“Why didn't anyone think of making this award before?”

~ Oscar Wilde on the award

The Why didn’t anyone think of that before?! award is an award distributed by a group in a Detroit bar every year. They are always absolutely real events that really happened and were completely brilliant and made the world a better place (according to the judges)


John Johnson Smithson Jr. one of the founder's children who presented the first ever award

According to one of the joint founders of the award: it began in a bar in Detroit in 1981 when two drunks were in a very highly strung conversation and honestly believed that they were the two most intelligent people in the world. They were a chair that looked and sounded exactly like Joseph Stalin and Johnson Smithson, the son of the world famous John Smith. They were arguing about names with the Russian stating “your parents were so thick that they couldn’t even think of a name they just called you ‘son’” to which Smithson replied “that just saves time I hear some random rich guy named his daughter after a branch of the hotel chain he owns." They both agreed that was quite clever and thus the “the why didn’t anyone think of that before?!" award was born.


Between 1981-2009 the judging was taking place in a bar in Detroit, Michigan down the road from where the award was first conceived. The bar itself was closed down because a mixture of Methane, Bromine and Ether were distilling into in the air in just the right quantities to make people think that they were seeing former Russian leaders. The health inspector’s report noted the following: the air is very wavy, there is a very odd smell, the bar keeper has an ice pick in his head, the bar keeper keeps calling me Brezhnev and the single customer is sitting in a corner and keeps saying “I can’t believe no one thought of that before Stalin, can you?”

The judging had been conducting by who ever happened to be in the new bar whenever it was they can be bothered to decide. This was usually some time around thanksgiving.

But in 2009 Freemasons took up the award and set their own rules of awarding. From that time they choose several famous people that choose the winner from the people and organisations nominated by them. Freemasons put Committee in some remoted village and force them to stay there till they decide who is the winner. The first such meeting took place on December 2009 in Norilsk, Central Siberia. In the following year the same place was chosen.
