I have created a prestigious award to recognize excellence in the field of stupidity, idiocy and just plain duhhhh. Anyone who makes the news by showing exceptional lack of judgment, logic and foresight deserves the coveted Palme d'Face award.

Palme d'Face - Cannes Vous Béliève It?

For use here on LiveJournal, here is an icon-sized version, free for anyone to use, as long as you credit me properly:

The field appears to be very crowded and fiercely competitive. Of course, this award is for those who go above and beyond the call of duty. :o)

Can these be awarded at any time of the year?

For brevity's sake, let's not bother awarding it to anyone whose last notable act of stupidity was before this calendar year. That still leaves the guy who tried to cash a forged check for $360 billion, claimed to be from his mother-in-law in order to start a record company. I'll be surprised if anyone tops that act this year.

Well, congratulations!
As the creator of this new award, you are its first recipient!
It should be "Palme De Face".
The only time D' is used is when the word starts with a vowel.
Like, D'Or or D'Orange or D'Energie.
Fix it!

I know that, but "d'Face" makes it work better as a visually oriented pun. Think of it as... uh, some weird dialect. :}

"Think of it as... uh, some weird dialect. :}"

Or further defacing a perfectly good language.
Pistols at dawn on the Champs Des Martyres, monsieur.

But "Palme de Face" isn't as funny as "Palme d'Face"! You ask me to compromise my art, sir? I think not, sir! Pistols at dawn it is!
