Thanks to Jonathan, Suebob, Dave and Becky for their responses. I think I touched a nerve with this one - sorry Dave!

Now it's your turn. Please feel free to leave your answers in the comments...
  1. If you were given a $700 billion bailout, what would you do first?
  2. How will the Big 3 CEO's get to Washington next?
  3. What's your fallback career - Stripper, sign twirler or professional blogger?
  4. Finish this sentence: My 401K...
And as always, if you'd like to participate, leave me a comment and let me know.

UPDATE - I just realized that my answer to the CEO's question doesn't make any sense. I'm too tired to fix it, so it'll just have to go on making me sound stupid.

I just assumed that the mistresses would give them a ride!

1. I'd buy France.
2. Probably 495.
3. Definitely a stripper.
4. My 401K is under my mattress.

thanks for having me contribute this week...it was fun!

off to kick myself for forgetting to look under avitable's bed, although in my defense i sort of expected to find a bound and gagged midget with stacks of porn magazines.

Avitable - It kind of works, but not perfectly

HHN - I'm sure those are under the bed with his 401K too.

First time caller, long time listener.

What a fabulous box! My answers:

1. George Clooney.
2. They'll ride my ass (and won't even pull my hair-that's the least they could do, ya know).
3. A stripper who twirls a sign and live-blogs the whole thing for pay.
4. I have not had the heart to check it. Ignorance is bliss.

CLOONEY! Of course! Why didn't I think of that.

Brandon said...

Ginger - Thanks for stopping by! So you're like me and don't even want to know. I'm not going to do anything with it for years and years, why do I care?

Alphadaddy - I think everybody is rethinking their answer.

1. Spend it all on a single lollipop. I am assuming that by the time I get a $700 billion bailout our inflation rate will have risen to levels similar to Zimbabwe's and that is all I will be able to afford.

2. A throne lashed together from the mangled bones and flesh of their former employees. Or maybe just ponies. Apocalypse ponies.

3. Sign twirler. I just want to be like Bret.

4. My what now?

Your CEO answer totally makes sense to me...

I'm too scared to check my 403(b). Thanks for bringing it up, though.
