This is Food Court Lunch‘s first appearance in the Canadian Blog Awards. They made a gutsy (and foul mouthed) showing, and despite using kidnapping, extortion, murder, and bike destruction to sway voters, their strategy only earned 3rd place. Better luck next year dudes. They graciously(?) provided an acceptance speech for finishing in 3rd.

CBA Stats moment:

There were 389 votes in this category for Round 2.

Not a single Group blog in Round 2 finished in the same position as they held at the end of Round 1 voting. 282 votes were cast in Round 1.

We’re sorry there’s no presentation video. It blew up in the lab. Fortunately everyone survived, but the video could not be saved. We’ll observe WHMIS procedures more carefully before next year.
