“Interrobang” Showdown: Nyjer or Mike?

Citizens:

We have a first in the annals of “Nickname Seeks Player”: a tie. Indeed, Messrs. Nyjer Morgan and Mike Stanton both garnered the exact same number of votes, and that means an urgent, hastily assembled and palpably corrupt run-off is in order. Vote below, but remember: Present your papers to the uniformed constabulary or be walloped by his oxskin glove and placed into a holding pen alongside other foul-smelling members of the newly disenfranchised …

The ward heeler thanks you for voting as instructed. Now leave, lest your fruit cart be overturned daily until you see things our way.

UPDATE: Two commenters have a love of chaos that matches my own. Take it way, citizens:

I say that, before voting, EVERYONE should click on ‘view results’ and then vote for whichever guy is trailing at the moment.

    Are you insinuating that I didn’t do that?

  4. Dayn, do you have a contingency plan for if (and when) this vote ends in a tie?

    And does it involve bloodshed?

    When does voting close?

    I want my vote to be the deciding vote and plan on voting the very instant before votes are no longer accepted. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    I think that if/when this ends in a tie, we need to actually get messrs Stanton and Morgan to compete in a series of contests of physical, mental, and emotional fortitude to determine the ultimate victor.

    As a compromise, I propose a coin flip.

    If heads, Morgan is Interrobang !? and Stanton is Interrobang ?!.

    If tails, Stanton is Interrobang !? and Morgan is Interrobang ?!.

    Additionally, a certified public accountant shall witness said coin flip and certify the result – an uncertified public accountant simply cannot be trusted with a matter of such consequence.

    I’m pleased to report that I closed the voting as soon as I noticed a tie. I think now we’ll vote on how to break the tie.

      I propose a 3 legged sack race held every other week until a winner is declared.

      I think that Adrian Beltre (the #3 in the vote) needs to be involved in the tie-breaker.

      I propose that Nyjer Morgan and Mike Stanton need to play LF with Beltre manning 3B. Whoever he collides with first is the winner.
