And in recognition, I announce a new award for the themed list that gets the highest score. If your list has a theme, please declare it when posting your list. And no, “old and sick people” is not going to count as a theme.

Someone more creative than I can suggest a name for this new award.

When I publish standings, players with an asterisk at the end of their name have a themed list.

“Theme Dirge”
(y’know - like in theme song? fine, it was the best I could come up with on 2 hours sleep) :smiley:

How about:

Death Entertains Me in More Ways than One Award?

Or:

The Boot Hill Theme Park Ride Award.

My first themed list was “I’m dreaming of a Bush Deathpool.”

What about “I’m dreaming of a themed deathpool?”

ETA: In case you didn’t noice, my list is Presidents and First Ladies, with one brother for #13

Yep - I awarded you an asterisk.

Being on my list guarantees they will make it through the year. I haven’t played in a couple of years because I kept getting nada!

Anyway, I have a theme, I call it “Scared Stiff

Actually had him in an earlier draft of my list. Have no clue who Elison is.

Then again, I had a LOT of names to pick from given my theme, but it only goes so far, so I wanted to spray and pray on my list.

Then again, again, I was kinda constrained to my names, and to my timing. I HAD to do this list this year [2011], I felt.
