The truly bizarre quiz-meme:

Posted by Miss Knotty on March 5, 2007

Okay. I took a quiz earlier on Myspace called ’38 spontaneous questions’.

The questions were not spontaneous, nor were they in any way angled to  make anyone think, laugh, or write funny answers.  What. a. bore.

So here are some questions that I thought of while I was answering the boring quiz (which Myspace actually wouldn’t post my answers to the boring quiz.  Sigh.

Anyway, here is my version of the spontaneous questions quiz.  There are some quote-questions in there, there are also some questions containing silly quotes, and some truly bizarre stuff, if I do say so myself.  If you answer, please hit me with a link – I’d love to see how people respond.  If you think I’m a nut, comment and tell me so.  It’ll probably make me laugh.   I’d like a good laugh.

I’m not tagging anyone, and this isn’t one of those ‘ if you don’t answer 60 horrible things will happen to every person you’ve ever told that you love’ or anything.  It’s really. just. for. giggles.

Thank you and have a nice day.  Rememer, if you read it and decide to answer, please comment with a link, I’d love to read it.

One Response to “The truly bizarre quiz-meme:”

    My husband was once interviewing someone for a job. We lived in a town that had a toll booth at the freeway exit at our town; 25 cents or a token to get off, 50 cents or two tokens to continue on through. Locals bought rolls of the tokens, which gave you half off.

    The guy he interviewed bragged about telling the tolltaker that he was getting off, and that he then continued through and got away with it. No biggy.

    Meaning, depending on whether or not he had a roll of tokens, he had sold his integrity for 12.5 cents or 25. The hubby was shaking his head as he told me, and I said, You didn’t hire him, did you?

    No, but his boss overrode him and did. The guy turned out to be a terrible employee. Big surprise.

    On a lighter note, I dunno, but one of them was a guy Grandma had had a crush on for awhile. He couldn’t be bothered. A few years later, he had a crush on her, but she couldn’t be bothered. Then his dad bought him a car with windshield wipers, the very first car ever to. He called her on a snowy day. She didn’t want to go out with him–but she wanted to see those wipers: cool. My grandma the gadget freak in, what, 1920?

    They were married 72 years.
