low fat latte

low fat latte is the favored entry according to the poll. perhaps you were influenced by the very thought of spending some quality time at the local cafe..........very few votes for "our doubts are traitors" even tho there is a subliminal (actually quite obvious) butt poking out through the bubble.
i will POST if any of these entries make it into the show..........
thanks for voting
