BUMP! Name Poll

Vote Time Waiters



Although it doesn't matter what the results are. The pope is going to chose the name for us anyway. Currently KarMann is in the leading for pope status. But anyone who fits the bill for epic weirdness is allowed to join into the running.

Once a year, we have fun as a way of blowing off steam from dealing with the forum the rest of the time. People like Az, who has to deal with SB. People like Hammer, who is 100% awesome all the time.

If you can't read the announcements and choose your course of action, we can always choose it for you. I recommend choosing to leave for a week.

Lol. The T-i-m-e conversion got converted itself. A-r-e became b-e (which, in my script, became i-s/a-m/b-e).

As a Cardinal, I believe it is my vote that decides the pope. As it was peewee_RotA who gave me that status, I vote he be in the running, too.

Just woke up and checked the latest couple of images. Saw 2 dots on the screen, one moving, one not. Back and forth. One moving, one not. Reach out and scrap off the piece of unmoving dust that landed overnight.

I agree with the ball and dog hypotheses. I am picturing Jeph Jacques dog Shelby to come running across the screen.
