A New Year, A New Boss

With December fast approaching, I thought I would open up the lines for suggested seeds for Who's Da Boss 2009. As stated countless times before, you can suggest either individual seed or starting matches. When making suggestions, please keep in mind the following guidelines:

- do not be disappointed if your seed doesn't make it to the final list. I have a significant number already chosen, but I'm more than willing to pull some of my own seeds in favour of really great ones from the Who's The Boss community.

- do not suggest previously-used seeds. They had their chance, and now they're gone. I will be checking the final list with amazon_ww to ensure that I have made no doubled-up errors myself.

- do not suggest seeds that are too obscure. I consider myself to be pretty pop-culture savvy and if I don't have a clue who or what you're referring too, even if you include a Wikipedia article, most likely it won't be making it into the competition this year.

Otherwise, get out there and get recruiting. I'd like to see lots of new faces when Who's Da Boss 2009 comes screaming into this world January 1st.

Now I will be fully embarrassed if I suggest something that has already been in.

Any Hanna-Barbera cartoon character not already feautred

Art Garfunkel
Henry Kissinger
Jonathan Safran Foer (can totally kick ass)
J.D. Salinger
Jiang Qing

She's probably already on your list: Sarah Palin

Hank Paulson vs. The Credit Crunch

Carmen Sandiego = pure awesome

The Samurai Cats...did they deliver pizza? Because I clearly remember watching this amazingly hilarious cartoon where samurai cats delivered pizza and saved the world.

Lactose Intolerance vs. that thing where you can't eat wheat germ or whatever, you know, the one where everyone thinks you're really annoying because of your dietary restrictions.

I've basically lost touch with pop culture and Jai'me vs. World Vision probably wouldn't have any relevance to people outside of Australia.

Joe Biden vs. Joe The Plumber

Astroboy vs. Marvin the Martian

Starbucks vs. Starbuck

Animaniacs vs. Tiny Toons

James Franco vs. Seth Rogen (fight courtesy of me having watched Pineapple Express last week)

Bender vs. Data

Homer Simpson vs. Peter Griffin

Edward Scissorhands vs. Thomas the Tank Engine

I am pretty sure Astroboy, Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin, Bender, and Thomas the Tank Engine are all old seeds.

I could be wrong but I know at least two of those are.

You're right, I should have consulted that list I keep on me at all times of 4 years worth of WDB seeds.
Nov. 30th, 2008 12:45 am (UTC)
At least you recognize your mistake!

I <3 Animaniacs vs. Tiny Toons

oooh the bloodshed
Nov. 29th, 2008 04:16 am (UTC)
I suggested a ton months ago, actually. Actually had 3 posts about it. Here's some copy paste magic.

"Rockband 2 " vs "The Band" for putting musical legends vs pop culture's video games.

http://invention.smithsonian.org/centerpieces/electricguitar/images/04-03_full.jpg] vs Warlock guitars. Because those are amazing shapes for guitars. [INTERJECTION: I forget what they're called. Gibson Explorer? Fender Jaguar? I can never keep guitar names straight, except for Warlocks.]

Ironhide Tom (the single issue free comic book no one read and every one missed out on)

Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet = pretty awesome)

The Fungus That Lives Under Michigan Forest (and is currently the largest organism IN THE WORLD)

An unusually large biology textbook.

That One Sung That Gets Stuck In Your Head For Days




Chuck Schuldiner vs Death Metal
(This is a good fight because without death metal, Chuck Schuldiner just would've been a dude who died of cancer. Likewise, without Chuck, Death Metal wouldn't be around. *Seriously.*)

Dilbert vs The Pointy Haired Boss

The Brotherhood of Steel vs The Brotherhood of Mutants (comic book vs classic gamer nerd fight!) [ or maybe "FallOut" vs "Fallout Boy." Just for the sole purpose of getting to use automatic plasma weaponry and nuclear warheads on emo music. Bonus points if using FO1 or FO2 logos instead of FO3.]

Larry Page vs Sergey Brin (founders of Google)

Snorri Sturluson vs Homer (not the Simpson, writer of Iliad etc.)

Rosa Parks vs Cleopatra

Socrates vs The Canadian [or any other country's] Public Education System

Abu al-Qasim Khalaf ibn al-Abbas Al-Zahrawi vs I (Longest name I know is possible vs the shortest name possible. Plus, Abu etc. invented SURGERY)

Blue Footed Boobies vs Boobies
(Breasts needs to come back in some form)

Posers vs Hosers

Antarctica vs Madagascar

Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition vs Hockey

I could do more.
