From somewhere on the Internet, I saw these questions; I think they hold potential:

Which of the "Facts of Life" girls are you most like?

If you were a deodorant, would you be a roll-on, stick, or spray?

Do you prefer Emanuel Lewis or Gary Coleman?

Would you rather have ebola or smallpox?

Would you rather have bamboo shoved under your nails, Chinese water torture, or your ankles chewed off by a pack of wild dogs?

If you were a fruit/marsupial/despotic leader of a third world country/[fill in the blank], which would you be?

Do you have any special questions you'd like to ask?

Good God Pam, it's Friday - of course these aren't penetrating questions. Are you having a bad day???

Personally, I think these are real thought provoking questions!
Now Steve, it would definitely be more fun if you posted your answer to these questions.

When I interview candidates I don't ask about torture, I like to demonstrate it. The bamboo thing can be bloody though, especially if they have a clotting disorder.

Maha, since you asked...

Which of the "Facts of Life" girls are you most like? Tootie - she was always upending the apple cart and causing chaos. Clearly, she was the most outside-the-box person on the show.

If you were a deodorant, would you be a roll-on, stick, or spray? Stick all the way. With spray, the environment takes a beating; roll-on made my armpit hairs stick together. Yuck.

Do you prefer Emanuel Lewis or Gary Coleman? WhatchutalkinboutMaha? I think Emanuel Lewis was cuter and has managed to sidestep the bad element that has befallen Coleman.

Would you rather have ebola or smallpox? Since I doubt I'll ever get into an intimate relationship with a monkey, I'll say smallpox.

Would you rather have bamboo shoved under your nails, Chinese water torture, or your ankles chewed off by a pack of wild dogs? I like them ALL. Heh-heh. Bring it on.

If you were a fruit/marsupial/despotic leader of a third world country/[fill in the blank], which would you be? Fruit: Kiwi - hairy on the outside, sweet on the inside. Marsupial: Kangaroo - cause it rhymes with Nuroo. Despot - Frederick the Great remains one of the most famous German rulers of all time for his military successes and his domestic reforms that made Prussia one of the leading European nations. Frederick II because although he was one of the Enlightened Despots, he was the "first servant of the state", not ruling by his own personal whims but always under principles of what was most beneficial for Prussia. Just like me and RBC...

Thank you for making me laugh this Friday afternoon.

Since someone requested my answers :-)

1. Facts of Life - never watched it. I do think it ran on Lebanese television, but I wasn't into it.
2. Roll-on all the way, 'cause everything smoothly rolls of me... go ahead, insult me, see if it sticks :-)
3. I watched Diff'rent Strokes growing up, so Gary Coleman in his watchatalkinaboutlewis character
4. None of the above? Actually, I think I already had smallpox, (yes, I did, so?)
5. Ouch, ouch, and ouch!! I hate my ankles, so I'll choose door number 3
6. Interesting, how political can I get? I grew up in the Middle East after all, so un-political as possible (is there such a word?) Fruit, anything exotic - maybe only grown in Hawaii, for Animal's sake; Marsupial - it has to be the koala, 'cause they're so adorable; despotic leader - as in a ruler with absolute power - why myself, of course!

Which of the "Facts of Life" girls are you most like? None thanks I'm quite comfortable with my sexuality writers note... I have no idea about the "Facts of Life" girls

If you were a deodorant, would you be a roll-on, stick, or spray? Spray, I'm messy and noisy... but smell nice

Do you prefer Emanuel Lewis or Gary Coleman? Gary Coleman... are you serious? Gary got a gig ont he Simpsons (not the Jessica variety)

Would you rather have ebola or smallpox? Smallpox, I could make fun of the term.

Would you rather have bamboo shoved under your nails, Chinese water torture, or your ankles chewed off by a pack of wild dogs? I'd prefer them shoved under your nails... nah seriously, Chinese Water torture, we have a drought here in Australia.

If you were a fruit/marsupial/despotic leader of a third world country/[fill in the blank], which would you be? A despotic leader, as I need to learn what the term means

I do see the merit, bu think I'd adjust mine a bit, as follows:

- Which Breakfast Club character are you most like?
- Van Halen or Van Hagar?
- Would you rather be marooned on a desert island with Paris Hilton or gouge out your eyes with a grapefruit spoon and save yourself the agony?(tough choice)
- Tomato: Fruit or Vegetable?
