Coolest Pets in PoPville Finalist for “Other” Category

by Prince Of Petworth August 17, 2009 at 3:00 pm 54 Comments

As suspected chosing finalists was not an easy task. If I had this much trouble for the other category I dread selecting the cats and dog finalists… Anyway, you will vote a winner for each category and then the winners of each category will compete against each other for an overall winner. The poll for “Other” category will be open until Friday night. You can tell your friends/colleagues to vote for your favorite but please only vote once, we’re on the honor system here. Cat finalists will be announced Wed.

    What a disgraceful omission of the true coolest pet in DC. It seems like prejudice has won the day, preventing the pet that would be the clear and obvious winner by any objective measure from even competing. Lets recognize that this is no more than a vote for second best. Viva Todd.

  • Liberty

    Fight intolerance and include Todd!

  • Trixie


  • Michael

    Bear bigots!

  • Piper

    Recount for Todd!

  • Tommy

    Todd is the greatest bear ever! No one denies this!

  • Agnus. I love the chickeeen!

  • Nick

    Dan, you should probably post the images of the pets in the same order as the list in the poll to avoid confusion.

  • bored at work

    Is it only me or is it odd that POP posted this ‘Other’ pet poll followed by the bbq post? Coincidence? or a disturbed sense of humor at work?

  • Smellie

    Todd? Where did you go?

  • ck

    Flash !! Flash !! Flash!! Flash!! Super cool and super cool parents too! Flash!!

  • Simon

    I’m so proud of you, son! Just making it this far is a huge accomplishment.

  • snake fan

    Where’s Thornton the boa??? I think any pet that can swallow all the other entrants whole ought to win.

  • Mark

    WMATA should thank Calliope for all the positive press she is generating for them.

  • Wil

  • Britny

    Auntie Britny, cousins Chloe and Lulu are so proud of you! It is tough to be as cute as you are, but lets be honest cuteness runs in the family!

  • CH Resident

    Agnes!!! All are great though.

  • Michael

    Dan, thanks again for running this contest – it’s been a lot of fun. One minor suggestion: to avoid confusion and a repeat of the 2000 Presidential election in Florida, it would be helpful to have the names of the pets to the side of the picture instead of below. Having the name below the picture may cause some confusion about which name to vote for (i.e. some may think the name above the picture is the correct one). It would also be helpful to have the pictures in the same order as the list in the poll. I think the last 8 years are a testament to the terrible consequences that can happen when people get confused by ballot layout. Not that any of these pets are as bad as Bush/Cheney… Thanks again for running the contest!

    Cladius is clearly the only animal worth its salt lick.

  • i’m a sucker for guinea pigs. hamsters? cladius is gorgeous. but you’re right, mr. PoP, it’s a hard choice. would have thought agnes would score higher.

  • Agnus looks like a muppet. Vote for Billie Jean!

  • Esmeralda

    @ Anonymous 9:48 Obviously the bird is winning because how can you resist a pet that rides transit? And uses a SmarTrip card, no less? Go Calliope!

  • CB

    Cladius is a real dreamboat… you should vote for him!

  • Al From TN

    Oh no, I voted for Pat Buchanan! Dangling chads! Recount! Re-recount! Re-re-recount!

  • Chuck

    Claudius is a swell fellow, and a lot nicer than his nephew, Caligula.

    Boo! This voting is messed up. Agnes should be winning! Feel the ‘tude from that bird.

  • Lady

    Calliope: 1779. a great year for our fledgling country. Cladius: 1622. a year of tyranny and smallpox. Claudius = smallpox? yes.
