A month-long "Who Would Win?" Halloween Showdown!

Yes, as the new blog banner says, it's going to be a month-long "Who Would Win?" Halloween Showdown!

In case you don't already know, my "Who Would Win?" segments are my discussions of various parties pitted against each other, and I speculate on whom I think would win. This time, in the spirit of Halloween, I am trying a new format in which I pit 8 creatures in a bracket format to conclude with the final two on Halloween! So let's meet the contestants and their opponents for this first round!

First up is the Homicidal Chainsaw Maniac (HCM), who is what I just said he is: a crazed killer with a chainsaw! He is pitted against that vicious tiny terror, the Demon-Possessed Action Figure (DPAF)! Holy cow! It's the Saw vs. the Doll! It's sure to be a bloody fight!

Next is the classic battle for nerds everywhere! First up is the mysterious assassin, the Ninja! He skulks in dark corners to strike when the moment is right! He is pitted against the drunken ferocity of the Pirate! Despite his drunken stupor, he is still not one to trifle with! It's a clash of swords to finally settle the question that nerds have debated since the dawn of time! (okay, I'm exaggerating that just a bit...)

The third match pits the creepy Zombie against the savage Wolfman! The Zombie possesses an unstoppable will to consume brains, while the Wolfman is hell with fangs and claws! The fur and the corpse dust is sure to fly as the unstoppable bestial force battles the immovable undead object in this clash that is sure to be one for the ages!

And last, but certainly not least is the battle that will have you drooling! In this corner is the nocturnal terror, the Vampire! He vants to suck your blood! Bleh! Bleh! And in this corner is the monster of the courtroom, the Lawyer! Great galloping ghouls, this guy is probably the scariest one of all! It's the Fang vs the Summons, and the outcome is just too close to call!

Over the next few weeks, these monsters will fight to the finish until four are left standing. Then it's on to the semis when the Final Four will fight it out until two are left. Then come Halloween, our final two contestants will duel it out to see who is the scariest monster of all! So come one, come all! Make your bets and get ready to discuss and debate until the cows come home! The action begins later this week! Whoohoo!

So are you ready???? :-D
