Well, after the spectacular failure of the majority of people to understand that favourite song did not mean favourite Christmas song, I will open up the actual Culture Cup and make up a random order.

Round One is Best Christmas Film. Please send me (by PM, I'm so sorry you couldn't work that out) three choices, in order of preference, as we have 13 contestants in the Culture Cup Tent. Two days for entries, two days voting. I will announce the second round as I put up the voting for the first round - please be aware.

Home alone is the best Christmas film for me. Followed by the Muppets Christmas, and the original Scrooge.

Saying that can I please give Scrooged a honorable mention ?

You can give it an honorable mention in the PM that you're supposed to send to Dolphin rather than posting it here.

The whole point of the Culture Cup is that it's supposed to be a badly organised f*ck up from start to finish with unclear instructions and sarky comments from the organiser when people get it wrong.

Dolphin is doing a great job of maintaining the usual standards and Tino (god rest his soul) would be very proud.

Rule 1: The whole point of the Culture Cup is that it's supposed to be a badly organised f*ck up from start to finish with unclear instructions and sarky comments from the organiser when people get it wrong.

Rule 2: Answers will often make little sense, and people will invariably vote for themselves, apart from those who wont, who will complain loudly and often about people who vote for themselves

Rule 3: The winner is always 5hit

The key in relation to Rule 2 is to maintain an air of snooty superiority when complaining about people who vote for themselves.

Rule 4: - 25% of participants won't respond in time and the whole thing takes 7 months to compete.

Why would you do a Christmas Quiz and ask people for their favourite song, and be surprised that people pick Christmas songs?

Because an order needed to be set, I couldn't ask for a Christmas related topic to do it, and I thought you people could read.

Reading is not the issue. Not reading the entire post before answering/whining/shouting is standard Internet protocol.

I'll be damned if I enter a comp that is properly run and doesn't follow standard internet protocol.
