Pharyngula

And the November winner is…

It is my honor to induct into the Grand Order of the Molly, with all rights, privileges, powers, and obligations thereof, the distinguished commenter known as Sastra. Everyone stand up, applaud frantically, and remember to bow when you meet her in the street henceforth.

    Sastra’s a SHE? So much for my afterparty…

    There are privileges and powers?

    Now they tell me!

    (Congratulations, Sastra!)

    Congrats. I never got around to voting, Sastra, but I find that my track record is best if I vote after the poll closes. I hereby cast my vote for Sastra.

    I think you need your own damn blog.

    I wasn’t around to vote on Saturday and Sunday, and see that the polls closed early today. No fair!

    Nonetheless, I applaud Sastra’s nomination and win (I would have voted for her anyway).

    Congratulations, Sastra!

    As a Molly winner myself, I offer this piece of advice to save you some potential embarassment: Gas stations will not accept “Order of the Molly” as sufficient reason to give you three cents off per litre. Threatening the manager with a mouthful of Mentos and a bottle of Coke doesn’t help either.

    HEY!
    Oh, my. I’m stunned. And honored. Thanks to all, thanks to PZ.

    And yes, I’m female, as PZ knows. Last month in Madison I had lunch with the Myers (and a bunch of others) while we were attending the Freedom From Religion Foundation convention, and had a photo taken with PZ — and I am IN MY ‘WELCOME SQUID OVERLORDS’ T-SHIRT! That is high-level fan geekdom right there (and it confused a lot of people at the convention, who tried to read it as some cryptic anti-Religious Right message).

    Now the pressure is on. How long do I have before people start to notice that the quantity and quality of my posts are actually pretty disappointing?

    I will have to do my best on following Dustin’s campaign promise for godlessness, debauchery and fornication.

    Hey, yay Sastra!

    I didn’t even know there was a vote (I’ve been busy…), but I’m proud to say that Sastra comments over at my place too. She rocks.

    Gratz and grins @ Sastra for a well-deserved recognition-dump! =D

    And yes, I’m female…

    Hold on–we all voted for a woman? Oh, Behe’s gonna be so mad at us….
    Congratulations, Sastra!

    My dog is having puppies in the next few days. In your honour I shall name the firstborn female “Sastra”.

    I had thought about naming them all after Molly recipients but David Marjanovic just won’t fit on a dog tag and a puppy named Cuttlefish may raise an eyebrow at the vets.

    Congratulations Sastra. That was long overdue.

    That’s great news – Sastra is cool.

    I now eagerly await the godlessness, debauchery, and fornication.

    Congratulations Sastra. I would have voted for you, but Dustin had a better campaign . I am glad the promised godlessness, debauchery, and fornication will not go unattended. I look forward to many more of the high quality comments we all know and love, and you know — fornication.

    Sastra’s a SHE?

    Ends in -a. That raises the probability significantly above 50 % as long as we don’t stray too far from Standard Average European.

    and had a photo taken with PZ — and I am IN MY ‘WELCOME SQUID OVERLORDS’ T-SHIRT!

    Boo! Corruption! Scandal!!!1!

    There are privileges and powers?

    The privilege to add a comma, a space, and two letters to one’s name; the power to say “DOC-TOR Evil! I didn’t study at Evil Medical School to be called ‘Mister’ by you!”; and the obligation to keep all campaign promises that any candidate made in the campaign…

    TAKE OFF EVERY ‘ZIG’!
    YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DOING.
    MOVE ‘ZIG’.
    FOR GREAT JUSTICE.

    Once again my nefarious plan to follow blindly behind the mob pays off. Congrats Sastra, may the adulation and mindless worship go to your head, leading to self-destructive behavior and donating hard earned money at Mythusmage Opines.

    Morally inappropriate behavior with cephalapods in entirely optional, but expected.

    Congrats to Sastra!

    Bride of Shrek, just call the dog “Cuddlefish”!
