My preferred winner of Semifinals Match Two: The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
Contest Entrants’ Choices:
This is kind of a Butler vs. VCU type matchup. Only one person correctly predicted that Next and Lemon Cake would make it to the Pre-Zombie Round Final Four. (Congrats, Susan. She predicts Next will advance.) So there can be no aggregation of pre-tournament predictions regarding this matchup. Anyway, this crowd has about as much wisdom, judging purely on results, as the coin in my pocket. Of course, that’s still more wisdom than I have…
I find myself in the surprising position of hoping that Lemon Cake wins this, mainly because I was less offended by it than by Next. Of course, to be as offended as I am by Next could suggest it accomplished something. But my position is that its lack of accomplishment is precisely what offends me. It tricked me into thinking it might have something interesting to say and then only pretends to have said something. Or I could just be misunderstanding the whole thing.
Go Lemon Cake! With or without chocolate frosting, whichever Zombies prefer to eat.
