Five Word Speech Submissions: Boy, Are You Guys Good!

On Monday, I asked for suggestions for the 5 word acceptance speech I would give at last night's Webby Awards. And you came through with an embarrassment of pithy riches -- offering up over 1,000 suggestions. Some were impassioned, some were funny, many were both -- and all were very creative. Color me impressed. And appreciative: thanks to everyone who sent one in.

It was a very tough call but, in the end, we decided to go with "President Obama... Sounds good, right?", submitted by Sunflower1 (your book is on the way).

The other finalists were: "Big Brother, we're watching you" (submitted by SilthyTove); "No country for old media" (jungpatawan); and "Fuck it... We'll liveblog it!" (LiarLiarIraqsOnFire)
