Okay, ordinarily I'm a pretty peaceful person. But come on, aren't there some folks you'd just love to see put in a head-lock, spun around and pimp-slapped a couple of times? Nothing beats a good, old fashion thrashing. Well, the following is a list of "no holds barred' wrestling matches I'd love to see.

1) ROSIE O'DONNEL vs DONALD TRUMP (I'm fairly sure Rosie would aim first for the hair and the Don would go for the gut)

2) KIM BASINGER vs ALEC BALDWIN (I'm guessing lots of name-calling, hissing and spitting would go on here)

3) ANN COULTER vs ELIZABETH EDWARDS (Oh, if only to see AC get both the dark glasses and the smirk smacked off her face)

4) OJ SIMPSON vs DENISE BROWN & FRED GOLDMAN (This would, no doubt, earn a "fight of the century" billing)

5) BARBARA WALTERS vs STAR JONES (In the event of any wig/weave-snatching or clothes ripping, spectators would be strongly advised to shield their eyes)

6) MONICA LEWINSKY vs LINDA TRIPP (I'm sure there's still plenty of bad blood between these two . . . if not one really nasty dress)

7) NAOMI CAMPBELL vs ALL OF HER FORMER ASSISTANTS (First we'd have to ban from the ring any objects which could possibly be hurled)

8) RUDY GIULIANI vs DENNIS KUCINICH (Lots of rabbit punches and low blows)

9) T.O. vs DONAVON MCNABB (Don't blame me, this was my son's contribution)

10) SIMON COWELL vs PAULA ABDUL (Doesn't Simon looks like the type who'd fight a girl?)

11) COLIN POWELL vs DICK CHENEY (Are we ready to rumble?! Or possibly find those weapons of mass destruction?)

12) DIANA ROSS vs MARY WILSON (Talk about an old grudge! These two really do need to let it go or else duke it out once and for all)

13) PUTIN vs BUSH (I can see it now--Putin straight gangsta walking (Three 6 Mafia style) around the ring and Bush doing his usual imitation of Festus (of Gunsmoke fame). Pretty scary stuff, huh? But it sure beats the possible alternative.

Would you pay for a ringside seat at any of these? What other knock-down, drag-outs might you want to see?

What a fun list idea! I will have to borrow it sometime. Happy TT :)

Samantha_K said...

3 and 5? Most definitely the ones I'd like to see.
All of them would be entertaining, but I'm particularly fond of 3 and 5. Great list!
Happy TT!

Candy Minx said...

Very good idea for a list and super entertaining and funny.

Therewas an old music video by Frankie Goes To Hollywood that had a "conflict resolution" idea instead of war...putting Gorb and Reagan into a boxing ring...this would work well for those celebrity feuds...

Here is my TT list:

Lori said...

Id pay to see a few of those...especially #1. Rosie would kick his ass!!! Happy TT. Great list.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I love them all. What a great sense of humor you have. I'd love to attend every last one of these. Bwahahahah. Have a great TT. :)

SJ Reidhead said...

You get kudos for creativity, that's for sure!

The Pink Flamingo

ellen b. said...

#10 is the only one that really scares me...
happy tt

Nicholas said...

What an original idea for a TT!

Malcolm: said...

I'd pay to see all of these! Some other ones that I'd like to see are:

Bill Belichick and Eric Mangini (your son can probably relate).

Bill O'Reilly and Al Franken

and although they are both dead, a smackdown between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford would be a must-see.

Hey Lori,

These are some excellent matches. I heard a couple of months ago that Star and Barbara had lunch, so things are on the mend as facilitated by Whoopi. Simon is the type that would beat Paula down. Happy TT.

Greatfullivin said...

What a great list! I would love to see any or all of them. Very creative!

Sandy Carlson said...

This would make for quite a season on TV if it ever happened! Imagine the advertising dollars. We would be able to show in real time how slowly grudges die!

Anonymous said...

I love this... it's so original and creative.

Can I add one more? How about Barry Bonds and Bud Selig?

Thanks for the laughs!!

Shesawriter said...

I'd pay to see Ross and Wilson! :-) What a cat fight that would be.

Happy TT!

My Thursday Thirteen: 13 of the sexiest and/or most romantic love scene clips on film

Natalie said...

I'd definitely pay to see some of those fights! LOL!

My T13 post is up, come check it out if you get a chance. :)

pussreboots said...

No. I'd rather hold on to my cash than watch any of these wrestling matches. Happy TT.

*Rae* said...

Great list those were all hilarious Happy Holidays & Happy TT-

damozel said...

I'd pay to see 1. I bet Rosie could take him.

13 would be a good way to resolve disputes. I think we should make the leaders fight it out through a game of chess or handbags at dawn or something. The Flatland Almanack --Damozel

Xakara said...

#3 would get my money easily!

I don't follow enough celebrity fueds to contribute my own, but anyone smacking Ann Coulter is a must see.


Bloggers said...

those would be awesome to see!

Michelle Davis Petelinz said...

I'm with Malcolm--Bill Belichick and Eric Mangini would be a good one...oh! wait! We'll see that on the field this weekend!
Go Patriots!
Great TT list, Lori!
Happy TT.

Holly said...

OH GOSH! Have to admit I wish Rosie and Donald would just have a go with it!


Happy TT-13!



Lori's Light Extemporanea said...

Okay! Well, that was certainly interesting! Now I'll be pondering possible match-ups for the rest of the day.

Happy Thursday!
Lori also

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

too bad there's no more Celebrity DeathMatch on MTV or we could see these play out in ... real, live... claymation. *grin*

Hey, I'd watch!

Janet said...

Powell would kick Cheney's ass! As long as Cheney didn't accidently shoot him...
