NO !! What sort of an organiser are you if you can't count.... I need to be 6th !!

But neither can I.... I thought there were only 6 in it... so thought last was good.

Not so now that there are 7 !!

 

Here is the revised plan.......

Let @mmmatron win, because we think she's lovely, even if she doesn't backflush her Vesuvius regularly enough.

Don't vote for @salty..... let him have 7th and last place, no prize and bask in the ignominy of a truly Nordic points haul.

As for @hotmetal it looks like he's going to get a bag of Bella beans for creeping out of the woodwork and is unlikely to be causing any trouble.

As things stand we, well I suppose I mean I, need @Hasi to get at least one more vote.

Then, and this is most important, in the event of a tie for 6th, 5th, 4th or whatever, it MUST be decided by forum name in alphabetical order !

 

That way... the marmalade is MINE !!!!

WHAT ? !!!

Are you trying to tell me that there's only one set of prizes overall?

Why wasn't this made clear in the first place?

If you ask me, this has been a c*ck-up from start to finish!

That @MildredM couldn't run a Pour Down in a Coffee Shop !

 

Marmalade.... who needs it !

Well that’s nice, isn’t it. I do my flipping utmost to bring fun and joy to the forum this Christmas, shouldering the whole responsibility of forum entertainments this Christmas without support or encouragement. I’m not getting paid, you know. I do this for the love of the forum - I didn’t even win the raffle, I was so sure I would but I didn’t. And then I come over here to be among friends and THIS . . . THIS attack on my running abilities. WELL! You know what you can do with that ruddy marmalade if you should be lucky enough to get your paws on it? If you don’t know, I’m not telling you - my adjudication assistant will tell you on my behalf. Humph.

Hahahhaaa while the read was good fun, has anybody noticed our very own Head of Entertainment had let slip that she's keeping an assistant who, according to my logic, isn't being paid?!

 

Not that your shillings would be worth much in the near future, but hey it smells like slavery in there...
