You're challenged to a duel. Choose your weapon. [More:]Spelling bee.

And you're going down.
Portuguese spelling bee! YOU'RE going down.
(actually, Portuguese is a phonetic language and quite easy to spell. nevermind)

My actual weapon is stony silence. I have felled many an opponent with my wily dueling skills.

My weapons are puns. They inflict excruciating pain and are mentally disabling. You might say they're duel purpose and dual purpose.

I used to Fence.

You used to fence? I used to picket. I also chain linked a couple times.

All I have to do is spend five minutes reading aloud to you what I proofread every day. You will cry.

Y'all are dead meat now.

Usually, I go with a combination of tooth&claw or a sterling silver cheese grater in the Grand Baroque pattern.

But today, I am fighting all my fights with these cookies, made with brown butter and roughly chopped Valrhona dark chocolate.

My best weapon is a handgun. Maybe I should stick with my lesser weapons, like sarcasm and seeing the silly side.

notquitemaryann, I have never coveted a cheese grater until I saw that one. Want!

Crying. Alternately, alphabetizing. (And alliteration!)

Afternoon tea.

Mini amaretto whoopee pies and a nice complimentary flavored cuppa tea. This way, I can get to know you before I die.

And I won't even mind losing; it's just a ploy to sample baked goods.

That's a lovely alliteration.

Hey, I think I just won a duel with TrishaLynn!
