That's right. Check out my predictions below, or on the strip for March 17, 2002 and post your own predictions here. The person with the most number of right predictions wins a set of Warp 9 buttons and an original sketch. The second and third runners-up get buttons. If you leave out a category, it counts as a strike against a correct prediction of yours, so be sure to post a prediction for each one.

This thread will be locked just before the Academy Awards pre-show begins, so get them in before then.

well, my frenzy for the buttons was such that I actually counted, you know, to spare mofo and all, I should get something for that, the results are:

india ink: 13 -congrats mate, though fuck-
mofo - 12
kat - 10
violentmae - 10
myself - 10
182 - 6
Del09 - 6
Refused - 6

shit, I really want buttons, I mean, without that there's nothing left but ramen noodles and self-nipple rubbing.

So, does that mean Kat and I don't get buttons? We are second runners up, if you don't count Mofo and if you do we're third. Or is it because Mofo got second, there is no third runner up?!? Now I'm confused.

ooh, I'd like some buttons. And I don't think Mofo should count since he's already got buttons.

Incidentaly, did anyone catch the Cirque De Soleil? I looooved it. Better than Whoopi, even.

so, uh, now what? Do we like sit and wait until everyone's figured out and then get buttons, or what? Sure is taking a while...*hint hint*
As if that wasn't obvious.

Sorry, guys. I've been in the middle of a move, and things have settled down now. (Which means that I now have access to a live phone-line.) And you know what? Because I'm either such a nice guy or such a jerk, I'm gonna give everybody who entered a button. The top three folks, not counting myself (even though I whooped two of yours' asses) get three buttons and an original sketch.

Send your addresses, if you're brave enough, to thosebastards@warp9tohell.com, along with whatever ideas you have for your sketches (for those three lucky winners), and I'll be sending those goodies away shortly.

(Along with your long-awaited giant envelope of Warp 9 crap, Jen!)

PS: Good Oscaring, folks.

Mofo.
