Insert Lightbulb-Over-Head Sound FX Here

New poll! Giving a nod to one of my top 10 desert island movies, Fight Club, what is my power animal?

  • Lion: King of the jungle (even tho the ladies do most of the hunting...)
  • Bear: Godless killing machines!
  • Great White: Remember when the media got their collective panties in a bunch about shark attacks? And then PETA made with the crazy and got in on the action? Then 9/11 happened and everyone forgot about Jaws? Yeah, well sharks are still pretty badass.
  • Hawk: Death from above!
  • Black Mamba: Always bet on black.
  • Black Widow: HH's latest nemesis.
For those of your picking the last choice [Write In], leave a comment if you can think of a better animal (including with a good supporting argument). I'm definitely open to suggestions.

Wildebeest--what else?

HH is correct to fear black widows. My wife doesn't understand why I'm so cautious about digging into wood piles or lifting up grungy carpet scraps that have been laying out behind a shed. She would if she grew up under the shadow of the death spider.

With that said, I've never seen a black widow survive raging torrents with predators doing everything they can to destroy her. Unless of course you're talking about Myrlie Evers. That's why I gotta' go with the Wildebeest as well.

A Liger, of course. It's pretty much my favorite animal.

I was hoping you'd do a poll on your Roller Derby name.

Heh--I knew the write in would get the most votes and I *did* think about listing Wild. E. Beest...

Keep 'em coming!

As for my roller derby name, I couldn't brainstorm enough options to make a poll. I'll have to work on that. :)

crocodiles...amazes me that they can run or swim after you. i'll never forget an alligator that ran towards my mom and i at a florida botanical garden.

bc said...

Wild E. Beest? No way. As we all know, lions eat them, crocs take them under, and hyenas rip their flesh apart. It's the sentimental choice, but I'd take a Great White anyday. Remember the pizza delivery guy in South Bend who had a shark attack scar on his leg? Yikes.

I am thinking bear. Wild Alaskan salmon anyone?? You are pretty tuf, yea, but you won't mess with anyone unless they mess with you....then you have the right to rip their face off. They are also playful and are good moms.

megB said...

oh, and did I forget that bears like to scare the crap out of their little sister when she thinks the bear is sleeping too late and the little sister innocently tries to wake the bear and basically the bear makes the little sister crap her pants.

The power animal would have to be the female seahorse. She has the power to reverse nature and nag the male into giving birth! WTF

BEAR FTW!!!

What else did you expect to hear from me?
