Free Republic Voting Thread: 2007 Today's Toons Favorites (Preliminary Round)
various | 1/2/08 | various

Here it is...Free Republic's 3rd annual Today's Toons favorites. I'd like to publicly thank FReepers corbie, ferri, StoneGiant, DejaJude, KevinLauer, honolulugal & reagan_fanatic for helping me with some/all of the monthly voting. Via this voting, we tallied the selections (~15/month) which received the most votes. Those monthly selections make up this preliminary round. If you'd like to help for 2008, FReepmail me & I'll tell you what would be involved. Right now, there are just 4 of us who vote on a regular basis. Last year, a few of you were disappointed that some of your favorite cartoons/pics didn't make it into the preliminary round; here's your chance to make sure that this doesn't happen again...so speak now or forever hold your peace!!

There are some "rules" here, but not many. When selecting your favorites, use your own criteria. Some like funny, clever, pithy, touching, etc. Some like cartoons, photoshops, animations, etc. So, judge each entry unto itself. As the one who adds click-on audios, videos, pics, toons to existing entries, I judge these to be part of that entry as a whole...you, of course, can ignore that if you wish...but only at your own peril ;-)

Each entry is numbered (1-180). Entries 2, 6 & 10 involve some animation. I put them near the top because if your PC is like mine, once you click on an audio attachment the animation ceases to animate (unless you refresh/reload the page). So, you'll see the animations up front.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to send me (via comment in this thread/FReepmail/e-mail) the numbers, in any order, of your 30 (or less) favorites. If you are caught sending > 30, I won't disavow your existence, but will ask you to remove any excess. This offer will self-destruct at 5 PM ET, Sunday, Jan. 6, 2008. Good luck!

If certain pics/toons don't download (even after a refresh/reload), send me their numbers (which will show up) & I'll try to help. My plan is to post the 30 (plus ties) finalists in a new thread on 1/7/08 (I suggest that dial-up users wait for this round) & to ask you to select your 10 favorites in order of preference. The results of this final vote will be posted on 1/14/08. The decision of the judge (Today's Toons editor-in-chief) is final! Questions? Bring it on! And now, on with the show!!

I am honored to have made "the cut" at #171! I put that together after I saw a bunch of FReepers tossing the phrase around.

My vote is for the largest "buried story the media couldn't stop". The surge worked and the defeato-crats are in a panic over their recorded treason advocating defeat. I like #43 to that end.

Not necessarily in the right order, but I like 174, 118, 65, 66, 32, 31, 18, 16, 13, 178, 166, 169, 164, 63, 52, 177, 146, 127, 140, 134, 126, 79, 75, 68, 57, 44, 43, and 30

178 is definitely my favorite though
