Round 5: So eggsilarating.

Generally Disgruntled is a weird one - he suggests Donkey Kong and then asks can he vote for Diddy Kong instead.
No Mr. Disgruntled, you may not. 

Regardless, Donkey Kong won against The Can-can.

Also, I must pop over and follow Mrs. Pickle before she freaks out.

...but for now, on with business:



You can't make an omelette without breaking a barrel flinging ape...
or, eh... no, that's not right.

Vote Donkey Kong or Eggs in the comments.

Winner faces an 'F' word next round.

Round 4. Who can beat Allen Keys? Can-can Can!

It was close for a bit, which surprised me, but The Can-can kicked Allen Keys to the curb.
(That's alliteration and you know it it, you can't deny it!)

Thanks to Generally Disgruntled for a D-cent idea for this round.

Wow, just wow.


Don't mess with DK!

Get voting: The Can-can or The Donkey Kong - in the comments, k?!

Round 3: 'C word'

So in spite of the fact that "You can't walk like an egyptian on a manic monday while holding an eternal flame with allen wrenches" - Trellin...

Allen Keys won Round 2 and the poor old Bangles lost out.

There's only one solution.

Ladies' legs...

Who is this 'Allen Keys' and why is he so popular around here?


 Kick higher girls.

I have a feeling it's bye-bye Allen.

Vote Allen Keys/Wrenches or The Can-can in the comments.

Round 2: Allen Keys vs. 'B'

Ah, just as I suspected.

Allen Keys, trumped America by over 15 votes.
Shocking stuff.

Second round of cycle two:

Allen Keys (or Wrenches, if you prefer)

Yes, it's not a pic of allen keys, but it came up in the search and I dig, so deal with it.


...or just 'bangles' (still can't afford decent photos of bands etc.)

So, Walk Like an Egyptian into the comments and...
 Vote Allen Keys (wrenches) or (The) Bangles

Winner will face a 'C' thang, next round.

Round 1 (Cycle 2) A vs. Eh?

Welcome to the second cycle of Alphabet Wars.

Let's put everything 'Aardvark' to 'Zippo' behind us, but hopefully retain you guys, and get stuck right in.

Round one is edgy and political but I hope everyone retains the frivolous flavour of the competition all the same.

Flip, yeah!


Handy, yeah!

Vote America or Allen Keys in the comments, and the winner will face a 'b' thing in round 2.

Round-up 6 - You guys fail yourselves.

Contrary to ed's redundant 'prediction' in the last round up post, 'potatoes' was not the overall winner.
It may as well have been, since my fiendish plan for celebration and back slapping fell on its face.

The 'Y' I chose for Round 25 was:

Indeed, y'all made horse meat of the Unicorn, but (and you only needed one more round to be overall champions remember), the majority of you are either masochistic or far too humble for your own good and allowed Zippo to trump you in Round 26.

Incensed at this injustice, I pitted Zippo against the best of the rest in two bonus rounds.
It beat Aardvark in Bonus Round I and fared surprisingly well against Engineering, Kermit and halibut in Bonus Round II.

On the eve of the second cycle of Aplphabet Wars, I am still undecided about Zippo's worthiness.
It has certainly proven itself a worthy competitor, and yet resentment still festers for the cheeky lighter.

Zippo proved to be a real bright spark.
