President-Elect and First Family to receive First Annual Award for his efforts to stop smoking. This prestigious award, created by famous French artist/painter, Philippe Valy, will be bestowed upon President Elect Barack Obama at a date to be announced.
It will be the First Annual Last Butt Awards to be given to selected public officials and celebrities to reward them for making giant efforts to stop smoking as they grapple with the challenges of their office or industry.
The Poet-in-Residence of the Last Butt Society, Emgee, has written a poem depicting the then Senator Obama’s struggles with smoking during the campaign and what could be his sentiments upon receiving the Award. Since the offer in December and the publication of the poem “Ode to the Wagon”, the poet in residence has updated the poem here.
