Have you played the (fairly) new board game out now called Would You Rather? I think they must have compiled all those nonsensical hypotheticals that dominate beer time. You’re given a choice between two equally obnoxious situations and forced to decide between them. Just for fun today, I’m going to let you take a swing at a few of them.
Would you rather…
–be forced to dress like Lady Gaga at her most outrageous for the rest of your life (see raw meat dress below), OR be forced to wear your grandmother’s clothes for the rest of your life?
–become invisible at random and uncontrollable times, OR have people hear your thoughts at inappropriate moments?
–have the power to temporarily rewind to favorite times of your life, OR fast forward through painful ones?
–have hair of dirty straw, OR a pig nose?
–have quadruplets, OR have four babies all ten months apart?
–live with a dozen ninety-year-olds in your house, OR with a dozen ostriches?
–jump into a bathtub of ice water, OR jump into a bathtub of lukewarm egg salad?
–be surfing 15 yards from shore and see a great white shark 30 yards away coming toward you, OR be snow shoeing down a hill from the lodge, and see a grizzly bear 30 yards away headed toward you?
–have steam blow out your ears every time you get angry, OR have a long tongue that rolls down to the floor every time you see someone very attractive?
–lose every single strand of hair all over your body, OR triple your hair count?
–be hideously ugly, OR unbelievably stupid?
–gradually lose your intelligence and memory, OR gradually lose your morals and integrity?
–write one brilliant novel at twenty, but never accomplish another thing, OR die before your body of work is discovered and universally acclaimed?
Do you want to tackle any of these just for fun? Have any others thought- provoking choices for us? Let’s hear yours!
