Alison says "Squid guy"

I will give the nod to the first guy because those flowers remind me of the killer vagina flowers in "The Wall."

Hey, thanks for doing this blog all these years. I enjoy it.

Yep, definitely Haeckel's erotic and improbable Life Forms of Planet Earth over that blathering square Van Doesburg.

What lamanyana said. This could be the first time I've voted against squares.

There's a case against squid guy in this match-up, but I can't really convince myself of it. SQUID GUY FOR THE WIN. and you're welcome, Doc Noisewater.

Dang, it's a rare clean sweep in the critical community! Squid Guy romps over Van Doesburg 15-0, possibly the most devastating wins in the whole tournament to date!

Thanks for voting, squid fans.
