What beats what, Blog Guy?

frog-and-cycle-220.jpgBlog Guy, will you help settle some bar bets about what beats what if you match them against each other?

Sure. I can set up any kind of test match for you. My budget is huge.

Okay, a guy leaping like a frog, against a Yamaha motorcycle. Who wins?

As you can see in this photo, the Yamaha creamed the leaping frog guy.

jockeys-360.jpgCool! A race horse against a massive container ship. Who wins?

Surprisingly in our test match the container ship beat three horses.

Lastly, two young punks with hammers against an older woman with a broom?

I even shot video of this one. The broom-lady creamed the punks.

Wow! This is the best online service I’ve ever seen. I’m joining your Oddly Enough Blog Facebook network.

Welcome, italic-font stranger. Lots of others are doing likewise.

Oooo look! It’s an artsy rendition of the Illiad in a modern context: The ship in the background represents the triremes landing on the shores of Troy, the chariots on the beach are being used for the single combat style fighting of the time,… Oh and look! There’s Hector’s dead body on the ground while Achilles raises a flag of victory over his motorcycle!
