Last week I said I was going to write something about Turkish prisons.
That one never got written... mostly because I kept wanting to reference Captain Oveur from some 1980's movie.
But an idea came to me once the sleepwalking topic was posted, so I'll be integrating them into one story.
A semi-related rant (UPDATE: And an update) below the fold, so be warned.
Laurence addressed all the people voting for someone without listening to the podcast. And you know what, I totally agree with him!
I'm just not gonna be so nice about it.
I've got nothing against Jenny, I really don't. She's great.
But I do have a problem with people who tell the other eight people (and that Z guy), who bust their ass putting their submissions together that their work just doesn't matter.
So, I started to listen but my attention span was extremely short, I had no interest in listening to a guy (a bunch of guys...) I've never heard of before and so I jumped straight to the voting.
Screw listening. I just voted for you. You are winning!
Thank you, all you ignorant fucking human sheep, for coming in and taking a shit on the entire idea of the contest. It's not a fucking popularity contest people, it's a "who had the best story" contest. Either listen and vote your conscience or fuck off, ok?
Now, seriously, I'd like to thank those of you who contribute. Without y'all the weekly challenge wouldn't exist. I'd also like to thank all the people that listen and vote their conscience every week, you guys are awesome.
Let's just not have all this happen again, ok? :)
FULL DISCLOSURE: I did vote for her, but because I thought her story was the best. What can I say, I go for the odd stories.
UPDATE: Jenny's disqualified herself from the contest. As Laurence says about it:
A rare instance of honor among bloggers and podcasters.
I'm saluting you right alongside him.
