Vote Early and Often

It's time again for the Flyer's Best of Memphis readers' poll!

And I hear that there are even prizes involved.

Now, every year, after the Besties come out, I hear complaints about the results. Like, why is Target the best gift store? Or, how come McDonalds won best burger?

Well, let me just tell you, it's not because I think McDonalds has the best burger or even because they advertise with us — it's because the majority of the ballots voted for them. (This example has never actually happened, as far as I know, and McDonalds doesn't advertise with us, but you get the picture.)

So if you want to see someone (read: yourself) win something, it might be worth doing some campaigning. You know, buttons, cupcakes with your face on them, television commercials that end with you saying, "I approve this message."

And if you want to vote for me for something, well, that's fine, too.

(I was just kidding about voting early and often. You should really only vote once — we've been doing this a long time and there are people here that can smell fraudulent triple, quadruple and googaluple votes from a mile away. They won't tell me how, tho.)

Cupcakes would be an awesome idea. I recommend you do that and bring them to the office. Make 'em vegan, and then I'll definitely vote you...maybe even twice. I can probably get my dead friends to vote too.

How about YOU bring cupcakes to the office and then I'll vote for you?

I liked those ones you made with the tequila? whiskey? goldschlaeger? in them.
