Irresistible force was my ex-wife doing the cleaning & immovable object is me at the bar while the pub's open  :D

But seriously, folks - could such things really exist?

Depends what you mean by irresistable. It is supposedly possible to orbit a black hole inside the event horizon, indefinitely. Does this count as resistance?
