Did someone say results post?!

"quotes" are all voter comments. Excellent votes yous guys, I cracked up repeatedly reading them all. Some comments have been edited for language/brevity! Sorry if your comments aren't here, they were probably cut for some reason which probably isn't incompetence on my part. Probably.

Narwe "her inabililty to frontline without bleeding like a sieve and/or dying, yet continuing to do so is remarkable laughter in the face of darwin."

Ohoho! I like that!

With thanks to the gestalt of derision that manifests as SaraEF and our co-conspirators for setting this up and running it.
