Subject: Voting Thread For ABC4(F) - *** results posted ***

Written By: Stuart McArthur on 10/31/07 at 11:34 pm

Welcome to the
ABC4 (F)
Voting Thread



Voting deadline for ABC4(F) is midnight (amiright time)     Wednesday November 14th
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 or ABC3
- 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 ABC4 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.  Matthias
Full Graveyard Of Cliched Screams
          Dave's recording here


2.  Agrimorfee

          youtube here


3.  Cat

Stu, the name of my parody is Flintstone (not plural) Cartoon. Not that big of a deal, just want to be precise.
Also, I had a link for the original lyrics on youtube, in case anyone wants it.

Results of the ABC4 F-Round

1st place with 35 points:            "Fillings" by Cat
2nd place with 26 points:          "A Few Things I've Seen In My Time" by Stuart McArthur
3rd place with 17 points:            "Filling My Prescription" by Jeff Reuben

******************

Matthias..............................16
Agrimorfee...........................12
Mikey Squirrel......................9

no disqualifications 

Cat got a perfect score - all the 5s available to her - Amiright historians can check, but I'm tipping that's the first time that's ever happened in a SOTM or an ABC

Thanks for my votes everyone, and congrats also to Jeff!

see you in the G's

Woo-hooo! Thanks to everyone who endured the acute dental pain long enough to give me a 5! ;D I'm very honored to have made ABC history like that!

Also congrats to Stu and Jeff—you two deserve it!
