For a second there, I thought the game might've ended tomorrow. Negative votes rained down like locusts in some far-off biblical plague. But then, out came the healing spells... Rouxgaroux was revived from its temporary status in the single digits and now, the Pete/Dunny Flake is hardly at risk at all.

In other, more down-trodden and somber news, we lost a great blend since yesterday's post. Anomalous has been savored by those of us hip and trendy enough to favor limited runs packed full of flavor and skillful blending. The sudden antipathy was shocking, if not shameful, so I've buried Anomalous on an anonymous plot, hidden from sight so you anti-taste sicko's can't come piss on it whenever you fancy.

I was thinking I should've nominated Cult Anonymous so as to cause epic confusion with Anomalous also on the ballot, but I see the task has already been done for me...
