Love Bug Wins Traverse City Film Festival?

From the Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival Blog ...

Post-interview, we headed back into the theater to catch the Comedy Shorts Competition. There were a number of hilarious shorts shown, including a few from Michael's "Awful Truth" days (not in competition), Joe Avella's "Wheelchair Werewolf" and Greg & Lou's "Wolverine's Claws Suck." In an odd display of audience manic-depressive disorder, the two winners (which were determined by a real audience applause meter) were the violently funny "Wolverine's Claws Suck" and an a-dorable short about young puppy love called "Love Bug." Michael presented the Greg & Lou crew with their trophy, complete with a golden snowmobile attached on top, which the guys deemed "surprisingly heavy." Afterward, the group brought the trophy over with them so we could shoot an interview at the Up North studio, and I'm fairly certain it is blocking one or all of our faces at any given point during the conversation. We'll post the results later this week when the interviews are online to see how it all turned out.

I just wish I'd been there to get a golden snowmobile award from Michael Moore too. Sigh.

Congratulations! Traverse City is a great place... in the summer! You would likely have turned into a popcicle, but it is a beautiful town.
