For this quarter’s Dilbert Award Winner I only got one submission. It came via email, but in the future I would like all Dilbert Award submissions to be done here. The submission was this guy. While that guy could win White Knight of the Year, that’s not what the Dilbert Award is primarily about so he doesn’t qualify for a Dilbert Award. The Dilbert Award is about recognizing successful men who get together with single mothers (and other women) who are way beneath what they could really get. If they have been a mangina and/or white knight, especially if they have gone after mens rights, so much the better. Remember the Dilbert Awards can not work without all of you reading this (and there’s a lot more of you now after this blog was featured on Instapundit) submitting candidates.
Chainring in his original suggestion for the Dilbert Awards nominated Todd Harrison, the founder and CEO of Minyanville, a very successful financial media and publishing company. Before founding Minyanville, Harrison was a successful trader, fund manager, and senior executive on Wall Street with firms like Morgan Stanley. He has also appeared on Fox, CNBC, CNN, and Bloomberg Television, and in The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, The New York Times, Worth, Fortune, Barron’s, Dow Jones MarketWatch, New York Magazine, and Canada’s National Post. In addition Harrison has lectured at Harvard University, Syracuse University, New York University, and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
All of Harrison’s good judgement that led to his success was not applied to women. He got involved with a single mother of two kids. The single mother Harrison was with got pregnant with his kid leading to Harrison moving in with her. While Harrison did get a child of his own unlike Scott Adams, he will still have to take care of two children that aren’t his and won’t get any more children (if he wants more children).
Normally there would be voting like with the Entitlement Princess of the Month, but due to the lack of submissions, Harrison wins the 2011 Second Quarter Dilbert Award by default.
