    Definitely Coke vs the Anti-Coke.

    Why the Anti-Coke is even allowed on my planet... I have no idea.

    "You are a strange, sad little man?"

    Dan; You shouldn't talk to yourself in mirrors son.

    They'll take you away.

    Take you where you can trade your gloom for a rubber room and injections twice a day...

    ANTI-COKE? c'mon! Pepsi!!!!!!! its pepsi all the way. COKE is really just the anti-pepsi, the INFERIOR cola.

    In a perfect world there would be NO coke, just pepsi :) but i suppose its like the whole philosophy behind good and evil, you can never appreciate the good (pepsi :) ) without having to first endure the evil (coke :( )

    PEPSI FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HA!

    You know;

    There have been legitimate studies on pregnant women that have suggested that if the woman in question was an avid Coke drinker that the child would be a boy, where with others that had favored Pepsi, the child would have been a girl.

    I'm not kidding. I can't quote the exact source, but look into it.

    Yin and Yang; The carbonated battle...

    Anti-Coke?!?! The only Anti-Coke is that 'Vanilla Coke'...Sounds like a fancy French drink.
    There is nothing better then a cold Pepsi on a nice summer afternoon.
    See, a nice Pepsi is just like a woman, you can't stop. You have more and more...
    Ahhh! *runs out to buy a Pepsi*

    Coke is the one true cola, and just to prove that it's the best they come out with other colas that are equally good, cherry coke and vanilla coke, can pepsi do this no, they come out with pepsi clear, flop, and now they have this weird blue liquid which they try to pass off as a beverage, and on top of that, pepsi is so desperate to get you to drink their cola that they have to compare against coke in every single add, they say look look someone chose pepsi over coke look look, coke doesn't do this because everyone knows it's the better cola so they just show a cool refreshing can of coke and people say oh i should buy one, and then they do, true story

    Sorry Kit, but Pepsi has the 3 "Super" Colas...

    Pepsi (The one and only)
    Wild Cherry Pepsi (Much better than Cherry Coke, c'mon, ostrich? What's that about?)
    Pepsi Blue (requires divine intervention to make... refer to subway ad)

    Plus on top of all that, they do have Britney Spears. End of story, Fin. :D

    Proving just how EEVIL pepsi is, that, and its foul taste.

    Okay...as a devout Pepsi addict, I must reluctantly agree with Adam though...when Britney signed on, I nearly spewed my Pepsi. However...this is one fight that I don't really care about. I like Pepsi. It's sweeter than Coke. Coke is more harsh. I can always tell the difference. However, both have really cool jingles, and I liked the Cherry Coke ostrich!!! (Memories of high school galore!) However, again, Pepsi Blue is actually pretty good tasting! I LIKE IT! And I like Vanilla Coke...BUT...I liked Vanilla COLA before Coke decided to adopt it...JONES SODA BABY!!! In the words of the Barenaked Ladies "It's all been done!"

    Can someone explian to me why people are fighting about Pepsi or coke? They are all the same to me. On a hot day, it doesnt matter which one just which ever is the coldest. I think the competition is way overblown. the only competition that is worst then the cola wars is Republican's vs. Democrats.

    Why are people debating over which is better, Coca-Cola or pepsi (obviously, Coke)? It is because to them there is a difference and it is fun to debate such things. Though, it is not fun to drink pepsi...sick, sick, misguided fools. I pity them.

    *Sings the old 80`s Coke marketing song*

    "Just for the taste of it....diet Coke..Ahhh!...."

    :p

    EDIT:

    Anyone remember those Coke adds with Alfred the butler sending Batman to the corner store, or Catwoman snatching one up with her whip?

    Gobots vs Transformers???!!!!

    I think that was a battle that was won before it started. Abso-freakin-lutely Transformers was way cooler then GoBots.

    BTW Wil,

    I'm not sure if you know but the G1 Re-issues of Prowl and Jazz are available. Tracks and Skids are coming out soon. And TRU will have rereleases of G1 Prime, Ultra Magnus and Hot Rod.
