Walken vs. Norris: Guest Star Edition #2 “Get a Room Already!”

You may or may not be familiar with Bear Grylls.  He’s the host of a television show “Man vs. Wild.”  The premise of the show is this man (Bear) is thrown into extraordinary wilderness experiences such as being stranded in the Sierra Nevada mountain range with nothing but the clothes on his back, the parachute he used to fall safely from the skies, and a knife.  Unlike Les Stroud of Survivorman, Bear is followed by a camera crew (Les is bad-ass and films his own stuff).  It has been alleged (proven at this point?) that Bear has occasionally received help from this crew and even spent a night here and there in hotels.
To be 100% frank, we at Walken vs. Norris don’t really have a problem with any of this.  Isn’t a big part of survival using the resources in front of (or in the case of a camera crew – behind) you?  If you didn’t leave home without it, why not use that Amex to get a room at the hotel, motel, Holiday Inn?
But the rooms at the Pines Resort hotel at Bass Lake are often booked this time of year.  If only one was available, with whom would you want to share?
Our Special Guest:  Bear Grylls:
While Bear may have horrible gas, brought on by his diet of bark, grubs, and the occasional raw cat-fish, I’m sure the BBC would pick-up the tab.  Plus, you’d have the added benefit of learning something new.  Wanna know the absolute DUMBEST way fjord a river?  What about how to NOT glissade (safely)?  Just ask Uncle Bear.
Crowd Favorite:  Christopher Walken
Do you like pina coladas?  And getting caught in the rain?  Do you like making love at midnight?  Well, if you opt to room with Walken, you better.  “The Continental” as they call him down at the Motel 6 (it’s not just a skit on SNL), is always up for a good time.  Sure, you may not get a lot of sleep, but the Chapagna will flow freely!
Security Specialist:  Chuck Norris
“In these troubled times” [DRINK!] you need to be more vigilant than ever.  While you may not think you have anything of significant value in your room, the criminals out there don’t know that.  What if they kick-in your door in the middle of the night?  What will you do?  If you opted to room with Bear Grylls, you know he’d just jump out the window.  And Walken, well he’d be busy watching one of his “bed-time stories.”  But if you’d opted to room with Chuck Norris, well, that’s a different story. Chuck Norris doesn’t get home-invaded – Chuck Norris does the invading.

Closed Polls & a New Page

Chuck Norris?  Christopher Walken?

Who did the public pick?

We’ve decided that polls will need to eventually close.  This way a winner can be determined.   Polls close 1 week (give or take) after being posted.  Original posts will be updated to display the results in some way.

To help archive the results, we’ve created a new page (see the main navigation bar) called Closed Polls.  This page lists the date, the question and the results of each poll that has closed.  It also contains a running tally of wins.

Feel free to leave comments on the Closed Polls page if you are outraged with a result, if you have recommendations on how to make it better,  or ideas for new polls.
