Dillahunty vs. Smalley: who gets the WWJTD bump?

There’s a contest going on down in Texas between a few of my favorite celebrity atheists who are all trying to raise money for Camp Quest.  I’ve been put between a rock and a hard place.  You see, I’m friends with both David Smalley (host of Dogma Debate) and Matt Dillahunty (host of the Atheist Experience), and both of them, knowing that the WWJTD bump could very well be the difference between victory and defeat, have implored me to grant them my endorsement.

They are both promising to do particular things if they win.  Matt has said he will die his trademark goatee pink, while David has said he will get the equality symbol tattoo’d on him if he wins.  The permanency of the tattoo demonstrates commitment.  I admire that.

And plus, Matt is already ahead by a lot.  Everybody knows that I tend to turn my sword in favor of the little guy, and this is no exception.  It is to David Smalley that I bestow the coveted WWJTD bump.  May he wear it proudly.  Go donate to his page here.

And if you’d rather donate to Matt, his page is located here.

    Aron is the one furthest behind. If you are going for the underdog, go for AronRa!

    Aron Ra is in this competition and the furthest behind.

    The pink bird was the first thing I’ve offered. It was the ante, and I said so…waiting to see what the others would offer. I toyed with the idea of a tattoo, but they cost money and I’d rather give that money directly to campquest…just like the money I’m getting from posting daily videos on my YouTube channel.

    You’ve backed the wrong horse, based on incomplete information. This is a sad, sad, day.

      Bah, pink beard, not bird.

      • BabyRaptor

        You could get a pink bird dyed into your beard.

      I totally agree, Matt! I think your reasoning for not getting a tattoo is sound. Dying your beard pink is something some might consider embarrassing, whereas tattooing an equality symbol (although permanent), can be hidden and it’s not something a sensible person would be ashamed of having tattooed on their body. It also costs a lot of money to get a tattoo, which is money that could be going to Camp Quest, as you said!

      Ooh, you could get a pink bird to sit on your shoulder and match the pink beard, though that would also cost money (but its piratelike nature would help combat global warming, according to my religion).
