Great Pumpkin Showdown II: Winner

After a week of voting, the winner of the Great Pumpkin Showdown II was pretty clear. Macromedia (Adobe) better watch out, because piracy seems to be all the rage with Flash developers these days.

Unlike last year, where the results were neck and neck, this year was a landslide victory. The pirate pumpkin won out with 147 votes. Frank came in a distant second with 91 votes, and the Puki pumpkin trailed with 78 votes.

Here’s a look at the pumpkins the day after hallowe’en. I was going to take a picture after voting ended, but the pumpkins dissolved into protoplasm by day 3 and had to be poured into the garbage can (ewww).

Unfortunately, Frank committed seppuku by leaping off his ledge when he was informed of how the voting was going… it was a horrible sight.

Congratulations to the winners, who won, uh… something… totally… awesome… ya! Thanks to everyone who voted – we try to have a lot of fun here, and you help make it happen.

  1. I’ll bet this turn out has something to do with the increased awareness this past year of the Ministry of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

  2. I still don’t understand how was possible that the fantastic Puki lost 🙂
