My initial idea was ...
The greek letter tau
... because ...
as the rebus says: $\tau$ is better than $2\pi$
... but ..
This is at best the first step to the solution. I didn't see you can enlarge the picture and I cannot figure what to make out of it.

Bass notes that the enlarged picture represents a nanocentury. 10^-9 is the nano scale, and a cherry partially covered by a cent could be read (cent)erry, or century. Or as oAlt mentions, "cent-cherry" sounds like "century".
Bass relates it to the remarkable fact that that one nanocentury equals roughly pi seconds.
Amoz wraps it up:
Duff's Rule is "pi seconds is a nanocentury" - we have here "pi seconds (2 second place pis), "is a" (equal signs) and "nanocentury".
In summary, the answer should be
"Pi seconds is a nanocentury"
And it is not about tau after all...
