Vote Trivia ’08 was an easy theme for The Posse to grasp, especially the rhetoric minded Captain F. He started the Posse effort out right with a heavily loaded INTRO, full of politically minded quotes, including the words of the current presidential candidates that year. It was also marked Captain F.’s 15th year as a trivia volunteer which he saluted with a special presentation at the awards ceremony.
On the Challenge Line, the Posse was heavy into the skits including a spoof promo for a reality series So You Want To Be A Presidential Candidate. Posse audio theater featured a skit about voters competing to see if they are smarter than a presidential candidate. The results were not surprising. It was not a good year for challenges as the team fell flat, as did the Posse call-in contest: Trivia’s Best Campaign Pledge. It was a follow on to the previous year’s Trivia Idol, but never garnered a single entry.
This year brought the return of Digital Dave (minus his brother Fast Eddie) from the Philly clan. In addition to charter members Captain F., Wildman, and Phal; J-Mont, from the United clan, and Jack P., of the East Sconnie clan, joined the Posse efforts this year. Finally, there were a few non sequitur original Posse productions which were just a way to get The Voice of Corn to provide great outtakes for the trivia-in-review piece. VoC delivered loquaciously.
