The Votes Is In

Grand Moff Tarkin: 54 (29%)
The Cat In The Hat: 130 (70%)

So that be a solid win fer the fedora'd feline. Yay on him.

NO ONE screws with Mary Pop'ns!

But Mary Poppins is practically perfect in every way!

Saruman's powers consisted of breeding orcs and losing custody of Gandalf, so far as I can tell, whereas Mary Poppins is practically perfect in every way.

POPPINS WINS

Saruman couldn't even beat an opponent who was confined by his world's physical law, never mind a flying nanny with an infinite handbag. As much as I like Saruman, he doesn't stand a chance.

The above seem to forget that Mary Poppins would likely teach Saruman an important lesson. And in that way, doesn't every one win?

Later: Sharkey is decapitated by an umbrella.

A spoonful of gunpowder makes the Helms Deep wall go down. . . Don't count Saruman out.

Hobbits are perhaps more unruly than children, and Saruman did a pretty good job of taming them, so a vote for Curunir here...

That said, Julie Andrews does outrank Christopher Lee (really! She's a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, whereas he's only Commander of the Order of the British Empire).

MP wins, no question.

Mary Poppins doesn't need a palantir to know what's going on behind her...

@The Bitter Fig:

Not quite true; Sir Christopher Lee, as well as being a CBE, is a KB (Knight Bachelor) - hence "Sir" - to which there is no female equivalent; ladies deserving of the appellation "Dame" get a DBE instead. So neither ranks the other.
