Listen to me and you shall hear, news hath not been this thousand year:
Since Herod, Caesar, and many more, you never heard the like before.
Holy-dayes are despis’d, new fashions are devis’d.
Old Christmas is kicked out of Tow
Yet let’s be content, and the times lament, you see the world turn’d upside down.
Yes the world has been turned upside down, Chris Vernon didn’t win… Fire and brimstone coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats, living together! Mass hysteria! Quoting English ballads and Ghostbusters at the same time!
The Gary Parrish Show with Geoff Calkins, First Place: 48.31%
The Chris Vernon Show, Second Place: 26.35%
MSL with Kevin Cerrito and Marcus Hunter, Third Place: 7.09%
