We have a winner

It was a close race for the geological eras mnemonic contest, but Fox edged out NBC in the end. The Family Guy inspired mnemonic garnered 28% of the vote, with the runner up inspired by The Office, getting 26% of the 249 total votes.

WINNER: Inspired by The Family Guy:
Cartoonist, MacFarlane, presents plot:
[Cenozoic, Mesozoic, Paleozoic, Proterozoic]
Quagmire takes Chinese, Japanese, Thai
[Quaternary, Tertiary, Cretaceous, Jurassic, Triassic]
prostitutes plus Meg.
[Permian, Pennsylvanian, Missisippian]
Devious Stewie organizes crime.
[Devonian, Silurian, Ordovician, Cambrian]

RUNNER UP: The Office
Clever Mockumentary Paper People.
[Cenozoic, Mesozoic, Paleozoic, Proterozoic]
Question... That's Classy Jim, Talented Pennsylvanian Paper Merchant?
[Quaternary, Tertiary, Cretaceous, Jurassic, Triassic, Permian, Pennsylvanian, Missisippian]
Dwight Schrute Openly Counters.
[Devonian, Silurian, Ordovician, Cambrian]

I did notice some funny business, with many voters coming from Facebook. I didn't say that was not allowed though. So, the winner gets extra credit. I'll give the runner up some, too, since it was so close...
