What's Better Semifinal: Puttin' on the Ritz v Inconvenient Truth

On paper, this looks like a mismatch. "Puttin' on the Ritz" rolls into the semifinals with the most cumulative votes of any entry, An Inconvenient Truth seems to be following the Jim Valvano mantra of "survive and advance." Still, we all know what happened when Valvano's Wolfpack took on the mighty Phi-Slamma-Jamma, don't we? I think it may take that kind of upset.

Nevertheless, for a spot in the finals, I ask:
"What's Beter?": An Inconvenient Truth or "Puttin' on the Ritz"?

Ritz, because its just so much more fun than global destruction. And we all know fun should be our chief end in life.

Clearly "Ritz". It's far more adaptable for many uses. Long after Florida is underwater from the melted icecaps, we'll still be puttin' on the ritz.

BTW, how do we differentiate putting as in placing and putting as in sinking the golf ball or tossing shot? (Do you putt in disc golf?)

I just know I'm setting myself up for an accusation of "amusing ourselves to death," but I've got to go with Fred Astaire & "Puttin' on the Ritz."

If there's a dance band on the Titanic, then I guess we need somebody to do the tap.

Another vote for Ritz.

Gotta go for timeless over timely. Another vote for the Ritz.
