Having weeded out the pretenders, the second round of Chit Chat March Madness proved much more exciting:

(1) Bacon defeats (9) Child Abuse Statue feat. Hivegod 34-27
It's always tough being an 8/9 seed, 'cause you're up against the best the very next round.

(5) Submarine defeats (4) Ducks 33-28
Submarine.

(3) Yahoo Boots defeats (6) Thumb Whoring 39-22
Like Yahoo Messenger, the thumb whores found themselves f***ed.

(2) Endless Variations of a Thread's Theme defeat (10) Squishies 32-29
There were more lead changes than I'm Not There, but endless threads triumph over endless consolation.

-------------------

And now, the Final Four begins! Voting will close and the championship round will commence sometime tomorrow.


Poll
1. I totally want a BLT now. Submarine.
(1) Bacon
(5) Submarine
2. Who has more heart, an endless legion of semi-redundant posts, or one scrappy spam message of legend?
(2) Endless Variations of a Thread's Theme
(3) Yahoo Boots

Summary of Final 4:

Bacon vs. Submarine: After Erik's post I am totally jonesing for a submarine sandwich. And it's going to have hot ham on it, not bacon.

Endless Variations of a Thread's Theme vs. Yahoo Boots: Endless variations on a thread's theme grow old after a while. Unless the thread's theme was Yahoo Boots. Then it's just awesome.

FOUL!!!

Asking people to vote for 'Child Abuse' (when it is in fact mere baby-kicking) is like asking people to vote for 'De-Haired Swine-Belly Meat' instead of bacon.

If bacon wins it will be a sad day for Chit Chat. Bacon was an internet meme before Chit Chat ran with it and it hardly captures the spirit of Chit Chat.

Wrong, sir. It started at Chit Chat. The internet caught up later.

Do not believe the propaganda from the pro-bacon camp as you see posted above.

Ah! the false choices are difficult.

What fun would Yahoo Boots be without a million variations on its thread?

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that in the finals, Yahoo Boots will score an upset victory over Bacon. YB has been winning its heats by more convincing scores than our beloved de-haired swine belly meat. And, just to follow up on Pronoblem's point, it really is a Chit Chat original. So that's my prediction.

I don't know if that's much of an upset. There are 200 of them, afterall, and did you see what they did to Yahoo Messenger?

More likely the seeding was wrong.
