Should we have a run-off vote? Suggestions please. It's been so long since we had a tie that I don't remember what we did about it.

Given the lack of response about the tie, I've decided to get autocratic about it. Don't try to stop me, or I will immobilize you with my death ray. What? The death ray is on back-order? Oh, well then I'll just glare very intimidatingly.

Our two leading captions were submitted by DianeL and Wendy. I believe Wendy has won before so I am declaring DianeL the winner this time.

Congratulations, DianeL! Your prize is that you get to submit the cover for the next round.

I missed your earlier post about the tie or I would have sounded in. My bad. I like your answer though ;)

I for one would be glad to defer to a runoff vote. If I did win, I'd have to find a cover - that could take me a minute ... :P

Well...I suppose we could have a runoff... It might have to wait a few days.
