2010 DarkChat Awards

Well, the 4th DARKCHAT awards have finally come to an end.

The champagne cocktails have been drunk, the shortbread eaten and the Ironbru left well alone. We even had a surprise visit from Uncle Scrooge McDuck to continue the Scottish theme. (We will gloss over the debate between Rick & Phil about who got the most mentions in David's Ode & how Kara won the quiz without even going to the festival.)
 
 And who knew Phil was afraid of Ice Cream scrapping?
 
I know you are all keen to discover who won so with no further ado let us congratulate all the winners, especially "Barry and Stuart", "The Importance Of Being Earnest", " A Nifty History of Evil and " The Penny Dreadfuls who all won 2 awards.
