A blogging, reading, reviewing and tweeting powerhouse, Tam is a beloved Internet friend to many. She’s also a Canadian, which means that by default, she’s extremely nice, enjoys hockey, maple syrup, curling, ends most sentences with ‘eh?’ and rides a dog sled everywhere she goes. Tam’s arsenal includes a troop of hot, nearly naked men (from the pages of her M/M novels), a tube of foul-tasting Vegemite, and an army of sidewalk worms that will squirm at nothing to complete her every command.
Who will win in the battle of (far) North vs. South? Will Paula Deen defeat Tam with her powers of butter and cheese? Or will Tam smother Paula Deen in maple syrup and then let her worms and sled dogs finish her off? We’re putting this no-holds-barred fight to a vote. The poll will be open for approximately 24 hours, and you may vote as many times as you want. That’s right — we’re not blocking repeat votes, so vote now and vote often for your favorite Cocky & Rude Fight Club opponent.
Will this battle end with an “Eh?” or a “Ya’ll?” Find out Sunday at Noon!
