I'm planning to make a TV version, so I'll keep George Jetson for that poll.

I could make it to 30, there was enough room for 35 but one of my year's resolution is to stick to 30, I noticed with 35 options, you're lucky if the bottom 20 gets more vote than 50 votes by the end of the day, certainly not pointless but not relevant in the actual format.

"By George",  I think George Bailey would get my vote. I like the resolution to try to cap poll options under thirty.
