Seriously, these things are hilarious.

The Stephen Hawking vs. Einstein one is probably my favorite:

I love these. My favorite was Beethoven VS Justin Bieber.

Hawking vs. Einstein is probably my favorite one of them, but they're pretty damn awesome still *

I still love the Darth Vader vs. Adolf Hitler one, even if it Crosses the Line Twice.

I both love these and find them irritating to my nerd bone.

On the one hand, they're damn funny, on the other, the lyricism is atrocious in all but one or two of them.

I found the complete insanity of the lyrics to be part of the appeal. Rule of Funny and all that.

Well, insanity is one thing, I just don't find most of them all that clever (what's with the "x sounds like y having SEX with a z!" thing?) some of it is okay, though (Beethoven's line about a white Usher actually made me crack up)

I preferred Hawking's "10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000particles in the universe" comment.

I'm relatively sure that's a stolen joke.

Not that I'm an expert on discography, but I think MC Hawking made a similar pun at some point.

Yeah, the immaturity makes it funny, though, seeing how it's poking fun at both rappers. My favorite line was the one that said Justin Bieber couldn't even hit puberty.[lol]

[up] Actually, The Iliad is an epic that starts with a "rape battle". Chryses, a priest of Apollo, comes to the Greek ships begging for the return of the daughter Agamemnon enslaved, and Agamemnon is all "Go away, priest! I love your daughter more than my own wife. She'll grow old in my house, toiling at the loom and raped nightly!"

Back on subject...we don't seem to have a page for this yet. Should one be made?

Under Web Original, I'd assume.

The thing about making witty signature lines is that it first needs to actually be witty.

Yeah, that is just weird. They can't have run out of good ideas already.

I love the Albert Einstein vs. Stephen Hawking one absurdly much. Both of those guys are better than any of the other characters in any of the other videos. Also like Justin Bieber vs. Beethoven, because Beethoven is a badass (though using the Saint Bernard joke twice is a big strike against this one), and Hitler vs. Darth Vader. Because it crosses the line twice. Let me tell you as a German that the shower joke is one of the most cruelly funny things I've seen. Most of the rest wasn't that great (besides "Who even knows if I'm your father"), but still amusing. And I guess I'm just a sucker for rap that doesn't repulse me for its content.

Well, all their videos are based on audience suggestions...but who thought the Easter Bunny was a good idea?
