(I'm typing this up in a rush right before work, so pardon any errors. I'll fix them when I get time. Holla @ me if you notice anything wrong.)
Big thanks to Pharaoh and pyro for getting me off my ass to finish doing the awards even though the original setup I had for partially automating it was lost. And another big, big thanks to pyro for finishing up counting the votes! Also thanks to everyone who nominated and voted!
A couple other things before I get to the winners:
First, I took some liberty with the conspiracy theorist of the year category and chose Alex Jones. He was already neck-and-neck with the quote that was voted to represent the Anonymous Cowards at GLP, and that quote technically isn't a conspiracy, anyway. Plus, the Anonymous Coward hivemind were last year's winners. (And you know deep down in your heart that Alex Jones' quote is funnier.)
Second, one of the winning quotes (#106783) wasn't from 2016, but I technically never said that nominations for the 2016 FSTDT Awards had to be from 2016; it was just taken for granted. ;] Plus it slipped by us unnoticed entirely too long to disqualify it.
Now, without further ado I present to you the winners of the 2016 Fundie Awards!!
