Your Boss for 2008

All hail your Boss for 2008:

title or description

Like any final champion, Wonder Woman has her share of controversy, and to those of you who are dissapointed with the result, I say to them that, at least in part, so am I, but Wonder Woman won fair and square (and she would have won without salad_barbarian's last-minute recruiting) so whining about it now is a pretty moot point. And remember, if you're not happy with this year's results, there's always next year, with a whole-new competition and plenty of new seeds to rally behind.

I have no interest in providing statistics other than a featured commentary count, but if anyone else wants to trawl through the fights this year and post them, that's fine by me.

And now, the rankings according to featured commentary and honourable mentions (the second number is honourable mentions). Let it be known that there were quite a few contenders who did very well in the early stages of Who's Da Boss 2008, but who seem to have disappeared later in the competition and whose scores are thus rather low:

Much praise to bluestknight for putting all this together, and never missing a day. It's been a riot.

Verily, kodiac, verily.

Although the greedy part inside wishes you shared more my sense of humour than theirs. My commenting style didn't change much (though I went on less spiels) and I dropped from #1 with 11 to #whocares with 2. Ah well, the fun's in the making, not in the getting.

When does Season 09 start?
Aug. 23rd, 2008 03:57 pm (UTC)
And can we throw suggestions at you?

Over the coming weeks, I'll be starting an extended discussion on the future of Who's Da Boss.

Sorry I caused any controversy. I assumed that most of this community was so staunchly Pro-Patrick Stewart that she wouldn't stand a chance.

With that being said... HUZZAH FOR WONDER WOMAN!

i've been establishing my life in a new place and haven't had much time to use the el-jay as of late. i'll be back next season.

until then, all hail wonderwoman!

Huzzah! I increased my featured commentary whilst decreasing my voting regularity! (mostly due to being in a different country for 6 weeks).

And I whined a little, but being presented with the facts, I must bow down to Wonder Woman, our new Boss.

And I helped the Monty Python Foot win last year, so I guess I will accept the Internet's fate.

But we've had a pretty broad spectrum of Bosses. Walken, Buddha, a giant foot, Wonder Woman.... good to see there isn't one style of nerd/geek dominating the competition!

Well, I certainly hope this magical business continues. It's only too bad I'm too busy all the damned time.

And, as is my tradition, I give to you the Whosdaboss Ultimate Loser Award.

Wonder Woman Defeated Patrick Stewart...
... who survived the K-T Meteor...
... which obliterated the Lollipop Guild...
... who devoured Pie...
... which sent the Wild Things to bed without supper...
... after they scared off the Golden Girls...
... who had just beaten Guitar Hero on expert...
... which had outplayed World of Warcraft.

World of Warcraft is the Whosdaboss Ultimate Loser!

Oh man, if that had been mentioned I would have instantly changed my mind and voted for Wonder Woman.

Because WoW is in my top 2 most hated things ever list, tied with "who ever's in charge of giving people superpowers."
