The Final Results of the Advent Calendar Competition!

First of all, we want to thank everyone who voted during our goofy Playmobil advent calendar contest. It was a spur-of-the-moment idea, born out of disappointment when we found that these calendars were supposed to be assembled beforehand (I would suggest Playmobil take a hint from LEGO, which has calendars all set to go straight out of the box), and we're very glad that readers went along with this throughout December.

The race ended up surprisingly close, with the two calendars tied until the final week. The Unicorn Paradise put up a good fight - here it is in all its final glory, except for the backdrop (click for the full-size photo).

However, the Knights Duel eked out a win by two votes!

With everything opened by Dec. 25th, we merged the two calendars together, and, not unexpectedly, total chaos broke out.

Animals donned capes and tried to eat each other for lunch.

Kids frolicked in cages while the adults drank themselves silly. (Bunny suggests that you can pretend this is a recreation of Salo: 120 Days of Sodom. Alternatively, you could be reminded of the recent news story of the Cleveland couple who kept their foster kids in cages.)

The parrot went on to a lucrative career in espionage.

A peacock tried to usurp the throne, and was temporarily successful.

An aspiring paladin's skill level in animal husbandry (the most useless of D&D 3.5 skills) skyrocketed, albeit with tragic results.

Male chauvinism broke out...

...and was quickly suppressed.

A young boy discovered his inner diva.

"I can't see a thing in this helmet!"

Thanks again to all, and happy 2008 from the Spooky Librarians!
