The act that you are awarding can be benign or amazing, but the badge itself should kind of suck.
Personally, I use the Snipping Tool and a screenshot of a bit of blank-ish screen to create badges and then just dole them out via Twitter. They are not verifiable or microcredentializable, but they are fun, like this one awarded to Tom Evans

Create an award someone a crappy badge.
