I would propose the following as a contest for Netroots Nation as a way to rib our friends and mock our opponents.
How does a fake birth certificate contest sound for Netroots Nation?
I think there should be contests for most fake, least fake, best target, most jokes, best anachronism, most brazen, most complimentary etc.
We should have a panel of judges who, for example, wrote fake doctors' notes in middle school, people who scammed fake drivers' licenses for getting booze and, if available, a few Nigerian 419 scammers on probation, etc. Film director John Waters should also be invited to judge as we really should reward the campiest fake birth certificates as well, and Waters owns camp.
Perhaps we could have fake prizes for the winning entries - a shitty toupee, zirconium rings, falsies/codpieces, plastic flowers, etc.
I realize that this is barely enough for a diary here, but may I suggest that those who have such skills show off their prowess - excuse me, their artistic prowest to be precise - and make your best fake birth certificate for your hero, your villain, whomever, and link to them through Flickr or other approved sites.
