Despite Getting Blanked’s copyediting policy being best described as “blasé”, the comma missing from that headline is by design. The headline implores you to vote for the weirdos trying out for the MLB Fancave rather than accusing the reader of being weird.

It takes a certain type to fire up the handicam and send off an audition tape to New York. It takes guts, certainly. Either a healthy dose or stunning lack of self-awareness, whichever works. My hat goes off to all the contestants who qualified for the final 50.

So get out and vote. My personal recommendation: vote for the creepiest of the creeps. Busy the possibly dangerous and definitely deviant with content creation under 24 hour a day surveillance. Keep them off the streets, away from our children and the infirmed. It’s the right thing to do.

  1. I think what the title is missing is “, Weirdos”.

  2. How could you possibly not back the isotopes singer? Ill quit reading this blog forever if you don’t start using the platform as the hipster canadian MLB newssource to support the only punk rock singer in the voting.

    • MY BALLOT IS PRIVATE! I dunno, I’ll probably back that guy. But gimmick bands don’t do it for me, man.

      • Hardly a gimmick, those boys work the road circuit hard, not to mention the video for the ballad of rey ordonez is fucking epic. And they were featured on the greatest podcast of all time, Up and In. Just vote for evan wansbrough everyone.

  3. And April’s not a weirdo, she’s enthusiastic! And she writes about prospects!
