Sitting Tennant

It’s that time of year again. Yes, time to declare the winner of Sitting Tennant 2011! It’s been a hard-fought contest, both for captions and pictures, but we have two worthy winners. After the jump, all will be revealed, including the final Sitting Tennant of 2011, and we can talk about next year’s Sitting Tennant at the same time.

Sister Chastity's Sitting Tennant

In the picture competition, it’s Hebbie by a nose!

  1. Hebbie: 370
  2. Sister Chastity: 360
  3. Erin C: 150
  4. Rullsenberg: 55
  5. Janice: 30
  6. esgaril: 10
  7. theriverlady, Toby: 5

A great big well done to her, the crowned victor of 2011, but also a huge well done to Sister Chastity who came ever so close to winning this year, as well a thank you to everyone who submitted photos. What would you like as your prize, Hebbie? I can offer you a great big round of applause from everyone at the very least.

And in captions, last week it was a tie between Rullsenberg, SK, Joe B and Toby, so they all get 10 points. That gives us Toby in Bronze, SK in Silver and Ms Rullsenberg the gold medal winner of Sitting Tennant (captions) 2011.

  1. Rullsenberg: 285
  2. SK: 220
  3. Toby: 200
  4. Marie: 195
  5. Electric Dragon: 135
  6. Lisa G, Jane Henry: 55
  7. theriverlady: 35
  8. Virpi: 30
  9. Janice, Joe B: 25
  10. Hebbie: 20
  11. whoficwriter, Jeri: 10
  12. kallan: 5

Again, a huge round of applause to all involved and a great big thank you for providing everyone with so much entertainment over the year. And what would you like as the prize Ms Rullsenberg? Beyond the crown I just posted to you, obviously.

As for next year, who’s up for it? New idea – there’ll be the usual yearly competition, but how about monthly ones for both captions and photos as well, just so that people can leap in and out at any point?
