In this morning’s email from Lent Madness global headquarters, there was a broken link to the voting page. While voter turnout has been decent, the Supreme Executive Committee is concerned that some fans might not find their way over to the polling place. So here is the correct link: http://www.lentmadness.org/2014/03/david-of-wales-vs-f-d-maurice/ Please share it widely on social media, bulletin boards, windshield flyers, bumper stickers, and billboards.
As an homage to Facebook’s popular Throwback Thursday, we thought we would provide some retro images to encourage you to vote. If you’re of a certain age, the name “Maurice” conjures images of a television star from days of yore: Morris the Cat. Sure, it’s spelled differently, but they sound the same.
And of course, David of Wales is easy. We’ve provided a handy antique picture of whales. Hey, it was either going to be this or Welch’s grape juice in reference to the Welsh. We made the right choice, I think you’ll agree.
If you are worried about remembering to vote, you can sign up for daily emails. Just put your email address in the little box over there on the right side of our website and hit the subscribe button. In the event there’s a problem with either our email or your overly aggressive spam filter, make sure you have a backup plan. Here are several ways to remember to vote each day:
- Buy a purple alarm clock and set it for 8:00 a.m. Eastern time.
- Like us on Facebook and see the daily posts, as well as regular updates.
- Follow us on Twitter for up-to-the-second news.
- Tell your priest or minister to call you each morning. She or he has nothing better to do than activate the parish calling tree to get out the Lent Madness vote. Tell them we said so.
- If your town has tornado or civil defense sirens, call the mayor and ask that they sound every day of Lent to call people to vote.
Will F. D. Maurice get a cheshire grin as David goes extinct like a whale? Or will David gobble up F. D. Maurice only to vomit him out on the shores of defeat? Your vote will decide the outcome. Vote now (but only once per person!).
