Which question did you hate answering most?
I have an Ozzy thong.. If I got you one, would you wear it?
What are Heelys? Is that a shirt with the guy from I Dream of Jeanne on it?

Horshay - Just put on a Donald Trump toupee and give them a "You're Fired" in a bad DT immitation. Fun for you, makes them feel better about the whole thing. Then, go home a savor several beers.

Kyle - As you might expect, I pretty much hated answering all of them. Unfortunately, once I got started I felt the needed to finish it. The "what would you never wear" question was fun, but the others weren't interesting or funny enough. I don't recommend doing this exercise. However, Chuck's humorous response helps to make it wortwhile.

PS: Heeleys are thos infernal kids shoes with rollerskates in the heels. You know, you'll be standing in Lowes and some kid comes zooming by you but his feet aren't moving, so you think "Crap, I must be falling" and you reach out to grab something to steady yourself, but instead of grabbing a nearby endcap you accidentally grab some lady's boob and she screams and hits you with the broom she was buying, and then you're banned from Lowes. Those stupid Heeleys.

I think some of the questions were pretty lame as well. I was always a big fan of the beer commercial with all the guys around the pool table asking, "Mariann or Ginger?" "Jeanie or Samantha's evil sister?" "Wilma or Betty?"

I think these types of questions really get to the heart of who we are. Perhaps we should come up with a more interesting list of questions.

First one should be, "Football or baseball?"

Kyle said...

Oh football. No question.
All testosterone, all football, all the time! Maybe some barbeque.
