With the year starting to enter the home stretch, just a reminder that this month (hopefully this week) we'll be kicking off the preliminary contests for Headline of the Year. The Totalfarkers get to vote on their favorite headlines, so if you wanna get in on that and have the opportunity to help vote for your favorites, now's the time to get a TF subscription, or get sponsored, or shake down somebody for their lunch money. The threads will be going to TFD for their votes. You might not wanna miss that if you think better headlines didn't make it through the contest.

As noted above, the preliminary Headline of the Year contests start up this month. Only Totalfarkers can vote in the preliminaries, so if you hate seeing better headlines overlooked in the Headline of the Year contest and you don't have TF, now is the time to beg, borrow, or steal five bucks.
