Round Up 3 (Next up will be the Kermit vs. Leopard result and "vs. 'M'" - soooo exciting!)

At the end of 'Round Up 2' we were faced with a serious dilemma. Engineering was knocking opponents left and right, and was starting to bore the heck out of me for one.
We needed a worthy contestant that would prove victor over the boring annoyance Engineering was becoming. If GTA San Andreas couldn't beat Engineering, what on this Godforsaken planet could?

The answer was so obvious I felt ashamedly stupid for not having thought of it already. 
Fish. Duh!

Round 8:
Engineering           vs.               Halibut

You even have to ask? Of course Halibut won! Check the full post & comments here.

Round 9:
Huuuuge Halibut   vs.           Internet Relay Chat
I was surprised how many of you are oldskool geeks. IRC won! Check the full post & comments here.

Round 10:
Internet Relay Chat   vs.              Jango Fett
Time for the big guns. pewpew - Jango. Check the full post & comments here.

Round 11:

Round eleven was a bit of a St. Patrick's Day (parade) special. The drunken scrap took place out in public and it got pretty filthy. Even Kermit's missus got involved. Hiiiii-yah!

Jengo                          vs.                        Kermit
The Muppet couple fought too dirty for Mr. Fett - he may even have cried a bit.

Round 12:

...which brings us up to date! Huzzah!
Things are getting way out of hand over at Kermit vs. Leopard.

Kermit (and Piggy)            vs.                     Leopard     

I can't confirm any details but I hear both sides are drafting in all kinds of weird and nasty help. Inside sources have indicated that the entire Muppet brigade are in on this one and that attempts have been made by both sides to recruit Charlie '*WINNING*' Sheen.
Steve Jobs may or may not be involved but there has certainly been mention of more leopards, Tiger, Snow Leopard and newcomer to the fray, Lion.
Yikes! The energy is palpable. It's all claws and ripped felt (and singing?) all over the place!

The Kermit vs. Leopard massacre continues (for a limited time!) over here.

*Note: Comments are influencing fight tactics!
Voting is open for another while yet, so get in there and contribute to the carnage.

Thanks yet again to E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E ! for your contributions
and for making this whole concept work!

Final round up special shout-out to alco-chums Chris and G.
Chris sips whisky in moderation with class at Simply Scotches,
while G props up the bar and wows regulars with nifty bar tricks at Bar Science.
Tip: Do not get involved in a drinking game with G - he is a pro!

While on the subject, let's have a toast to the second half of the contest. *clink*

Post predictions for the winner in your comments. If you're right maybe you will get a prize! (remember it will most likely begin with a letter further on than 'L' - unless Kermit or Leopard walk it).

Peace and good times to all!


  1. thanks for the recap.

    apparently, i've missed out on a lot of good fights. :(

  2. In K v L, the real question isn't who wins, but will the winner have enough in him to take on a fully rested M????

  3. Good one!
    Got yourself a new follower! :)

  4. And what M will the Leopard face:P

  5. I like the plugging in EVERYONE lol stylin

    (Smiley emoticon overload all up in this comment.)

  10. currently the halibut seems to be winning for me :D

  11. So will Kermit be taking on a mongoose, a meerkat or a mug of beer?

  12. It was a really interesting thing to be a part of!

  13. nice recaps there, im waiting for the results of the fight, my moneys on kermit, if he and the bacon offed Fett the leopard aint got a chance

  14. Man this must be some huge titanic battle... I'm betting on the muppet crew through until the tsunami and then wipe out...

  15. Electric Addict - sorry I missed that earlier.
    Got to give the props even if most will miss it. ; ]

    It's worth the effort for the extra specials.

    Next time I'll get you - promise. I love your Electro blog by the way.

    E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E else?
    Thanks a mill as always. New round coming up!

    I'm less excited about it by now to be honest, since I am going to have to count a *lot* of votes *and* I have to think of a suitable 'M'!

    Oh well... until next time take it easy all!

  16. Looking forward to this. Followed!

  17. Cool comparison!

    Thanks for sharing!


  18. Nice round up. I'm interested in what you're going to do when you get to the end of the alphabet. Will you just stop?

  19. Questions, Questions... ; ]
    You'll just have to wait and see.

    Questions and everyone else. Sorry if you were expecting the new battle today. I was hoping to post it all right but had some emergency stuff to deal with. Nothing serious and all sorted, so hopefully tomorrow we can get rolling again!

  20. Cool, this next battle should be pretty intense!

  21. looking forward to the next battle
