    They beat the cardboard out of one another in Brooklyn Sunday - and it wasn't pretty.

    Combatants dressed like cartoon characters and knights in shining cardboard crossed tubes in Williamsburg's McCarren Park.

    "No poking, no stabbing, no aiming for the head," instructed Ravin Pierre, 27, of the Seattle-based Cardboard Tube Fighting League.

    Still, it wasn't exactly an epic of good sportsmanship.

    Joe Conklin, 28, of the upper East Side, wore a Chiquita banana box - or, as he put it, an "Aztec/Samurai-inspired helmet" - to beat a knight and dragon to a pulp.

    "My strategy was to let the two players focus on each other, then go in for cheap shots," he said.

    Ninja turtle Jeremy Westphal, 29, of Bushwick, won a hard-fought match against Josh Hager, 29, of Massachusetts, who dressed as the villain Shredder.

    "He knocked my helmet off," Westphal said. "That's when I went into a berserk-o rage."

    If the guy who had his helmet knocked off was the dude of the left I can see why he would.

    God damn it I mean right.

    Amazingly stupid, but looks awesome fun.

    I'd do it. It must takes ages getting all the cardboard, shaping it and painting it into armour.
    Well, it's one way to spend the summer.

    The first rule of cardboard tube fighting league is not to talk about cardboard tube fighting league.

    I sure as hell wouldn't, how fucking embarrassing.
    "Hey man, whats up?"
    "Not much, just brushing up on my cardboard tube fighting technique"

    If I had cardboard tube fighting armor I would want it to look like Tyrael's from Diablo II, the little wing thingies can be made from toilet paper.

    I used to do this when I was little, but it didn't take any effort to trash the tube. Can't imagine these fights lasting that long before somebody's tube won't even stay up.

    Not all tubes were created equal.

    Also, I was really extra cool my freshman year of high school and ended up with this on some Halloween:



    However, I could hurt people with that cardboard sword. Felt like being hit with a board.

    Edited:

    The way he mimics the animations is both awesome and hilarious.

    Or just cover an aluminum pipe with a cardboard tube.
