In what is now a weekly prompt, Rory has a new batch of Weekend Quickie questions for us to ponder.
Why is the sea salty?
Because all of the swimmers and sailors who have urinated in it throughout human history.
How smart do you think you are on a scale between 01 – 10?
Smarter than the average bear, Boo Boo.
How many leaves does the average tree have, and how do you know this?
In the winter, none. I know this because I have to rake all of those goddam leaves up in the autumn when they fall from the trees.
Does today’s fashion inspire you, or do you do you?
I do me.
Taking your size into consideration, on a clear night, how far are you from the moon’s surface?
The same distance I am on a cloudy night.
How would you describe a banana to someone who had never seen one, eaten one, or even heard of one over the phone?
Delicious and it goes great sliced up on a bowl of cold cereal.
Can you spell it?
Yes, the first letter is 👁 and the second letter is 🫖.
Why did six cry?
Because seven ate nine.
What would you rather ….
- Swim in shark-infested waters with a cut on your toe …
- Hang glide above an active volcano wearing just underwear …
- Dance naked in a fire ants nest …
- Be shot from a cannon with only a birthday bow in your hair…
- … and more importantly, why did you pick your option?
I’d rather hand glide naked with only a birthday bow in my hair and with a cut on my toe above a nest of fire ants near the base of a volcano. Why? Don’t ask why, Rory. Instead, ask why not.
What is a slow, comfortable screw, and when was the last time you had one or have you not?
A slow comfortable screw is a mixed drink made with sloe gin, Southern Comfort, vodka, and orange juice. Some recipes also call for rum. I have never had a slow comfortable screw but I did have an interesting experience with a sloe gin fizz. If you’re interested, I wrote about it here.
Would you eventually fall out of the earth when you hit bottom if you dug a hole and kept on tunnelling down?
No, I’d eventually burn up once I reached the molten core of the planet.
