Chatty Q&A?

0E949CFA-EB8D-4B2C-8DB8-851E4E1FFA39So Rory, A Guy Called Bloke, tagged me for this “Come Chat With Me” thing. The rules are:

  1. Answer the questions you receive (straight, funny, absurd, up to you)
  2. Create three questions of your own for those that you tag to answer
  3. Tag three people

So what does Rory do? He asks three truly absurd questions. Thanks a lot, Rory.

Hurly Burly or Wally Bolly and why?

I don’t know. How about Hurdy Gurdy and Woolly Bully?

Blue underpants with green socks or pink boxers with yellow sandals?

How about no underpants and no socks or sandals?

If the letter A wsn’t in our lphabet wht would you plce in its plce or in other words?

Reminds me of this:

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility. 

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as “Euro-English”. 

In the first year, “s” will replace the soft “c”. Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard “c” will be dropped in favour of “k”. This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome “ph” will be replaced with “f”. This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter. 

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. 

Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. 

Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent “e” in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away. 

By the 4th yer peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing “th” with “z” and “w” with “v”. 

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary “o” kan be dropd from vords kontaining “ou” and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl. 

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi TU understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru. 

Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

Now I have to ask three questions:

  1. If you could have been born in any country other than the one in which you were born, which country and why?
  2. If you could go back in time and change any important life decision of your choice, what would it be and why?
  3. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Now I’m supposed to tag three other bloggers, but instead I’m going to tag any other bloggers who want to come chat with me.

Weekend Fun

9151BD27-5F39-491A-871E-D60BA349190DTeresa, the Haunted Wordsmith, wants to have a little weekend fun. No, not that kind of weekend fun. Get your minds out of the gutter, for crissake. Although if that’s the kind of weekend fun she hopes to have, more power to her.

But I digress. Teresa posted a new challenge. She posed three questions and then instructed the three of us she tagged to:

  1. Answer the questions you receive (straight, funny, absurd, up to you)
  2. Add three more questions of your own to the list
  3. Tag three people

Okay. Here are her questions and my answers:

1. What would Klaatu (The Day the Earth Stood Still) think of Earth if he landed today?

Way back then, during his first visit to our planet, he warned the people of Earth that, if we can’t live together peacefully, we would be a danger to other planets and that our planet would have to be destroyed. On this visit, he would tell us that his previous threat of the Earth’s destruction from the outside no longer applies, now that we are destroying it from within.

2. If books’ characters were not imprisoned by their covers, which two characters would make a great couple?

Offred from “A Handmaid’s Tale” and Winston Smith from “1984.” They would make such an upbeat couple, don’t you think?

3. For US folks: Turkey, Ham, or Something Else on Thanksgiving? For Int’l folks: What is one food you recommend most from your country?

Turkey, of course. It’s the one day of the year I eat turkey.

Okay, now for three more questions:

4. What are your three favorite movies?

5. Toilet paper rolls: over or under?

6. What’s you favorite fish? No, not the kind you eat, the kind you keep in an aquarium, assuming that you don’t raise fish in an aquarium in order to eat them.

Now to tag three people who I presume are supposed to answer Teresa’s three questions as well as the three I added.

Have some weekend fun y’all.
