It seems like everywhere you look, someone’s being voted off some television show.
Whether it’s Last Comic Standing or Big Brother All Stars or Survivor — there’s always someone getting kicked to the curb under the guise of intriguing, engaging entertainment. And it got me to thinking that isn’t WFME all about entertainment? Don’t you come here to take a break from the daily stress of work and life and family and have a few laughs? Isn’t that why we’re all here?
That’s why today…we will vote out one of our own.
Yesterday you may or may not have read my post on Lucky Charms and cereal in general. Look, that’s okay if you didn’t. It doesn’t matter. But what does matter is that those who took the time out to comment unknowingly involved themselves in one of the most groundbreaking blog moments that will ever occur here at WFME.
That’s right — we are going to make those commenters the center of the first ever blog eviction ceremony to take place on a blog over the course of the entire history of the Internet. They will all be going up on the block, and you (the collective readership of WFME) will decide who will go!
Get those votes ready!
Here’s how it will work. You go and read the comments section of yesterday’s post and see who commented. Each and every commenter (other than ME) will be automatically considered a contestant in today’s competition. Just who will go home? Who will lobby in the comments section of today’s post to stay? Will WFME readers vote for their favorite commenter to be voted out (because they’re competitive) or will they vote for their biggest enemy commenter nemesis to go?
And just exactly what are the stakes?
The commenter who ends up getting the most votes from readers will be kicked out of WFME, and not allowed to comment on any WFME post until September.
Their IP address and e-mail address will be flagged through this blog so no matter what they try, they will be unable to comment. They will be treated with the disrespect that most reality show contestants get when they too, are voted off a show. They will be evicted from that which is WFME.
Any reader of this blog can vote. Even those who are up on the block. But you will only have one (1) vote and one vote only. Vote for the person you want to be kicked off WFME by submitting their name via the contact form. Voting will be active until Midnight PST. At Midnight, WFME will tally the results and contact the individual who has been voted off for a one-on-one interview that will accompany the results-post on the blog the following day.
Oh and there’s one more twist. There’s a blog immunity up for grabs. When someone votes via the contact form — if they’re the secret nth person to vote they will get the immunity. If they’re up on the block, they can use it on themselves. If they’re not, they can give it to someone to save them. The minute you’re this person, you’ll get an e-mail asking you what you want to do. Voila!
So…just who will be voted off WFME?
Will alliances form between co-commenters?
Who will be banished from commenting for the rest of the month?
Like most booted reality-show contestants, will this evicted WFME-r actually have something good come out of the whole depressing situation?
Will commenters thrust into this drama desperately use the comments section of this post to direct people away from them and towards others instead?
Who will be backdoored?
Who will be angry?
Who will emerge as the puppetmaster of it all?
It will be the most groundbreaking blog eviction ceremony to ever take place.
And you, my friends, will be right in the middle of it all.
Update: The person to vote in the pre-determined nth spot was Nicole — who, as a result, has snagged the one IMMUNITY card. That means, you cannot vote for Nicole. She is safe! A stunning turn of events especially after Meme went after Nicole and the conflict raged on. Congrats Nicole!
