The article discusses the fictitious Grumpy Awards. Thanks to the production and distribution services of Greater Northwest Podunkyille (Idaho) Community Access Television, music enthusiast Grumpmeier's little foray into celebrity television made its way onto the world's airwaves. The trophies, made by the Stars & Stripes All-American USA Trophy Company (with manufacturing facilities in Bangladesh), depict a middle-age man (bearing a striking resemblance to Grumpmeier himself) with a microphone in one hand and a trash can in the other. He calls them, not surprisingly, "The Grumpy Awards."
