And the winner is...
Oh, I'm going to regret this.
Knarf, for "Inauguration Day." It's a silly, light, fluffy Twinkie of a story that I don't think will age well, but there you have it.
Vidad, I liked yours, but it was too obvious too early where it was going, and besides, you won last week. Henry, I liked yours as well and there are some clever ideas there, but it just seemed a little too drawn out and slow-paced to make the gag work. Your writing for Curse of the Were-Weasel is tighter, better.
Snowdog, I was really drawn to yours and wanted to pick it, but it was just a little too dark and realistic for my tastes this week and Henry and Rycamor concurred. So the award goes to — I can't say it.
Look, just for reference, "Knarf," or "KN@RF," or any of his many other names, holds the all-time record for being banned from the Ranting Room for lewd comments, poor taste, and insulting behavior. And now he's gone and won a Friday Challenge.
Boy, is he going to be insufferable.
