If you've got five seconds to spare, go the following url:
and vote for:
Hank the Angry, Drunken Dwarf
It's case sensitive, so make sure you type it in EXACTLY as it is above.
This is a huge joke. We want to try to get Hank way up there on the
People Magazine 50 most beautiful people of the year list. As of 2:00
AM, he's already up to number 5!
If there's anything worth spamming, this is it. We have to push him
the Leo DiCaprio list. Drunken dwarves beat drowned drones any day in
