let the voting begin.

i received over 25 entries
for the roadkill contest this year.
many good ones.
but because i'm a libra,
i'm having a hard time deciding on a grand winner.
keep in mind,
3 trophy prizes will be awarded
along with the grand prize stool.
on friday,
i will announce ALL the winners
and show you
ALL the lovely pictures.
i know you're excited.
but for now,
vote on my top 4
using that fancy widget to the left.
please remember when voting,
it's not only what it is,
it's how GRUESOME it looks.
take everything into consideration.
and be fair please.
1. the gloriously gut filled armadillo.
yes, it's JUST an armadillo
but you know how much i love guts.
did u even know armadillos HAD this much guts?
no wonder he was brave enough
to cross the street.
he definitely had the guts for it.
i am seriously loving this one.
blow it up for good times.

2. the ooey gooey filled ball of ??
i think i like this one so much
because it's so mysterious.
is it a snail?
no, too big.
is it a turtle?
no, too brown and curly.
is it an armadillo?
no, to yellow and juicy.
wtc IS this?
whatever it is,
i think i can smell it from here.

3. the large smiling deer with bed head.
so maybe not the most bloody,
but he's definitely the most broken.
i'm pretty sure EVERY single bone
is broken.
i also love,
the bed head he has going on.
and of course,
the nice grin and horsey teeth.

4. the random gator crossing the road.
ok first of all,
a gator? in the street?
extra points for that one.
and then with guts too?
if only the picture
was a TAD clearer.
i'd love to REALLY examine this one.

now go,
cast your vote!
friday, friday, friday
ALL winners will be announced.
and remember,
you must vote
not in the comments here.
your vote will NOT COUNT if you leave it here.

I definitely think it's between the alligator or the armadillo. Pretty gruesome looking pictures. Can't imagine what the other pictured you didn't post looked like.

A Beautiful Life said...

my mouth is salivating, because i'm about to vomit...

Bonnie said...

Gator for sure.

Anonymous said...

Those pictures make me want to throw up...YUCK! But I vote the gator. That is complete grossness!

Staci said...

I'm totally bias and voted for my poor deer. I'm sooo excited it made the running! I must say that gator is pretty all of these are pretty good finds.

Untypically Jia said...

Gator. Mostly because I live in the Southwest and there's a rare chance you can see a Gator in a zoo let alone crossing the street!

Michelle @ Dibble Dabble Life said...

I voted...I wish I had an award to give you for the most freaking O-R-I-G-I-N-A-L {and grossest} contest in bloggy world!!

Bonnie said...

It won't let me vote for the gator. So whatever the score ends with add a vote for gator.

Betsy said...

I am torn between the gator and the armadillo... I mean, that armadillo is in PIECES, but... who hits an alligator? They don't really jump out and "get you" like deer do, and they aren't quite small enough to MISS like an armadillo... haven't voted yet... need to sleep on it. Thank you in advance for the nightmares. :-P

Kim said...

I would say #2 because I actually was held my breath when I saw it. I didn't want to take a chance of any fumes to traveling through the computer to make me vomit.

Laura said...

I honestly don't know who to vote for. I like the armadillo because it's smashed to bits and there's this advert on the telly back home that says "Armadillo's crunchy on the outside, squishy in the middle." Which is obviously true. That advert was pretty much a documentary!

I like the gator too because... it's exotic? I'm Scottish.

BUT in terms of "road kill" that ball of gloopy gloop isn't even recognisable! I think it was a gremlin... that's road kill right there. My dad would NOT eat that.

The deer's a classic. Classic road kill. I'm guessing that's Staci's and I have a crush on her. It's too hard to choose.

Valinda said...

It was a unanimous vote for the gator so we logged it in. Fred can't wait to see her pictures up on Friday.

Adriane said...

I'm going to have to go with the unrecognizable goo. The deer makes me sad. The gator is too easy to avoidable - surely the driver could have swerved just a bit? And the armadillo is too... red. But I had to stare awhile at the goo, trying to figure it out. No, I don't know what it is either. But it gets my vote.

ashley @ little miss momma said...

this was really hard--I went with the gator! I mean when will you EVER see that again! although #1 and #2 were sooooo good!

Enos Heinzen said...

One of my mission buddies wanted to start a roadkill calender because there were soooooo many goodies on the roads of kentucky. his favorite that he took was a possum with its pregnant belly/guts spread all over. So imagine bloody guts and little dead baby possums all mixed together!

Lindsey said...

I had nothing worthy around here to take pictures of for this contest. I was so bummed...I even had my husband out on the lookout. Nothing but lousy squirrels and possums.
These are good. Real good!
Congrats guys :)

Kris said...

I voted for the unidentifiable ball of goo simply because it is such a mystery, but love the gator as well.

Brianna said...

You wouldn't see any of those critters here in Canada as roadkill, with exception of the Deer. I vote the weird ball of goo that's just strange. Although, they are all DISGUSTING!

David and Teresa said...

A true Texas road kill with blood and guts. That armadillo is a real road kill!!!!!!!! I am hungry now.

Becca said...

the only thing that gater is missing is a gold metal around it's neck...or what used to be it's neck!!! I smell a winner...or a loser in this case. Poor thing!

amylouwhosews said...

the wrapping paper laying in the street all bruised and broken that I took a picture of definitely wouldn't have made it.

These are horrifyingly fantastic!!! seriously. I wish the alligator had been in better focus to. dis.gus.ting.

I'm for the armadillo. red velvet cake will never look the same again. (steel magnolias)
