This week’s winner was easy because she was thrice-nominated. THRICE! Congratulations Glow-Orb, who pontificates on the reason why we all just love the color pink so damn much:

Day 1: There are things in this world that are for you. There are things in this world that are not for you. You will know the things that are for you because they have your mark. Your mark is pink. Your clothes are pink; your room is pink; your toys are pink.

Day 374: There are things in this world that are for you. There are things in this world that are not for you. When you choose the correct things you will be praised, hugged, and rewarded with positive noises from the people around you. When you choose the incorrect things you will be ignored, laughed at or punished with negative noises from the people around you.

Day 1260: You love pink. It has always been that way. It must be inherent to your sex.

Two runners-up after the jump!

Oh hey happy Friday everybody!
