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.

They are more than likely to be selling out of HDTVs, cheese dip and vasectomies. Click the link. We dare you.

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.
