  1. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    Yes, master.

  2. Proceed.

  3. kibblenibble says:

    Will do!

  4. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    Done, done, done, like a baby bun.

  5. Done! Good luck CO!!

  7. berthaservant says:

    Or, should I say, “Megservant.”

    (Meg, I suggest posting this again at some point w/ one of the hypnotic kittie photos, you know, just to give CO that extra push).

  8. OMG. I just realized this whole time we could’ve been saying “Vote vote vote like a baby goat.” Why didn’t I think of that before!? Crap.

  9. Your wish is my command, oh mega Meg. I see we are in the lead.

  10. We will be in the lead until the FailBlog giant wakes from it’s nap and crushes us like a Flabby McGrapersons!

  11. berthaservant says:

    No! We will weeeeen!

    (Great stoat pic, Meg).

  12. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    Falblog is far in the lead right now, but its lead has shrunk since this post went up. Come on, kids, let’s pull off another come-from-behind victory!

  13. Stoats > Goats. It’s a simple truth. 😉

  14. (Of course, there are other simple truths as well, but it seems… ungracious to point them out. You know, considering.)

  15. Felicityanne says:

    In the lead, Failblog 4th! (8 a.m. UK time)

  16. victoreia says:

    [tapping fingers……waiting for activation code…….tapping fingers………] Silly “have to register to vote” rule!

  17. victoreia says:

    [dratted spam filters!]

    Finally! Done! And still leading (at 9:48pm Hawaii time)!

  18. merlinsmuse says:

    CO just has to win!!! Second as of 1:04 a.m. Pacific time, after failblog… Get out there and vote peeps! Tell your friends, too!

  19. gravyboatk says:

    I registered 2 hours ago and they STILL haven’t sent a confirmation e-mail. I smell a sabotage,people!

  20. gooeyctr says:

    “OMG. I just realized this whole time we could’ve been saying “Vote vote vote like a baby goat.” Why didn’t I think of that before!? Crap.”

    But, as your photo shows, a baby stoat can face front, hypnotize us with its stare, and push us into voting. A baby goat, however cute, can only eye us beadily from one side. Your first choice was clearly the best!

  21. If by weird they mean “day brightening, wonderful, hilarious, adorable, fun, delightful, bizarre, addictive, and seriously cool” then I agree with the weird category. If that’s not what they mean, then I don’t know what they mean.

  22. The Shazinator says:

    I voted, stoated, goated…wait…no…I didn’t goat. Anyway, I think the weird category fits!

    How do I put an avatar up like a bunch of people here have??!?

  23. Stoat! Stoat! Stoat!

    Reminds me of when I was younger, and there was an overpopulation of bunnies and they used these cages to capture them, so they could relocate about 30% of them.

    The tinniest baby stoat got him/herself into one of those bunny traps.

    It even showed it’s sharp little stoat teeth… *aaaw*

  24. alwayscataddict says:

    I voted! It said we’re in the lead!

  25. Birdcage says:

    Vole-ted. Voles are cute too, ya know. Look it up.

  26. wannadance says:

    i did it!! CO is ahead (0825 EDT)

    in keeping with weirdly, every single vote i cast ended up leading the pack. this speaks more to clever titles i think, since i have never even heard of most of them…

  27. I’m waiting for my activation code and am feeling like I want to cry- taking a long time, am determined-will report post voting, anxiety raising over here…

  28. Von Zeppelin says:

    Apparently CO is still leading at 7:38 AM CDT April 15. Turning to our analysis desk here at CNN Election Central. . .

  29. Stoat stoat stoat, cast a leetle vote…

  30. i like it

  31. Took forever to sign up to vote …then once I got “activated” took forever to vote!!!! I got tired of waiting for it to get to the location for me to vote for CO but will try later!!!
    I wondered if anyone else had trouble and I see some did.

    How did you guys get those cute personal icons? Cool!

    By the way liked today’s cuteness the kitty with the watery eyes and snotty nose could have been cuter!!! 🙂

  32. Hey… ya all know you have the clocks wrong here? It is almost 10:00 am ( OMG! ) and I haven’t done anything but be online!!! My posting says it is 6:00 am- I wish! 🙂

  33. I keep getting “We’re sorry but something went wrong.” Servers must be overloaded, but if they’re going to ask you to register seems like they should plan for the load they’re gonna’ get! Pretty frustrating. Will need to try later….

  34. It is 9:00am man I need some coffee! Go CO go! This is exciting…

  35. brinnann says:

    To those that are asking about setting up icons, create a WordPress account and it’ll let you upload an icon. I think the icon option itself may tell you to go to Gravatar.

  36. Whee, we’re in the lead! Those stoats and oat-eating goats really know their business.

  37. For the win! for the win! C’mon CO: keep on in the lead!!
    Let FailBlog do what it does best: FAIL!! :mrgreen:

  38. I voted! but that website is soooooooooooooooo slow! it took me like 10 min just to find the right page because of how long each page took to load.

  39. marthava says:

    I just registered and had no problems (12:45p ET.) Their website’s a little slow, but I did get my activation code via email right away and could then register. I’m trying to vote now, but the site IS a little slow… Prolly cause all the CO peeps just tromped over there en masse.

  40. Kristabelle says:

    Voted like a stoat and a goat sharing a coat in a boat in a moat.

  41. charliewabba says:

    OK, I am tuh-RY-ing to get in and vote, and the rarfing-farfing webby awards site is all kerfuffled and I can’t get in, or if I get in, I can’t get to the WEIRD category, and I’ve tried 4 times now.
    Cheese and Rice!!!
    I love you, Meg, so I will keep trying but I think I spent less time waiting to vote in the last Presidential election.

  42. charliewabba says:

    man, that was exhausting. I need a nap.

  43. berthaservant says:

    My confirmation came in my “spam” box (I have yahoo) so be sure to check there!

    Keep goating it up, peeps!

  44. It only took me about 5 minutes to vote – from each of my computers. Yes – CO is winning!

  45. fish eye no miko says:

    Woo-hoo! I am a votin’ and stoatin’ fool!

  46. I stoated! Whee!

    Can you only vote once, or can you vote once a day?

  47. I weel vote. Where can I geet a wallpaper of thees photo??

  48. 13bodies says:

    Whew! The website isn’t as clogged now. Voting done!

    How can the cute lose? A couple of big-eyed puppies, some bunny toes and a kitteh paw to distract the webby people, a stoat rummaging thru the ballot box….

  49. I voted for CO because the insanely cute little stoat told me to.

  50. 1) I voted
    2) CO is in the lead
    3) There are 27 comments on the webby site for CO and none for the others in the same category. Hmmm…

  51. Oh and,
    4) At the top of the webby page is a drop down box that says nominees. If you use that, you can scroll down to CO and it will take you directly to the right place.

  52. done done and done better than bush

  53. I voted! Took me a few tries. Kept messing up my account info. x(

  54. BTW, still in the lead! And no, their clocks aren’t messed up. They are going by the time zone in which the author of the page resides(gosh, I sounded SMART. rofl). heh heh. Cute must PREVAIL.

  55. I stoatally voted.
    Never change the stoat chant! It is perfect. Goats aren’t nearly as democratic.

  56. Sorry, but I will be not be voting until you finally post pics of that floofalicious First Dog!

    (It’s my new obsession)

  57. LaserLiza16 says:

    “Beady-eyed voting stoat via BirdingWorld” has got to be the most… ummmm… INTeresting sentence I have ever heard. BUT WHO CARES!

  58. furbabies says:

    I have voted for teh cute.

  59. bookmonstercats says:

    I have voted, and yes, my password confirmation came into my junk box.

    [Same thing happened to me. – Ed.]

    Meg, I want to continue to vote like a baby stoat. Goats are great, but stoats rock.

  60. Stoatbunneh says:

    I tried to vote but my compooter stuffed on it. I like the stoat, well, the “that’s cute” sort of like.

  61. 5critter says:

    I voted I think we are still in the lead….

  62. nom nom nom anatied why the stutter

  63. harlemgrrl says:
