Historical Figure & Inanimate Object Wrestaurant

A normal restaraunt, with one notable exception -- Patrons would be able to enjoy a wrestling match between two people dressed up in costumes.

For example, Abe Lincoln wrestling a man in a costume shaped like a celery stalk.

Restaraunt-goers would be presented with a card at their table that would allow them to check off which two characters they would prefer to see fight while their meal is prepared, along with their guess as to who will win the bout. Historical figures, TV personalities, food items, inanimate objects you name it. Some interesting match-ups might include:

Abe Lincoln vs. A Head Of Lettuce

Amelia Earhart vs. Fred Flintstone

Frankenstein vs. Stick of Butter

Dog vs. Elvis

The match would be short, perhaps only 5 minutes or so. First, the actors would engadge in a WWF-style insult match infront of a commentator, followed by the match itself. When the winner is declared, those who guessed the correct winner recieve a free dessert with their meal.

       Spelling: Restaurant; Wouldn't want folks to get the idea that sweet Aunt Betty was on the match card.

       [admin: renamed to Wrestaurant. I'm guessing the W is a pun on Wrestling.]

       Would they knock over tables? Would they sweat and reek of cumin?

       //reek of cumin?//   

       Reek of cumin? Why would they reek of cumin? Do wrestlers eat a lot of cumin? What's with the cumin? I don't get it. Cumin?

       If they did eat a lot of cumin, you would need to make sure that your date did too, or she might not want to come back. You should also eat a lot. There could be a red C by those menu items.

       Like the idea. I'd go for 'Wrestle-araunt', it makes the idea name a little more descriptive of the activity therein. Would I be allowed to throw food at the contestants?

Just to add to the listish element of the annos, I'd like to see a bout between Jamie Oliver and Clarissa Dixon-Wright.

       I like this idea, and once had it as an idea for movie remakes on this site... ie Shrek versus Godzilla etc. Called it "Dog's Dinners" if my memory is correct. Was said to be baked and so deleted it - boo hoo - but a + for your version {Bowie23]

       A friend of mine started a short-lived chair-wrestling craze here once. It was mildly amusing. I'd like to see something like it while I'm tucking into my nice blue steak. Maybe you could rope in drunk punters to wrestle said inanimate objects. As an aside, that friend now works for ASIO, so I can only assume that he's watching my every move. Hi Chris! (funny how things turn out, sometimes, huh?)
