This or That?

Something tickled loose a piece of mental lint recently, and I started thinking about the numerous “X” or “Y” questions that occasionally come up in casual conversations. Coke or Pepsi. Mac or Windows. Boxers or Briefs. You know the drill. So for grins and giggles I thought I’d capture those I can remember and have an opinion on. Let me know if I missed any classics.

Coke Pepsi
Windows Mac
Ginger Mary Anne
Boxers Briefs
Family Guy The Simpsons
Beer Wine
The Beatles The Rolling Stones
