    Since today is a lot of people's Friday, I'm doing the Friday thread early.

    I figured a "versus" thread. Someone throws out two things, you debate which is better/grosser/whatever, and why.

    I'll start. Better show: The Cosby Show or Fresh Prince, and why?

    Cosby, because that's one that I watched. And it had a spin off.

    "versus" vs. "vs."
    Or some people just use "v"

    Which is best?

    I love me some Cosby, right up until Raven Simone came on. I loved Fresh Prince, but Cosby will always win for me.

    Scalloped corn wins every contest, if it's made right.

    I like both of these but since mashed potatoes are more common at meals I think I'll give the nod to green bean casserole. However, there has to be a heavy amount of fried onions on my green bean casserole in order to win this contest. So in keeping up with the food theme:

    Pumpkin pie vs Pecan Pie

    It's stuffing. Dressing goes on salads.

    Fresh Prince

    Dressing, closely followed by mashed potatoes but if there is no gravy the whole thing is worthless.

    Britney Spears, when "Hit Me Baby One More Time" came out my head nearly exploded.

    I use "v." because it's what's used in legal opinions and thus, sounds cool. I.e., Gibbons v. Ogden.

    Continuing a water cooler conversation from work this morning...

    Daniel Craig v. Pierce Brosnan v. Timothy Dalton v. Roger Moore v. George Lazenby v. Sean Connery

    I'd have to go with Brit Spears doing the Coke(?) commercial with Bob Dole. Definitely pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and good call on the scallopped corn Angie.
