Word Up, YO! Week 5

Welcome back for the Fifth Edition of Word Up, YO!

Thank you all for your continued love and support of our Nerd Mafia family. Your dedication does not go unnoticed.

So many of you were open to sharing your *fumbles* with us. Some *fumbles* were hysterical, some were serious, some were scary, but all were duly noted by the Dons.

Katie from Katie’s Dailies is unrelenting in making her presence known in the Nerd Mafia family. She used all 4 WOW!s we’ve had in this week’s post!

Poppy from Funny Or Snot had a fall-off-your-chair-in-tears-and-laughter type post… as long as don’t blush easy and aren’t politically correct.

We had our first child entry this week! A little Don-in-the-making over at Sports Boy News used *fumble* a plethora of times in his post.

Before we get to the announcement of the winner, we Dons need to share a little of what’s to come for our faithful associates.

We’ve been spending hours toiling away in the reference section of the library to design and implement a proper mafia family organizational structure. Soon, you will know exactly where you stand in the family and what you need to do to move up in rank.

Those who continue to prove their worth to the family will be properly rewarded.

That’s all we will say at this time.


And now, the announcement of last week’s winner…

Congratulations, Lula Lola!!!

We’re glad no one was eaten by the shark in your harrowing tale.

In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man.

Also, congratulations, Sports Boy News!!!

In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Kid.
