James Mirtle has a poll up on his site today. The question is, "When Will Burke Have the Leafs in the Playoffs?"
Here's a screencap from the site, taken just before 2 p.m. today:
What the hell? If you look down at the bottom, twenty-six percent - a little more than one in four, for you math scholars out there - of the respondents have voted "Never."
I can only hope that James has set this poll up in such a way that those who click on the "never" button are, in effect, just self-identifying as "clueless asshats who deserve an electric shock to the testicles", and that the appropriate hardware and software has been put in place to achieve that very result using the power of teh Intarwebs and today's modern technology*.
Seriously, is it even possible that more than one in four people actually believes that the Leafs won't even make the playoffs for another six consecutive years? Isn't it a bit more likely that, somewhere out there, there are 19 numbskull Habs/Sens fans laughing to themselves about what an excellent wit they have proven themselves to be, chortling over the grand success of their web-enabled riposte?
*note that today's modern technology is far superior to yesterday's modern technology, which was very outdated - we just didn't know it at the time.
Do you think that participation in Internet polls ought to expose you to the risk of an electric shock to the testicles?
