Poll Results 120

The question:

Which of these is correct?

Get ahold of yourself.
10 (11%)
She traveled to afar off land.
0 (0%)
I became apart of the family.
3 (3%)
More than one is correct.
5 (5%)
All are wrong.
67 (78%)

This seemed to be a hard one. Congrats to 11% of you. The phrase "ahold of" is actually correct. I had to look it up several times just to be sure.
The incorrect items should have been like this:
a far-off land
a part of the family

Is the current poll broken? The question is new, but the answers are old and locked.

Wow! Never mind. It just fixed itself. I guess I should reboot every so often. :-)
