MAN OF THE YEAR:

Simon Eroro, a reporter for the Post-Courier newspaper
 in Papua New Guinea, really wanted to get a story to expose how Free
 West Papua militants from Indonesia were getting across the border into
 PNG. “The impact of Simon’s scoop was enormous,” said the judges of an
 in-house journalism prize for News Limited reporters; the company
 employs Eroro. “The police commissioner launched a major operation to
 tighten the borders and close down the [Free West Papua] refugee
 camps.” But to get that scoop — to interview a group of “jungle
 rebels” who rarely let journalists in — Eroro had to agree to first
 allow himself to be circumcised with bamboo sticks. He did, they did,
 and he got the scoop and the company award.

A THOUGHT: Nice move, but I bet he can’t pull it off again!

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
