind is, “That guy must be awesome!” but that he wouldn’t be awesome without the darlings known as The Damsels of Dorkington!
I got an immediate response from Blythe Renay saying, “That’s not true. Jeff has been awesome his whole life.”
Apparently he has superpowers as later Jeff noted that he was “was genetically designed for Optimal Awesomocity” and that is a documented fact with the Department of Justice (though I am more inclined to believe that it is documented with the DOD rather than the DOJ!)
While I don’t question Blythe Renay’s current knowledge of him, but she, being one of the damsels in question, may not have adequate basis for her judgement of him that was prior to her knowledge of him.
As I was looking through my archives for this post I ran across the following.
Here we have photos of Just Blythe Renay and just Jeff. While she is clearly awesome, even he looks to be questioning his “Awesomocity”.
In this image we have the two of them together. She looks rather like a rag doll as he tosses her about. It almost seems that Jeff is absorbing her awesomocity.
Later though, her awesomocity is clearly restored. Perhaps Jeff is an awesomocity vampire and much like blood can regenerate in a vampire’s victims, so can awesomocity? At any rate, in case you are one of the few that don’t yet know it, the Damsels (and Jeff) will soon be performing at Gen Con August 4-7, 2011 in Indianapolis, Indiana where Jeff’s awesomocity is a grain of sand on the beach of awesomocity that is Gen Con. So while you wait to see The Damsels of Dorkington at Gen Con, here’s a poll for you to express your oppinion on Jeff’s awesomocity. Hurry though as I am only allowed 400 votes. Get your vote in while supplies last!
