They are all winners in my book

When I proposed this group project, I had a feeling you, dear readers, would be up to the challenge. I was not wrong.

I know I said I’d rank your entries, but frankly, they’re all so damned hilarious I can’t possibly pick a winner.

The perpetually awesome BTS scored big points with “Mama Told Me Not to Come” and Broadway classic “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair.”

Dennis came through big time with “Man in a Box” and “Norwegian Wood” — oh Dennis, how I miss you and your facility with the official dictionary of The Associated Press.

Katydid’s “I Want It That Way” and mxs’s “Back Door Santa” are also strong additions to the list.

And Erin, sweet Erin. When you take your seat on the Supreme Court, I hope you will look back on your contributions to this endeavor with pride. “It’s Growing,” “Done Too Soon” — these are indeed the products of a great legal mind.
