Kevin designed some sweet commemorative medallions for the finals of the Most Awesome State Quarter contest.  Let’s tackle the hard fought Arnold Regional first.

The giant fish of Washington faces the man behind the greatest monument in Washington for the Arnold Regional final.  Lincoln had a renowned appetite for fish, but this fish is pretty darn big.  It’s a drawn out battle, with many points worth enumerating for both candidates, and it’s important to note that…

Wait a second…

What’s this?

Is that? Yes! It is! It’s Wisconsin’s theme music! The Wisconsin state quarter is re-entering the arena! Washington eliminated it back in round 2, but here it is again and it looks like it’s got a folding chair with it!  Washington and Illinois are busy whaling on each other, I don’t think they see it, but the crowd sure does, it’s going nuts! Wisconsin has climbed into the ring with a folding chair and…IT JUST HIT ILLINOIS OVER THE HEAD WITH A CHAIR!!! THIS CANNOT BE HAPPENING!!! Washington has turned around, it’s begging Wisconsin for mercy! But Wisconsin’s got a crazed look in its eye! It keeps muttering “forward”! And IT HITS WASHINGTON WITH THE CHAIR TOO! THIS ONE IS ALL OVER! WISCONSIN COMES OUT OF NOWHERE IN A STUNNER!!!!

    I tried lifting the quarter, but couldn’t, and then Arnie’s head floated up in front of me and berated me for my flabbyness.

    Ain’t technology grand?

    Despite how I acted last night, I’m glad you came back to me. Like this here was a stroke of genius. Genius. I’m sorry for yelling at you. You know I didn’t mean it, it’s just sometimes you push me to do these things, you know? You know I would never do anything to hurt you…

    Behold the awesome power of cheese. When the chips are down and the zombies are breaking through the barricade, who do you want on your side — a fish? Some bearded guy from history? Or a huge, delicious wheel of cheddar? Once again, reason triumphs.

    Tch, that cow has nothing on our talking horse. I mean, really, “Forward”? What does that have to do with cheese? And it didn’t even have the quotes, so how can you be sure the cow is saying it?

    Given my screenname, I do have to give *some* props to Washington and their fish. But Wisconsin’s cow???

    KENTUCKY WAS ROBBED!!!!!

    Wow, I didn’t see that coming. Hopefully Wisconsin isn’t taking steroids. I hear that’s common with beef.

    HOLY COW!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    Curse you, RiffTrax blog comment engine and your non-tag-interpreting ways!

    I’m shocked Kansas didn’t overwhelm all the other quarters with the powerful stench of buffalo. In the science of stench, buffalo beats cow every time.

    Yet nothing beats cheese. NOTHING.
