And the winner is...

I've been in an extremely unbloggy mood for the past few days, and it may continue for a little while longer. I've been keeping off the net and trying to get some things organized around the house. I've also got a bit of the post-Christmas blahs. But it's January 1st, and the Most Annoying Canadian competition is over; I must interrupt my break to make this announcement:

The winner is:

Antonia Zerbisias!


Unfortunately, this win is somewhat tainted. I'm pretty sure it's the result of someone stuffing the ballot box somehow. I've been monitoring the counts, and votes for her came in large batches all at once. My referer page didn't indicate any bulletin boards where some campaigning was going on, so I can only assume all those votes came from one person. Who? I dunno. Believing a columnist for the Toronto Star (which no one is forced to read) to be the most annoying person in this country is pretty odd. Maybe it's her husband.

I'll have to give Jimmy Carter a call next time to make sure this thing doesn't happen again.

Anyway, I did say anything goes in this competition, so the result still stands. But I don't think I will be able to convince anyone that Antonia Zerbisias is really the Most Annoying Canadian, so I'm a little disappointed. And I'm not sending her a trophy.

Better luck next year, Sheila. Keep those self-congratulating columns in the Post coming and I'm sure you've got a great chance at taking the big prize.
