Hmmm.
(D) is so boring that it must be the correct answer - therefore I WILL NOT vote for that!
The idea of the small rodent (C) is attractive, but not believable at all. I really like the sound of Senator Bill Frist (K) and I can see him rubbing his hands together (F) in glee at the success of his tactics.

But the most aesthetically pleasing image is the colo(u)red glass, so I'll vote for

You know what might be fun? Guessing who submitted which answer. Or are there too many inherent complications involved in this that my on-first-coffee-of-the-morning brain has yet to run through?

Did you want points awarded? I gathered from earlier remarks that "we weren't doing it that way anymore."

[sigh] It's easy enough to calculate the points for this round.

Lemme know.......

Oh yes, I didn't mean to imply that the game was ending now....I know that not everyone has cast a vote.

I was just wonderin' about the points. And all that.

just to clarify some things (or not):

- the current practice seems to be to end the round when all the entrants have voted (as opposed to setting some arbitrary deadline, which we've also tried), or at least give them every opportunity to do so

- current practice also is to score the round, at least to the point of declaring a winner for same

- as to the tangential contest, I wouldn't have it going in the same thread, as it would have too much potential to sway/mask the ongoing vote (not that this doesn't already happen); i.e., the clutter factor

- and, finally (as an aside, really), it should be made clear that the hogmistress is eligible to draft her own bluff def'n, but she shouldn't fiddle the other entrants' other than to put them all in a common format (a real temptation sometimes!); nor should the hogmaster put the 'actual' def'n in his own words, as this could be viewed as an attempt to negatively influence voting for said actual [in other words, cite your source]

- postfinally, remember: we don' need no stinkin' roolz (until people start analysizing® the results).
