And the Golden Vuvuzela Nominees Are…
It was a great five weeks, and we’re all relieved that it’s coming to an end, for no other reason than increased productivity around our offices.
In the right-hand column, there is a poll where you can vote for the recipient of the Stinque Golden Vuvuzela for Hottest Hottie of the World Cup.
In the words of LBJ, Vote Early, Vote Often.
Reminders of who the nominees are, listed in alphabetical order…
