MAILBAG! Mini-Rankings with Courtney and Emma

What is the best shape? The coolest fictional world? The nicest way to end a relationship? The sexiest Pokemon? Sure, such questions might not warrant a full episode of New Rankings on their own, but they are crucial, contentious issues all the same. Ergo... the mailbag! In this episode, Teddy, Courtney, and Emma select their favorite listener-suggested mini-rankings, and nearly end their friendship in the process of arguing such debates as: Are smoothies just milkshakes? Is it pedophilic to be attracted to Charmander? And, most importantly, do circles suck?
