Game on!

Hey, guess what? I made the finals for Humor Blogger of the year. That’s right, thanks to your selfless act of voting last time I ruled over my category 19 votes to 12. Well, Amyoops got 10 gazillion votes at the same time in her category…

This is serious! Amy is kicking my ass on the finals for Humor Blogger of the year voting. Do you really want to see her kick VE’s ass? Don’t answer that!

So get off your fingertips and vote. Do it for democracy. Do it for peace on Earth. Do it to appease your conscience. Do it…do it ‘til you’re satisfied! (Wait, that’s a cheesy 70s song) None of those have anything to do with this but it sounds really good. I’ve always wanted to say those things. So pass it to everyone you know. Post it at the library. Pray for it at the Church choir get together. Vote HERE (scroll down, you'll see it...)

Seriously, please vote but only if you think I’m worthy over the others for the title of most awesomest humor blogger. I mean come on; who gives you trivial nonsense nearly everyday. THINK OF THE GNOMES! Their feelings will be hurt if they lose embarrassingly!

As always, click on the pic if you want to REALLY read what they think...

I'll vote because I want to know what you REALLY do all day. Plus I'm a little scared of clowns too.

Oh, I think you are funny too.

Kurt said...

I looked at Amy Oops' blog to see if it was better than yours. I can't just vote for you because you say so! I didn't see much original content - just lots of stuff mined from the Internet. So I voted for you!

VE said...

incredible woody - I don't know that you really want to know...especially if you're scared of clowns! But then again, I don't even want to really know what I do all day...

kurt - I'm glad you did. I would hope that everyone felt they voted for the funniest. I'd vote for Amy if I thought she was funnier. Well...probably not but at least I'm honest about it.

Roy Scribner said...

Oh crap! This isn't the Amy Oops site?

Matt-Man said...

We need to preserve the humorous legacy of your teenage era sweater and fucked up hair. I'll do what I can. Cheers!!

Matt-Man said...

Holy Crap...the "Amy Oops" blog should be renamed, "Amy Sucks". It's regurgitated and unfunny stuff. Regurgitation in itself is funny, but not when it's not your own puke.

That's why I don't participate in these things; they're just popularity contests. I say that we do all what we can to help somebody as incredibly unpopular as you to drink from the chalice of victory.

I'll make sure to link you to the vote site at least a couple of times before the deadline. Cheers funny man!!

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I voted for you because you're funny AND I like you.

One without the other is like a turd without a toilet or peanut butter without chocolate. Whichever comparison doesn't gross you out.

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I'm stealin the "Chalice Of victory" from Matt Man.

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I filled the Chalice Of Victory up with hot cocoa and marshmallows, Matt Man. And there's NOTHING you can do about it.

VE said...

roy - Aack. Stabbed to the bone! Wait, your camping site wasn't the conservative coalition site?

matt-man - I knew I could count on the power of the matt-man! Yep, popularity contests for sure. Otherwise I'd see a lot of my favorite bloggers on there as well! Well, actually I like a couple of the sites in the final...but I'm ready for the chalice! Fruity rum drink with an umbrella in it please...

elastic - I love it when you compare me to a turd and a toilet! You rock! ha ha. And don't be stealin' matt-man's chalice either. Cocoa... ridiculous!

Jacki said...

I'm gonna have to go check out Amy's blog....

Oh wait. Did I say that out loud? Damn....

VE said...

jacki - WHAT?!! No, please do! Only vote for mine if you think it's funnier than the others there. I'd only feel good about it that way...

ReformingGeek said...

I'll do it for the gnomes.

They look a little cramped but you had better make some space. I'm giving out gnome-removers for Christmas this year so as people remove their unwanted gnomes, they will need homes.

Jeff said...

I don't care what that one genome says... I still want free shipping damnit!

Hey, I'll pimp you up on my blog sometime before the 31st and send all kinds of people over to vote for you. People who probably don't even know you OR like you! But they'll do it because I said so.

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

I'm flagging Amy Oops for a stiff fine under the "Shameless And Unoriginal Blog Posting" staute/measure/law thingie.

Who needs Amy Oops? We all got dorky relatives sending us the same forwarded e-mail crap that she publishes as a post.

Amy Oops: She doesn't have gnomes. She doesn't have puppies and rainbows. She doesn't have an encyclopedic knowledge of 70's cheese. Therefore she doesn't have my vote.

The Incredible Woody said...

Wait, I've been in the Land of Internet-Unconnectedness for several days and I missed the zippered tongue photo. I think I need to see that.

Quirkyloon said...

A big OUCH for Amyoops!

The gnomes are getting hostile! heh heh

VE I'm not gonna tell you who I'm voting for... (starts with a V and ends with an E).

What can I say? I'm boring and trivial amuses me...immensely!

heh heh

Good luck!

Dee said...

i voted for you! Not cause you begged, but because your the best!

cathouse teri said...

I was all headed out to vote, until I saw those fucking gnomes! Oh wait. They're not fucking... are they? ;)

I voted for ya. I'm sure you deserve it. :)

Megan said...

I voted.

Memarie Lane said...

you know, i was all set to vote until i saw the gnomes. i hate gnomes. i hate them like i hate gangsta rap.

EmmaK said...

you deserve to win. Your capacity for talking the most inane drivel is unsurpassed and I have certainly voted for you. May your well of nonsense never grow dry and your love for gnomes never die!

Megan said...

Can I vote more than once? I'll just do it from every computer in the office!

Megan said...

Can I vote more than once? I'll just do it from every computer in the office!

Megan said...

Whoops...I guess I can comment more than once...

Chris Wood said...

I've already voted for you, my little contribution to civilisation.

BTW you photoshopped over my picture? Damn.

VE said...

reforminggeek - That's a useful gift. God knows that gnomes are quite difficult to remove!

jeff - You have the power my man! And I thank your for it! We'll work on that free shipping...

elastic - You're the BEST! I'm not gonna be mean to Amy though. It's not my style of blog but she is a nice person. Now on to CRUSHING her in the vote. ha ha ha

incredible - It wasn't pretty. I'll swing by later and get your email address and send it to ya.

quirkyloon - Boring and trivial is nothing to be ashamed of. Look at me! ha ha

dee - Thank you dearie! You are the Best. I sure have a lot of best readers...

teri - I admit it, I have gnomes and I can't come up with an excuse for them. Thanks for the vote even so!!! Means a lot to me.

marie - It's your perogative to vote or not. I respect that. I will not be obnoxiously requesting beyond this.

emmak - Ah, my dear, I LOVE it when you say things like that. I'll be there for you...

chris - I would never do that! I merely superglued the gnomes to the floor so they're always available for the same pose...
megan - You are so sneaky. I think you can vote from every different computer. I have a few extra chads to purchase if that doesn't work! ha ha

Kanrei said...

Out of town for Turkeyday, but I saw your message and voted! You are now in the lead by three votes!

VE said...

kan - There you are! My disappearing friend... Sweet! You da' man!

HeyJoe said...

Done!

MJ said...

I'm glad you came by and left me a note to come by! My vote is in!

GC (God's Child) said...

done

Giggle Pixie said...

It is positively incumbent upon me to vote for you VE, because EVERY gnome deserves to have a beard. In fact, without one they're pretty fucking frightening.

And besides, I like you. So there.

VE said...

heyjoe - Why thank you sir! I know how hard it is to pry you away...and to think you were gonna go on hiatus...

mj - I knew I could count on you! Plus it gave me an excuse to get my lazy butt out to my blogging pals finally. Been awhile since I really got to enjoy going down the list!

gc - Awesome! The GC now stands for 'got counted'!!!

VE said...

giggle pixie - Yeah, it would look kinda scary if gnomes didn't have beards. Probably like clowns (shudder....). Thanks a bunch there girlie!

Uncivil said...

The last time I voted....my man and lady lost:(
Do I need to put a "Vote for VE" sign in my front yard next to the gnomes? Only your gnome knows for sure!
OK...I voted for ya.....hope it works out better than last time!

Anndi said...

When gnomes fart... do the flowers die? Or are they fertilized?

Yes, it makes a difference.

Chris Eldin said...

Dude! You're winning! But I'm not surprised.
:-)
My vote made number 53. I'll send you the bank account details later.
:-)

leelee said...

VE! VE! VE! PUPPIES AND RAINBOWS! VE! VE!!


yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

Good Luck!!


HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bonnie the Boss said...

Concider the zoo to have done their duty. Hmmm, that didn't sound right. The Zoo has done their job.... Hmm, again wrong.Aw to heck with it, we voted!

VE said...

uncivil - Thank you sir. No, the gnomes at your place are in direct contact with my gnomes and really all gnomes. Nobody is really sure how this happens...we suspect the hats...

anndi - Why of course the flowers are fertilized! It's the people nearby that should worry...

chriseldin - Why thank you dearie. Just give me summary details, you know how detailed details can be...

leelee - Now see how I told you this was a puppies and rainbows blog? How can you go wrong with that...

Nessa said...

"Every time somebody votes, a gnome gets their beard!" Is that a sexual thing?

I voted for you because I believe in shameless popularity nonsense.

Besides, you still visit my vacant lot of a blog.

Maureen said...

Voted!

You're lucky there WASN'T a finalist named Pedro... I might have voted for him! ;)

Nah, Pedro NEVER visits my blog and you do.

Good luck!!!

Dale said...

You're Gnomist! I love that.

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

You've got my vote. It was the cheesy 70s song that won me over....

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

...meaning, anyone who loves cheesy 70s music gets my vote....

G-Man said...

Well VE, your shameless pandering has indeed worked for me. You got my vote!!!Good Luck...G

VE said...

bonnie - Yeah, I happy the Zoo is there for me. Or is it that I belong in a zoo. I forget...

nessa - It's good to see you around. Like a reunion or something. Yes, I work for my votes...I only asked those that I have visited and consider blog friends!

maureen - I worried about Pedro running. I offered to have him be on my ticket but he's even lazier than I am!

dale - And proud of it. They are so mischevious...I LOVE that!

arizona - Obviously I am the KING of 70s cheese. I have a large warehouse of it.

G-man - Nothing like shameless begging to win people over...

yellojkt said...

I'm doing my part. I think you are back out in front now.

Serena said...

I voted. See my button? Looks like you're ahead, which is as it should be. Good luck!

RED MOJO said...

I voted. You're totally ahead!!! :D

justacoolcat said...

Well, you got my vote!

C said...

I totally voted for you, my friend! ;) When I voted, the stats showed that you were in the lead :)

Megan said...

Looks like you are pulling away right now. Hmm, how can we get them to close the polls early??

Gnomes! Where are you when VE needs you? You must show those Gremlins who's boss!

VE said...

yellojkt - Whew! Thanks! They sure do get a lot of votes too. Obviously they're working the girl scouts circuit...

serena - Now did I ever doubt that you'd not vote for me? No! Thanks Serena...every one counts!

red mojo - There you are girl! It's been awhile!

justacoolcat - Excellent! Thank you sir!

c - Yeah, thanks so much. I know you're pretty busy with new baby and all...

megan - Yeah, now I get to sweat bullets while the dang contest lasts all month! I think she gets a lot more traffic from Google. Mine are all from me going to visit their blog.

Alex L said...

Done and dusted, I'm just annoyed Renal Failure didnt make it through.

Anette said...

No offence Amy, but I'm more of a Ve-humor kind of a person! I need some noncence regularely!

NYD said...

I had to check out the other blogs before I could cast my vote. The truth is I didn't laugh very much at any of the entries.
I don't really understand what constitutes laughter. Although I got a giggle out of Anette.

Hey I voted for you 'cause you are original. And you really crack me up at times.

Queen Goob said...

Grabbing my gnome and heading over to vote!

Jaime said...

you've got my vote... and have been tagged.

VE said...

alex - Yeah, but it's just a flippin' popularity contest anyway. I read lots of great humor blogs that weren't even on the first round of voting.

anette - And I take my nonsense fiber regularly! Thank you.

nyd - I'm glad you did. My own personal criteria would be originality in the first place. I would think material mattered most. Thanks for the vote, my man!

queen goob - Good for you. The gnomes know what is right...

jamie - Ouch. A double-edged sword. I'll be right over for the spanking...I mean tag...

Anne said...

i voted! good luck

VE said...

anne - Thank you dear! It'll be close at least.

SarahM said...

done!

Jen said...

I voted!

Now I want one of those
stickers that reads

"I VOTED"

where the HELL
is my sticker?!?!?

VE said...

sarahM - And I thank you! (think ZZ Top song...you didn't have to do what you did but you did and...)

jen - You're so right Jen. I need a tacky sticker! Damn me! I'm gonna get right on that one. Stay tuned...

captain corky said...

Why bother praying for Peace on Earth when I can come over here and vote for it? Thanks for saving me some time dude. You get my vote!

Mr Farty said...

So yeah, I looked at Amy Oops. How did that even get nominated? And why am I not up there?

Anyway, I voted for you. When do I get my stack of gold?

VE said...

captain corky - You have boldy gone when no man has gone before (well, other than the other 100+ blogger friends that have rallied with me)

mr farty - I never say bad things about my competitors. Amy is a nice person. Now let's CRUSH her in the voting. ha ha. You're in line behind the car manufacturers awaiting bailout money as to your pot of gold...

nikkicrumpet said...

I did my duty as an American...and as a person who admires and wishes above all to promote humor....I voted. Oh yeah...and my finger slipped and I ended up voting for you :) I'll also see about getting some of my peeps (yeah I know...only old white chicks even use that word now...but it made me feel cool to type it) to vote for you too! And hey...there are 3 computers here at work....and two at home. Sheeesh I feel like a Democrat just thinking about voting that many times hehehe

Mona said...

I voted. I always find you funny :D

VE said...

nikkicrumpet - Thanks so much. It's looking like a losing battle at the moment. I guess I gotta get out more!

mona - You were gonna say 'looking' at the end there. Admit it... Thanks
