Subject: Voting Thread For ABC3(#) *** results posted ***

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 06/21/07 at 12:25 am

Welcome to the
ABC3 (#)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC3(#) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday July 4th
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
50 Ways To Bore The Listeners

2.  Agrimorfee

Agrimorfee, your parody "7 Of 9" is one of the most intricately clever, well paced, and humorously slick parodies I've ever read on AmiRight.  The way it matches the pacing of Prince's singing on the OS & the way its subject matter fits so cleverly with the rhythm and drum sections of the OS are nothing short of amazing. 

5 points for #2.  Agrimorfee 7 Of  9
4 points for #5.  Arwen 50 Days To Find A Lover
3 points for #6.  Kristof Robertson 88 Lines About 44 Strange Dates
2 points for #8.  Stuart McArthur 1989
1 point  for #4.  Cat 50 Ways To Cheat At Testing

Wow: talk about leaving the best til last! Each parody submitted here could've easily medalled in any of the other rounds (IMHO)
But, alas, I'm only allowed 5 votes, so here goes

5 pts: Cat's unscrupulous ways
4 pts: Red Ant's repetetive malaise
3 pts: Arwen's Dees, Gregs and Rays
2 pts: Stu's nostalgia-filled craze
1 pt: Charny's girl-getting plays

Great round, everyone! See you in Year 4!!!!!
