It was just a matter of time before David Baron and his My Zombies blog overtook James and it was Baron's whimsical Photoshop of Neal as C3PO that pushed him over the edge. You know the thing that baffled me the most about the entire Star Wars saga? In Episode II, when 3PO and R2D2 are at the Genosian Battle Droid factory, and they are hovering above some chasm, and R2 pushed 3PO over the edge... WHY? What POSSIBLE reason could R2 have had for that? Of all the lamebrained plot holes in the entire 6 movies, that is the thing that bothers me the most. Go figure. Anyway, I'm planning a trip to New York for 4th of July, and am trying to get Baron to come along, too. Won't that be fun?

As previously established, James Nadiger's I Blame the Internets blog kicks ass, and continues to kick ass. However, James never participates in our photoshop challenges, and that counts a tick against him. James, don't tell me you don't have Photoshop? This is the 21st Century. That's like a caveman without fire. Anyway, good work, just not quite good enough.

Don't let anything I've said fool you. This game belongs to Eric DeSantis and his Litany of Schist blog. How could it not? Eric is the purest embodiment of charm. He is a delight to behold, and every word out of his mouth is pure honey. I firmly believe Eric has been riding this competition out, letting James and David have their brief moments in the sun. I've already admitted this competition is fixed, right? And I'm telling you now, baring some terrible tragedy, Eric DeSantis is gonna reign supreme as the Laymamerican Idol.
Eric's Previous Odds: 10-1

Who say two wrongs don't make a right? Yesterday we struck comedy gold with the pairing of Hannibal Tabu and Neal Pozner, owners, respectively, of The Wind and Soapdish. It was such a successful pairing we've decided to keep the two together, as the Tabu's Brothers, proclaiming them the next great black/white comedy buddy duo, this generation's Nolte/Murphy, with Hannibal playing the world-weary, gruff and grizzled veteran tough-guy to Neal's foul-mouth, street-saavy, wise-cracking urban hustler--with an eye for the ladies! Best of all, they both love Sally Field, even though together they simmer with homoerotic tension! Looks for an appearence by the Tabu's Brothers at your local Kareoke bar, with Hannibal belting out the slo-jams, while Neal plucks a toe-tapping tune on his banjo, Deliverance-stylee.
Hannibal's Previous Odds: 10-1
Neal's Previous Odds: 12-1
The "Tabu's Brothers" New Odds: 4-1
WTF?!?!? I do believe Mary Brickthrower wanted to be eLAYMANated, which is the only possible explaination for her truly horrendus blogging of the past week. She committed two cardinal, unforgivable sins. First, she liked Star Wars Episode III, and said not to listen to the "Haterzzz" (a comment clearly directly at me.) If that was not bad enough, she TALKED ABOUT SPORTS, AND POSTED A PHOTO OF SOME FUCKING "ATHELETE." As previously stated, this is grounds for immediate dismissal, as all sports bore me to tears, but baseball is the WORST of them all (well, basketball sucks pretty bad, too.) Anyway, Mary E, aka Mary Brickthrower aka Mary the Wretched aka Sadie Hex and your blog, How The Wretched Live blog... meet my Size 8 steel-toed boot... You've been eLAYMANated!!!!
It's not like John Oak Dalton did not warn us. He said he would not be blogging for a while, and then ceased to. However, to use a (blegh!) sports analogy, one does not stop playing the game when you are on the verge of making the playoffs. Sadly, we must bid a fond farewell to JOD. However, it should be mentions, that in recent posts from his blog, John used headers from various Alice Donut song titles, and that did not go unnoticed. I wonder, is John actually a fan, or was he just shamelessly trying to survive the competition. It doesn't matter now, as John Oak Dalton has been eLAYMANated!!! At least JOD goes out with a bang for using Alice Donut songs, while Mary B goes out with a humiliating whimper.
