Here’s the 2020 SHINY — Some Hysterical Inane Nattering Yenta — Award winners for The Season Interrupted on Palm Beach.

There's all kinds of awards with snappy names — the Tonys, the Oscars, the Emmys, the Grammys.


So why not an award to recognize good things, as well as criminality, rudeness, stupidity and general doofishness?


Even in a season cut short by a viral interloper, there’s been no shortage of any of ’em.


So here’s the 2020 SHINY — Some Hysterical Inane Nattering Yenta — Award winners for The Season Interrupted.


* The SHINY for Visit, Interrupted: To the Canadian couple who were arrested at Mar-a-Lago after repeatedly ignoring police orders to step out of their pickup truck. When police threatened to break the windows and forcibly remove them, the man scrawled "CIA" on a piece of paper and pressed it against the window. Using their batons, police smashed the windows, dragged the two out and placed them under arrest.


Turns out that "CIA" was an acronym for "Canadian Idiots Aboard."


* The SHINY for Hardware, Interrupted: To the Palm Beach man who allegedly threatened another man in the Home Depot store with a gun because, he said, he had been waiting longer for a store employee to assist him.


Well, no wonder. There’s a better chance of striking oil in your backyard flowerbed than finding an orange vest in that place.


The gun-toting do-it-yourselfer was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. And, because he used racial slurs and profanity, he also was charged with being an all-around jerk.


* The SHINY for Decorum, Interrupted: To the unidentified guest at the Police and Fire Foundation gala who left his good manners at home.


As the president of the United States was speaking to a standing crowd about the assassination of an Iranian terrorist chief, the man was shouting "Mr. President, Mr. President, can we sit down?" repeatedly, until POTUS stopped speaking and asked "Who is that guy?"


But on the upside, everybody got to sit down.


* The SHINY for Employment, Interrupted: To the woman who was arrested on charges stalking and harassing her ex-employer after multiple violations of a no-contact order.


After denying she had contacted her ex-employer, police examined the victim’s telephone records and found that she had made almost 350 calls to her ex-boss over a six-week period


On the day the story appeared in the local press, it was learned that she had been hired — briefly — as an advertising saleswoman for the Shiny Sheet.


I’ll just leave that there.



* The SHINY for Interruption, Interrupted: To the Mar-a-Lago Beach Club, which sent a letter to its members to inform them of preparations for re-opening as soon as the mandate is lifted.


The club also is considering stretching its season until the end of July to make up for missed laps in the pool and soaking up rays in the chaise lounge.


Seeing as how things are still pretty much of a mess up North, it’s a good bet that the place will be busy.


But will they find a place to display the SHINY Award?
