The Metrics

The Metrics

Have no use for feet.

The Metrics will measure up to be your worst nightmare.

The Metrics held the coveted title of Current Champ from Monday, January 28, 2008 to Tuesday, January 29, 2008, heartily vanquishing Sinister Swapper to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of The Approxi Mates.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Sutter .


Quotes overheard while standing in the crowd that gathered to watch the carnage…

  1. Oh my god this is beyond wonderful. The concept on its own is enough but the names push it over the edge, well done.

  4. This is so clever I'm having trouble thinking of words to praise it.

    None of them seem good enough for it.

    Turns "miles-per-hour" into "miles-per-cower."

  13. The Metrics? I wouldn't have been able to resist the urge to call them THE METRIX.

  14. L: That was my first instinct but I wanted to make sure people weren't confused and that they got the metaphorical vanquishing.

  15. I don't know how you come up with this stuff. One of the most creative vanquishes yet.

  16. The webpage should have a voting system that viewers should be able to vote for the winner of such battle. I personally don't think The Metrics would be able to defeat The Sinister Swapper. And, if the votes come in that the contender does not beat the champ, the artist should have to come up with a new idea while the champ remains. Just an idea!

  17. I'm from Portugal, so this joke doesn't tickle me the same way. For me there is only the metric system, long live the metric system!
    @ Dominatore: that would kill the spirit of the game!

  18. This is the first one that actually made me laugh. All the other ones made me smirk or just smile a little, but when this one clicked, you managed to squeeze a laugh out of me. Sutter, you are a genius.
