Contest 48 Prize: March Madness

Runt82 and I have finished his prize for winning Caption Contest 48:

Apparently there is some sort of impending athletic competition coming up and some folks like Mark Shute and Runt82 have strong feelings on the matter. Not that these figures are in any way representative of popular, and copyrighted, college mascots or anything. No sir.

Thanks to Runt82 for working with me on this one, it was fun!

    Ah, hoisted by my own petard! (whatever a petard is) Very well Runt82, the gauntlet is thrown. I was having trouble deciding which ACC mascot would be next on my list. You’ve made the choice for me.


  2. Runt82 says:

    Ha ha.

    I had to make a pre-emptive strike knowing my school was going to get attacked eventually. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next time you win. But, at least you can say your team is in the NCAA tournament. We won’t even make the NIT.

    Not being from your hemisphere, can someone explain the joke?

    Do universities duke it out by genetically engineering giant turtles to send to battle against rennaissance recreationist swashbucklers? If so, how do I get involved?

    Those are just the mascots of two of the university teams that play each other quite a bit, Jack. One of them is the University of Virginia “Cavaliers” and the other is the University of Maryland “Terrapins” (turtles). They’re sort of super-hero versions of the standard school icons.

    That makes more sense, though I was getting a little excited at the idea of a mad-scientist giant-turtle fighting tournament.

    Imagine Pokemon as directed by George A. Romero.

    I know how you feel Jack. It would be much more entertaining.
