OH my. I’m just so . . . so . . . titillated would be the word, I suppose. I previously mentioned the hot contest between PZ Myers of Pharyngula and Phil Plait of Bad Astronomy — well, it just got hotter.

PZ has officially agreed that if, nay when, he loses, he will pose in the 2008 Skepdude Calendar as punishment for insulting Phil’s photo for this year. Were the impossible to happen and Phil loses, he’ll have to admit defeat at TAM5. Look, people. I know you love me. I really, really, really want PZ’s squiddy goodness in the calendar. So, you must vote, vote, vote! The time runs out tonight at midnight! Tell your friends! VOTE!

Why are you still reading when you should be VOTING???

  1. Oh boy…it looks like PZ might have pulled through. This does not bode well.

    Thank goodness I'm not important enough to have my silly, off-the-cuff statement about next year's calendar taken seriously…right? :-P
