Rantankerous [ran-tank'uhr-us] (adjective) - A combination of rant [to speak in a wild or extravagant manner] and cantankerous [contentious, disagreeable]. The word is the only suitable description for the arguments between Brian "What We Learned" Tynes and George "Hot Reads" Jones.

(RNN) - Does anyone else think about Willy Wonka singing on a stationary bike every time they hear the word "springtime?"

Although, not in that exact order and minus a few things.
