Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 18: Fantasy Comedy Draft

Today was the monumental Fantasy Comedy Draft on Vertically Striped Radio, that's right, we had 7 guys on the phone all at the same time, and we were drafting funny people to make up fantasy teams of funny people to compete in a contest where votes determine the winner. You say, "What a waste of time." I say, "Visionary new way to select the president of the United States."

Either way, I think the audio was mostly entertaining, it involved the seven of us picking our comedians, the Ed singing songs, MJ drafting himself (Oh yes, he did!), and a bunch of other randomness including the seven of us "autodrafting" for the one guy who signed up to play and then didn't show up.

I don't know if it was a commercial success, but I enjoyed myself greatly, which is really all I was going for with this crazy business. If you're interested, the teams are listed below for your perusal, and then you can vote on which is the strongest team above.
