    We’ve argued over so many of these, haven’t we? Maybe that’s what made close to half the list less infuriating.

  2. Dela says:

    I agree with most of them, so I’ll just list out the ones with which I don’t.

    Gandalf over Obi-Wan
    Nike over Adidas, though that’s probably because Nike sponsors United while Adidas sponsors Loserpool (and Chel$ki, for that matter)
    Autumn over Spring, but Monsoon over both
    Arthur Conan Doyle over Agatha Christie (Rapu da, tut tut *shakes head in disappointment)
    Calvin over XKCD was an easy one, but Peanuts? Hmmm…
    Rorschach over Batman
    Bach’s Cello Suite No.1 in G: Prelude over the Fur Elise, but Beethoven’s String Quartet No.16 over them both
    George Costanza over Chandler Bing
    I can’t make up my mind about Mountains vs The Sea, though.
    And what in the name of Summer Glau is Tutun-tutun?

  3. Saagar says:


    Harry over everyone else
    Aishwarya Rai over everyone else
    Federer over Borg (McEnroe over Borg, Sapmras over Federer)
    Murder over Orient Express over And then There was Rapu
    Nike over Adidas
    Bugs Bunny over Donald Duck
    Gym over Jogging
    Blogger over WordPress
    Chocolate over Ice-cream

    Eating or sleeping leave me speechless.

    I can see the reason of choosing Ice cream over chocolate ;), and also, I don’t know about many things, but just can’t believe your choice of Pasta over Pizza after the evidence we had in Goa. For camera, Canon over anything else, anytime. Mountains over sea, anytime. I understand your choice, because it’s not programmed in you, but come on, you can work it out 😉

  5. Dela says:

    Oh and Federer over Borg quite easily. McEnroe vs Federer remains tied though.

  6. Murty says:

    I’ll have to break the sacred unspoken rule of no second comment.

    Federer over Henin over Borg. The rest barely matter, unless you take Gasquet’s backhand, Bethanie Mattek’s dressing sense and Hewitt’s “Come on!”s apart, individually.

    And, Pink Floyd way over Led Zeppelin. WordPress-Blogger undecided.

  7. Raps says:

    @Lefty Why do you think I left them out?
    @Amul Nikon Nikon Nikon
    @Murty Who asked you (or anyone else,for that matter) to make a list of clashes? Especially as comments on my blog!
    @Dhila I also wanted to mention Bach’s Orchestral Suite No.3 in D Major, but that stands a few heads and shoulders above the rest. And, like Murty, my choice for Adidas often leaves me in more than a mere conundrum. For the formal definition of tuntun-tutun, ask Lefty.

  8. Led Zeppelin over Pink Floyd?! How? Why?

  9. PeeTeeVee says:

    Agree with almost all of them. Loved the Snape over the others one. That and the 42.

  10. The Jackal over the next ‘great’ villain in fiction? The Joker over any fictional villain. Ever.
