Which is better?The commenters go him one better, with such gems as these:
Passenger-side airbags . . . or the second movement of Beethoven’s seventh symphony?
Charles Mingus’s “Moanin’” (off Blues and Roots) . . . or the episode in the Simpsons’ “Tree House of Horror” in which Homer goes through a mysterious portal into the third dimension?
Wallace Stevens’ “Notes Toward a Supreme Fiction” . . . or game seven of the Twins-Braves World Series in 1991?
Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion . . . or the Foo Fighters’ “Everlong”?
The French Revolution . . . or DVDs?
Remember to show your work! . . . and have an arbitrary weekend, everyone.
This is addictive! I’ll try to restrain myself after these last ones:Here are some more:
Bill Clinton ... or George Clinton?
George Bush ... or Reggie Bush?
Hee hee! ... or Bwaaaa ha ha! ?

All of these dichotomies are irrelevant. Lutheran surrealism is the bestest of all!

Ritz Crackers? Or Che Guevara?
Euler’s Formula? Or Chicken Tikka Masala?
Bourbon? Or The House of Bourbon?
Lorentz-FitzGerald contraction? Or Sugar Maples?
As a civilization, it is clear we are faced with a choice.
