Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones.

(RNN) - There is not a more exciting time of year for sports fans than March Madness, and if you don't believe that, have a chat with the employees of a local electronics store, grocery store or urologist.

Anyone not participating in the hullabaloo is probably having a gas (whoo! cheese dip) making fun of people who take the next three weeks too seriously, or at the very least, fill out a bracket (or two, or three) for the heck of it.

And if that doesn't get the ol' fancy tickled, then engage in a more worthwhile pastime - trying to figure out if Superman or Batman is the better superhero.

This is serious stuff, people. Take it seriously.
