Homerism Regional 2nd Round: No. 1 Jet vs. No. 5 Eagle. We Vote, You Defy









=


That's right. I'm calling this one even before the vote. I defy you to decide otherwise. Might as well advance the bracket already.

Voting (not that it matters) is opening through the rest of the day. Voting is closed on this contest. The Jet won with 54 percent of the vote.

I think it's already been proven that large jets hate America. I don't see why they'd spare the proud eagle.

Upstate Underdog said...

I don't want to see the emo Eagle fans cry.

Upstate Underdog said...

also, the F-15 fighter jet is named after the eagle. therefore, the Eagle, bird not jet, gets my vote.

feep said...

Remember, a vote against the bald eagle is a vote against America.

The Pirate Sloth said...

The Eagle would fly itself into the engine of the jet, rendering the engine useless, thereby making the jet fall from the sky. Eagle sacrifices itself, but is survived by an uncaring female eagle thats burdened with 4 cheeping kids. Eagle will rise again to glory in the sky.

jets fund terrorism

I heard the Jets hate black people.

the great bambi said...

U-S-A! U-S-A! Stephen Colbert's eagle, Stephen, Jr., would defeat any jet as if it were a mindless, killing machine bear bent on destroying America

J.L. White said...

WAKE UP PEOPLE! DON'T YOU SEE, KSK WANTS YOU TO VOTE FOR THE EAGLE! THEY ARE MANIPULATING YOU INTO CHOOSING A FUCKING BIRD OVER A MULTI-TON FLYING BOMB!!! IF THE GAY MAFIA HAD THEIR WAY, ALL OF YOU WOULD VOTE FOR THE EAGLE, AND THEN......they would, uh, do......something.......bad?

Fuck it, vote for whatever you like.

SeanMcQ said...

Isn't JET the initials of Tom Brady's kid? (I think it's John Edward Thomas, right?) If so, we're picking an eagle against a little baby. The eagle will carry that kid home and feed him to his l'il eaglets. Eagle all the way.

the great bambi said...

...and that was the last they ever heard of j.l. white

Zamboni said...

The music of Jet vs. The music of the Eagles?

Hmmmmmm, tough decision. Both make me want to die.

westbrook is my anti-drug said...

A vote for the Eagle is a vote for America. Think about it. When 9/11 happened, they had pictures with an eagle crying, not a jet.

The choice is clear.

(although if the Eagle loses, there better be an accompanying Emo Eagles post)

Pemulis said...

Look man, I've had a rough day and I hate the fucking Eagles!

futuremrsrickankiel said...

An Emo Eagles haiku:

Lying on the ground,
Wings as broken as my soul --
Why'd you pick the Jet?

(to be read to accompanying bongo drums in some lame-ass coffee shop)

Upstate Underdog said...

i think it is safe to say that Bin laden votes for the Jets. Enough said.

Armchair Strong Safety said...

the jet pictured is a Falcon, and I just can't vote for a Falcon no matter how many Virginia Tech products they draft and subsequently get rid of.

J.L. White said...

I recommend that everyone vote for the eagle the eagle is a ferocious and merciless killing machine and the jet has no chance in winning because it is just an inanimate object all hail our supreme KSK overlords may they lead us to glory with their infinite wisdom and may their enemies be crushed under the weight of their gigantic penises and thank you for listening and no I was not coerced into writing this comment may you have a measty day and be full of smirre

Wormfather said...

Fuck the Eagles.

Wormfather said...

I see J.L. is settling in nicely to his new Communications Officer post.

Reminds me of the begining of the Iraq War..."We will crush the Americans" (Picture in picture of US Tanks Rolling down the streets of Bagdad)

Ah, the days.

While you may hate The Eagles you cannot resist the power of the Eagles of Death Metal.

This battle has already been fought. Bald eagle vs. C-130. Guess who won?

(Don't click if you are a pussy)

clueheywood said...

OK, a C-130 is a turboprop. Dammit. I just wanted to share the pictures.

Tracer Bullet said...

A few facts:

The impact of a 5 kg (12 pound) bird at 240 km/h (150 mph) equals that of a 1/2 ton (1000 pound) weight dropped from a height of 3 meters (10 feet).

Eagles can weigh up to 14 pounds.

The Federal Aviation Administration estimates bird strikes cost US aviation $600 million annually and has resulted in over 200 worldwide deaths since 1988.

Aircraft continue to be lost on a routine basis to birdstrikes. In the fall of 2006 the USAF lost a twin engine T-38 trainer to a bird strike (ducks) and in the October 2007 the US Navy lost a T-45 jet trainer in a collision with a bird.

In short, birds can fell jets and the Eagles will but a talon in the Jets' ass.

SeanMcQ said...

Tracer Bullet...I think you're ok here. A turboprop is a jet engine, too:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turboprop

The C-130's engines develop jet thrust, it's just rerouted to the drive shaft instead of out the back of the engine.

SeanMcQ said...

Sorry...I meant that response to clueheywood.

Get out of my peaceful cab Pemulis

Man Bear Pig said...

This one shouldn't even be close.

Westbrook IMA-D, can jets cry? Because that would be awesome.

SlideShow Bob said...

man i love Hotel California

TroubleHelix said...

Remember, only the Titans can beat the Jets. Only the titans.
remember... them

Happy Birthday Peyton Manning!

Oh, and fuck you Tom Brady.

westbrook is my anti-drug said...

Jets cry transmission fluid after the Eagle claws at its engine.

I don't even know if jets have transmission fluid, but a vote for the Eagle is a vote for America.

America... FUCK YEAH!

The Pirate Sloth said...

Damn you people, how could you let the J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS win.

Rigged.

westbrook is my anti-drug said...

The terrorists have won. Damn you all.

Damn you all. I shall now crawl into my glass case of emotion and sulk until 2017.

The jet victory just sets up a Bear vs. Jet Elite Eight matchup. And I'm all for thinking about a bear getting the chance to tear apart millions of dollars worth of flight technology.

Bear > Jet
