Very tight voting up at the top there! Congrats to EE and to the minions who placed themselves on his evil altar.

I still can't get over that Spitting Image monologue with Mr. Evil's possible thoughts upon waking bloody and without his gun. Good Lord, I just about choked the first time I read it.

I voted Spitting Image as the best EE monologue (although I think I stupidly called it a dialogue-it was late at night). I agree, it was brilliant!

Most of these got some vote from me (best salutation, best title for inspiring ridiculous fake plots, etc.). The Wayfarer got notables on 2 counts (but I've lost track of what they were now).

Still 20 Palaces got my vote for #1 because ruthless vigilante sorcerers have given us so much joy throughout the whole process, and EE's comments were very droll or something.

This has been fun.

Oh yeah--The Wayfarer, best salutation (dear cruel lord of print) and best research (that diarrhea, excessive religiosity cure).

LOL again.

Cool!!! My facelifted letter came 2=

I didn't vote for myself as it didn't seem right, but now I wish I had LOL. I still laugh every time I read EE's comments

Thanks EE for all your help on my query. I had a good laugh re-reading all the favourites. Who knew something educational could also be fun?
