1. 91 comments, holy shit! Race really is America's national obsession. Take that, sports!
2. Y'all are a bunch of damn crackers.
3. Reading for context is not as widespread a skill as I had once assumed.
4. Apparently some people did not so easily pick up on the fact that these polls are more or less jokes as did other people.
5. There's a whole lot of jungle fever goin' on around here.
6. Give people the option to check every box and they will often do so.
7. Choosing the gag response gets less funny after the first dozen people do it.
8. The same number of people self-identified as fairly racist as did completely non-racist.
9. I am a sad little clown and everybody hates me.
10. I will be kinda glad when Forbidden Subject Poll Week is over.
Man, are some of you gonna hate me for this.
Okay, here's how it shook down.
Since I put this up late yesterday, I left to polls open until tonight to give everyone a chance to vote. And at first glance, it would appear that "my favorite firearms", the gutcore favorite of many of you mutants, tied for the lead. Now, ordinarily, when there's a tie, I pick the winner. Which I'm doing -- but not because there was a tie; because there was a legit winner, and it was "patriotic super-heroes".
"Whaaaaat?" you cry, you bloodthirsty shitheels. "Clearly, they tied with 15 each! Pick guns! I wanna look at guns for a month!" Nope. Sorry. The ballot box was stuffed, my friends. One extra vote went to the guns, due to furtive use of a pseudonym. A point could be made that I allowed this in the past, but I am disallowing to act as precedent, because the Supreme Court's decision was clearly only binding in Bush vs. Gore.
Further you say: "You are a big puss-wagon. You are only picking patriotic super-heroes because you don't want your girlfriend to think you are some kind of violent psychopath." Wrong! My girlfriend ALREADY thinks I am some kind of violent psychopath! In reality, I am picking "patriotic superheroes" because they legitimately won, and because there is no other time I can use them when it won't look kinda stupid.
