2007 Today's Toons Favorites: Results
various | 1/14/08 | various

Posted on 01/14/2008 4:54:47 AM PST by pookie18

After starting with >13,000 possibilities, the 3rd annual Best Of Today's Toons is over & all the votes have been tallied. Neither hanging nor pregnant chads were encountered & Diebold equipment was not used. First, a few stats. This was the closest voting to date. 29 of the 40 finalists received 1st-place votes. There were 82 valid entries received & thanks to all of you who took the time to vote!! Votes were cast, in order of preference, for between 1 & 10 of the finalists. Cartoonists Michael Ramirez(12), Sam Ryskind(3), Glenn McCoy(3), Eric Allie(2), Mark Thornhill(2) & Chris Muir(2) all had the multiple items in the finals. FReepers reagan_fanatic & ThePeoplesCube had one item apiece. The method of scoring was as follows: A 1st-place vote received 10 pts., a 2nd-place vote earned 9 pts., ..., down to a 10th-place vote which got 1 pt.

If you'd like to inquire about possibly helping (as one FReeper has already done) with the Best Of 2008, FReepmail me by the end of this month at the latest (shortly after which the Best Of January 2008 will be determined) & I'll tell you what would be involved. And now, the results:

#40 (51 pts./0 1st-place votes; finished tied for 22nd in the preliminary round):

#39 (52 pts./0 1st-place votes; finished tied for 17th in the preliminary round):

Great Job, Pookie18 !!! And Thanx for ALL your efforts on our behalf.

Proud to see that three of my four picks ended up in the top 9. Seems I may be ‘in synch’ with a large fraction of your voting population. Frankly, that surprised me, considering the results of the earlier voting.

Regards,

21stCenturion

No. You voted in both the preliminary & the final rounds already (must've been a long couple of weeks ;-) & this thread gave the final results of the voting. (reread the intro when/if you get a chance).

Following the results of our voting, sent virtual trophies to those who finished in the top 10. Where did I get these trophies? They were designed & provided to me by FReeper/cartoonist KevinLauer. Here's a smaller version of what one looked like:
