At the end of every year, the Spaeth team evaluates the winning BIMBO comments from each month and selects the best (worst) comment of the year (check out the 2020 BIMBO of the Year). We are excited to reveal the winning BIMBO comments of 2021 below. Here's to a prosperous and BIMBO-free 2022.

2021 BIMBO OF THE YEAR

“I’m not some sort of anti-vax, flat-earther,” said Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers when it was revealed that he was not actually vaccinated and had tested positive for COVID-19. During training camp, he told reporters that he had been “immunized.” He went on to say, “I believe strongly in bodily autonomy and the ability to make choices for your body, not to have to acquiesce to some sort of woke culture or crazed individuals who say you have to do something,” as seen in the December 2021 BIMBO Memo

THE RUNNERS-UP 

“We don’t have this kind of habit of assassinating anybody,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin in response to charges that Russia was behind the poisoning of opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, as seen in the July 2021 BIMBO Memo

“Facebook isn’t killing people,” said President Biden, after walking back his initial statement that, “They’re killing people,” as seen in the August 2021 BIMBO Memo

 

The BIMBO Memo is a reminder not to repeat and deny a negative word because of how the listener hears words. When you repeat and deny a negative word, the listener is likely to overlook the denial and hear the opposite of what the speaker is trying to say. It’s named for the young woman who was caught with a high profile, but alas married man. She held a press conference and announced, “I am not a BIMBO,” thus causing everyone to think she was.
