    My first two Avatar Selection Polls went well. Mirth Closeup was the first winner, and Mossy was the second. I appreciate everyone who participated.

    However, Mossy feels he's done his time and he wants a break, so its time for a change.

    Once again I'll run the poll for 5 days, and whichever one wins I'll keep for at least 40 days and 40 nights. I've brought back the top contenders from the first two contests, along with six new selections. You can vote for multiple choices, but once you've voted you can't come back and change it. Feel free to campaign for your favorite choice. I'm from Chicago, so I don't accept "bribes", but campaign contributions, job offers, and gifts are cheerfully accepted. :p

    I think you should use one of your earlier works:

    As they trail the PAC pack, will Cam and Ides of March drop out and endorse Romney?

    It is a Kosher Pig, so you can get the West Palm Beach and Dearborn, Michigan contingents to vote for it.
    (note the t-shirt I was wearing while working on it, if you can't read it, it says "certified kosher"; it was from a hotdog stand in Maywood Park, IL. note also that I was significantly younger back then).

    What if we go to all the work of selecting your new avatar, and then Jay Leno decides he wants to be it? :confused:

    I think we need a contest to select bobsgt's new avatar. :D
    Some of them, like today's, are rather scary. :p

    I think bobsgt needs a rotating carousel applet, so his avatar switches every 20 seconds.

    The bribes I've been offered to change my avatar, while generous, have not yet been sufficient to make me pull the trigger.
    When do we get the Millard Fillmore avatar? ;)

    Here's a larger image of the Canadian Lynx. It's installed as part of a huge wall water feature at a resort in the Aspen area (IIRC it's in Avon).

    All excellent choices, tough choice between Cdn Lynx, pig and solemn, but I chose the Lynx.

    Calling ACMM to vote for the Canadian lynx. Northern cats should stick together.

    This is rigged for the traif animal. I tried to vote for the hamburger eater a few more times and was not allowed. What is up with that Mr. G?

    "Multiple votes allowed" means you can select multiple choices when you first vote; however, you can't come back and change or add to your vote.

    Note that it is a Kosher pig, not a trayf pig. :) (notwithstanding the fact that it is an Episcopalian pig, since it resides about 160 feet above ground level on the west front of the Washington Cathedral).

    But you are from the Chicago area. What would Blago say?

    Duly noted.
