    I'm conflicted between 242, for the really cool layout and Cerebus reference, and 244, for Belkar's harassment of Girl!Roy.

    Arrrrrrrrrrgggggggg!!!

    Okay, make it 244 for Belkar trumping Roy's Trouser Titan reference with his own Rod of Lordly Might.

    242 and 244 are great, but I think I'm going to give it to 241 just because I love moments like that. Just when it looks like the heroes finally have it all under control, something small happens all of a sudden that screws everything up. Love it.

    So yeah, I vote 241.

    244.

    So wrong. Best followed up by Belkar's later statement "I took Craft: (Disturbing mental image) as my feat last level."

    244.

    For "I get to tell 'im!", and "Ooo, me, let me!".

    Not to mention "Was that a yes?" and all of the other classic Belkarisms in there.

    Not the best 5 and the winner will likely lose in the next round, but I think I will go with 244.

    Me too. I vote for 241 because of the comedic end touch.

    243. Easily.

    But I know 244 is going to win because everyone goes nuts for the Belkar moments. *sigh*

    243.

    As I prefer rules jokes to 'cheesy lines' I find that 243 is the funniest of these five.

    I have been observing this phenomenon for a few weeks.

    Whenever a new poll is setup, it's an instant success. A lot of posts and stuff, but then comes the new comic, and nobody remember my little Awards again.

    This is not because the Awards are a big waste of time (which I think it's not, of course), but because The Giant manages to craft strips so amazingly that everyone forgets every other thing in the whole site and go talk about it.

    On a little off-topic note, I liked Miko died. Am I morbid?
