_I can't decide which is more wrong
A pint of pussy or the wrongest halloween costume ever.

(And even I can't carry through on applying "Tastes Like Chicken" to that set.)
(And I do think that "wrongest" is the ultimate superlative of "wrong" since it's clearly more wrong than "most wrong.")
(And I have a headache now.)

_Has the RIAA been beaten?
Business 2.0 declares that the RIAA has blinked and is seeking "a new 'truce' between the Recording Industry Association of America and various tech industry lobbying organizations."
The agreement puts an end to the RIAA's attempts to have government-mandated copyright protection embedded in products sold by technology companies. In return, the tech companies -- big names such as Adobe, Apple Computer, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Intel, and Microsoft, represented under the aegis of the Business Software Alliance and the Computer Systems Policy Project -- have agreed to work with the RIAA to craft an industry-based solution to the piracy problem. ...[T]he truce actually highlights the fact that a power shift has taken place between the media moguls and big tech. And guess what. Tech won.

Simply put, the recording industry now needs the tech companies more than the tech companies need the recording industry.
Come on, you're not just teasing me, are you?
