Okay, so remember how a while back we did a poll on who should be in the center of the human pinwheel? Well, we’re finally back with the results and also some heartbreaking news.
First up, the overwhelming winner of the poll was…

That’s right, he downright ran away with it, tallying an impressive 80% of the vote! A good number of you also wanted to help save Mega-G’s knees by putting him in the center. There were a sizable amount of write-ins, including an impressive campaign for Ben-Jon, some Mikey fans (or Mikey himself) advocating for the creator the pinwheel, and a few of you sassypants who wanted us, as in Troi and Crusher, in the center.
So now, do you want the good news or the bad news first?
We’ll start with the bad.
It looks like we have seen the last of the wonder that is the human pinwheel. With Cowboy Conlon departing and due to the addition of new songs, “Higher and Higher” is being retired from the VP rotation for the time being. Yes, let’s all take a moment to have a good cry, and then let’s compose ourselves.
Sadly, our attempts to get a Zombie Pinwheel added to “Thriller” also seem to have failed. But, we told you there was good news, and it’s true.
Before disappearing forever, there was at least one last human pinwheel. It took place at Bobert and Mrs. Bobert’s wedding reception, and it was magical. You guys… look who was in the center.
That’s right. The human pinwheel went out just the way it should. With McCrockett in the middle.
