The votes are in. If Knights are dubbed and Kings are crowned then the Giants are supersized. Let's climb up to the realm of magic harps and geese that lay golden eggs and take a look at the current inhabitants.

As auditor for the Giant voting I see the ballots as they accumulate. I don't, however, try to tally them. John Stryker does that, and it is a lot of work. In the early years I could almost always guess who would emerge on top. Some years it was a two-horse race. This year I correctly guessed who would occupy the top seven spots, and made Mochy the favourite to claim the top spot, but at various times saw surges for five of the other six strong enough that I wouldn't have been surprised to see any of them emerge as victor.
