What Bestthing choice would you love to see, though the odds of ever seeing would be close to naught.

Example attached..

Oh and Spoiler Alert.

I've seen the choices "You!" and "Me," but I've never seen them together. I'm actually not sure how I'm expected to interpret those two.

Batman or Superman? Yeah, I'm not very creative today.
Then I thought, "Man, I should have just said 'yeah.' "

Pie vs Pi

Was the first one that sprung to my mind. It'd be a pretty damn tough one to answer, too.....

I thought the picture was asking for something satisfying the inequalities [orange] < ? and [apple] < ? .

Apple<Pomegranates>Orange

My conclusion precisely. (I have discovered a truly remarkable proof, which the margin of this forum is too small to contain.)

My proof is pretty simple.

Let f: Positive TastyFruits ---> Real Fruits, f(x) = -1/x
Let x = Taste
Let y = Fruit
Let y = 0 = Pomegranates.


Lim Taste ----> Infinity; Fruit = Pomegranates

How can you even suggest there's a choice. Batman is clearly far more awesome than Superman. Superman is nigh invulnerable, can fly, has heat vision and who knows what else, but he still lets chumps like Lex Luthor push him around. Batman, on the other hand, is the completely self made superhero. He has no innate super ability, apart from his mind, which he uses to create all his bat gizmos, taking out supervillians all the same!

... Sheesh.
