Transitional Tiara *BONUS GAME!*
FusionFistCutter - 4-8-2004 at 03:42 AM

Well, ModSquad has had to relinquish his reigh as the FFC Tiara Champion, which means his avatar is up for grabs. Since there is no PPV for another week, we shall have a transitional period where noone shall sit on the throne.

I know it's scary, but just remain calm.

If someone would like to lay claim to the Tiara for the next 10-11 odd days it is until WWE "PPV AFTER WRESTLEMANIA", then you may do so by answering the following question correctly. First one wins the prize.

During the 2004 NCAA Final Four, FFC somehow had extra money to blow on (somewhat) expensive import beer. Name that beer.

Just give me the prize on the basis that you all want the Naked Shawn Av of DOOM to go away, heehee.

Well stop the guesses, Endo nailed it on the second try. Jesus, that's impressive dude. I drink all those mentioned except for whatever Niles put down, I've never heard of that shit.

Anyways, Endo, you have to ditch Strongbad and go with the FFC Tiara as your avatar now until the next PPV, where a new contestant will (hopefully) win and want the goddamn avatar for a month.

Congratulations sir, you are a queen among lesser queens.

No one slipped in a derogatory Corona reference? Must be the holiday spirit.

What's in a name? that which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.

Mr. Lund I believe we are having a disagreement that bores to the very meaning of human communication. I do not type this as a direct refute of your logic, for it is indeed sound, but rather as a justification to my claim as Transitional FFC Tiara Champion.

The original question was to "Name that beer." Now the use of the word "name" in verb form carries many definitions, one being "to mention, specify, or cite by name," another being "to specify or fix." Now when using the first exampled definition I must concede defeat, for the proper name is indeed "Harp." However, since neither given definition is the primary definition of the verb form of "name," equal consideration must be given to the second given definition, in which case I am correct in my claim, despite your correct logic to the contrary.

The reason goes back to the quote from Mr. Shakespeare above. If I go to my favorite watering hole and request either "one Harp, please" or "one Harp's, please" I receive the same lager, despite having asked for two different items. Part of this is simple ignorance on the part of the average bartender and drinker, but another part is the dismissal of the correction as unnecessary and somewhat condescending. Of course, the end result is that I receive the tasty beverage I desire, despite the misnaming of said beverage, and thus the communication has been faultless in the reaching of my goal.

In a smiliar situation, I responded "Harp's" when polled by Mr. Cutter. While I was incorrect in my specific name for the tasty beverage, my communication was complete with Mr. Cutter. Although the lager he bought was indeed called "Harp," we were both thinking of the same lager and that thought was communicated. Whether it is called "Harp" or "Harp's," the taste, effect, and bottle are all identical. Thus, through good communication rather than spelling I managed to name the correct beer.

Of course, if the explanation above does not satisfy any of our readers, I also ofer an alternate explanation, one that we can all understand. As with any title, the authority of naming a champion rests soley with the authority issuing the title. In this case, the title is owned by Mr. Cutter and is his to distribute as he pleases. This is generally done through a contest involving Mr. Cutter's alcohol consumption. In this cfase, I gave an answer that was satisfactory to Mr. Cutter, and being the first to do so was crowned as his champion. In the same way that Vince McMahon can crown whomever he wants as the WWE Champoin, Mr. Cutter can crown whomever he pleases with his tiara.

And if neither of these arguments is satisfactory, I offer my third and final argument. Wait until another established champion has to vacate the throne and vie for the coveted title of Transitional FFC Tiara Champion.

Wow, such a heated argument over the Tiara, it really is becoming something that is coveted around here.

I'm sticking with Endo here Jeb, I'm more impressed with the fact he picked it on the second guess than I am disappointed with his grammar.

So the Tiara STAYS!! Remember kids, we're only 9 short days away from whatever the next PPV is, so your chance to be cool like ModSquad and Endo is near.
