Welcome to the fifth (of six) qualifying rounds to find the winner of this year's Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Opening Line.

Voting's a little different this time. Here's how it works:

The winners of rounds 1-5 automatically make the final. The 2nd place finishers go forward into Round 6 to battle it out for the last place in the final. In the case of a tie, the tied entries both (or all) go through.
