Mefites' Choice 2012 winners, week three
December 24, 2012 10:00 PM   Subscribe

Week three of the Mefites' Choice Awards is done!

The week's top post was Zarq's "You can't get un-famous. You can get infamous, but you can't get un-famous." Zarq will be the lucky recipient of an aural assault in four parts by cortex

Ocherdraco takes second place with The Board Games Women Make. She wins a gift certificate from SpacemanStix.

Kwine's "closest to 15 fantastic flags" category is taken with authority by East Manitoba Regional Junior Kabaddi Champion '94's Regular expressions against IMDb. (LOL butts!)

Davey Darling's "wood- or metal-related" category goes to Why Are People Hoarding Coins? by telstar. (Yes, this is a bit of a stretch. Apparently our rate of wood and metalworking posts is somewhat less than one per week.)

Wordshore's "Mod's Choice: Funniest post" category goes to Unicorn Pug by davidjmcgee because it is late and we are loopy and just look at that little face!

Ocherdraco's "Awesome Women" category goes to Unseen Worlds, by obscurator.

Congratulations to all, thanks to the generous prize-donators, and take a look at the wiki if you want to contribute to the final week. And get your posts all polished up for the final round!

Yay!! Congrats to all the winners!!



I've been thinking... for the finals week, given everything, can't ALL win? Can't we pull a TIME and say YOU SIR are the best contributor to Metafilter and YOU SIR are the Best of the Internets? because you are, all of you...

I had missed that Unicorn Pug. So great!

I showed it to my husband full screen (so no title) and with no warning. His reaction was pretty great.

Congratulations. Loved the top post by zarq. Still wading through the videos. Morgan Freeman one was a favorite so far.

Huzzah! For those of us who have offered prizes should we get in touch with the prize winners directly to determine their contact info?

Yup, feel free to MeMail your people directly. Keep in mind that not all of these people may even be aware that there is a contest running.

Happy Christmas to those who celebrate and thanks to folks for making such great posts. The last slightly-more-than-a-week voting is OPEN and we'll announce the winners in the new year.

I am sad that I didn't think to offer a glorious prize for the best post about butts now.

We have traditionally been less laudatory regarding butt posts, mind you.

Thanks y'all, it's a Buttsmas miracle!

There's always the option to offer a prize for the most glorious butt-related post (as determined by the mods, perhaps?) for the last week, elizardbits.

My post, complete with woodworking video, didn't count for the wood and metal contest?

(I'm mostly kidding -- it really was all about the cats.)

I am somewhat annoyed I posted during the last day of eligibility for the week.

Whoa! Cool! Thank you! :)
posted by zarq at 6:32 PM on December 25, 2012


Thank you for this honor. This is really for all posters of butts
