Ok, here is the 7 v 10 matchup. Rec'd v. How I Met Your Mother. Read the information behind the fold and then vote in the poll.
God, I hope rec'd wins. I hate this HIMYM show. It's SO overrated. Does this count as illegal campaigning???

CBKWit was the first to bring "Rec'd" to the CGB populace last September, but slowly, others began picking up on it. Rocksanddirt, Avinash, and royrules22 were all early adopters, and by month's end, 18 instances of "rec'd" could be found. As of this writing, 266 instances have been recorded, and more appear every week.
Some, however, were not satisfied with "rec'd". They needed to explain why they had recommended the comment. These reasons ranged from standard praise -- "Rec'd for an excellent situational analysis" -- to absurd -- "rec'd for the lucious creepy factor". Here are some of my favorites:

And he’s an integral part of a long and (now) drawn out story about how Ted Mosby (Sex Architect) met the mother of his children.
If you’re still waiting, let me tell you a little more about the show and its place on CGB. There are a few viewers here who really follow the show, and like to discuss plot twists, predict possible angles that the show could take, go out to bars in Berkeley in suits, and generally reminisce about how good the show used to be. Twist of course, isn’t one of these people, because HIMYM is not Twilight. It’s a great show, you should watch it. You should also join our conversations about how bad season 4 was. But more than that, you should vote for it, because it’s a meme that keeps on giving. I don’t even know what that means, but vote for it anyway.
I hope you’re not lactose intolerant, because the second half of that word is…
