...the Official "Gingerology Post regarding Monte's Favorite Classic Movie Actress Tournament on the Mythical Monkey blog"

...OK, well, first off, we have the longest post title in Gingerology history...

Second - thanks again for all who partook in the voting for Ginger... awesome to see our girl propelled to victory! 
 
When I was informed of this great contest by our fellow Gingerologist AND Caroleologist, VP81955, I noticed that Ginger was actually behind by 20 or so points to her VERY worthy opponent, Miss Irene Dunne. Well, I thought, I can vote on each of the computers I have access to (that's five), as well as on any smartphones lying around (that's two more)... done, done, done, done, done, done, and....DONE.

Of course, I had to also inform all of Y'ALL about this, as I figured it should garner some additional Ginger votes... and GingerFan11 also posted on her impeccable site regarding the contest, so... we hoped that fellow Gingerologists would get the message and vote... looks to me like y'all did just that.

Now, about those 'accusations'...
...well, in this day and age, folks can purt near figure out how to circumvent any system and weigh it to their advantage... but, something tells me this wasn't the case here...

Why?

Well...here's why, I believe...

Saturday generally is the most active blog day, it appears from past statistics... it's when most bloggers catch up on the week's proceedings. So, it's not too far-fetched that a lot of fellow Gingerologists dropped by, and made the jump over to MM to add their vote. I mentioned a few times that traffic on G-ology the past few days has been almost double the usual, so if only a fraction of those hits proceeded to vote, there's your majority.
I know, I know, one can never PROVE that 'ballot box stuffing' didn't take place...but, even if someone DID figure out how to do that, it's obvious they are card-carrying Gingerologists, right? But, if there WAS any shenanigans, let's put the kibosh on that...we should be able to win 'straight up' with Ginger as our candidate!

Moving forward, now that we are all totally aware of this contest, we can redouble our efforts and push Ginger all the way to the crown!

Stay in touch with the proceedings... and VOTE GINGER!!!!
