🌏 World Cup of Everything 2020: Groups A & B

Good morning

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.

GROUP A

Local Indian Restaurant: winner of The World Cup of Everything

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

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. :smiley:

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.

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?
