In September we crowned the humble Local Indian Restaurant as the World Champion of Everything. In the last five months we’ve had NINETEEN different World Cups or World Cup adjacent polls on this stupid forum. Can the Local Indian retain its crown against these new challengers?
We’ll have four groups of five with the top two going through to the semi finals on Thursday, starting with the first two groups today.
Local Indian Restaurant: winner of The World Cup of Everything
Columbo: winner of The World Cup of Detective Shows
Irn Bru: winner of The World Cup of Fizzy Drinks
Arcade Fire- Funeral: winner of The World Cup of 21st Century Albums
Budvar: winner of The World Cup of Beers & Ciders
- Local Indian Restaurant
- Irn Bru
- Arcade Fire - Funeral
Emblem of Mongolia: winner of The World Cup of Country Emblems
Cheddar Cheese: winner of The World Cup of Cheese
Ding Junhui: winner of The World Cup of Snooker Players
Crunchy Nut Cornflakes: winner of The World Cup of Cereals
- Emblem of Mongolia
- Cheddar cheese
- Ding Junhui
- Crunchy Nut Cornflake
- David Lynch
Can’t see past irn bru and local Indian to be honest
Same, anyone voting anything else has serious personal issues imo
Will the 2 music board world cup winners be included please?
Although by putting them in the same group have you destined them to meet in the semis?
what were they? Probably missed them tbf
Nah will do a random draw for the semis, there’s two more groups to come anyway. It’s all to play for
The Bad Seeds (backing groups world cup) and Radiohead (hgatr world cup)
Will pop em in tomorrow’s groups
Some may say this thread is already a shambles
I can’t believe you’re doing this again.
I’ve not got a lot on this week
If Gas Horse doesn’t take Group B then I’m packing mah bags.
I’m absolutely done by the opportunity to vote for David Lynch and Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, TBH. Although I am sorry for Mongolia’s loss but what a tough group.
Also LOL @ Arcade Fire even being in this list.
The local Indian is an undoubted, er, British, national treasure.
Would have voted for Irn-Bru ahead of Funeral but the latter is forever tainted for me by association with Owen “Judas” Coyle.
Alright, Mura Masa ft. Clairo.
I genuinely re-read the World Cup of Everything thread the other day. What a lovely time we all had.
Do you think this thread will be as fun? I’m predicting 56 replies and no beeves, I’ve just got a bad feeling about it
I think the “OUTTA NOWHERE!” approach makes the whole thing very unexpected and difficult to gauge.
I think the community will want to weigh in on the sort of issue of Ding vs The Emblem of Mongolia but it’s impossible to tell really.
Would you like to start some artificial beeves with me to kick things off?
