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

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 02/28/07 at 11:17 pm

Welcome to the
ABC3 (S)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(S) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday March 14
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)

Well, there are always a couple of cuts I really didn't want to make, in this particular comp in was Charnstar, Red Ant, Rick Cormier and Mikey Squirrel. . .however, these five were really superb in my opinion and deserved the nod for outstanding performances. . .

5th Place, 1 Point goes to Michael McVey and She's Always Fumin'
I'll admit, I initially thought of cutting this one because it wasn't drag out hilarious, but the song is so well written and the purpose of the song kinda puts it's importance of being mentioned in the Top 5

4th Place, 2 Points go to Agimorefee and The Story of Dumbo
You can't honestly say this parody wasn't fun, and it's always nice to read a comedious story with very little hidden comedy.  This one was actually on the intellectual side as well.

3rd Place, 3 Points go to Conqueror with Someone Could You Spare Me A Dime
One of the best Conqueror Parodies I've read. . .and very funny.  With the way Britney is losing her mind slowly, I would not let her see this parody. . .but great job here.

2nd Place, 4 Points go to Matthias with She Loves Meat
Who doesn't?  This Beauty and the Beast masterpiece reveals the true feelings of Beauty and the real reason she didn't want to be with the Beast. . .not enough meat. . .wink wink. . .anyhow, great parody Matthias, Disney is always fun to do, but you did it brilliantly.

1st Place, 5 Points go to Adagio with Sittin' On Your Witts
The OS is one of the most fun songs I've ever had to listen to while reading a parody, I never even thought to parody this one.  But to take such a fun song like Puttin' On the Ritz and make it even more fun?  Adagio, your song won this round in my book, and so the voting continues. . .
