World's Greatest Thinker Showdown Prelim!

Post by tuttle » Fri Jan 04, 2019 9:59 am

In order to get the bracket in tip top shape we need to axe two nominees. I was just going to do it myself, but I aim to please the people so I'll let you all decide. My only decision is that the battle shall take place between the three fictional nominees.

This is a three way battle. The nominee with the most votes stays to compete. The other two go. Vote for the nominee you'd like to see stay.

I would concur, only that if we consider Bullwinkle, then why not Mr. Peabody?Image

I voted for the doc, but when you think about it, he wasn't that smart. In Back to the future 2, he gets sent to 1885. However , in Back to the Future 3, Marty uses the hidden Delorean to rescue him. The fuel line gets ripped and they eventually use a locomotive to get up to 88 mph. However, does anyone but me realize that since Marty went back to 1885, there are now 2 Deloreans in that period and they could use one for spare parts?
