Hailing from sunny California, Ryan spends his days geeking out over science that mere mortals (like us) will never ever begin to comprehend.  He describes his accent as “Canadian according to a Mexican and not noticeable according to someone who was transiently in Minnesota.”  Ryan was born in Minnesota, spent a brief portion of his childhood living in the land of cheese, and later moved to California to avoid the extreme heat and cold of the Midwest.  He considers himself a cat person (although he does own a cat).  Ryan’s secret weapons include an extensive knowledge of physics, an endless supply of cupcakes and cupcake icing, and an insane robot dog.

Who will win in the battle of  MUFFIN vs. CUPCAKE?  Will the Muffin Man beat Ryan over the head with a cast iron muffin pan?  Or will Ryan defeat the Muffin Man with the powers of science?  There’s only one rational way to decide which fighter will win this battle. We’re putting this no-holds-barred fight to a vote. The poll will be open for approximately 24 hours, and you may vote as many times as you want. That’s right — we’re not blocking repeat votes, so vote now and vote often for your favorite Cocky & Rude Fight Club opponent.

Check back on Sunday for the results!

Thanks to both Ryan & Michelle M. for your assistance with this post!

  1. SRSLY! You are taller than Craig and he is freakishly tall. I will say, Ryan knows how to fill out an apron.

    I suspect Ryan will tower over the competition. Plus I love calling him Cupcake.

  2. cupcakes are way better than muffins. they don’t pretend to be healthy. They are just yummy and good. plus…icing. My vote is for Ryan….

      1. gross…just plain gross…unless they have lots of butter on them….and poached eggs and hollandaise…but still CUPCAKE FTW

  3. Too bad Ryan doesn’t know what I like anymore because Adam yelled at me for being a review blog, and now look, I don’t blog anymore. What hath Adam wrought?

    But anyway, I hope the muffin man continues to make muffins in the loser’s circle. I’m hungry.

    1. I still have some Y to read, but I don’t know what I’m going to get with the next volumes.0

    2. If you had blogged about the color of the sky in summer, Adam probably would have accused you of being an amateur meteorologist. Don’t take it personally.
