    Thanks to everyone who voted! And thanks to the talented and gracious Ms. Lockwood who politely neglected to mention that she thrashed me soundly in the Molten Chocolate Nekkid Wrestling portion of this competition.

    I have nothing but the utmost respect, awe, and admiration for a woman with the moxie to aka her novel Ass Bandits of the Caribbean.

    Ass Bandits of the Caribbean! Ms. Lockwood, you rock.
