Heh, I know how you feel, redehlert. A big thanks to Ive for his vote, it's more than I had expected in this competition. I'd also like to thank proph3t and Eric Lofgren (both of whom had very good and wonderfully eerie entries) for their comments.
My vote went to Negrotuerto this round. The concept may be slightly recycled, but I think the terrific style and humor make up for that.
