I forgot to vote myself! Remember you only have until 10:00 UTC tonight to vote.

Marshmallow's Last Stand
A classic. Not the only reason why I picked it, it was funny too.

Strong Bad Sings
Kick the Can is funny, but Strong Bad Sings is just hilarious, if not only for the scrolling list of songs.

Fluffy Puff Commercial
I loved Homestar messing up his lines in First Time Here?, and this was even better.

Meet Marshie
I always love to show this one to people new to Homestar Runner. "Capital 'M', and then 'arshie'!"

1936 vs. 20X6
I didn't really like this one, but I hated The System is Down. Nothing really happened. To some, that's what made it funny. But not me.

Lookin at a Thing in a Bag
I love this one for Homestar's stupidity, and the slushie flavors. "I'll take a red, a green, and two blues." Or something.

Ballad of the Sneak
I loved The Cheat Theme Song. I love 1936. It adds up.

Cheat Commandos
The Cheatar was funny, especially for the whole "can of peas" thing. But I loved Cheat Commandos, as do I love the series. Was that correct grammar? I don't really care. "WE'LL BLOW UP THE OCEAN!"

Senor Mortgage
I picked Senor Mortgage just because of that phone number. Laughed out loud the first time I saw it! I expected it to stop at the first 7 numbers. I tried calling it once too. Out of service.

Experimental Film
Experimental Film was a great song, but adding Homestar Runner into the mix was the smartest thing They Might Be Giants ever did. The commentary was great too, I wish they had more of those on the site.

In no way are you obligated or being asked to provide reasons to your own votes.

Just because of The Cheat and Strong Mad's totally unbelievable Strong Bad costumes.

Strong Bad Sings
I like Kick the Can, but it just can't compare to the wonder of Strong Bad Sings. Those songs are simply classic.

Fluffy Puff Commercial
Theme Song Video never really did anything for me, so I pick the Fluffity Puffity Marshmallows.

The Interview
This was one of the first toons I saw, and it's full of laughs. Especially Homestar prancing around like an idiot.

1936 vs. 20X6
I love the contrast between Stinkoman's personality and The Homestar Runner's. Plus their "battle".

Lookin at a Thing in a Bag
The funniest part of this was the fact that it would have been easier for Strong Bad and The Cheat to just get the drinks themselves.

Ballad of the Sneak
I had this freakin' song stuck in my head for a week. I love the line "Who put a bengal tiger in the Kaiser's latrine?"

Cheat Commandos
I never liked The Cheatar much, but even if I did, I'd still pick Cheat Commandos. Seriously, I LOVE this toon.

Cheat Commandos...O's
This was sooo hard to choose... I love both Senor Cardgage AND The Commandos. Overall, this seems like a better toon though.

Experimental Film
I only picked this for the commentary. The song was OK though.

Also, one day is a bit too short to run the bracket for. My advice: give users a few more days to vote.

OK. It'll take a while, but I'll run each bracket for... well, for now, as an expirement, I'll keep the current time. Tomorrow/tonight, whenever I update it, I'll extend it. Whichever works better, I'll stick with.

Can I edit my post and change my votes on a couple of them? Or would that screw everything up?

I would rather if you didn't do that, but if there is a big reason why you must, go ahead. HOWEVER! If you edit it after 10:00 UTC, your vote will not be counted.

Li'l Brudder Show ruined Li'l Brudder.

Commandos in the Classroom
Cheat Commandos toons beat just about anything.

Sick Day
Just for the line "They're pointy now!"

500 The Cheats
Not many people seem to like this one, but I found it awesome.

No Hands on Deck!
The ending was a little odd, but overall this was a good toon.

Drive-Thru
I love KOT's VOQPCS, but Drive-Thru is responsible for the best line ever. "Sever your leg, please. It's the Greatest Day."

An Important Rap Song
*See Commandos in the Classroom

Ever and More!
One Two, One Two was pretty dull.

Limozeen vs. Sloshy
Sloshy's rendition of Because It's Midnight is one of the greatest things in existence.

Blubb-O's Commercial
So.. many... quotable lines in this one.
