As an impartial observer, I need to sample both entries at least twice. Please forward to me, 2 samples, each, for my bipartisian taste and flavor analysis. The result will be an unbiased judgement based on my own opinion and mood. These dang things are getting harder to choose. Some of you guys should be on the Food Channel. Dat's it the BBQ-Brethren Channel. It could work :idea::idea::idea:

You might be onto something. Nah, it would never work. Someone would show up on TV drunk wearing a thong and the whole thing would get shut down.

Wouldn't be me though.

I don't wear thongs.

I would go butt nekkid.

I thought we were doing that whole "everyone to a nice beach to vote in person at the expense of the two participants" thing...

Whoa! We were tied for quite a while, now Gore is taking a bit of a lead! As long as we don't need a recount in the end, that would be nice!:cool:

OK, just in case my joke about holding my vote to the end had any impacts, I went ahead and made my vote. It was very tough, that's the reason I didn't vote actually. I couldn't make up my mind. Went with Gore. Maybe it's a Mad Scientist thing? I dunno. Actually, it was the doneness of the beef, the onions, all that. Just edged out the pork sammich for me.

I'd still be much happier with sex on the beach. These votes are too stressful!

Had to stick with my original vote after all. I'd happily consme both in mass quantaties.

I did a poll among the Brethren to decide how to handle ties. Options were to either...

1. Share the victory.
2. Re-poll with just the tied entries, with another tie resulting in shared victory.
3. Tied entrants cook new dishes and we vote on those.

#2 was chosen by quite a large margin, so I'm going with that. Personally, I voted for #1 (along with a few others), but a lot more people liked #2 better.

The only problem is that I think people didn't know what they were voting for. They thought that a vote for "Sex on the Beach" meant they actually had to have sex with us on the beach and decide the winner from that! :shock:

Hey Guys...

I gotta play on the heart strings... It's my daughters 12th Birthday today. She asked me to tell you guys to vote for me..... C'mon, I know it's unfair but frankly, my daughter is more important that Gore gnawing my head off!

Cheers!

Wow! That's a 13-point swing, since I checked last. I should remind the Brethren that Bill is in Australia, so for us his daughter's birthday isn't actually TODAY! (international dateline ambiguity mod).

Gore

PS Happy Birthday, SmokinAussieDaughter! My oldest daughter also is turning 12 today (give or take a couple of months :biggrin:).

Can vegemite be used as a slather, or is it more of a wet rub? Or a thick sauce ala Blues Hog? Is it even moist? Maybe it's a dry rub. Doesn't look like something that can be injected.

I hear vegemite is good with some Foster's.

It can be molded into a turd shape and flushed.

Oh Man it's so close....

Now, a little confession... Yes, it was my daughters birthday yesterday, but with the Time Zone Mod going on here, I thought there was almost no time to go, so what I might say would not influence the vote enough to put me in the lead... so far. Now, there's ony a vote or two in it and I don't know how much time to go at all...

BUT IT'S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!!!! :shock:

Serious! :grin:

Cheers!
