OK, How Many 5 Year Olds Could You Take In A Fight

How Many Five Year Olds Could You Take in a Fight?

I could take 16. Maybe more if I fought dirty.

"You could take on 30 five year old kids in a fight."

Look out ya little brats! I'll kick yer @ss!

Q: "....would you resort to biting and/or eye-gouging?"
A: Heck yeah! I didn't watch the 3 Stooges for nothing!

Q: "How would you feel about the fact that you're fighting a bunch of kids?"
A: "To hell with morality, I'd be too busy pile-driving, crane-kicking, and bare-knuckle bashing them all the way back to kintergarten." (See above answer)

Q: "....would you feel morally comfortable picking up a child and using him/her as a weapon to throw at other children?"
A: I think the last 2 answers give a clue! It's a bird. It's plane. No, it's a 5 year old!

BTW....Stay off my d*mn lawn!!!

I know the test severely overestimated my fighting abilities. I am a Mom, and I know from experience that getting just ONE active five-year-old to bed is enough to wear me out for the evening!

I'm ashamed to say 33. Ashamed because one three year old pretty much finishes me off but it takes about 14 hours to do it.

25 according to the score, but my sister is a Kindergarten teacher, so I bet she could take on at least 50!

This can't be right. I can take on 33 of them, maybe with fighting dirty. 33 is a fricking army! I'm not superman.

I volunteer for playground duty at my kid's preschool once in a while. Believe me, 3-4 is the max you could take. They can climb on you pretty quickly.

I'm disappointed. I thought this was going to be an action game, like tossing penguins.

34. I suspect that it is because they are not armed with bazookas.

My son does more unintentional damage to me in 2 hours with a 2lb metal truck than any soldier has ever done in a full days work with a bazooka.
