First, there is Ed., the anonymous Editor of the review who runs the show, who did Blawg Review #200, who has also done ten …count ’em ten …of those reviews. Without Ed., there would be no Blawg Review. And if someone else were doing the organizing, you just know it wouldn’t be nearly as good. That’s Ed. to the right.
Of course, Samuels also won in 2005, based on Dante’s Divine Comedy:Inferno. And he won in 2006 based on The Divine Comedy: Purgatorio. And he won in 2007 based on The Divine Comedy: Paradiso. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m starting to see a pattern.
Ron Coleman’s #191 at Liklihood of Confusion took second place with a Chanukah theme. And there was a tie for third between Rush Nigut’s Blawg Review #147 based on the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, and David Gulbransen’s Blawg Review #182, a special bar exam edition. My Thanksgiving themed review with Arlo Guthrie, on the other hand, was apparently a real turkey.
How can Samuels be stopped in 2009? We’re gonna need The Bogeyman to get involved just to give someone else a chance.
