Subject: Voting Thread For ABC3 (D) - *** results posted ***

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 08/02/06 at 9:37 am

Welcome to the
ABC3 (D)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(D) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday August 16th
No votes date-stamped after the voting deadline will be accepted - no exceptions



Vote by replying to this thread with your five favorites in order:

1st choice........5 points
2nd place.........4 points
3rd place..........3 points
4th place..........2 points
5th place..........1 point

or in algebraic terms, p = 6 - r     (p=points, r=rank)



RULES
- Any parody beginning with the current letter is eligible, except parodies that have been entered into ABC1 or ABC2
- You're not allowed to vote for your own parody
- Once you've posted a vote, you're not allowed to change it
- Anyone who's participated in any previous ABC contest may vote
- Any entrant who hasn't left a comment on all entries is disqualified and may not participate in the next letter
- Any entrant who doesn't vote by the voting deadline (above) is disqualified and may not participate in the next letter



ALSO
Under no circumstances will a vote that missed the voting deadline be accepted (even by 1 second)
However the resulting disqualification from entry to the next ABC3 comp may be over-ruled, if you do the following...

   1.  Post an "appeal" on this thread giving your excuse for missing the deadline, and plead for mercy
   2.  If your plea wins the sympathy of 3 other entrants your disqualification from the next round will be overturned
        Your late votes will still not count though 
        (if less than 4 entrants in the comp, only 2 sympathetic "Thumbs Ups" are required)



And the entries are.........

Don't Drive So Close To Me

Pffffff....too tough.

I've had to leave out some VERY enjoyable parodies...again...to comply with the strictures of the comp, but I ain't happy about it!

5 pts: Rick
In-bred parodies for me are like Big Macs; I KNOW they're no good for me, but.....

4 pts: Cat
That combination of wanton stupidity and Ringo Starr is too good to ignore

3pts: Agri
Yee-haw! A CHEEEESY OS given a lovely alcoholic topping.

2pts: Arwen
Who remembers the Amiright Party? We need to start campaigning again...

1 pt: conqueror bob
Talk about lifting your game and delivering the goods! I see a bright future for the young Aussie
