    Yeah, I'm pretty disillusioned with the whole thing, at this point. Lotta great names, but the seeding is always ridiculous and people are too stupid to vote like I want them to.

    He'll definitely perish in the second round at the hands of Eliza Fox Teats, even if he gets past Teena Touch, but I'm fine with that.

    I thought they were more likely to take my colleague German Priks or Hotel.com's Ebony Bunz.

    its hard for me to see this as a NOTY contender because he was big news here about 15 years ago so I'm desensitised to it.

    I do remember chuckling when he crossed paths with Ed Balls.

    Truth be told, this might be their best bracket ever.

    I'm not voting for shit though except Bird Lovegod, our new overlord.

    No. Articles from his The Fintech Times and Disrupts Magazine publications pop up at work. He's a pretty big player in the fintech startups scene, by all accounts.

    some razor-close finishes in the Bulltron R1. A late surge got Guy Hands past Alpha McMath (I always feel that the subject of the intro gets a little boost)

    Shaft Cubit missed out by one vote to H. King Buttermore III. Voting levels seem pretty consistent across the poll though so I don't think we are looking at fol play.


    Sithole R1 voting is up:

    I can't split these:

    Heavenly Joy Jerkins v Tugg Snowbarger

    Those are two elite contenders with different qualities. Heavenly Joy Jerkins has a delightful lyricism to it and benefits from the middle name. Tugg Snowbarger is coming in extremely strong with an uncommon and uncommonly hilarious last time, plus a jerk off allusion.

    The tiebreaker for me is the fact that Heavenly Joy is a 6 year old Black girl who sang at the RNC and Tugg is a San Diego real estate broker.



    I laughed out loud so hard.

    Chrotchtangle R1 polls are open and, going by early voting, its opening up a bit for The Bird:
