Weekly Poll Update

Yeah yeah yeah, I haven’t been around much, so sue me.

So here’s the deal. I, who seldom get sick for non-allergy related reasons, got sick for non-allergy related reasons. I’m better now, but not 100 percent, but I owed it to you, the crap-reading public, to get off my arse and update this site before you cancel your pricey subscriptions and take your business elsewhere.

As for the remainder of the countless sea of worthless employees at Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters, Post Hurricane Fearmongering Super3DDoplerWeatherplex Division, it appears they didn’t do SQUAT in my absence, and are all fired forthwith. There, I feel better already, even aside from the very-recent lack of unpleasant projectiles ricocheting around in the general area of my bathroom. But hey, TMI.

Now, where was I? Oh yeah, the weekly poll wrap up. Sorry about that.

Last week’s question was “Houston’s under a dusk-to-dawn curfew all week, mostly without electricity. What will most likely come of this?”

Coming in first with 35% was “the entire area is about to get back in touch with their inner mosquito.”

In the second place slot with 30% was “local hospitals will be jam packed 9 months from now due to a baby boom.”

In third place, directly opposing second place was “family courts will be jam packed 2 months from now due to a rash of divorces.” On the other hand, if the third place finisher isn’t directly opposed to the second place finisher, one might presume that a lot of couples in the greater Houston area finally had nothing better to do and got around to having sex, with each other, and immediately found it despicable. But the kid’s still coming.

In a 3-way tie for fourth place (or is that a 4-way tie for third place?) were “somebody owning a Prius will figure out a way to use it to power their house, and will charge $500 a night for an air conditioned room;” and “after days without electricity it will take a while for Houstonians to catch up with gossip on perezhilton.com;” and “’There’s nothing like a refreshing swim on loop 610’ will be newly-added to the local lexicon.

And yes, I know the percentages add up to more than 100. That is because voters on this poll could choose more than one option. So if you wanted to and didn’t avail yourself, feel free to apply for all those vacant positions at Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters. You are fully qualified. Oops, except that you didn’t even notice the percentages exceeded 100 until I pointed it out? Go to the back of the line, slacker. You’ll get your money right after AIG.

As always, this week’s poll is on top of the right hand sidebar. Vote on it there, and comment on it here.
