    ERB is evolving. :) We are independent now. And returning with Season 6 in the Spring. But what doesn't change is the fact we need your suggestions. So please keep them coming. We are on the prowl for some badass match-ups.

      Have i suggested Aquaman vs Micheal Phelps before? because that should be a thing :)

      also, is there a way to do Weed vs Alcohol? Theres some deep history there I'm sure :) Or Caffiene vs Alcohol. both of those are pretty ancient.

      But then, I have a thing for the history of drugs.

      Here's a suggestion from I get it, some how there are millions of people without taste whom will supply you with ad revenue.

      All you guys are doing, is supplying Hell with content to torture it's victims.

      Cause that is hell, being chained down and being forced to watch THIS GARBAGE.

      everytime I catch a glimpse of one of these

          I love how this battle joins a kind of happy sounding beat to extremely mean lines by both parties (TB and scarlet fever; Oak)

                            The reason The Theory of evolution is not the Law of evolution is that while it is the most widely accepted and common knowledge, this is only due to it being the only scientific explanation available thus far, however it has never actually been proven which is why it was never made into a law like the law of gravity, even to this day scientist are still trying to figure out if this has any real value but that will take a long time, evolution based on the theory takes forever, when was the last time you heard of a species showing any signs of evolution in the past 9 generations of your family's life

                                        Darwin would have won if he kept in his good insults from verse 1 but lost it (except for last line)
                                        Ash won with the most destructive insults to him from 1 2 3 (most people don’t understand)
