We had this topic of conversation brought up at work

Which do you think would win in a fight between:-
a) An Bull Elephant seal
b) An full adult male lion
c) A male silverback Gorilla

Now you have to look at the pro's and cons of each here

A gorilla has agilty on its side so it can dodge hit.
A bull elephant seal has thick skin and can turn it head nearly 180 degrees
A Lion is quick and has sharp teeth

Personally i think the bull elepahnt seal would win

What do you reckon?

Editied due to spelling mistakes
Fido... errr I mean elephant seal hands down obviously :lol:
Ah but i am looking at a equal footing here, and even elphant seals are dangerous on land!
Maybe they should be armed, or armoured. I think a lion could win as it's equipped with big scary claws and teeth. An elephant seal would be like fighting a toothed Jabba the Hutt. But the gorilla, with semi opposable thumbs could grab the lion's mane and smash it's head off stuff - or use a club...........christ I need a hobby!
Add Tarkus in there & it'd win by miles ;)
Bollox the gorilla wouldn't do that. Fido would crush all opposition having seen the footage of one crushing a car in nz there's no doubt in my mind.
Male lions have the sense to leave all that sort of things to the girls, except when they want a shag that is.
Heres one.."If the Thundercats had a ruck, who would win between Panthera and Liono??"

I spent fcuking hours of my life refereeing this sort of contest between the troops..."Sir, if you take the engine out of a Ford and out of a Vauxhall and put the Ford engine in the Vauxhall and the Vauxhall engine in the Ford is it true they both go faster sir??" "Probably, now dig in to Stage 2 Bombardier Scrote.."
How about Prof Stephen Hawking and a gang of methed-up chimpanzees. with knives.

To make it fair you could place an ingram on his lap and say that anytime he wants to stop bluffing his case for sympathy he can pick up the weapon and defend himself.

What would you do CC ?

Mince slowly away, mumbling "Leave me alone, you're all horrid" ?
Tellytubbies versus those Boobar things I do believe the handbagged one would put up a good show.

Fimbles versus the Tweenies hopefully a complete bloodbath with both sides killing each other.

Cuts v C_C ... I know who my money is on :lol:
How about Miss Hoolie and PC Plum versus Josie Jump and Archie the Inventor. Of course the pink be-kilted one would not be allowed to use his special inventing powers to create weapons suitable for destroying the forces of education and law and order. He would just have to get stuck in and he does look like a big lad. On the other hand Hoolie has a very sharp beak and chin...Plummie must have had some training at the SPC so, any comments?

Must get myself a hobby other than watching CeeBeebies with Roisin!!
