Was Jolly Jelly added by Norm or written in as part of the story? Just wonderin'.

The music was written by him, the lyrics were part of the story, IIRC.

Welcome to the forums trickyfish. The forum rolls continue to grow. Not unlike that suspicious green slime-mold in the disused basement bathroom.

It's looking like Teddy Bears is a strong contender for the next round, which is fine by me. Wouldn't hurt my feelings for it to make top honors.

Looks like Toast is slipping though. I wonder if it was just too zany or if it suffers from being one of the older stories.

Note to Babel fans. I wouldn't mind if it made it all the way either. Just because it didn't make my top five, doesn't mean I think it wasn't a fine story. It was.
