Now when you pick a paw-paw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big paw-paw
Have I given you a clue ?

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

I stopped voting a round ago because the counts were being rounded up too quickly. Good luck, someone.

martha wrote:Yeah Velv, that's what I thought as well, but Count Machuki and sloopjohnc both expressed that it was too soon for them to vote in the quarterfinals round even though I had already extended that match beyond 48 hours due to the boards being wonky and one of the next five lists being late.

So since at least three people have said they wanted even MORE time, even while myself and two or three others have said 48 is sufficient, I'll go with the folks that need time over those that don't. I think if someone needs more time, there's no compelling reason to rush the cup...so I'm extending it -- I just need the next five lists in a timely manner this time (and after the semis).

Can I just that say that asking for ties to be extended by two more fucking days just so you can find the time to vote and then not fucking vote is a cunts trick.

I shall not forget.

Erm, does anyone know why the title of the 2017 final thread is "BCB Cup 2016 - The Final"?

Because both lists were just copied and pasted from previous years?

Just saw this.... that's a terrible choice by the Who. Sounds like an extra track on a blur cd single. ;)
