Martin S Pribble is very annoying

The guy keeps yammering on twitter that he’s catching up to me in this online poll. I’ve got 62% of the vote, he’s got 12%, and he isn’t even in second place. I’ve been idling along, not worrying about it, but apparently I need to now langorously stretch out my tentacles, enfold his paltry percentage in their toothy embrace, and crush and rend.

I urge you all to go vote and teach Martin S Pribble a lesson.

He’s Australian, so you know he deserves it. I’ve already warned him that there will be a hug-off at the GAC, in which he shall be totally crushed even further.

    Greta has only got 15% of the vote. Come on, people, let’s get behind the best atheist blog in the blogosphere.

    Well this should be interesting! LOL – I know I can’t win the popularity contest, but I’ll let you know I’ve been in training for the Hug-Off! I’ve been eating Marshmallows!

    As my tentacle overlord commands, voting with all of my various and sundry aliases.

    Sir! Vote cast, sir!

    I’ve heard that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. After watching poll after poll get crushed by the Pharyngula horde I’m in awe.

    By the way that’s not my real name on this reply. Just thought I’d let you know. Just in case.

    He’s Australian so he deserves it? PZ I’m English. Now, you two colonialists sort this out nice… don’t make me come up there…

    This Pribble fellow has gumption. I respect that. Pribble–you had me at marshmallow. My vote is yours.

  7. Aquaria says

    This must be some kind of guy bonding thing that I don’t get. What next? Giving each other noogies?

  8. FossilFishy says

    So conflicted. Do I surrender to my natural tendency to obey his Poopyness? Do I show some kind of half-assed loyalty to my adopted home? Or do I vote for one of my favorite bloggers and acknowledge International Woman’s Day (in NA) all in one go? Hmmmmm, hmmmmm, oh wait, this is easy. [votes for Greta. Get’s an attack of nerves and calls up Google maps. Is relieved to find that yup, it *is* at least 200km from the nearest body of water capable of sustaining cephalopods.]

    Aquaria #12

    What next? Giving each other noogies?

    Wedgies are traditional in certain circles.

  10. marella says

    Oh no, I voted for PZ before I realised that MP was Australian! Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Sorry Marty.

  11. pacomius says

    Damn it PZ, you had me until you used his Australian…ism…ality as a reason to do him in

    So conflicted. So, so conflicted

  12. says

    see that banner on the right there? –>> The blue one? Yeah, that one… see where that’s being held? There is a reason this is happening in Australia, because people like me live here :) What better reason to vote for me? Except if you are annoyed it’s not happening near you, in which case you should vote for PZ… Okay I’ll go now…

  13. pacomius says

    Oh no, I voted for PZ before I realised that MP was Australian! Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Sorry Marty.

    Marella’s mea culpa swung it for me – she sounds like a fellow recovering catholic (oh the guilt, always, the guilt) as well as Australian. Rest easy, marella, I nuetralised your vote.

  14. evader says

    I’m so ashamed to be Australian.

    So behind the times…

    Hope you didn’t expect anything more than a 55.6kbs internet connection here PZ.

    It’ll run Netscape 1.22 just fine though.

  15. says

    PZ, you made me vote for you, but you also made me find Pribble’s blog. So, you kinda shot yourself in the foot there. he laughs at Outreach Media like I do so I must give him credit and readings.

  16. madtom1999 says

    Sorry not voting – why not just use a facebook login to verify. Why does it have to know who all my freinds are?

  17. 'Tis Himself, OM says

    Actually you don’t need to register on facebook. You can give an email address. If you don’t have a throwaway email addee then you don’t deserve to vot.

  18. mostraum says

    I went there with the best of intentions, but got distracted by the feminine vices of Greta Christina. Abject apologies.

  19. janeymack says

    Damn. That was a hard choice. Almost voted for Greta (she has the kitties on her side!) but since it’s PZ’s birthday, I went ahead and voted for him.

    Happy Natal Day, oh Tentacley one!

  20. Loqi says

    What’s a Martin S Pribble? Is that a type of fish?

    *checks urban dictionary”

    Oh, that’s disgusting.

  21. Woo_Monster says

    Actually PZ I was born in the USA, and have dual citizenship… WHERE’S YOUR GOD NOW???

    I thought this guy was supposed to be an atheist? As it turns out, he is a sophisticated theologian.
