I hope you all enjoyed the presidential debate last night.
I certainly did. I actually found it quite medicinal –

As a person who has pretty low blood pressure, I used it as a sort of beta-blocker blocker.
Anyway, it got me thinking that we shouldn’t let the candidates have all the fun. In fact, I think it would be much more of a kick to see far more interesting “people” go after each other on topics that really matter.

What if Bella of Twilight and Hermione of the Potter Series faced off on vampires vs. werewolves?
How about Mr. Incredible vs. Superman arguing capes vs. no capes? And what the heck, throw in Edna Mode and Batman as moderators just to make it interesting.

We could have witches wrangle the pros and cons of poison apples vs. poppies…
Or Zeus and Jupiter brawl over who’s the Biggest, Baddest God with a bod.

And finally, Captain Underpants and Winnie the Pooh could debate what to wear (or not to wear) down there.

PROMPT: Here are a few folks who may have a bone to pick, so pick a pair and go!
Tonto vs. Robin

Dwarfs vs. Munchkins
Donald vs. Daffy

Peter Pan vs. Father Time

Alice vs. Dorothy
Gandalf vs. Dumbledore

And then there’s the battle of the Scrooges – Ebenezer vs. McDuck…
Don’t you wish politics could be this much fun?
