Minnesota Public Radio has posted some of the disputed ballots from the recount of the spandex-tight U.S. Senate Race in Minnesota. These are great fun to look at if you're only reviewing ten or fifteen ballots in one sitting and if you don't actually have to decide who gets the vote.

Somehow, though, I doubt the elections officials involved see the humor in voters who filled in two bubbles or who made stray marks on their ballot or who came up with any number of other creative ways to obscure their actual voting intentions.

Yes, someone voted for Al Franken and "Lizard People."
