Unbelievable Cheek Awards

Thanks to everyone who has sent in a nomination. It's coming up to the end of the competition. Unfortunately the number of entries is few, meaning I will have to add a few of my own. Which incriminates me significantly. If you know anyone with unbelievable cheek, just write me a quick email telling a story to illustrate.

For you Americans who perhaps have shied away from responding out of uncertainty as to the exact meaning of "cheek" let me try to explain. (Other British nationals feel free to comment with further explanation.)

cheeky: Impertinently bold; impudent and saucy.
offensively bold; "a brash newcomer disputed the age-old rules for admission to the club"; "a nervy thing to say"(www.dictionary.com)
A cheeky person has a lot of "gall" or "audacity". Sometimes they are just flat out mischievous, in an unbelievable way.
Sometimes cheek manifests itself as sarcasm. Not your typical US sarcasm, but, well, cheeky sarcasm. The kind that makes you wrinkle up your face and think, "That was so unnecessary."
Sometimes it's just doing things that are unthinkable. I like what dictionary.com had to say: "a nervy thing to say". Nice example. Nervy.

So. Do you know someone who really just had a lot of nerve? The audacity to do something? The gall? It could've actually been so nervy it was funny? Then enter it into the contest!!!

The results of the contest will be posted for votes at the end of the week. All names will be changed by myself, but you can feel free to change them in your entry as well. After the nominations have been posted, feel free to vote for as many entries as you like!

If you don't enter into contests like this, I might start doing disgusting ones like "World's Greatest Boyfriend" or something. And no one wants to read that crap.

Email your nomination now.

P.S. It just occurred to me that perhaps some of you may be thinking that I am unbelievably cheeky. Well, I've got thick enough skin. Enter that, too. All entries will be posted for voting. Unless, of course, they involve, like, porn or something. In which case I highly doubt they would be about me...
