Okay, here's how we'll go from here.

Vote for your top four in this round, and the four biggest vote getters will move on to the final four.

At that point, we'll go survivor mode. You'll pick three of the four and the bottom one will be eliminated. Then you'll pick two of three and the bottom one will be eliminated. And at that, we'll end up with the Gold Medal round.

So right now, vote for four.

While I love the smell of a smoker, I'd have to say fresh baked bread and chocolate chip cookies are up there.

Unless those chocolate chip cookies have bacon in them, I don't see how they can be running even with the bacon option. Something's very wrong here and it seems like the wrongness started when we gave women the vote.

Rain Man, in his Denver-living, BBQ-hating ways, intentionally put as many iterations of a BBQ smell into the competition so as to prevent it from making the finals. He knew what he was doing all along.

This is worse than the 2002 Winter Olympics figure skating judging scandal. In fact, it is the moral equivalent of that the Denver Broncos did in the '97 playoff game vs the Chiefs.

Ya know, if we are weeding them out one at a time starting next round, then there's no reason to have a final four. This isn't basketball, maybe we go with a final 5 and then start weeding them out.

There's a natural break in the data between 4th and 5th and a near tie between 5th and 6th. I don't think your modification can be justified on the basis of anything other than a grilled meat bias.

Edit: I missed the Hickory and meat entry which is a significantly closer 5th place than I initially believed.

I chose my rhetoric wisely. He likely doesn't realize the extent of his [perhaps subconscious] actions here. So I want him to see just how fraudulent his poll has become. I could have made comparisons to other cheaters, but I chose the one that would sting the most. I mean, I feel betrayed and let down and I think he should know.

Yes, you - the person setting up the entire Olympics, the person who has provided zero transparency into the grouping process for heats -were openly advocating for certain smells over others, a potential abuse of power and authority regarding this competition.

Unfortunately, you and the other beefers have no grounds for a challenge. If you had spoken up for guava in Round 1 and honeysuckle in Round 2 and the 4th of July in Round 3, your arguments might be considered to have merit. But there was silence as those smells fell. It is only when your partisan choice falls that complaints about "the system" arise. At best, it's situational ethics, and at worst, it's outright fraud and an attempt to manipulate the democratic system. And nobody likes a commie.

Face it. Variations of barbecue are the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th-best smells in the world if the voting trends continue. There's no shame in 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th.

One word, Mr. Reaper, one word.



Honeysuckle.



Where were you for honeysuckle? I'll tell you where. You were at the grill. And why were you at the grill? Because you, sir, are in the pocket of Big Beef. And we don't worry about lobbyists here at the Smellympics, so you might as well pack your carpetbags and head to Richmond to promote beef tongue.

The grill? I am posting in defense of barbecue and you talk about the grill? What comedy of errors is this?

I'll have you know that, while I was not in support of honeysuckle stemming from an incident in first grade where I sucked on a few too many of them and grew ill for an afternoon, I have been voting for such smells as post-rain air, bread, and brownies.

Again, I call for transparency. A public poll would have shown false your claim that I am in essence a lobbyist. Your rhetoric is like the Obama administration's - appeal to a populist anti-lobbyisim while allowing for the lack of transparency in the process to mask what is really going on behind the scenes with special interests.

Actually, barbecue is running at 127 votes as I type this. It is just split across four different categories. Even if you remove the meat + sauce option, the three completely redundant meat-during-the-BBQ-process options are sitting at 92 votes.

So it is untrue to say that cookie or cinnamon roll people outnumber them. Hell, cookie and cinnamon roll people combined barely outnumber them.

It's always been obvious that we have a lot of meat smokers on this board. Because of a split up vote they won't be able to "taste the fruit of victory" in the same way they usually do for their efforts. I'm surprised that some guys didn't lobby hard for the smell of jizz in a piece of tissue after that thread about the janitor sniffing trash.
