Voting Thread: 2023 Today's Toons Favorites (Preliminary Round)
« on: January 02, 2024, 12:20:51 am »
Here it is...the 15th annual Today's Toons favorites. I'd like to publicly thank musicman for helping me with the monthly voting. Via these ballots, we tallied the selections (15/month) which received the most votes. Those monthly selections make up this preliminary round. In 2024, there'll be only 2 of us here who vote on a regular basis; if you'd like to help, send me a private message & I'll tell you what would be involved.

Each entry is numbered (1-180). Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to send me (via comment in this thread or private message) the numbers,
in any order, of your 30 (or fewer) favorites. If you are caught sending more than 30, I won't disavow your existence, but will ask you to remove any excess. This offer will self-destruct at 11 AM ET, Sunday, Jan. 7, 2024. Good luck!

If certain images don't download (even after a refresh/reload), send me their numbers (which will show up) & I'll try to help. My plan is to post the 30 (plus ties) finalists in a new thread on 1/7/24 or 1/8/24. The results of this final vote will be posted on 1/14/24 or 1/15/24. The decision of the judge (Today's Toons editor-in-chief) is final! Questions? Bring it on! And now, on with the show!!

Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Hi Pookie,  I am unable to see 68, 147, 149, 153, or 155.  Looks like they're all from Flopping Aces. Maybe it's a problem on my end?

@Polly Ticks

No, not on your end. Prior to reading what you wrote, noticed the same thing. Will look into trying to fix it shortly. :-(
