The LAMB Action Hero: Round One Results.

by Nick Jobe · July 18, 2008 · Uncategorized · 8 Comments

Well, round one has ended in good timing! I can give the results now, and the winners can begin on their next articles over the weekend (as long as they aren’t distracted by some movie that came out this weekend… I can’t remember what it is at the moment, though… hmm…). Anyway, the results! It was an incredible first round with tons of voting and a few close calls!

Bruce Wayne/Batman Vs. Lara Croft.

This was the most voted-for match of the bunch, and boy was it a doozy. Between the awesomeness that is Bruce Wayne and the hotness that is Lara Croft, many of the male population of the LAMB had difficulty deciding between the two. But Lara Croft came out victorious with a staggering 31 votes over Bruce’s 22.

Tony Stark/Iron Man Vs. Underdog.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the least voted-for match (which is funny considering one of them was Iron Man, and that Iron Man was written by our very own Fletch). However, the match was still an obvious no-brainer (sorry Underdog), with Mr. Stark kicking the dog aside with a vote of 13 to 6.

John McClane Vs. Nausicaa.

This match, much like the first, was a battle of machismo and sex. John McClane is obviously one of the most iconic action heroes ever created, while Nausicaa… has ‘lesbian-y tendencies’. Apparently we have some moral LAMBs around here, because John McClane yippee kie yay’d to the top spot with an incredibly tight vote of 12 to 11.

Leon Vs. Nicholas Angel.

Finally, there was the battle of the man who takes care of a plant and kicks ass against… the man who takes care of a plant and kicks ass. It was a tough vote for me, as I wrote for Mr. Angel, yet Leon is one of my favorite movies. Apparently, though, others didn’t have the same confliction as Nicholas Angel fought his way to the winning spot with a vote of 14 to 8 (with no actual bribery involved!).

So there we are. The next round will begin as soon as possible, and I ask all winners to begin writing their essays for round two so they can get them to me ASAP. Round two should hopefully begin next week. And here is the updated Versus Bracket (click to enlarge):

Oh look at that… I’m going to be going up against Fletch in round two. It will be a battle of epic proportions! And I thank everybody who wrote in for round one, everybody who voted for round one, and everybody that is going to be participating for round two. Let’s hope the next one goes just as smoothly! Thanks!

    Don’t worry folks! Bruce Wayne, Leon, and myself are all headed down to Gotham Pub and Grill for a few rounds. I would invite Underdog, but there is a strict policy against pets. I asked Nausicaa if she cared to join me, but she said she doesn’t visit a bar that doesn’t serve sake. Oh, well.

    If my battle in this next round doesn’t get the most votes, I’m shutting down this whole cockamamie operation. What the hell, man? I wants love and I wants it now!

    Oh, and congrats to all the winners thus far.

    Fletch: LOL.

    And don’t believe Fletch! He’d never shut down the LAMB. He likes the power position too much 😛 .

    A vote for me is like a vote for… me. So… vote for me!

    @ Fletch: Is it cockamamie or cockadoodie? I keep thinking it’s a cockadoodie car.

  6. Aw man, I barely beat the first female cartoon and now I got to up against the one that is Angelina Jolie? All I gots is Bruce Willis, not Brad Pitt!

    Michael, don’t worry, you’ll do fine.
