The Autopian Is Honored To Be Honored By The Webby Awards In The Perfect Category

We’re not in this for the money, or the accolades, or the accolades that come with money (I’m looking at you MacArthur Grant-taker and climate expert Peter Gleick). We’re in it for you. And because people give us cars to drive. But mostly for you. Still, it’s an honor to be honored as an ‘Honoree’ by the Webby Awards.

The Webby Awards are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences and are the “leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet.” They’ve existed since 1996, and for the last 28 years, the awards have recognized the best and weirdest on the web.

Weirdest is important because we’ve been selected as a Webby Honoree in the Websites and Mobile Sites – Weird category. That fits. While we’re not up for voting because we’re not one of the top finalists, it’s still great to be recognized, especially considering that our fellow nominees include a project from Google and Mr. Beastify. Definitely go vote in the category for the website you think is the weirdest.

“Congratulations! Earning the distinction of Webby Honoree, as recognized by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences is a significant achievement,” Webby Awards President Claire Graves told me in an email letting me know about the distinction.

Are we letting this go to our heads? Yes. We’re definitely putting the honoree sticker on all our project cars going forward.

Congrats to you all! I talk alot of shit on here, but I am obviously here because you guys are doing it better than any other car website running right now!

Good luck, and hopefully my kids are reading your stuff in another decade!

Clearly, you need to publish the shower spaghetti recipe. Then you would’ve been a shoo-in to DOMINATE!

I’ve tried…Lord knows I’ve tried:

Sauce+Spaghetti+Shower

It’s just missing… something.

A pinch of grease, and a dash of 10W30.

Maybe that’s it.

Or 50yo old gear oil for that je ne sais quoi which only REAL extract of sperm whale can give.

I’d bet, with this recipe, we could win a Michelin Star…

Gotta know what sauce, though. Jarred or homemade? Seasonings? Any toppings like red pepper flakes?

Hopefully it’s not that sawdusty parmesan stuff. I’ll have it in a pinch, but it’s really a last resort. Can’t have that sullying the good tiles in my shower.

Oh homemade sauce of course! Only homegrown Piennolo Del Vesuvio and herbs will do, at least when authentic, lightly smoked and aged Neapolitan tomatoes are not at hand.

(Polish Opalka tomatoes are a decent substitute though).

Maybe its the noodles. Does DT boil them in diluted used coolant?

I think that seasoning is applied whenever hands get into the recipe, but I can’t say for sure. This is why we need the recipe!

Without any text in the photo I would have thought the website was for enthusiasts of Olde Tyme boxing.

Well done lads. I believe I speak for everyone when I say how damn happy we are that you left your former employer (what was it called?) and ventured out on your own and the hard work and consistent monkey business has paid off.

If it’s weird and has wheels, it’s probably in The Autopian.

Congratulations!

As a business owner, I am firmly in the camp of acknowledging every achievement is a team win. However, looking at the Webby logo/graphics, this is clearly Huibert’s accomplishment.

Hopefully this gives you all some bounce…
