More fish!

And End of the Work Week Wisdom!

Me: Who would win in a fight? Red fish or blue fish?
Jerome: Neither, they'd just hang out on opposite sides of a canyon and spy on each other.
Nick: And by some twist of fate, red fish and blue fish will have to join forces to fight the greater good like in the '80's cartoon cliche; i.e. GI Joe and Cobra wamping up on a bigger bad guy. Personally I would be worried about one fish and two fish joining forces. That would have red and blue out numbered.
--Conversation + LJ = madness

So I suppose you'll be wanting an explanation. :)

Well, I mentioned making my crocheted red fish and blue fish the other day. When I got home from work on Wednesday, I was feeling really cruddy. So I basically laid on the couch for a while, which somehow turned into Jerome and I playing "who would win in a fight?" This is a silly game where you come up with two (usually fictional) characters and ask which one would defeat the other. I used to run these on my LJ on a weekly basis, but stopped after a while.

Eventually, I was just being silly, and posed the Red Fish vs. Blue Fish question. Jerome IMMEDIATELY responded with his clever little response (which references Red vs. Blue, in case you don't get it). After I posted it to my LJ, Nick chimed in with his response.

And he's right. Watch out for the team of one fish + two fish...

(I also have to take this moment to express my love of the interwebz. Nick is in Iowa, and yet we can still talk to him, at least virtually speaking. Now if only I could convince the rest of my Carbondale friends to get on LJ more often, it would be like we never left... except for that whole part about us being in a much nicer place now. :) )

Okay.... but what if Fox in Socks and Sam I am joined in on one side or the other? Hmmm? I guess we'll always have to wonder, won't we?

Sam I Am is the supreme force in the Dr. Seuss universe, at least in my eyes. So if he gets involved, it's all over for the other side. :)

Travis says Cat in the hat would kick all their a@@es. Sounds like a challenge to me.

I wish I could remember what Sam I Am looks like, because then I would crochet him and Fox in Socks and the Cat in the Hat (I've made the hat before), and it could be a whole Dr. Seuss smackdown set. :)

I'll loan you Green Eggs and Ham. I'd even buy the yarn. Heck, I might even buy the whole set!
