2017 person of the year

Voting for The Gurgler’s 2017 Person of the Year is now open for you to add your vote to one of the six candidates.

With the 2017 Jerk of the Year well underway, it is time for the reward the fourth installment of the Person of the Year award. All playing for the coveted (not covfefe) Golden Turpie award.

Timely too, as the Time Magazine has just recently launched their Persons of the Year edition.

The Gurgler’s 2017 Person of the Year is a celebration of the people we think are important or deserving of some much needed limelight, not necessarily the most famous people on the face of the earth, in fact most would have barely heard of some of our nominees.

That’s the way we like it, celebration of the forgotten, the underappreciated, the unsung heroes, the lesser lights, the Gurgler People of the Year.
