What happens if you didn't post a song for the last competition, are you not allowed to post one for the next Decathlon? Or do people just not vote for you this round?

Ok, Ok tomario...well spotted on my (deliberate) mistakes.  ;) I put the thread up last when I was half asleep; this is hard work, y'know! All fixed now..

Right on the second count, Matthias...no DQs but you miss out on votes for the round you didn't enter. BUT I still expect you to vote for others parodies. I'm giving Josh until about midnight GMT to post, then I'll close for entries.

I'm prepared to let your entry in past the 1 day grace deadline, josh, on two conditions...

1) People can start voting now, regardless of your missing parody, and

2) You forfeit 1 point off your final total

If you're willing to accept these terms, post your submission on the other Event 2 thread as soon as you can, and I'll post it as soon as I can

Yeh ok that's fair enough, my own fault really. I have written the parody and submitted it. I will post link ASAP.

It's a parody to Kelly/Ozzy Osbournes Changes called Emo's

And now I have to hurry off and finish my entry for the next event. If I'm lucky, I'll have time to write my WDSTF parody before the next event starts. Bet I won't.

Thank you and good night (technically, I'm correct, beause the time you get to read this, I'll be sleeping! Stupid time zones...)

Oh CRAP!  Emergency!!!

AmiRight isn't letting me on tonight...I don't know what the problem is...it's actually been giving me grief all day.  I'm anticipating a pretty hectic day tomorrow, so I wanted to get my votes in tonight...but it's not going to happen. 

However...if Kristof PROMISES to give me all of the 11th...(i.e. don't get any ideas from your early closing of the voting thread pal, Stuart)...I will just make sure to do it vote tomorrow.

I'm probably not going to to be able to get to my PC until Tuesday a.m. GMT anyway, Arwen, so you should be safe.
