365 Days of Defiance, Day 118: Rap Battle from Hell

It's the Sandman and his cool slouch hat against the hell-demon who stole his hell-met. But they're not gonna arm wrestle or play chess or even Gnip-Gnop (funnest game on Earth!)...they have agreed to a battle of words. First off: "Yo' mama so fat..." Oh wait, it's a little more civilized than that.

The purpose of the game is to name something that can destroy whatever the opponent says. Personally, I'm all for using Megaweapon, but Dream and Dreamon Choronzon are playing on a much more intellectual plane.

C'mon, somebody say "your mom" already!


"Oh dear," says Choronzon, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

So remember: when you need the most powerful weapon of them all against the forces of hell, use HOPE!

Oh, and the other guy, too.
