Question for Quiet Reflection

This is a variation on a theme.

Question: How many Catholic nuns could you fight off before being knocked out?

Please, consider.


  1. You have received some training in the martial arts.
  2. You are in an enclosed space the size of a small church hall.
  3. No holds barred. Anything goes. Eye jabs, Vulcan Grips, anything. But no weapons (except use of the odd hymn book that may be lying around).
  4. All the nuns are over 60 and so don't have real teeth with which to bite back. But their power is in their numbers. There are swarms of them, and they are angry. (And no, they don't have guns)

As I'm not too fit, I personally don't expect to mash my way through too many. But I’m a heavy man, so a simple belly flop ought to finish off a few, so I say 15, tops.

And if I'm not mistaken, that photo only represents about 10% of the number awaiting an Islamic martyr... {g}

Given the rules I can say that I'd probably be able to beat up 12-16 depending on what position in the hall I took.

I think the best bet would be to post up against a wall and just start kicking them all repeatedly as they approach. I also see some Three Stooges-like head smashing in their future, so effectively I could support myself with the heads of two nuns that are being slammed together while lifting my legs to power kick all the ones coming at me.

But anyone who has ever seen a zombie movie (and yes, 60+ year old nuns are comparable to zombies) knows that eventually they'll take you down and eat your brains. The sheer volume becomes too much to deal with no matter how ridiculously slow they are moving.

I've got a sneak attack planned. I would run past the nuns and reveal the blessed sacrament. When they all bow down in adoration, I'd give em all kicks to the rear, ensuring a victory. I'm fairly sure I could clear 15-20 nuns before they wised up.

I've been giggling about your comment for hours, Nick!

But Josh thinks he can clean out 15-20 nuns!!

Yeah, right!

They'd beat your scrawny little butt into pulp before you got through 3, blessed sacrament or not!
