It's gotta be Drake and Remo.

Sorry Lemon, but you're not part of Idle Thumbs.

#4 Posted by Winternet (8238 posts) -

Can anyone tell me that I got Lemon's name right? He is Steve Rodriguez, right?

I don't even really like Idle Thumbs but Remo is still better

Lemon is awesome, but he's a FUCKING INTERN.

Pretty sure that Steve was the guy who's in Afghanistan but maybe they were both Steve.

@ajamafalous: Ah, you're right, now that I think back on it. You'd think I'd have learned after all that Fear Gauntlet watching.

#10 Posted by Phatmac (5919 posts) -

I don't care about Idle Thumbs so I'll go with Lemon. John Drake is a given already.

#11 Posted by Cloudenvy (5874 posts) -

John Drake and Lemon, duh!

#12 Posted by Gaff (2112 posts) -

Drake and... Wait, am I really going to vote for an intern?!

All of these people seem cool, but I had to go with Drake and Lemon. Drake performed during two PAX panels and his dance-offs with the Bomb Squad are always good for a few laughs. Also, Lemon's extreme lack of sportsmanship was the best part of the otherwise fairly boring Farmville series of videos. Plus, Lemon was, at one point, for better or worse, as much a part of I Love Mondays as crazy backgrounds were.

John Drake and Chris Remo.

Because Drake is Drake and I enjoyed the Chris Remo E3 bombcast.

Yep. I went to college with Steve. I think he introduced me to the site back when it first launched, actually. I was even in two of his QOTW videos.

edit: Well shit, I'm a bad friend. I can't believe I remembered his name incorrectly.

Ekberg for being part of the classic lineup. He was the old starter back in the day. And the man championed Beard Watch 06.

Lemooooooon

If you aren't voting for Remo, you are wrong.

A bit crazy but yeah, Lemon gets a vote from me. I love Condemned and the Fear Gauntlet videos were fantastic.

#21 Posted by Dethfish (3739 posts) -

When's next Fear Gauntlet episode coming out?!

#22 Posted by VisariLoyalist (3091 posts) -

ah brian ekberg is way cooler :(

#23 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1327 posts) -

Drake and Lemon. Other two aren't gb enough

#24 Posted by rawrsair (836 posts) -

It's all about the Drake Lemon.

#25 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5148 posts) -

The Drake and Internet Steve.

#26 Posted by Winternet (8238 posts) -

Fuck! I knew something was wrong. It's Steve Ramirez and not Steve Rodriguez. Damn Latinos, they all sound the same.

By the way, Day Three Poll is also up. Vote here.

#27 Posted by ShadowVirus (835 posts) -

Drake and Remo. Sorry Lemon.

I'm predicting the finals to Drake and Muir, a fight to the death!

#28 Posted by Slay3r1583 (676 posts) -

Making me choose between Drake and Ekberg... that is screwed up man.

#29 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5148 posts) -

@Winternet: Is this (Golden Duder) gonna be annual from now on?

#30 Posted by Winternet (8238 posts) -

@AlexanderSheen: Hmm . . I don't know. Will it make sense to make it annual? Maybe not. Perhaps with some rules change it can become an annual thing.

#31 Posted by Treygdor (18 posts) -

Remo losing to an intern?!

This is why democracy doesn't work.

#32 Posted by h0lgr (958 posts) -

John Drake and Brian Ekberg :c

#33 Posted by mbr2 (590 posts) -

What is this!? Remo Action News losing to an intern? (love you Steve. lots of homo) Also what E3 cast was Remo on? I'm pretty sure I've listened to them all and never heard the dulcet tones of his voice. He was on one of the GDC casts last year that I know.
