A couple of weeks ago we asked you to send in submissions for the top ten centimetres of 2012. Well, we here at Alligator Wine have collected your submissions and voted on the best of the best. So, without further ado, we are proud to present to you the definitive list of the top 10 cms of 2012.
Grant argued that there is no Berlin without the “-lin”, and we couldn’t agree more. Centimetre five to six is good enough for number ten on our list.
This photo of our favourite cat is sure to surprise. For you see, Eddie decided to measure his eyes. Measure his eyes? How very wise. And because of that, number nine’s his prize!
A late-October submission from Christopher certainly spooked us enough into adding this one to the list at number eight.
Franklin’s submission wocka-wockas its way to number seven on our list.
How our hearts cannot resist the lovable mole that is Krtek.
“Might I suggest this as #5?” What a clever suggestion, Dennis. A 5kg logo terminating at cm 5 on the measurement is certainly at home at number 5.
The question should be: Why isn’t Anaheim enforcer George Parros’ mustache on every top ten list?
The first two centimetres of this contribution make up the first two centimetres of the P in the neighbourhood of “Prague 2”. Though we realize it’s difficult to measure a sign and take a photo at the same time without looking like a total freak, some foresight by Lenka to measure the first two centimentres of the second letter of “Prague 2” (in this case, the R) would’ve surely warranted some serious argument for the second position on our list. Though, in our minds, it’s still good enough for number three.
Our only major landmark that made the cut this year, the Golden Gate Bridge is beautiful enough to warrant all five centimetres make the list.
Either Martin has great taste, or he knows exactly the right buttons to push to influence the judges. Centimetres twelve through fifteen delightfully form the foundation for our home and native land.
Once again, I’d like to give a special thanks to everyone who contributed submissions this year. It surely helped to make this top ten one of the top ten top ten lists that I’ve ever taken part in.
Those who were lucky enough to see their submissions on our list will be sent a special gift from all of us here at Alligator Wine. For the rest that didn’t make the cut, better luck next year!
