It still doesn't work. Bummer, because this site looks really cool.

Scientist: "I have combined the DNA of the world's most evil animals, to make the most evil creature of them all!"

Door opens, man emerges.

Man: "It turns out it's man."

Of big animals, I think hippos kill the most people. Sort of puts that whole Fantasia sequence in a whole new light, doesn't it?

We asked a collective of trollogists, flamestations, and mixed focus groups to decide once and for all a solution to a burning issue...

...In an all-out battle between a Flying MetaFilter and a Flying MetaTalk,
who would win?

We asked the Subterranean AskMetaFilter, but the poor thing ran away, wimpering.

Bah... This is just a watered down version of the Animal Kingdom Kumite.

Wow... I'm an internet nerd....

Hehe. The image has been changed, Grimgrin. This guy doesn't seem to understand the meaning of hotlinking. You would have hotlinked if you had posted the actual graphic here, but you didn't - you linked to it on his site. This guy is an...oh, what's the word?

the hippos are bad asses (they kill more people in africa than crocs and lions combined) and they're vegans. the site sounds like a copy of animal faceoff on discoverychannel.

Allright, click on "Animal Kingdom Kumite Revisited"

I once had a very strange dream like this.

Essentially, at the end of every universe's lifetime, there was usually one dominant organisim. After a few universe expansion/contractions, there was a contest held that pitted the dominant lifeform for each universe's existance against each other.

So you might have a hairy Ugl'ath from the Mighty Clan of U'rgh (resplendent in his battle-kilt) against a particularly virulant strain of, say, Ebola.

Like I said, strange dream.
