After culling through the 168 entries, we have selected several that we really enjoyed, that were particularly truthful or funny, or which you, the readers, decided that you liked the best (comments are closed now on that one.)

The winner gets our grand prize, a Beat the Heat Gump Pack (but, I think I may send the runner-up something nice as well.) Polls close at noon Central on Thursday. So get to voting.

And, as always, thanks for playing along. This is easily one of the most fun things I do during the year.
