Raph...definately Raph...

Saturday, October 28, 2006 5:07 AM

Happy Birthday to Joseph Calhoon! Joseph mentions on his recent blog post that he was the recipient of a TMNT cake (if you don't know what TMNT is, you're either too young or too old). So this opens up the age old debate: Which is the greatest of the TMNT team?!

I'll give you a hint:

 

Oh yeah, Raph was DEFINATELY the best out of the group. Leo...pffft...reminds me of Cyclops from the X-Men movies: WUSSY with a Capital P. Michaelangelo...pffft...I swear that character was born after the orginal authors/artists watched Belushi in Animal House. Donatello...pffft...look at me, I have a BIG STICK...obviously overcompensating for something, if yaknowwhatImean.

But Raph...he had style, he had attitude, and he had short-range melee weapons that you required skill to use for any sort of real damage. Plus his name is the only one you can shorten that doesn't sound regular (seriously...Leo...Mike...if you had two heroes and you said "I'm calling them Leo and Mike" it woldn't resonate an "ooooo" factor with fans) or somewhat disturbing, like Don (You know who loves you, you big Edmontonion pretty boy you!).

So I hope Joseph that your cake featured the best of the TMNT team and that the other three were relegated to the plates and cupware used at the party.

I cannot believe you just tossed Leonardo to the side so casually. He is nothing like Cyclops who is indeed a wimp and an ego maniac.

Leonardo is everything a ninja should be. He's in total control of his emotions and his body. He's one of the best leaders of any team out there.

I'm shocked and appalled at what they must be teaching in the Canadian media. He had style? He had attitude? He had short-range melee weapons? These are your reasons for liking the hot-headed Raphael who ALWAYS got the ninja turtles in trouble requiring Leonardo to figure a way out of the ridiculous situation they never would have been in if Raphael would have just listened?

Man, if you had picked Donatello I could have seen that. He's a decent fallback ninja turtle to Leonardo, but Raphael?

What game are you playing here?

I don't think you can be too young for the turtles....my 5 year old nephew was a turtle for Halloween this year. Its funny how long that has stuck around. Its not quite up there with Scooby Doo...but...it could definitely kick Freds butt. 11/9/2006 2:07 PM | Lance
