Crap...I blew the timing.  I got it in my head that we had until the 18th for some reason.  I would be able to post it tonight for tomorrow's parody update.  If that's too late, I understand...it's totally my fault.  I'll vote on all the entries either way.

Well.....because I want to engender a spirit of FUN with this comp, I'll let you sneak in the back door. I'll add it to the voting list as soon as I'm able; BUT......if anyone wants to vote before your entry goes on the list, they are completely entitled to.
(Sheesh...this is what my day job's like!  ;))

No, tomario; you can vote from now. That will be Jeff's only sanction for missing the cutoff.

making people feel sorry for me DOES work

I've never voted for someone because I felt sorry for them.  Give yourself some credit, your song (in my opinion) was one of the five funniest of the group.

Wow...what a fun little thing you've started up Kristof!  I enjoyed all of the parodies entered for this round...and accidentally got a little smarter, I think.  Dammit. 

Oh well...narrowing it down was tough...and then putting them in order was even tougher...but here you go...

5 points for #3, Johnny D.
4 points for #6, Stuart
3 points for #5, Matthias
2 points for #9, Jeff
1 point for #8, Kristof

And...I just realized that I'm the only girl playing...I don't know if I should feel scared, or special...or...a little bit of both?  Either way...I'd like you to all remember what your mothers taught you..."Ladies First!"  ;)
