Subject: October SOTM Voting thread - RESULTS POSTED

Written By: philbo on 11/10/09 at 9:41 am

Note to new participants: Welcome, and good luck. Please read all guidelines carefully. Especially, please make sure to read all the entries and vote by the end of the month. The SOTM is not so much a contest as a feedback exchange. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, either in this thread or via personal message. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

~~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.

~~You're not allowed to vote for your own song.

~~Once you've posted a vote, you're not allowed to change it.

~~Voting continues until the last day of the month ends.

~~Anyone who's participated in a SOTM contest may vote.

~~By entering, you are agreeing to read and comment on all the other entries and vote.

~~Anyone who enters but does not both comment on all entries and vote by the end of the month is disqualified and may not participate next month, while all points will be forfeited, an entrant who has been disqualified may still participate next month if (s)he goes back and comments on all entrants from the month (s)he got disqualified prior to the end of the entry field (s)he is trying to get involved in.

~~In the event of a tie, the parody with the most first place votes wins.
If it's still tied, the parody with the most second place votes wins. and so on
If the points total and votes are identical, it will be left as a legitimate tie

~~Any entrant whose votes don't show a time stamp prior to midnight on the last day of the month (ie. according to the "inthe00's meantime" clock as it appears BEFORE you log in - not a timezone corrected version) is disqualified, no exceptions.

~~A medal known as the FUCA shall be awarded to the highest ranking parody which did not make the month's podium and is of an original song which has not previously earned any medal

5 points - #5. Ate At McDonald's™, Guy DiRito
4 points - #7. Smurfalicious, Jeff Reuben
3 points - #6. Printer's On The Fritz (Among Other Things!), Arwen
2 points - #2. Memetic Mutation, the_conqueror_of_parodies
1 point  - #1. Health Care Plan, Peter Andersson a.k.a K1chyd

Couldn't really decide between the first three and the last two - in an ideal world, I'd have given them as a 3-way tie for first and a 2-way for fourth.

And to all those who'd not heard any Tim Minchin before this round, there's plenty more to look at - and most of them are fantastic.  It's not often I'll admit that I think one of my parodies isn't as funny as the original, but topping one of my favourite Minchin songs was maybe a tough call.

Unless anyone wants to correct my maths before I post this... (didn't think so).. I declare the results as:

First place, with 27 points: Smurfalicious Jeff
Second place, with 23 points: Arwen's knackered printer
Third place, with 22 points: Inedible Me

In fourth, with 14 points, Guy DiRito's not-so-happy meal - and seeing as I can't find Lady Madonna on the list, he's this month's FUCA winner.
