Three ass-hats: Left to right - bruce "big mouth" baganz; Ignatus "checkbook" Vok; detlef "deadeye" maltzahn
This is ludicrous and takes the McMullan award, which has been sinking like the Titanic for the past decade and more, to a level that is astoundingly unacceptable.
After giving the award to himself, the crook and thief dennis dodds, jon "the con mr Imreli" thompson and a host of other douchebags, having baganz bestow it on an auctioneer and a collector, who has said absolutely not one word that could even in baganz's parlance been called rug scholarship, is completely bogus. Even in laughing-stock rugDUMB this is beyond idiocy.
By the way maltzahn's rug scholarship could not fill a toddler's pinkie sized thimble.
Yessshhhh, time for a major reality check here. Who's going to be next years recepient, rosalie and mitch rudnick?
