The Battle of the Blogs has begun!

LET’S GET READY TO RUUUUUMMMBBBLLE!!!  Or just debate- whatever.
But you…that’s right you, and you, and you, and you over there.  This is all about you.  So state your opinion (‘cause your opinion is the only one that matters), vote (‘cause every vote counts), and join in on the fun that is sure to rock the blogosphere.  It’s time ladies and gentlemen, the time you’ve all been waiting for!

Battle of the Blogs has begun!

Would you rather swim across a river that is filled with crocodiles
- OR -
spend the night on an island where man-eating tigers live?

(FYI:  Julie is in black print; Rachel is in blue print )

No brainer on this one!  I'd choose the crocodiles any day!  I don't like the idea of death staring me in the face and taunting me. Come at me from behind nice and quick like and be done with it already. 

You're kidding right?  Death by croc is about the creepiest thing for me... anything reptilian is NOT preferable to the furry kind.  I mean, it was Daniel and the MAMMALS den, not Daniel and the ALLIGATORS den.  *shudder* Girlie, I'd rather spend the night freaked out about tigers than about crocs...

That's just it though.  Tigers will taunt and tease and you just don't know what to expect from them.  They are all like I’m gonna get you girl, you just won’t know the time or place. But oh it’s coming. *licking lips*  There is no need to torture me mentally before my death...just get it over with already.

Not to mention what a sleepless night would do to me while I sat and tried to figure out exactly what the tiger was going to do and when he was going to do it.  My mind would go nuts thinking things like, if I look over here he will think I forgot about him and he will go behind the tree, then I will pretend to sleep and he will lick his chops while salivating over my deliciousness, then I will jump really high and scream like a wild banshee when he creeps over to that rock ready to pounce on me, and he’ll get freaked, and….

Julieeeee - those crocs are gonna think you're just as delicious!  And don't you know they can play mind games too?  They're sneaky and they can lurk underwater forever.  You can be all the way across that river and that last toe in the water is gonna do you in.  Then it’s that lovely little death roll spinny thing.
Maybe the part that I'm not getting is why you'd prefer a CERTAIN death, over a maybe one?  I mean... MAYBE I could get a bick stick and climb real high up a tree and beat any tigers as they approached?  Or start a fire or or or or...?  But swimming?  I'm just one big old piece of bait...

Actually, I think it's quite the opposite.  I think there is a possibility I could swim from one river bank to another and not make one crocodile take notice of me. ’ Cause I’m stealth like that.  But you are on an island with a man-eating tiger and chances are that tiger has not seen a human for a while.  And as the only human that the tiger has seen for quite some time you would look might tasty- even though you're little and skinny and have a dancer’s body and probably smell nice...not that I‘m into smelling women or anything.  And tigers climb trees...so yeah, no escape there.  But if there happened to be a tree in the river, I could definitely climb it to escape the jaws of a crocodile.

Don't you just love my crocodile purse? 

Alrighty Jules... don't you think it's fair to enlighten the troops that you're like the Michael Phelps of Texas chicks?  I mean, sure you'd rather go up against the crocs if you're just leaving them churning in your wake... but the rest of us are probably more like wild-eyed crippled caribou at the water's edge.
Come on folks... we'd have better odds against the kitties, right?  Julie Dundee can have the crocs.

(Yes Julie – we know you have mad editing skilz – but did you have to have that tiger biting my BUTT?)

And this is where we turn it over to you, our most loved readers!  Don't let those smiles fool ya', we are serious about our debate and will fight to the death to prove our point.  Your job is to vote on the topic at hand:

Would you rather swim across a river that is filled with crocodiles-OR-spend the night on an island where man-eating tigers live?

After you vote be sure to leave us the  reason behind your vote in the comments. Then hop over to Julie’s at Foursons and check out the comments and opinions over there! Votes are good at either or BOTH blogs :)  Julie and I will be comparing notes and adding votes -  and will get back to you on the winner of The Battle of the Blogs! (And no bribing is not beneath me.  Ahem.)

I'm with YOU and the tigers on this one. I can't even deal with the thought of potentially drowning if the croc didn't kill me immediately!
Should we only vote on ONE blog?

Rachel said...

Head on over to vote on both blogs - we'd love to get some good comment conversations going! :)

Of course it didn't help that while I was testing the voting thingamajig out, I accidentally voted for Julie, hee hee.

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

I am with you Rachel! I can't stand thinking about what lies beneath the water. I am terrified of lakes even!

City girl turned Country Girl said...

OH I totally have to go with Rachel on this one!! I do NOT want to be scared swimming and not seeing LOL!! I want to see the monster LOL!!

K said...

ha ha ha too funny

semicrunchymama said...

Toss me in with the tigers. At least it'll be relatively quick. And since I can't swim to save my life, I'd probably just drown while waiting for the crocs to get to me. Maybe with the tigers I'd be able to hide, somewhere, somehow.

Wow...I've put too much thought into this for 6am.

He & Me + 3 said...

Keep me out of the water where i will panic and probably drown & get eaten. Nope I will try and hide from the Tigers on the island. My feet are quicker than my back stroke. Thank you very much.

Foursons said...

Seriously??? No one knows how to swim???

MrsMann said...

Rach, am I supposed to vote and comment on both sites or would that defeat the purpose partially? Hmm. :)

Kmama said...

I'm with you and the Tigers. Alligators creep me out, and besides, more than likely I would die drowning when the alligators drag me under water.

Ruby Red Slippers said...

This is so funny!!!
{Can I pick Neither??!!}
fine-I will pick tigers-hoping they had a good meal before I arrived, and are now just sleepy!

Rachel said...

Hey y'all... you can try to vote twice on both blogs (unfortunately, the poll site recognized me when I tried to even out my accidental vote for Julie, LOL!) At least head on over to Julie's to read her comments - this is too fun! :)

Foursons said...

I'm reposting this over here-'cause well, I'm losing and I HATE to lose.

Seriously y'all- death by tiger would be slow and painful. They would toy with you and the suffering would be unmeasurable.

Case in point- Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy. The only reason he's still alive is because of immediate medical attention, but the suffering was long lasting.

Lauren said...

Tigers! I can't swim anyways so the crocs just really aren't a choice for me!

Shana said...

I went with the tigers. I guess I feel like there is only one enemy instead of 2 with the croc and the water.

Queen of Quite A Lot said...

I commented over at Julie's but will repeat my vote here: Tigers good; Crocs bad. (And not just the ugly shoes says the self-proclaimed shoe diva)

Momma Pixie said...

I have to agree with Rach on this one! Besides the thought of anything grabbing my toes while swimming freaks me out at least with a tiger I can see it comin'!

Emily said...

Tigers. No brainer...better chance of survival. If you're on an island, just go out into the water and the tigers will probably leave you alone. Cats don't like water.

chili pepper said...

Ha! Either way I end up with Jesus so who cares???

And I am not admitting to a food fight but we may have thrown a baked potato or two in our days:)

Liz @ Sugarplum Creations said...

I'm stopping by from Julie's. Sorry to say, I have to go with the tiger. I'm not a swimmer, so the tiger would be the least frightening to me.

Lisa said...

Okay, Julie is completely right on when she said "Doesn't anyone know how to swim?" Cause I don't! LOL Well, not really good enough to out-swim the crocs! Had to go with the tigers. Kind of like fighting off wild life, only on speed, and I have had some practice with that, so there fore my decision is tigers. And I am going to be lazy and copy and paste this exact same comment on both posts. Did I just admit that? LOL

GunDiva said...

Tigers, hands down. I don't want to drown and I don't want to be death rolled, thankyouverymuch.

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

I am going to have to take your side on this one, even though that croc purse is adorable! I think I have a better chance against a soft, furry cute tiger that a disgusting reptile of a croc. YUCK!

Honestly, since I have 3 kids, I don't even think one tiger would be a match for me... just ask my kids. ;0)

brian said...

I thought about this for a while, ladies, and I think I'll take my chances with the tiger. At least there's some slim chance I could evade the cat, whereas the water is full of crocs, according to the hypothetical.

Of course, gimme that .30-06 or AR-15 and I'll do both...are you with me Mr. D?
