and the winner is…

On 2/22/2013 we asked you to play a game of Tug-of-War with us to once and for all determine which came first: the chicken or the egg.

And play along you did!

Thank you all for the great support and great responses. I think we will have to have another round of tug-of-war sooner rather than later. If you have questions you think would be good for future games you can leave them as a suggestion in the comments or host your own tug-of-war.

But, to business.

The Egg team quickly and efficiently came out strong, and while the Chicken team mounted a late charge, the egg team pulled the chicken team into the mud:

Not exactly what I'd call a mud bath.

Final tally:
Chicken team: IIIII I (6)
Egg team: IIIII IIII (9)
“42” team: I (1)

Plaudits abound to those who chose Eggs over Chickens.  Your victory will go down in the tomes of history for all time… or until the next game of tug-of-war depending on what you choose then and how the results turn up.

Go show the winning team some love:

Okay, okay, go show the chicken team some love too (we are all winners here):

And the 42 team (since 42 is the the answer to life, the universe, and everything):

Thanks again for playing!  Check back next week (probably) for the next installment in this new game that is taking the kingdom by storm.

    • It is a bit broad – seeing as how it covers life, the universe, and everything… while technically being right, we were looking for something a little more ‘granular.’

    • Haha!
      Oh wait…

      We here at The Matticus Kingdom support sportsmanship!

      (go team egg)

      So, please refrain from any excessive celebration or victory flaunting comments; as the chicken team put forth good effort and are worthy of our respect.

      (go team egg!)

      Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

      (Also, we are into subliminal messages – go team egg!)

    • I’d say a good time was had by all! Now we just have to come up with a suitable question for: “Tug-of-War – The Rematch! This time it gets serious.”

  1. To all those on both sides who didn’t write a post but wrote your comments here, or who wrote posts but for which there was no way to comment there: eggcelent work everybody – big up to the egg team!

    • Yes, thanks to everyone who participated! I tried to ensure the official counter got everyone’s support tallied correctly and I hope “we” didn’t miss anyone.
