The votes are in! But before we get to the winners, paramount praise and props to the plucky people who participated. I know it’s not easy to come up with random brilliance, but you all succeeded with flair. I laughed at each of your entries. A special big thanks goes out to Alexp01, Merbear74, Apprentice Never Master and Behindthemaskofabuse who had to resubmit their entries because WordPress forms SUCK.

I’d also like to thank all of you who voted for your favorites. We had a 5:1 ratio on voting, meaning that for every entry, there were roughly five voters (I don’t know why I didn’t just say that in the first place). Anyway, the fact that so many of you voted makes me feel it was a relatively representative contest rather than everyone just voting for their own.

Without further ado, the results:

Picture 3This is rather unprecedented; we have three two-way ties. Since you worked so hard, I actually got off my lazy ass and made badges for you:

  MADLIBBADGE1

First place: Merbear74 from Knocked Over By A Feather AND Revis Edgewater from 33 Grams of Blog & Stuph Blog.

MADLIBBADGE2

Second place: alexp01 from Excerpts From Nonexistent Books AND Katie from Sass And Balderdash.

MADLIBBADGE3

Third place: Zoe G from behindthemaskofabuse & Buckwheatsrisk AND Twindaddy from Stuph Blog.

What do we do with ties? I didn’t put a tie-breaker in the rules anywhere.

Instead of having a run-off election, I’m going to offer guest-bloggerdom (either mine or yours) to the winners. Merbear and Revis are invited to collect their guest-bloggerdom and bragging rights in any form they choose.

I’ll also open it up to second and third place. Should any of you like to guest post on FOG, you’re more than welcome to come on over and speak your mind.

To discuss your guest-postery options (or anything else really) in private, please use the comment form I just added to my about page.

Thanks for participating and voting, and congratulations to the winners!
