Oh Colonel Poo, if only you had voted for another, better, Yummy Fur song maybe one of them would have placed

not sure which song is supposed to be better, but if we all voted the same Yummy Fur song they would have come in at #94

not sure which song is supposed to be better

I have many opinions about this! I made a playlist - http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1fmqf9vwPImj7O4D7FRmaUz98CsqCTXF - basically the other six songs.

but if we all voted the same Yummy Fur song they would have come in at #94

My ideal was more like all of them placing, but Policeman was the one I didn't vote for.

Anyway, sorry, I'll shut up now.

Ah, I should probably post my ballot here at some point. Even though it did end up being a bit rushed, and there were things I completely forgot to vote for, and some positioning that would be completely different if I were to do it again now...
