I love Terbrugghen. What are those people doing in the second one? What a bunch of goofs! Anyway, I vote Thiebaud.

I like the first one. The expressions on the guys arguing over the poker game are very real. Now, had "Dogs Playing Poker" been in the running, it would be no contest.

I like actual dessert better than Terbruggen, but I like Terbruggen better than Theibaud's desserts.

Terbruggen, easy. He's not my favorite Dutchman, but I like him, and I honestly have no idea what people see in Thiebaud. It looks like junk store stuff to me.

I can see the appeal in Thiebaud, I guess, but they're all pretty empty calories. I vote for Terbrugghen!

...and Terbrugghen pulls away at the end there to triumph, six votes to four. Thiebaud will try his best against another Dutch master, probably later this week!
