We cheated a little bit this year by including this category about a missing category on our online Best of Missoula ballot. And you know what? It worked. We received roughly 200 different responses
, a few of which may actually make it into next year’s poll. In the meantime, we’d like to thank the three different people who pushed for some variation of “Best Dog” (only in Missoula) and the one vote for “Best Husband” (we like to imagine it was submitted by the husband himself). In fact, we had a lot of voters looking to pay homage to a loved one, although “Best Place to Get a Handjob at 1:59 a.m.” wasn’t one of them based on the supplied answer. Speaking of personal attacks, the “Best Person Likely to Cheat on You in Real Life…” suggestion was a little too much information, but we appreciate the head’s up. As for the rest of the responses—“Best Moment of the Year,” “Best Busker,” “Best Dressed Man or Woman of Missoula,” etc.—we’ll take them into consideration for 2011.
