These ladies are armed and dangerous.
Brooklyn’s bulkiest biceps will bravely brawl in Williamsburg on Sunday night for the city’s first-ever New York Ladies Arm Wrestling event.
Eight national champs will face-off at Union Pool for the title — using only their well-toned arms, their muscular wits, and cash to bribe a panel of judges.
Lady wrestlers must keep their elbows on the table and their behinds in their seats at all times — there’s even a special referee to check posterior positioning.
“We have a butt ref whose only job it is to watch the butt,” said emcee Kate “Lady Libertine” McNeely. “We’re looking for a butt ref.”
Adding to the drama, the audience is allowed to place bets on each match — and influence the judges and referees with donations, all of which will benefit Brooklyn-based Safe Horizons, a nonprofit.
The crowd will no doubt rally behind Brooklyn’s own Jackie O’Nasty, an eight-year arm wrestling veteran and public school teacher, who has vowed to bring the title back to the borough’s fair soil.
But she will have to subdue stiff-armed challenges from Momatron, an actress and playwright, and Coyote Ugly, a professional model (and we don’t mean arm model).
McNeely wouldn’t disclose the odds, but boldly pronounced the event the “future of philanthropy.”
“Rather than sitting around and having a Tupperware party, we’re arm wrestling, kicking ass, partying, and wearing costumes,” said McNeely.
