I recently came across the Webby Awards and discovered that recipients are only allowed to speak five words in their acceptance speech.

The kids from the PS22 school choir made the best of it and said:
"Five words?"
"Okay!"
"Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcaniconiosis. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."

Another guy messed things up and asked "How am I on time?" after reading a message on his Blackberry.

What would you say if I you got the chance to accept a Webby?

I just wish that the Oscar, Emmy, and Grammy winners were only allowed five words.

Actually that was Zach Galifianakis, and it was a joke.

My favorite, so far, has been Vinton Cerf's. Mr. Cerf is one of the fathers of the internet. His was: "You ain't seen nothin' yet."

Here's a link (http://www.webbyawards.com/press/speeches.php) to the Webby acceptance speeches through the years.

One of my favourites was "Not bad for posting kittens" (Cute Overload). But I have no idea what I'd say.
