Based on the incredible popularity of my Pence vs. Quayle post I’ve decided to do another head-to-head face off. Today’s topic, however, is far more important:

Neil Diamond or Meat Loaf? Who is the more bombastic performer? Who is cheesier? Who has the best lip curl? Who the most ridiculous lyrics? Who is your favorite?

Cast your vote and leave a comment.

For my younger readers scratching their heads, Daddy and Grandpa are talking so pay attention. Follow the links on the song titles for some cultural education and to see your elders laying down some really awkward and embarrassing dance moves on the Neil Diamond videos.
