Name the Avocado Plant Contest

Postby angusrobinson » Jun 29, 2009 5:43 pm

If you have been following this thread for the past couple months, you will know that I have been growing an avocado tree on my desk, and that it's incited a heated debate on what the little guy should be named. Well, we have taken all suggestions to heart, and decided to post a poll with what we feel are the top contenders. So, please let us know which name you think is the best by submitting your vote. The poll will last 14 days, ending July 13, and the winning name will get its very own official Transcontinental Media employee name-plate:

Thanks to all who sent suggestions! Good luck!

YAY! A deadline extension! I voted for Ralph too Laura and he's now running neck to neck (node to node? stem to stem?) with Fernando, Juanita and Timotree. Yes Lyn, poor Bob!

What an exciting race! GROW RALPH GROW!! Angus's pot's nameplate has your name on it, buck-o!

I'd have to call him Fernando for short....my second choice!!

Although Fernando isn't really that short. Maybe I'll just call him Frank. :twisted:

I'm afraid I can't abide Ralph. After living with Ralph Deklein for too many years I really have an aversion to the name..... :wink:

Actually, I kinda like Timrajuando..... 8)
