Longest Meme Question/Answer Rant EVER!

Got this meme off Samurai Frog's great site. If you are not reading his stuff yet then what the hell is wrong with you? The man is my mentor when it comes to writing opinion posts. I see some of these question will have me writing more than a couple of words to if you get bored just move along.

1. What is the color of your toothbrush?
Not sure. We have a whole drawer of packaged ones so I just pick a new one every month of so.

2. Name one person who made you smile today.
My mother who got me into a movie she was watching that had Mr T in it and Corben Burson. I watched about a half hour of it before I realize it was some religious piece of crap where the world had only one government with crazy eyed Nick Mancoso as its charismatic leader. A woman it put on trial for believing in Jeebus - they called it the 'Trial Against God'. (ugh) I missed the beginning, caught the scenes of riots and fighting and action with Mr T and then WHAMMO - I got hit with that heavy handed concept as the leader of the world turns out to be...wait for it....THE DEVIL. How could the world have known? He had charm and was against Jeebus.I almost crapped my pants and she laughed and laughed and told me that Mr T was a really good actor and that once you abandon Jeebus you get Nick Mancuso. We were like two movie reviewers with her thumb up and mine way down. I think I cut off my thumb so I could drop it in a deep well because my 'thumbs down' didn't go down far enough.

3. What were you doing at 8 am this morning?
Watching '7' - Going through a Morgan Freeman stage right now.

4. What were you doing 45 minutes ago?
Watching that stupid Jeebus movie. Time I will never get back.

5. What is your favorite candy bar?
You may remember years ago they had a candy bar called 'WIG WAG' those were totally great out of the freezer. The still make it but its called a 'Curly Wurly'

Bonus Question Jaquandor Made Up: What no-longer-available candy would you bring back?
Black Cat Bubble Gum

6. Have you ever been to a strip club?
Sure I have. The best was a biker strip club in Edmonton called the 'Burlesque Palace' which had stood as a 'speak easy' since the city was very young. Really beat up and grungy but great place to have fun with my mates.

7. What is the last thing you said aloud?
"WTF" - "She is on trial for praying to JEEBUS? That would NEVER happen. Did they mention at the beginning that all this secularism was Obama's fault because you KNOW the wingnuts who made this crap believe that?" Then I went into a long confusing stream of consciousness rant about how I had been 'duped' or I was being indoctrinated ala 'Machurian Candidate" into their Jeebus movie cabal. My mother just laughed at asked me what other movies was that nice Mr. T in?

8. What is your favorite ice cream? How to choose?
Vanilla caramel with praline candy chunks in it.

9. What was the last thing you had to drink?
The blood of my enemies out of an authentic WW1 German Helmet (You know the one with the spike at the top?)

10. Do you like your wallet?
Actually I do. Its the same beautifully worked in leather wallet I made for my father way back at the World Scout Jamboree on Prince Edward Island in 1972. That was some FINE piece of wallet making to stand the test of time.

11. What was the last thing you ate?
3 packaged 'on-the-go' vegi spring rolls

12. Have you bought any new clothing items this week?
A cape which I hear are coming back into style.

13. The last sporting event you watched?
CFL Grey Cup game

14. What is your favorite flavor of popcorn?
Plain with some salt as the gods and Orville Reddenbacker intended

15. Who is the last person you sent a text message to?
I am an unapologetic Luddite about cell phones and texting. I didn't spend years honing my near mythic typing skills to go backwards by using only my thumbs. Its barbaric. I can't. I won't. Its akin to going from full satellite TV back to peasant vision.

16. Ever go camping?
All the time. Love to camp in the mountains in winter too and do that every couple of years with the snowmachines.

17. Do you take vitamins daily?
Well I AM a 'Flintstone's Kid' - 10 million strong and growing.

18. Do you go to church every Sunday?
The only way I would ever go through those door is with a can of gasoline and a match

19. Do you have a tan?
With all the beautiful sunny days we get up here in Winter how could I not have one? I burn quick so its a sun hat and bonnet with long pants and a bee keepers hood for me.

20. Do you prefer Chinese food over pizza?
Pizza seems to me to be a better taste and eating experience. But I like both.

21. Do you drink your soda with a straw?
Only with fountain pop.

22. What did your last text message say?
I don't know because if they sent it, I didn't get it.

23. What are you doing tomorrow?
Same thing I do every tomorrow Pinky - try to take over the world!

24 - favorite color?

25. Look to your left; what do you see?
My way out if they come for me.

I also love how close he gets if not for Pinky. But does Brain REALLY want to take over the world?

*le sigh*

As I'm typing this I have a set of 2' tall Pinky and the Brain statues staring me in the face. They sit right by my monitor. Frankly, there aren't enough P&B posts out in Blogaritaville. Thanks, Cal!

Yes, thank you! I will never understand how text messages are some sort of technological progress. 100 years later and we're back to the telegraph again?

WIG WAG! I thought they were called Wig Wam and I loved them! My mom always said they were an outside chocolate bar because there was no way we were going to drop bits of chocolate all over the house. They were as cool as slamming the McIntosh toffee against the sidewalk!
