The LAMB Action Hero: WINNER!

Warning: The following results, for whatever reason (purposeful or coincidental), have come off with some major innuendo.


In what is a record finishing time for a LAMB Versus Event (though… that’s not really tough, since there’s only been one other one, and it had lasted forever), The LAMB Action Hero has come to a close.

This final round, while it didn’t have the 41 votes for when Sirens ended, it did have a good 37 (Clerks reference not intended). And the winner won by a landslide!

So here it is, the moment we’ve all been waiting for:

The winner of The LAMB Action Hero is…

Tomb Raider‘s Lara Croft!

A busty action hero indeed, Lara Croft began her life in video games before spawning two movies starring Angelina Jolie as the titular character (…sorry, I really couldn’t resist). So she goes around, oftentimes followed by her butler and geek-mate, kicking butt and discovering ancient relics/artifacts.

For the fully completed Versus Bracket, check below (click to enlarge):

For those curious to the votes, it was Lara Croft at 26 and Tony Stark at 11. Lara’s total voting score for the entire event was… I kid you not… 69.

So congrats to Jessica from Insight Into Entertainment for writing all the winning arguments (though in a male-dominated community, I’m not exactly sure it was the essays that had the guys voting… but still, congrats all the same). Also, congrats to Fletch, who yet again came in second place.

As always, congrats to everybody who feels like they should be congratulated, and now for the winning prize…

Here you go, Jess… have a button:

    “I’m not exactly sure it was the essays that had the guys voting”

    Amen! Note to self: for next event, regardless of topic, find the sexiest female and choose her. 😉

    Also, Jess and her brigade of lady email voters were a force I could not overcome.

    But seriously, congrats, Jess, and thanks again to Nick for being our fabulous emcee.

    It’s official: if you go up against me in the first round, you will sweep the whole event. This makes the second time.

    Congrats Jess!
