Nesquick vs. Trix
« on: June 08, 2005, 10:35:50 PM »
IC XC NIKA
The other day, I was drinking some Nesquick chocolate milk, and I had a question pop into my head.  Okay, Nesquick is represented by a bunny, and so is Trix.  Now, if these 2 fellow bunnies were put into a ring, who would be the one standing at the end of the match?
Makes you wonder ???
Any thoughts?

"Always bet on black!"  (Wesley Snipes, Passenger 57, if I'm not mistaken)  Therefore, the Nesquick chocolate bunny would win. 

Besides, how could the Trix bunny win?  He doesn't get to eat breakfast because Trix are for kids.  He should go for Wheaties, then maybe he'd have a fighting chance.

I must disagree.

The Trix rabbit has been able to achieve self-discipline through his repeated denial of eating the sugary cereal  he advertises.  This has made him the stronger rabbit.  The Nestquick bunny is soft.  Is WEAK!  HE WILL BE CRUSHED!!!

Perhaps the Trix bunny has all this bottled up anger from never getting the Trix and would let it explode all over that Nesquick character for a bunny beat-down.

WHAT?!  IS OUTRAGE!!!!!  Was there being bunnies having fighting in 19th-Century Russia?!  Well, perhaps there was being, but is beside point!

Erk, sorry.  Channelled Fr. Vasily there for a moment.

This is a deep question.  I'm still not certain though.  I'm thinking the Trix rabbit though.

But what if it's the same rabbit, except he does his Trix commercials in the winter and his Nesquik ones in the summer?  Hmmmmm.....

They are *not* the same bunny.

I can prove that the Trix bunny is tougher.

When I was a kid they had a call in vote where you could vote on whether the rabbit would finally get to get some trix. Of course overwhelmingly the vote was yes so there actually was a commercial--this had to be around 1988--where the rabbit sat down and actually ate a bowl finally. LOL

aw man, how can you eat Lucky Charms (They're magically delicious!) WITHOUT milk?? the whole point is that the marshmalllows make the milk different colors and sugary and soften them too - the marshmallows are basically little balls of solid sugar without milk, which taste disgusting to me, hence this is one cereal that is a "milk-only" cereal for me.

and by the by, the Lucky Charms leperechaun would demolish both rabbits combined. ;D

You state:

Sadly, we can't say this for Mike Tyson, who got rocked by an Irish man (ERIN GO BRA).
