Just about the 2nd last edition.
Ok I had too much Guinness that night. Also, I've always had an over active imagination. LOL
Welcome to PF SophiaElection Special
Welcome to a rushed edition bringing you the consolidated view of the race to become PF’s best member. (Ed – define best and define member
). You will all have noticed that about 90% of the input this week has all been directed at this thread. I know you can’t read all 4,876 posts and, if you are a new member, you wouldn’t be able to make head nor tail of it even if you did. So in the best traditions of ale fuelled, content light journalism The PF Omnibus Edition Team have worked through the night (Ed – tea break more likely
) to bring you a succinct and easy to digest summary of this, the most important election since that to elect the new president of the Bexleyheath Womens Institute.
Some background first. Doggie G started the race with an apparently innocent request to find out whether he was still loved here on PF. Yes we know he phrased it in an abstract way but we all know it was a cry from the heart. Anyway, he got a few compliments and then a few others started suggesting alternatives for the PF pin up position (Ed - page 236 of the Kama Sutra
). Before we knew it Seanus the sheep had arbitrarily declared himself the great power broker and within a few posts he was presiding over an official election to be El Presidente of PF with the annexed powers to maim, kill or banish dissenters following the official inauguration session down the Rose and Crown. In the finest traditions of project management everywhere, nobody has a clue as to when the cut off date for voting is going to be. Seanus stated “sort of Sunday”. The leading candidates seem to think it might be Saturday. Our bet is it will be when the Sheep gets out of the pub on Sunday afternoon. Probably best not to hang around waiting though.
There have been loads of fringe candidates. Some of them put themselves forwards (shameless hussies). Others were nominated along racial, religious or taste in vodka lines. Some were nominated by new members who thought that they had nice names, pretty avatars or that they were animals of every shape and size. There were brief bursts of excitement when the fringe candidates gained a few votes followed by the inevitable despair as the votes dried up.
Slowly a pattern emerged. Two heavyweight candidates arose from the general melee of ridiculous promises, brown paper bags stuffed full of Zloty and over kissed babies. On the one hand stood Doggie G. A new dog was revealed. Proud, humble, devoted to world harmony. Support for him came from surprising quarters. Daisy’s cats tried to vote for him. ShelleyS was vociferous in support of the well groomed and friendly doggie.
So things went well for the Doggie until a new heroine from over there emerged to face him down in the televised debates and challenge the validity of his proposed policies. Miranda quickly grew into a real threat and attracted support from all around the Globe (Ed – and the Rose and Crown?).
The race has become too tight to call and this one will go to the wire. People have put their futures on the line in supporting one or other of these two. Sadly the on-line system to bring us the latest voting appears to have gone down so we cannot bring you the latest position (Ed – Seanus is down the pub then?
). We have tried to conduct an exit poll but with little success. We interviewed noimmigration as he left the polling booth earlier but could not understand a word of what he said.
Rest assured the we here will bring you the latest news after it has happened
