While the Presidential war rages on, I'm fighting the good fight on a video game forum of all places. On Allakazham in the Asylum, the liberal to conservative ratio is a good 5 to 1, but the conservatives are such nutbags they make up for it. We have some good arguments, some bad ones, and invariably my karma score hits "Excellent" after I've made a zinger.
But now, I'm in a race on that very forum -- for Player of the Month for my video game. This is more or less like the Democratic Primaries where it came down to Clinton and Obama -- I'm the only girl in the race, and it's the funny popular guy that is my main competition.
(By the by, if you want to vote for me, you can do so by registering on the forum and doing it here.)
More or less, the "race" is just a popularity contest. Unlike the Democratic primary, however, this is a no-holds-barred knock-down drag-em-out slugfest. I'm behind in votes, so I offer to sing songs for people. I surge ahead briefly. Then I break out the big guns and post a shot of my cleavage. (Sexism? What's that?) My competitor responds by posting a pic of his man cleavage, chest hair and all. Words cannot describe the horrors contained in this image.
I'm losing, but we're having a good old time with it, and even at second place I'll automatically be nominated next month. Instead of "gaffe of the week" it's "who can do the most outrageous thing?"
My current plan of attack: Invade the Unicorn server forums and hit him at his base. My cleavage is now sported on an icon for all to see, and perhaps I can lure away a few unsuspecting guys over to my camp.
