The Art Contest Finals BeginPosted: December 29, 2011
Well, the voting was close. Close enough that I thought about doing the little kid birthday party game solution and declaring everyone a winner. I could do it, and set up the semi-finalists to randomly pop up on the top of the page. I may still do that, but there has to be a winner.
Why? Why Must There Be A Winner?
Well, to start, I think I heard someone say that sometime.
Most critically, I have to get the prize out of my house. It is unseemly for me to have a Justin Bieber Toothbrush in my possession. What if something bad happened to me? People would go through my things and, inexplicably, find the Bieber Brush. What would this mean for my legacy? I need to
unload this curse bestow this gift on the person who rightly earns it.
This one was as close as it could possibly be. They tied. I did the only responsible thing. I flipped a coin.
Then I felt some concern. Who was I to assign one contestant as heads, and the other, tails? So I picked one contestant, flipped the coin, assigned them heads, and left the room. I came back a while later after considering that this the semi-final of a contest for a battery operated toothbrush and I was putting entirely too much thought into it. I closed my eyes and flipped.
And the first finalist issssssssssssssssssssssssssssss………………………………..
This one was settled by two votes.
I’m not sure which two. Who can know something like that? Clearly not I. I just know that two of you bear some responsibility here.
And the second finalist is….
