At long last, the world will finally have a definitive answer to that most perplexing of riddles.

Who's more annoying: Samir Nasri or Piers Morgan?

Thank heavens, too. It's a Twitter fight, which means we'll all be able to follow every childish, smarmy, self-indulgent, over-privileged twist and turn.

Ahem. Take it away, Piers "I'm not involved in the phone hacking scandal, honest!" Morgan!

Fair enough. Morgan is a "celebrity" Arsenal fan, and Samir Nasri really got under the skin of Arsenal fans last year when Nasri moved to Manchester City and started running his mouth about how Arsenal could no longer win trophies.

So when Arsenal beat Manchester City 1-0 on Sunday, it was only natural that the Twittersphere would blow up for a few hours. But Nasri, who's a professional, wouldn't be drawn into such a silly fight with such a high-profile tormenter so easily, right?

No? Oh Samir. Pourquoi?

Things escalated from there, with Samir suggesting Piers learn French (while writing in hilariously broken Google-translate English) and Piers suggesting they make a Mitt Romney-style wager over whose team will win silverware first (Samir accepted).

Now, the feud is spreading quickly across the interwebs, and there's really no way this can end well.

Except for us, the fans. When Samir and Piers fight a deathmatch to crown the king of obnoxious, we all win.
