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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 09/27/06 at 9:39 am

Welcome to the
ABC3 (H)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(H) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday October 11th
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.........


1.  Red Ant
Hide Like A Weasel

2.  Matthias
Happy Holidays (Now Leave Me Alone Until Next Year)

3.  Agrimorfee
Hilarious

4.  meow7822
Half Past Nine

5.  Scathe
The Hokey Money Song

6. Kristof Robertson
Hookers At My Front Door

         Kristof's recording here


7.  Stu McArthur

8.  Jeff Reuben
Help The Pirates Screw The Songs Of Acts Indecent

9.  Johnny D
Heinous Joys Your Man's Desiring

I've got 5 letters with more entries than I.

I try to restrain myself from using "I" in any of my parodies, which probably wasn't a good idea, because now I only have my newbie stuff to play around with....  :-[
