Why I Hate Consolation Prizes

Hey it's Thursday whats up!

Today's comic is a little bit more focused on my word play quirkiness. Only smart people will get it and find it funny. I think.

Have you ever joined a contest or competition where you hope you would win the biggest prize but you end up winning only the small one; fantasically known as the consolation prize? Do you enjoy winning them? How do you feel about consolation prizes?

I don't know about you but I do have a problem with consolation prizes.

Why? Because it's free.
I know I should appreciate them because at least I won something as they are still gifts to my effort in any sort of contest or competition despite how small it is. I guess the problem lies in from where the word comes from and it makes me feel patronized in a way. I do not wish to be 'consoled' with the cheapest prize. I do not need your pity!

But a prize is still a prize though and I'll keep it if it's useful. Yes. I am such a colossal hypocrite.

I still think they should call it something else instead of "consolation prize".

"They do, bro. Sometimes they call it 'honorable mention'."
"Oh...... Really?"

I feel stupid now.

Have a great weekend ahead!
