The Hubry Awards

The Hubry awards honor outstanding achievements in the field of hubris.  Recipients must demonstrate more than just excessive pride to qualify.  They must also show a willingness to break the rules.  In order to qualify, recipients must show that they are so sure of themselves they can ignore the social and cultural strictures that the rest of us normally adhere to.  Hubris was a crime in ancient greece.  Those on the list below can be thankful it is no longer.
