Back, but not At It

We have returned! Our second whirlwind trip to South Carolina has ended, and we survived. Barely. By the skin of our teeth. Which is saying something, because normally I don't have any skin on my teeth. Unless I've bitten someone. The Cavebabble cast will return next week for Episode 40, during which I promise to say "actually" 1.5 million times.

Born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1989, this pink pugilist fights to the beat of his own drum. His conditioning is legendary. He never gives up. He always keeps going! It's the Energizer Bunny!

Weapons: Huge feet, drum mallets

Special Power: Lepus Leap- When trapped in a corner, the Energizer Bunny taps the power of a secondary battery source, temporarily giving him enough power to leap over the heads of opponents, and out of harm's way.

Mascot Smackdown: Buzz

This tiny pugilist began mastering the sweet science in 1979. He may be small, but he still has plenty of sting. It's Buzz, the Honey Nut Bee!

Weapons: Stinger

Special Power: Pseudo-Streaker- Although bees don't wear clothing, Buzz dons a shirt in order to appear naked from the waist down. Opponents avert their gazes, leaving them momentarily vulnerable to a quick sting.*

*Effective only on prudish opponents.
