This vs. That: Pooh vs. Tigger

I know you've all been dying of anticipation on this one, so without adieu, on to the results:

Total votes: 20

Pooh: 12 votes; 60%
Tigger: 7 votes; 35%
Impossible to choose: 1 vote; 5%

That said, 4 of you who voted would rather have voted for Eeyore (20%); 2 of you mentioned Piglet (10%), and 1 person mentioned Owl (5%). Poor Rabbit didn't even get a pity mention. (Kanga and Roo have each other, so I don't worry as much about them.)

This round, I gave my vote to Pooh. Perhaps like Amy, I'm surrounded by so much Tigger, that the calm of Pooh sounded VERY attractive. Tiddely pom indeed!

On a side-note, I find it fascinating to learn everyone's favorite character. It's so telling! If you care to indulge us, I'd love to hear which one is your favorite and why.

My favorite has always been Roo. He's the combination of the sense of adventure of Tigger, the wonder of Winnie the Pooh, and the common sense of Christopher Robin. (In my humble opinion, of course. And wow, I wasn't even trying for the alliteration!)

Anyhoo, on to the next debate:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

vs.

Sugar Cookies
(Ahem. You may have recently read about my Kryptonite)

I just always liked Pooh. I think it was his name. Yes, I'm very mature.

Chocolate Chip!!!!

Suzanne Warr said...

Me, I always loved Owl and really sympathized with Rabbit...but Tigger is my favorite. But, then, you could probably guess that from my query in Agent Inbox! lol I do think Tigger would be hard to live with, unless it was in college.

Chocolate chip cookies, of course! But some days, only Snickerdoodles will do. ;)

Good luck with your entry!!!

Okay, this is not a contest. It's Chocolate Chip - Anything with chocolate automatically wins :)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I've always loved Eeyore. There's something about him. I don't know. You can't help but feel bad for him.

Okay, I love chocolate, but I love sugar cookies. It all depends on how fresh they are. Face it, I love most kinds of cookies. :D

Lynn said...

I do love Roo too. His wisdom to see the whole picture is enduring! And definitely Chocolate Chip!

Angela Felsted said...

So sad. I love Tigger. Call me old fashioned, but I'm voting for the chocolate chip.

Melissa Sarno said...

You can't be serious! Chocolate chip! Anyone who says sugar cookie is craaaazy. ;)

Tony Van Helsing said...

I'm somewht late to this party but my vote is for Tigger. That is, I assume you are voting for who would win in a fight.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

No contest! Chocolate chip all the way! (Although my absolute favorite cookie is oatmeal raisin - not a choice today :))

Kamille Elahi said...

Is a sugar cookie, a choc chip cookie but without the choc chips?

Jen Chandler said...

Hi Janet!

I've always loved Eeyore. He's a bit depressing at first blush, but I think he's just insecure and needs some encouragement from friends. I feel that way many days (though I hope I'm not depressing...and I do try to keep tabs on my tail!)

Hmmm, as for the new poll? I'm going to say chocolate chip but ONLY if they're gooey and NOT crunchy :)

Happy Monday!
Jen

So, I missed this one, but I LOVE Eeyore. He is so cute and pessimistic, I find it adorable. Although if he were a real-life person, I probably would not find it so endearing. :)
As for this time... I gotta say sugar cookies. I just cannot describe my love for sugar cookies. :)

R. Garrett Wilson said...

I'm going to have to go with Jen on this one: "...chocolate chip but ONLY if they're gooey and NOT crunchy."

However, in reality, my favorite is my wife's peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. They are so good that people with peanut allergies will risk their lives to have them. And no, I’m not allow to disclose her recipe.

Susan Barclay said...

Chocolate chip! dI'm with Joanne - anything with chocolate automatically wins!

Abby said...

Oh my goodness! I don't know if I can possibly choose! But... I will try. Hmmm... thinking....it really depends on how they're made. There are good and bad recipes of both! I'm going to vote for sugar cookies, but this is really a toss up!

AND - I will do a post this week on how to do a survey box on your blog! :)

Elizabeth Mueller said...

Ooh, the photo of the cookies made me salivate! And the word chocolate chip and sugar just hurled me over the edge...

I think every character is just adorable. XD

First, you never said we could vote "impossible to choose"!

And chocolate chip. Every time. ;p <3

Stacy S. Jensen said...

I'm a chocolate nut. I love chocolate chip cookies.

Connie Arnold said...

Sorry I missed the last one, Janet. I'd have gone with Pooh. My daughter loved him, and we had to read every book we could find with him. I have to vote for the chocolate chip cookies. I'm not supposed to eat either of them, but they look wonderful!

Vicki Rocho said...

CHOCOLATE CHIP all the way!!!!

The Golden Eagle said...

I would say Eeyore, actually. :)

Sugar cookies. Because I can't remember the last time I had one . . .

Beth said...

If I had to pick a favorite, I'd probably choose Piglet. And I'd always go for chocolate chip cookies!

Theresa Milstein said...

Sugar cookies. Chocolate chips bug me.

Emily V. said...

I wasn't really able to come to a decision with Poo vs. Tigger but this one's easy! Chocolate Chip all the way! :)

WritingNut said...

Hehe.. I'm a fan of Eeyore too, but I do love Pooh :)

Ohhhh.. what a choice!!!!... Ummmm... gosh, I'm so indecisive.. it really depends on the weather/holiday and the mood I'm in... but I guess if I HAD to pick... chocolate chip!

Aye, that had to be the most long winded answer ever!

Carolyn V said...

I'm with the chocolate chips too. Mmmm. So so good!

Lynda R Young said...

Yep, chocolate chip cookies. The only thing better than choc chip is adding a coating of chocolate as well ;)

Maeve Frazier said...

Pooh and Sugar Cookies!

Anita Grace Howard said...

Totally chocolate chip, all the way! And poor grumpy Mr. Rabbit. I'll vote for him just so he won't get left out in the cold. :)

Kelley Vitollo said...

Chocolate chip... hands down :)

Christina Lee said...

Piglet all the way!!! Of course, Chocolate chip--I'm gonna guess they will win by a landslide!

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

Eeyore makes me laugh--always has.
As for the cookies, my vote goes to chocolate chip. Addictive.

E.R. King said...

Chocolate chip all the way, but only because it's chocolate. I mean, come on! Oh, but are the sugar cookies iced? If they're iced with butter cream frosting I change my vote.
I'm so excited for Christmas cookies! : )

A.L. Sonnichsen said...

This is a no-brainer. Chocolate chip, of course! :)

I'm glad we can be Pooh-friends, Janet!

Slamdunk said...

I had to go back and read this one.

I am fighting a losing battle, but Sugar cookies are all that around here.

Margo Berendsen said...

Come on, chocolate chip cookies are basically sugar cookies with two extra ingredients: brown sugar and chocolate chips! So they are CLEARLY superior!!!

now sugar cookies with thick cream cheese frosting and sprinkles - that evens it ups!

CherylK said...

Chocolate Chip...crispy ones. Dunkable. Except at Christmas. Then it's Sugar Cookies all the way!
