I liked them all, really. Quite interesting. Gabe came through with that sort of cynical view of things that living in Cleveland has the tendency to install in one. Probably why there are more working, syndicated, comic strip artists who are from Greater Cleveland than anywhere else. It's a fact.
Wirthling's take on sitcking the whole heartwarming redemption scene into a modern setting was hilarious. He was very much a "crazy-assed cracker" if you look at it.
Bottlerockett's strip re-wrote the whole thing for gamers and put an amusing twist on things. A bit more "Scrooged" than "A Christmas Carol", but a hoot.
ObiJo's mistaken identity idea is hilarious and would probably make a good production for a stage play.
evil_d's Lowpass take was a bit of an inside joke, but pretty funny to those of us who tend to live here. :- )
I actually thought mine didn't suck too badly. A bit of a tired joke, but another dose of that Cleveland jaundice tinted humour for ya.
And the winner is:

This thing worked for me in a lot of ways.
1): The character set is friggin' hilarious and works well as a sight gag.
2): It's a really good riff on the concept we were working inside of.
3:) Amazed Porno Bunny is a racist ****weed and I'm glad he took the **** out of him. It works as an inside joke and it stands on it's own, as well. Albiet on some pretty weird legs. :- )
4): It made me laugh my ass off.
There you have it. Thanks. It was a gas.
Rock on, then
I wanted my half in the middle and I wound up on the edge.
