The Argonath versus the Statue of Liberty and the Egyptian Sphinx Can't Post

Which mysteriously animated colossi win?

******************************************

I met a Balrog on the stair.
He had some wings that weren't there.
They weren't there again today.
I wish he would just fly away.

It's got to be the Argonath. [In reply to] Can't Post

After all, they have weapons.

(And the Sphinx could be distracted by a catnip toy.)

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Depends... [In reply to] Can't Post

Do they have to answer the sphinx's riddle, or are they just bashing each other like cave trolls?

Argonath! Conflictus terminus!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Would not Isildur and Anarion use the old Surround and Axe-hack Gondorian offensive , as the Sphinx has lost her nose for catnip, and the Statute of Liberty has not yet been enacted?

Seems as if the Argonath have lost. Frown
