What!?!?

How did Niveous get out voted on that challenge?
I never thought I'd see the day. This challenge came up in NE4 and Niv talked us all out of it.
I bet it comes up a lot, maybe you're tired of arguing against it?

I'm not looking forward to all the rap to come.

Nur Ein!!

Do you guys want more rap verses? Because this is how you get rap verses.

I may be able to reuse lyrics that I cut from my last song. :o

Not a fan of this challenge... I must say... good thing I'll probably be voted out in Round 1 so I don't feel bad for being automatically eliminated for not meeting the challenge of Round 2. :P

Diss tracks definitely are not relegated to the world of rap.

Didn't get out voted. Maybe times have changed. It has been a decade, y'know. I appreciate the diss track but it has to be well done.

and yes, I fear an abundance of bad rap, so perhaps contestants will heed my warning. Don't do bad rap. If you are going to rap, do a good job. Else, stay in your lane.

I think the obvious answer to this challenge is to diss the idiots who came up with this challenge.

This song is really hard. None of the Mandibles like to be mean, and we’re really bad at it...

"Someone or something", the challenge says. So you can write a diss track about broccoli or whatever, unless you don't want to be mean to broccoli.

Sadly, Glenn and I are horrible people, so the dissing will be in full effect.

Well fine, Glenn is nice. I'm a horrible person.

Ok you got me, I'm not really human. I am pretty horrible though.

To me, Dis will always be the best part of the 6th-9th circles of Hell.

It was also the name we gave the house that Yook and I lived in, back in the SF days

I'll weigh in here and say that if someone writes a diss track about broccoli, I will take it upon myself to write a diss track about them. Broccoli is pure.

Grumpy Mike, without looking down, slowly peels his right glove off. He smiles as eyes meet his across the room, hoping that it distracts from his hands' motions below. He continues, neatly folding the glove in half. After a nonchalant survey of the room to ensure nobody is paying - or soon may be paying - attention, he kneels down, and sets the glove on the floor. Upon ascent, he abruptly stops and kneels again to place a napkin under the glove so it doesn't get dirty. He pats the glove, and stands. One more nervous look around the room - nobody saw him. He proceeds to walk backwards at an undetectable rate until he's left the room. He bumps into someone. "Oh hey, ha, it looks like someone may have thrown down a glove, or something, isn't that funny? What a strange thing to do! Well, I have to leave now."
