Help me settle a bet

My wife and I got into a heated argument earlier tonight. Vote in the poll and help me prove once and for all that I'm right and she's wrong.

Iguanas are only "cute" as a belt.

Doesn't matter who's right. You have the right to yell and show your fury. Then she has the right to expect you to suck it up and apologize.

Sucks being the guy.

You're either really right, or really wrong.

Haha, I was just thinking that. My jumping-to-conclusions conclusion is that it's a case of the latter. It's just more likely that the man picked the kickass lizard and the woman picked the fuzzy lil' bear.

Regardless, this is a win/win situation for him. If he says Koala and she says Iguana, he can show her this thread and be like, BAM I fucking told you so. If he's the one that said Iguana and she said Koala, she never has to know that this thread existed and he can continue to tell her that she's a dumb bitch.

Australian animals are not cute. They're just weird looking.

A Koala would win a fight between an Iguana and a Koala. AND they're cuter. Crap, I think I'm in love.

eh. An iguana wouldn't get into a fight with a koala. The iguana would just give it a supercilious look. They're good at that.

If the Koala is drunk, that may just be enough to set it off.

I didn't want to bias the poll by revealing which side I'm on, but since I'm now winning 46-6, I think I can say that like all right-thinking people, I understand that koalas are among the cutest animals in the world and iguanas are just sort of there. I mean, no offense to anyone who has a pet iguana, but they're not all that cute.

Plus, like Thor says, a koala could totally kick anyone's ass in a fight, and probably would just for the hell of it.

Leave it to a ninja to pick a fight with a defenseless, eucalyptus-eating stoned CUTE koala.

If a man states his opinion in the woods and no woman is around to hear it, is he still wrong?
