Ok. Once again I had to enlist the help of my wife because making these decisions alone sucks. And once again I'd like to flog the dead horse and say that not having a voting system is hard.
Not being able to use the letter 'e' is harder than I thought. It's more restrictive than narrowing character or background choices down to one or two, I thought. You all did a great job with it.
The winner I chose was the one my wife and I both seemed to laugh at the most. And that comic was...

I should point out that since with each contest we're dealing with a tiny little dictatorship, the moderator can bend the rules as he/she sees fit. Which obviously I've done. Despite the fact that bunnerabb used an 'e' in his comic, we thought it was funny.
Since this is all in fun, I would hope none of you gets uptight over this decision. Ironically, it was bunnerabb who got a little miffed when bottlerocket won #4, stretching the 'woodenbadger' phrase quite a bit in his entry. This is a little different than creative interpretation and more breaking the rules... But damn it, it was funny. And that's what this whole contest is supposed to be about.
If anyone would like to voice displeasure with my choice you can forward your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org and they'll be dealth with posthaste.
So take it away, bunnerabb....
