Melanie B Cee on her Blog, Sparks from a Combustible Mind, regularly posts her Share the World post, which asks questions. See her post here:
Also, A Guy Called Bloke, who I call Mr Impy because of his mischievous impishness has also posed some intriguing questions. See his post here:
7 and Three Quarters Nutty
1) Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures? –
I have many, many guilty pleasures. I like to dunk my biscuits (cookies) in my tea. I like to eat cold baked beans straight out of the tin and I take great pleasure in watching very old movies and T.V programmes that others may think are too old. I am talking Anna Neagle, Greer Garson and even Laurel and Hardy!
2) What Is The Worst Pick Up Line You Ever Heard?
For the guys: What’s The Worst Pick Up Line You’ve Used?
I do not engage in that sort of thing. I’d rather just put my feet up at home and have a nice cup of tea and dunk my biscuits.
3) What Slang Or Trend Makes You Feel Old?
All of it. I don’t keep up with trends or slang. I don’t really have any interest in it either. When people use Internet slang on their blogs or messages I have to look it up to see what they mean. I have occasionally been guilty of using LOL but only since I found out it meant Laugh out Loud rather than Lots of Love.
4) What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song?
Oh, So, So Many. I am bound to annoy people and lose friends when I say that most of whom people consider to be Iconic musicians, I cannot see what the fuss is about. Elvis is probably the last Pop Icon worthy of the title. All else are dross.
5) You Find A Book And Begin To Read Only To Discover That It Is Your Life. You Get To The Point That You Are At Now, Do You Turn The Page Knowing That You Will Not Be Able To Change The Events To Come?
Unlike a friend of mine, I NEVER read the last page of a book before I get to it. I read the back cover, synopsis then I start from the beginning. I often lose interest but I NEVER Jump forward. I would be the same with a book of my life. I would hope that there is a lot of interesting stuff to come. Ideally, the rest of the book would be blank with the words, “Write your own Adventure” written at the top. 🙂
That was for Melanie’s Share Your World. I hope you appreciate my Bold responses.
Now for Rory’s Nutty questions. Let no one doubt my fidelity to my fellow bloggers.
7 and Three Quarters Nutty Questions
- A cowboy rode into town on Friday. He stayed in town for three days and rode out on Friday. How is that possible?
There is a proper answer to this, that Friday was the name of the horse he rode in on, but there is another possibility. The whole thing happened on another planet where the sun’s orbit is sufficiently shorter that one week is exactly three days and they only have Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
A rooster laid an egg on top of the barn roof. Which way did it roll?
Roosters lay square eggs so it didn’t roll at all.
A truck driver is going down a one way street the wrong way, and passes at least ten cops. Why is he not caught?
Because he is carrying a very large bazooka and looks like a really mean fellow.
A farmer had 752 sheep and took one shot that got them all. How did he do it?
He fired a grenade that then exploded carrying them all, including himself, to kingdom come.
What word is spelled incorrectly in every single dictionary?
Well a lot of words that have a U in them in British English and don’t for American English, an Englishman would consider them spelt wrong in American Dictionaries whereas an American would consider them spelled wrongly in English Dictionaries. Of course, the word Incorrectly is also spelt incorrectly.
What starts with “e” and ends with “e” but only has one letter in it?
An Envelope usually only has one letter in it, but there is nothing stopping anyone from putting more than one letter in, or indeed including something unpleasant, like a dog turd, but only if being sent to a politician.
What two keys can’t open any door?
The Florida Keys, they can’t open any door and of course, Alicia Keys has a huge entourage who are paid to do that sort of thing for her.
Monkeys are perfectly capable of opening doors and if you don’t believe me, try having some privacy in a toilet cubicle surrounded by marauding macaques.
A man went outside in the pouring rain with no protection, but not a single hair on his head got wet. How come?
He had rubbed Nixwax into his hair, or would that count as protection?
He hadn’t got any hair in the first place.
He had an umbrella, he just didn’t carry any protection, ie he was vulnerable to a physical assault or potential producing some unwanted offspring.
Would you rather be trapped in an elevator full of men with BO, three soaked dogs, a basket filled with week-old smelly socks or a box filled with used nappies?
I don’t get into lifts (what we call elevators, by the way) I always use the stairs. Lifts tend to smell of urine and are invariable breaking down.
Would you rather look like an octopus, act like an octopus or be an octopus?
I suppose I’d rather act like an octopus. I could swim around and then spray people with ink if I felt under attack, which is pretty constant.
If you had the world’s attention for 30 seconds, what would you say?
Just shut up, stop whining, whinging and procrastinating (look who’s talking 😉 ) and get on with trying to make the world a better place.
Would you rather be able to copy and paste in real life, or undo in real life?
I would rather create new material than copy and paste but quite often my new material is awful and rather cliched so probably an Undo button would be useful. In fact, maybe I should go back and Undo what I’ve said in this post….
So, with any luck, you have found my post amusing and it has made you laugh out loud.
I live in hope, anyway.
Have a nice day. 🙂
