Sterling work from the Reg, as usual :-)

Congrats!

Thank You, Everyone

I would just like to thank everyone who didn't vote for me for not voting for me. I am very busy at the moment and the additional responsibilities would have been onerous.

Paris, because she didn't vote for me (I know this for a fact because no one voted for me).

And yeh. I'd vote for amfM any day of the week!

What about

the BOFH? Did no one here write in a vote for him? I must confess that I forgot about him, but think about all the politicians (bosses) that could be made to disappear.

Unfortunately...

Mentioning no names,but a certain Martian readed voted for all five candidates at once.

That just shows how far Martians are ahead of us, I guess.
