Epic battle continues! Kermit (and gang) vs. Leopard.

I do apologise for the delay in getting Round Thirteen, 'x vs. 'M'. underway but there has been much deliberation at Alphabet Wars HQ as to whether to include 'votes' cast in the 'Round Up' posts. The debate rages on still, as I type these very words.
Personally I am as yet undecided but, surely, we will come to a conclusion as, also, (and more importantly) candidate 'M' is also decided.

In the meantime let's have a look at how Leopard fared against Kermit!

I'd like to specifically express major gratitude to
(who blogs very well indeed at his own  'My Own Private Idaho')
for input on the fight tactics.

As the fight began things were pretty simple. Leopard lolled (nothing to do with laughing on the Internet) in a tree as Kermit approached, followed closely by his loyal stalke..., I mean companion Miss Piggy.

Leopard was full of:
"I can totally take these clowns".

Leopard leapt stealthily on to the Muppet couple from his branch to jumpstart the fluff (Christophe).

But... from behind bushes and shrubs all over the place the entire Muppet crew appeared!

Kermit whistles, and here comes the gang. Animal jumps on the leopard's back, and the swedish chef starts preparing a stockpot to "booooil teh loo-pard" in...

The muppets represent an evil, immoral gang of felt that doesn't fight fair. As long as kermit is in the fight, it's going to take a lot to take this posse down. (
(Love the Swedish Chef reference.
Did you know in Sweden he is 'The Danish Chef'?
Børk-a-Børk Børk!

Now, Leopard was not phased by this one bit as the battle degenerated into "a huge ball of ripped fabric and felt". Even Big Bird loped into "the mix with those freaky legs of his" (Aaron). 

Claws ripped through felt, like butter (Robert Fünf). Kermit was Leopard-clawed so badly Miss Piggy could barely recognise him and Leopard himself licked his lips hungrily, eyeing up the battered toad. (Chris).

Did the Muppets lose heart? Never! What course of action did they resort to? Well, the one Muppets are best at. They attempted a sing-off on the Leopard! (Elliot MacLeod-Michael).
Leopard was phased for a moment by the caterwauling and especially Animal drumming on the poor kitty's head.
 Boom-ba-BAP-ba-BOOM BAM BAP!

Fluff flew as Leopard retaliated but all of a sudden human hands appeared from under the Muppets! Yep, Muppet puppeteers thrust their hands from inside the felt and threw aside their hand-wavy sticks and began pummeling the leopard (

At this point Leopard retreated - back up the tree as Muppets and their operators alike bayed for blood below.

If you think things are getting pretty hectic, just wait for what comes next!


Oh noes!

Yes kids, we leave it there on that suspenseful cliffhanger for now (as all at Alphabet Wars HQ have a similar scrap trying debate how to count the votes).

Perhaps you can help decide.

Keep voting Leopard vs. Kermit and contribute to fight tactics in the comments.
