The Epic Battle

I had a Geek Dad moment recently. My 3 year old daughter asked me if she could play with one of my Ninja Turtles I had on the shelf in order to “have a battle” with the Disney princesses…I shed a tear of pride at how awesome an idea that was. I may have encouraged the war with the inclusion of Moses and a few Pokemon. The Pokemon were decimated early and are not in the picture.

What you are seeing here is the remnants of the most epic of battles between greatest armies ever assembled.

 Team Princess Vs. Everyone Else 

 “Team Princess” consisted of Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Batgirl, Minnie Mouse, My Little Pony, and Donatello (Ninja Turtle) This team made sense as the ultimate force for good. Who better to augment the pure offensive power of the Little Mermaid than the strategic intelligence of the “brains” of the Ninja Turtles, Donatello? The combination of a My Little Pony and Batgirl proved to be a genius duo that has changed the role of mounted cavalry forever. Not sense since the Mongols rode out of the steppes has mounted warfare been so effective.

 The opposition was Team “Everyone not affiliated with Team Princess” which had random Ninja Turtle Villains, The Joker, Pokemon, and Moses. Moses was the surprise addition here. Who knew he would start batting for the bad guys? All those years of Egyptian oppression finally boiled over when he cast Minnie Mouse from atop the playground. He would get his comeuppance later when Ariel made a sacrificial dive to take out both Moses and The Joker in what I thought would be the climatic finish. However, the battle took a unexpected turn when My Little Pony needed to brush her hair and Team Princess forfeited at the brink of victory for the impromptu grooming session.
