Who would win between...



4 words i loved to hear as a child. It all probably began from buying top trumps but comparing is most definitely fun. One of my favourite ones was being asked at school, "Josh how do you think would win in a fight between Scooby Doo and Bagpuss" Now i think there are a large amount of factors involved e.g. has Scooby Doo had a scooby snack as that affects his performance, or do they both have their entourages?... anyways i guess thats up for debate at a later date...

What sparked off this thought pattern was reading a description of Richard I (i.e. the Lionheart) during my reading for my essay

Tall in stature, graceful in figure, King Richard has long straight limbs, his father's red-gold hair and startling blue-grey eyes. He is a fine horseman and swordsman, holding a commanding appearance. Bold, daring and dashing, he shines in war, loves pageantry and dressing-up in fine magnificent clothes.

This reminded me of a description of another King...

Rev 1 12-18
Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength. When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, "Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades

hmm.. if we factor in achievements i guess reconquering Acre seems rather small in comparison to defeating death itself... yikes old Lionheart never had a chance... i know who wins in my mind...

here's a video of some talking dogs just cause it amuses me so much (esp the last one)
