Even Ben Ward hasn’t posted his response yet! Is this the end of the meme as we know it. Are we finally too tired of it all?

# Veerle Pieters responded on 25th January 2006 with...

I just fulfilled my duties :o)

# Alexander Berglund responded on 26th January 2006 with...

Did you know both you and John Oxton tagged Ben Ward and that Ben has already posted his share?

Man, he’s ahead of the game these days. Teach me not to look past his latest post. The boy is too prolific…
