Er, Delicious, if consumed. But something else if consummated.
Bo, you're sure that last snake is a garden snake?

If the Snake in the garden was metaphorical, then what was it a metaphor for, Strawman?

Not to mention it's a Garter snake.

Darnit I was hoping that was a picture of a hot chick with a snake garter belt.

And that's just ONE of his Snaketicles in action. Imagine all 8.

Too bad the cameraman didn't pan back farther so we could see all of Snaketopus.

Hmm - this is a good round! Kudos to the creators here.

I'm thinking it's gonna be between Luck-Bill and Snaketopus. Cricket Bat is gonna get trounced. He doesn't have much going for him except those pincers and the bat. Echo-location? Yippee. He'll be able to fly around and avoid getting his butt kicked until he gets tired. Eventually he's going to land, and Snaketopus will take him out, probably after Cricket trips over his own bat thanks to Luck-Bill. The octopus's beak is made to take out shellfish, and Cricket's carapace is going to be no match for that.

That leaves Snaketopus and Luck-Bill, and I'm kind of torn. Luck-Bill could theoretically cause a knot in Snaketopus's legs or something like that. Platypi have poisonous spurs on their legs, so he is probably packing venom, and he does have those claws... But still - Snaketopus is slippery, so he'll probably be able to untie himself relatively quickly. He also has those snaketicles that dissolve flesh. Now, if he does that through contact (exudes acid through the pores in said snaketicles) as opposed to through a duct and out the end of the snaketicle, the duck is dead. Even with snaketicles tied into knots, Snaketopus could still probably manage to touch Luck-Bill. Depending on what is dissolved when, the fight could be over fairly quickly.

Okay, Snaketopus it is! *casts vote*

Excellent breakdown, Shiny, and and even better choice in monsters. Welcome to the forums!

Well, you know, it's dangerous releasing these training videos into the world. You don't want to give away ALL your secrets, just give enough of a taste to strike fear into your opponents.

Yes, it is a terrible system of government (but the best one we've come up with so far.)

I like this guy (gal?). (I think he wrote an awesome twabble too...)

I wouldn't be so fast to say so. If everyone would just sit still and do as I say things would run much smoother.

I agree 110%. How else to explain Jessica Sanchez needing to be saved?

I googled Jessica Sanchez and now can feel my IQ is lower.

When I'm charge Simon Cowell will be the first against the wall.

Oh wow, thank you! I've been going through a bit of a creative dry spell, so that means a lot. And yeah, I'm a dudette.

Simon Cowell is long but you can still offer a blindfold to Steven Tyler. I shall now flagellate myself for admitting to this knowledge. American Idol will only be cool when Norm wins (singing Everybodys Got Nipples.)

I’m voting snaketopus here. Not much more to say that has not been said already...I’ve been away too long.
Thing is, at some point, the LBP will get careless confident in his victory, he may forget about that garden snake, creating an opportunity for Snaketopus to get the upperhand (er...tentacle)

....agreed Mikes, if the talent on Idols was as good as Norm, then I would feel it worth watching
