(What is this contest? What is this molecule? Find out here.)

I've narrowed it down to ten finalists. Of these, I will probably make t-shirts out of the top three favorites. The top vote getter will receive the first PoopReport skatole t-shirt ever to be produced! Your finalists:

From Prarie Doggin:
From Deja Poo:
From Prarie Doggin:
From Bunga Din:
From Wonderpance:

Also, when you're done voting and discussing your favorites, let me know what you think about the design. This isn't necessarily what the final version will look like, but it may be close. I like the vertical layout, as if the molecule is some sort of Chinese character.

PD, man you take the biscuit everytime! I have not a clue how to pronounce Dianalfloracrakide, nor have any idea how you came to construct it. Butt it looks impressive. Well done.

Is this contest going to be like the last one, with no winner?

Had to go with Di's first entry...I'm embarrassed and ashamed that I didn't think of it....it would be much funnier coming from me.

sweet! the first time i enter a contest and i got two entries! this is very exciting.

regarding the design, i think it looks pretty good. my only suggestion would be to add a little dimension to it. throw a drop shadow on there and maybe a little bevel or something. you know, just to make it pop!

side note: any time i type the word "pop" (or anything else that starts with "po"), my fingers instinctively type "poop" and i have to correct it.

I voted for "dianalfloracrackide", but I still like mine. I based it on this which was popular on shirts where I went to college: And God said

Will the shirt have the person's name on it? E.g., From Wonderpance -- Science Stinks. They are all much funnier with the names on them. "From Di Urheea It wasn't me." And why not have a line of shirts? Do all of them. People love choices.

Dave. Concerning the last contest that Everett has been going on about -- can we at least announce that even though a winner hasn't yet been named, that there is a loser -- CEP. He seems to be suffering so from the uncertainty, and I think we should show mercy and put him out of his misery.

i'd just like to point out that the skatole molecule is responsible for the fecal odor in poop, and does not represent poop itself.

Vote for you, wonderpance? You just admitted to us that your entry "Molecular model of a poop particle" is inaccurate, bogus, deceptive, bunk. And now you want our votes?

CEP, how right you are about the last contest. I had called the station house to see if the firefighters who had gotten the older gentleman out of the septic tank would agree to judge the limericks, and one of them was on board. But, then he didn't answer his emails or return phone calls. We waited for him to reply, but to no avail. I think we're just going to have to vote on them ourselves sometime after this.

Technically wonderpance is right, it is a poop molecule of the aromatic variety. It's the poop that you breath in, the stuff that when you inhale too deeply irritates your uvula and makes you gag.

well, Logjam, i'm obviously not talking about that one! i'm talking about the other one i submitted which is in second place. i'd withdraw my other submission if i could. i'd also take back my stupid vote! i was dumb and voted for the inaccurate one.

i can't believe i thought that was the one other people would vote for. i still think it's funny, though.

Ever since my college days I have described a really thick heavy foul smelling flatus that lingers for several minutes as having a high molecular weight. So I have to agree with Wonderpance. I'm so glad I found the people on this earth that like to talk about shits and giggles!

Prarie Doggin, just ordered a T-shirt with your "one bad ass molecule" logo on it. Can't wait to get it!

Here is the final design for the shirt:


Why did the colors change? Because our resident fecochemist, Mark of Stain, pointed out to me that atoms have a color scheme: light gray for carbon, white for hydrogen, and light blue for that all important nitrogen. Thanks, MoS: now these shirts are scientifically accurate!

You know, this design would make a great scratch and sniff postcard, too. Congrats to all the winners. I don't know which shirt to get. Maybe a few of them. The Things each want one.

ok, i'm not really a sore loser. i'm really excited to have my caption on a t-shirt! however, i really do think both of my submissions would work best together. except it should be changed to "molecular model of a poop stink molecule" for accuracy. but that's up to you, dave. you're the boss!

and congratulations to everyone else who won!

except you, prarie doggin. i declare shenanigans on you.

Declaring shenanigans on St. Patrick's Day is just plain poor form, Wedgie. Unless you're a leprechaun, I guess.

I thank everyone that voted for my entry. I'm surprised it won, I voted for Silent But Deadly (Di Uhreea's entry).

I received some nasty pm's regarding possible shenanigans with voting irregularities and just to "clear the air" I only voted twice, once as anonymous coward and once as Bunga Din...in lieu of the potential splashback this revelation may cause I leave it for Dave to decide on my punishment....I just hope it isn't 6 months in APOO CRAIB In ISHAT.

Congratulations, Bunga! I would also like to thank everyone who voted for mine. I tried to fuse the complexities of molecular science with the simplicity of street language and came up with it. Uh, actually I thought of it as several of those bad boys were explosively exiting my ass.

As far as shenanigans, I voted only once and it was for another one of mine. My two gay Irish friends Gerald Fitzpatrick and Patrick Fitzgerald will attest to it.
