Butterfly wings
Luke wants I should mention that the Robot Aliens beat the Pirate Elves, 24-20. I'm pleased the Pirate Elves did so well. At first, I thought that there was a big "sentiment" vote going on there, and that's why the Pirate Elves did so well against what seems like an unbeatable foe, but then I thought about it a little more analytically.

Obviously, it's all very subjective. I mean if, like Luke, you see Pirates as all drunk and stupid, and Elves as Keeblers, and Robot Aliens as The Alien meets Agent Smith, then of course you wouldn't think that Pirate Elves stand a chance.

But if you see Pirate Elves as Jack Sparrow meets Legolas, or even Capt. Blood meets Gen. Lafayette meets Killing Frost or Arawn Prince of Anwyn, and robot aliens as R2D2, or maybe as a Dalek (which is a bona fide Robot Alien, right there)...



...then you can see where Pirate Elves would stand a chance. Hell, if a renegade Time Lord could beat a Dalek, then Capt. Jack Killing Frost Legolas of the Woodland Realm but you can call me Capt. Blood, well. It's a different story, innit?

Or, as the Doctor says, at the top of a flight of stairs, "If you're supposed to be the superior race of the universe, why don't you try climbing after us?"

"Capt. Jack Killing Frost Legolas of the Woodland Realm"

You *need* to post a spit-take warning when posting these things, girlie!

Noted. :)

It's a pretty hot concept, isn't it?

See????

It all depends on your imagination. Maybe next time we should include illustrations of the battling hordes.

even in imaginary land of pirate elves and robot aliens there are many shades of gray.

what about the best case for both? jack sparrow-legolas vs. terminator-aliens? that would be the ultimate cage match, IMHO.

because even when you max out both groups, the T-1000-esque bot would not be cut up by the arrows or swords of pirate elves.

Please to remember, T-1000 is not an alien.
