And the winner is…

Thanks to everyone who voted in the Second Annual VWXYNot? Readers’ Choice Comment of the Year Award!

It was a close race between the top three contenders, but luckily for me we have a clear winner, and I don’t have to cast a deciding vote!

RPS77 wins!!!

The full winning comment was “Just think – until the development of the internet, bathroom graffiti was almost the only way for strangers who never saw each other to exchange random insults.”

Congratulations, RPS77! Very nice work. Email me at vwxynot [at] gmail and let me know which email address to send your Amazon gift certificate to!

(Henry and Chall, you too – I still haven’t sent you your prizes as I don’t know which email addresses you use on Amazon!)

Thanks again to everyone for your comments and friendship in 2010 – and I’m looking forward to an excellent bloggy 2011!

    Congrats, RPS77!

    And I’m stoked to have been tied for second! Clearly, my New Year’s resolution is to comment on Cath’s blog more!

  2. RPS77 says:

    Wow, I did not expect that! Thank you to everyone who voted for my comment(s)!

    I’ve sent the email.

  3. Cath@VWXYNot? says:

    Yes, well done Beth! RPS77 went into the lead almost from the start, but you and Eva almost caught him!

    RPS77, congratulations again! It was an excellent comment!

    I’ll sort out the certificate within the next 24 hours

    Bob, your comment may just have been slightly too obscure for voters who don’t follow Canadian politics 🙂

  4. Excellent! …and I agree with Beth’s resolution! 🙂

    I am shocked, SHOCKED I say, that I couldn’t come up with anything better than that poor Leafs/Monkeys comment.

    Must try harder to be witty this year. Um… er… yeah right.

    Congrats RPS77!

    And Bob-O, three is way more respectable than my measly one! Hmmmmph!

    Excellent contest, Cath! Can’t wait to see what great comments this blog will get in 2011!

  7. UR, I think everyone should add that to their resolutions!

    Ricardipus, you had lots of excellent comments – that was just my favourite, which is the only criterion!

    Eco, glad you enjoyed it!

    Oh, I somehow missed that bathroom graffiti-Internet comment the first time around. Well done and congrats, RPS77.
