Round Three... But At What Cost?!

Hackenslash, tooth-skin barely intact, has moved on to the third round of F.A.C.A. We salute our fallen comrades, the brave and honorable Team Awesome-As-Hell. They shall not be forgotten.

But the time for mourning is past. The time for action is now! Behold the terrifying countenances of our new opponents: The Die-ities!
The good money has been on The Die-ities as tournament champs since round one. But it looks like we may just barely have a chance, if we can mobilize our base.

So, let me put my dignity to one side, folded neatly and with a rock on top of it so it won't blow away, and beg you to vote Hackenslash in Round Three! If every single person who visited this blog each day voted, we'd be in good shape. Show your love! Get a blogger account, if necessary!

I've been trying to think of something I could offer as an incentive. Like, say, I'd shave my head if Hackenslash won the tournament. But that's kind of self-serving, 'cuz I need a haircut pretty badly right now, anyway. Or I'd legally change my name to "Buster FamBam" for a year. But a judge just put the ki-bosh on the sports fan who just tried to fulfill a similar promise. Feel free to suggest other dumb-ass things I could do to bring in the dare-votes.

you could get a dumb-ass tattoo. like, you know, of a hot dog or something. something about the permanance of this particular dumb-ass thing would make it that much more enticing.

the question is:
how badly do you want to win, joel?

april said...

oh, also...

that poster up there? totally bad-ass.

make prints!

Pulpatooner said...

Hmm... I could get a tattoo of a pair of scissors.

Boy, did the lovely wife choose a bad weekend to be away from the Internet.

You could automatically grade all our stamp projects as A's!!

Or um, sign a "cannibalism contract" with me! you know the one!

I like the idea of the scissors tattoo.

badass poster, indeed, sir. badass poster, indeed.

oooh...or you could say...let a person's vote count as a name in a hat and you could have a drawing for a handful of sweet, sweet Hackenslash T-shirts!

Hey, the raffle is a good idea. In fact, I have three pieces of art featuring the God of Scissors. I could offer one each to three randomly chosen voters.

What do you guys think? Is there interest in this?

Lighthouse Pilot said...

hella yeah!

You and Dean are the very model of good sportsmanship. You are good winners. People I'm happy to applaud in their victory, even if it be over me.
Your poster coupled with Dean's post-fight interview comic have filled my heart with a special kind of goodness. Let's call it a zesty chipolte goodness.

I think the scissors tatoo idea is promising.
The raffle idea is good as well, except that I'm already going to be rallying for the "by friendship slain" art to take up residence in my fortress of geekitude.

chrishaley said...

Oh, and I agree with April that we need a print of the poster.

Lighthouse Pilot said...

Chris seconds the need of a print of the poster and I third it. I third it I say!

I just tallied the votes and the mighty Hackenslash is up by 3! I have a strong feeling there'll be more votes for Hackenslash as stragglers from the AAH camp make their way in.

Pulpatooner said...

Okay, it's been pointed out to me by cooler heads that the whole raffle idea is, perhaps, not too sporting.

And the "...BY FRIENDSHIP SLAIN!" image is too low in resolution to make a decent print.

Do I bring nothing but bad news, today? Oh, no. Feast your eyes on this.

Lighthouse Pilot said...

Oh sweet!

chrishaley said...

I'm ordering one as we speak.
