I've been voting for Gatorage. So how many of you are actually dudes? Cock for croc?

That was too easy.

I love how we've all stopped arguing scenarios. It's devolved into like-ability. Kinda weird when you consider what the creatures are. :-)

The other option is that it's just Bonokah, and we're too busy partying.

I've sent a tight-beam to all the Culture GSV's, GCU, and ROU's in the vicinity to press the attack.

Full scale assault until Beastmas.

It's been a while since you quoted your namesake. It's about time!

I'm off to vote again!

For those who just gave a big "Huh?" my namesake comes from Iain M. Banks "Culture" universe (non-serial space opera novels that are must-read if modern space opera is your thang...)
Quick glossary:
GSV: General Service Vehicle (Human population in the millions, Culture citizens travel amongs the 1000's of worlds in their domain on these.)
GCU: General Contact Unit: (Also, lots of people, primary purpose, engage in contact with new non-culture civilizations)
ROU: Rapid Offensive Unit: (The Culture is peaceful, but sometimes the shit hits the fan. My namesake spends most of life killing time, unless something badass is coming down, in which case it's killing time.)

All of these classes of ships are piloted by super-intelligent AI Minds (capital "M")

I have often wondered what your namesake was, but never remembered to ask. Now I know, and it's a fairly badass namesake if I do say so myself... Although I bet a Jedi (oh, I mean a Jebi) could handle any mere piece of technology that comes his way.

Also, go team PAIN. No amount of genitalia slogans can stop the Woddler and his Wagon-puller.

Reading that pdf really turned me around 360. PAINGUIN hasn't gotten any weapon upgrades since last, and I think it's gonna take more than grenades and an AK47 to take out either of those other two. The ribcage-retract is definitely cool though.

I've been throwing votes at GatoRage, but I'm really starting to think Hellcat would take this. A half kilometer rocket powered pounce?! I mean that's just ridiculous. It's more or less flight power, making him the only one with deadly flight/ranged weapon combination. His swarm of flies could blind PAINGUIN while the Hell-fire blasts from his mouth could melt the rotting spider/unicorn flesh from underneath him. The steed is indestructible yes, but skin is skin. He'd be a walking ribcage after a Hellcat blast. PAINGUIN is easily the coolest of the 3, but IMO, the most vulnerable.

GatoRage has got brilliant madscientist brains and arcane alien intelligence workin for him, in addition to being able to blind PAINGUIN with ink. Extreme agility= not gonna get caught by a grenade. The croc and lion are pretty equally matched, so to me it comes down to if your one of those that really values intelligence over carnal/beastial mentality. He could maybe trick Hellcat somehow. Up close in melee he'd take some serious damage for sure but would stun/tear the lion apart in no time.

And we've all seen who really wins when lions and crocs fight:

That settles it. The wildebeest wins. Apparently PAINGUIN could just shoot the video.

Also, Norm, long-range leaps are useless. Since you can't alter course or trajectory, if your target moves, you miss. But you make a very predictable target yourself.

Yes, letting your enemies destroy each other is a time tested tactic. Go, Go, Team PAINGUIN.

The bird is the word, and he has a 41 point lead as of my last vote.

Don't mess with The Culture.

True, but since his long range leaps are rocket propelled, it seems likely to me that he could bank left/right and such forth.

Sorry, I was out of town for a couple days. Meh.
Hey Norm! Come on over to the HELLCAT side! Check this out!

A demon infested radioactive beast. I still find it hard to believe that is not as 'cool' as a bird with a gun. I mean, look at out glorious past. All the best beasts are radioactive!

It's not too late to change your vote to the RIGHT beast everyone! Read the stats, no buzzard should win!

Sorry to disagree, Moonowl, but Hellcat is lame. No style at all. And as for Gatorage, well he's obviously from Florida, so I have doubts about his fans ability to vote properly.

Y'know The Pussygater campaign is desperate when they have to employ ex-Kyrgystani intelligence services for their cut-rate FodoZhop "evidence".
Everyone knows that Painguins mate for life. For example, as any fool can see, Eliot Spitzer and Mark Sanford are not penguins.

Ehem. Actually they seem to be a bit more like Tiger Woods.

http://tuxxie.org/miscellany/faq.shtml#3.6
3.6 Do penguins mate for life?

Most avian species are monogamous. That is to say that when they do mate, they only mate with one other. That doesn't imply that during the next mating season they will mate with the same individual. However, some birds do mate for life. Penguins are more-or-less monogamous, but some species are known to seek extra-pair copulations, that is, have affairs. The whole idea of mating for life is a bit exaggerated.
Cheating asshole penguins!
