The BAT Challenge: Playing Favorites Results!

Which of the nominees in Caption Contest 182 (Victoria Roberts's totem pole cats)was my favorite? Myra and Deborah picked
"Yes, Officer, they say he was about six feet four, with pointy ears and abnormally short arms."
Alexia Kauffman (Arlington, VA)
but Debbie went with
"I wasn't laid off—I just decided to pursue other interests."
Christy Yoest (New York, NY)
while nobody, but nobody, picked
"Hello, YouTube? I've got something you might be interested in."
Judy Goldberg (Brooklyn, NY)
And you know what? I didn't pick that one either! What tickled my fancy (and that of voters at The New Yorker) was Alexia Kauffman's submission. Which means that Myra and Deborah advance by one point each!

The current standings:
14 Deborah (includes WWI? credit and Attendance Award and bonus point)
12 Ellen (includes one WWI? credit)
12 Myra (includes 2 Attendance Awards, one 3/3/09 photo credit, and an unredeemed Bronze Medal credit)
10 Debbie (Gold Medal and Attendance Award plus unredeemed Silver Medal and Silver Medal and Bronze Medal and WWI? credits, plus February 2008 and November 2008 WWI? credits)
10 Scott (Two Gold Medals plus two unredeemed WWI? credits)
9 Gary (Gold Medal and Silver Medal plus three unredeemed WWI? and one unredeemed Silver Medal and one unredeemed Gold Medal credits)
7 David (Bronze Medal plus Attendance Award)
2 Luke N. Atmaguchi
2 Daniela
2 Dolph (Bronze Medal)
1 bellj
1 Myron
1 Trapezia
Debbie and Deborah and Ellen and Gary and Myra and Scott can send in their own photos—or propose their own BAT challenges!
