On the planet where I come from, it is sometimes fun to think about weird stuff like:
If I could be any cartoon character, living or dead, who would it be?
If Barbara Walters interviewed me, what kind of tree would I want to be?
A man walks into a bank to cash his check. By mistake the teller gives him his dollar amount in change, and his change amount in dollars. On the way home he spends a nickel, and now notices he has 2 times the amount of his check. How much was the check?
If I was cast in The Real World – Cancun next season, how long would it take before I was thrown off for exceeding both the maximum age and maximum weight limits (within five minutes)?
But those will have to wait for another time because I have four other fantasy questions to think about today!
