It's a bit of a tradition for us to highlight some of our favorite (read: funny, odd, weird) answers from you, our creative and opinionated readers who took the time to vote in the annual Best of Boise survey.
And, as usual, you didn't disappoint us. Voters managed to turn simple questions into excuses for head-scratching, thought-provoking and laugh-out-loud answers. Thanks for making the ballot-counting process so much more enjoyable for us.
Here's a sample of some of our favorite responses from this year. To find out who really won, check the Sept. 30 issue of
