Vote For The Children!

As friends of mine have looked over the votes cast so far in the DBET, they call up and express their best wishes. Usually they talk a while before getting to the crux of their call, which is always: "Film Geek, can your flavor--Peanut Butter Chocolate--win the tournament?" As they wring their hands in anticipation, and calculate the odds that seem, at least for today, to be against me, I answer:

"Yes, we can."

Is it possible, they ask, that sweet chocolate goodness mixed with the chunky, chewy delight of peanut butter can garner enough votes to win? Can the newfangled concoction of PB & C beat the old-standard tradition? Can we really win this election? Each time, I answer:

"Yes, we can."

Some suggest the time frame is too short for victory. With the deadline of 8pm Thursday looming, some have advised that PB & C should simply fold up the tent and abandon the race. It's too difficult, they say. There's too much to do and little time to do it. Can we continue to hope against hope that PB & C will overcome significant odds to be the victor? Again, I say:

"Yes, we can."

Yes, we can. If you will vote with me, that is. If you vote here, and vote often!

Or you can vote for Thrilla Vanilla- the flavor that saves souls from Arkham Asylum.

It's time to knock down the wall which separates religion from ice cream.

Or there's that option. But with that option, of course, there's no destined goodness. No pre-determined taste of wonder. I can't take any chances...I gots to vote me some PB&C! :)

But Vanilla Ice Cream is pure like the scream of the Black Canary. It requires no other additives, just as the Black Canary's song requires no lyrics.

Ultimately, the people must decide. And hopefully they will make the right decision; otherwise baterangs are going to fall from the sky in record numbers.

Ooooh, that's good, PBC, real good.

Hopefully the Vanilla Street Team will soon have an answer for that.

Elvis Drinkmo said...

Right on Team Thrilla.

I'll have my own reply too, PBC.

The Costume Lady said...

Ok. . .is it just me or has anyone else thought that the PBC mascot rather closely resembles "recycled" ice cream of any given flavor??? GO VANILLA!

The Film Geek said...

Jackie: I'm sure they will, and look forward to it! :)

Elvis: LOL

Costume Lady: It's just you. :)

I just cast my vote for PB&C and it looks like I may have put us over the top. as of 10:55 PM on Monday, April 7, 2008 PB&C is on top 51.7% to 48.3%

The Film Geek said...

Thanks, Money! I'm pretty sure the Four Horsemen were PB&C lovers. I'm not certain of that, but I can hope. :)
