Nasty 1 all the way! It fits you!

What he said! 

See, now, I don’t think so. But that’s because I best associate him with his original, which was number 3.  Which is why I wondered about whether more recent arrivals who never saw the earlier ones etc. Plus he kept that first one twice as long as the second one, so I think he had a chance to grow into it. 

But I really just think it’s a better photograph, too! The way those fingers give it a sense of dimensional depth, while partially obscuring his true expression, thus providing a bit of emotional depth as well. Great photo! 

I really am putting way too much thought into this, though! (you know you’re a hardcore ‘pudlian etc)

I think I used 1 and 3 for around the same amount of time, @Von Bontee. Though, at a guess, have used 1 for a couple of months more than 3.

@Ron Nasty 

Having committed my choice to you in person, I went for number 3. However I’m not so sure now. Such a fiendish poll.

Only #1 is as nasty a photo as Mr. Ron Nasty’s avatar deserves to be. Only #1 reflects his nasty personality. Long live Ron Nasty!

It’s the beginning of May. So what is the result?

And yes I’ve unpinned it as stipulated at the beginning.

Well, it looks like Nasty One… won. a-hard-days-night-john-6 The poll, anyway. *quietly triumphs* 

I always thought that one channelled his nastiness the best. Or what Oudis said above.

I almost feel sorry for Nasty #4.  He got zero votes.

Firstly, thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.

I expected maybe a dozen votes tops, so imagine my surprise and delight at over double that. Nasty appreciates the effort!

Thanks to @meanmistermustard for the pinning and unpinning. I’m glad @Joe and the mods allowed me to get away with the thread!

Thanks to @Beatlebug for the last minute reminder, which I’m not sure I would have thought of even had I not been experiencing interweb problems at the time!

So, what is my decision…

I always thought it would be a tussle between 1 & 3, which is how it turned out (poor old 4!).

I have an affection for both.

I am going to go with the majority, mainly. Number 1 is going to be my avatar. However, I am going to reserve the right to use Number 3 for up to (but not exceeding) 4 months in any calendar year.

My favourite irony of this poll? Well, that would be @Zig!

I had the idea for this poll a long while back. I had it when I first changed from 3 to 1. It was only meant to be for two weeks, then 2, 4 and 5 for two weeks each, followed by the poll.

In that two weeks came a post from Zig though, saying how much he loved the new avatar (1), and that I shouldn’t change it again. This was quickly followed by a nod of agreement by someone else. So I dumped the poll idea, thinking I’d found the perfect Nasty. The idea only came back after changing my avatar for the April Fool and going all Von.

I thought it was the perfect time, as it was the first variation on my avatar since adopting 1. And so I went for it…

And what did Zig vote for, eloquently and very funnily, number 1 of course, the avatar he’d told me not to change again… number 3? He voted for 3? The funkin’ barsteward who told me he loved 1, and that I shouldn’t change again, voted for feckin’ 3!

Well!!!! I arsk you!!!!a-hard-days-night-george-10

Thanks all!

I love that you prepared this elaborate poll, only to warn us (in the very first post!) that you may not even go with the majority choice! Which is partly why I felt no qualms about voting twice. 

Glad that I’ll still get to see my choice for up to (but not exceeding) 4 months in any calendar etc. 

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Sorry for posting on a thread that has been dead for 2 years but it’s very fun to do so. Anyways, I prefer 3 over 1 because 1 looks pissed off.
