Galactic beauty cubed or firing background galaxies from your bar?

So which "island universe" is the coolest, the one whose galactic beauty is cubed or the one which is firing background galaxies from its bar?

So which galaxy is the coolest, the nameless three-armed galaxy behind M101 or NGC 986 which appears to fire a string of background galaxies from its bar?

Three-armed man. Hey Mister, didn't anyone tell you you should stop smoking?

I vote for the three-armed man - I mean, I vote for the three-armed galaxy - myself!
