Tossing Salt Presents:
Questions By Casper #60
December 15, 2020
Over in the world of Twitter, I found a man that likes to ask questions. And I do mean a lot of them. His name is Tyler “The Ghost” Casper and he’s at @tyler_casper. A good guy that you should go check out. Now, as I was saying, he likes to ask questions. I like to answer them and it provides content for the site. So here we are. Every few days, I go down his feed and copy the inquiries he’s asked. And then it’s here for the answers. It’s insightful, thought-provoking, and hopefully entertaining for you, the reader, as well. So let’s can the chit chat and let’s do this. Are you ready? And away we go…
Marvel or DC?
Are we talking about comics or the movie/TV presentations? For comics, I have always been more of a Marvel guy. I like some DC characters, but Marvel was always more realistic in my opinion. As for TV and movies, DC has found the Genie in the bottle for television. Marvel did a great job with the Netflix series, but for the most part, their television products have been less than interesting. As for the movies, the MCU is a thousand percent better than the DC attempts. Wonder Woman was good and I have high hopes for Suicide Squad II, but the Justice League movie and the most recent Batman/Superman films were hard to watch.
Are you optimistic about being a pessimist, or pessimistic about being an optimist?
Have you ever done a “Polar Plunge”?
Hell no. I don’t like cold water and I sure as hell ain’t jumping into any intentionally. My ass would freeze and die.
What is something you’d never buy at a garage sale?
Underwear, sex toys, and children.
What is something you’d never sell at a garage sale?
Underwear, sex toys, and children.
How often do you buy new shoes?
I was averaging about once a year, but now that I have these two customized boots on my messed up feet, I don’t have to buy shoes anymore.
How often do you change towels?
Every time I do laundry, probably two to three times a week.
Do you ever use the lock confirmation on your vehicle to find it in a crowded parking lot?
I wish I could, but my truck is almost twenty-five years old. There is no such device on my vehicle.
Do you ever get cash out when you purchase at a store?
Get cash back? Not often, but it does happen if I’m going to the comic book shop afterward or some place I need to have real money instead of my card.
If you’re drinking pure water, what does it taste like?
Pure water. What else?
Have you ever actually seen someone “in the funny pages”?
I’ve seen images of people that I know used in comics and cartoons. Would that counnt?
What is your favorite salty snack?
Your boyfriend. Or maybe he’s your ex by now. I can’t keep up. He says that he’s always been single.
Have you ever been written about in a paper?
Yeppers, but I still deny the charges. I was framed.
Have you ever written for a paper?
I’ve written for a website. Several of them in fact. Would that count? And I’ve had many letters published in the local newspaper. That was pretty cool.
Have you ever been swindled?
Lied to and stolen from by someone I thought was trustworthy. Unfortunately, yes.
What TV show do you think it would be great to be in?
Whatever show my buddy Brent ends up writing and directing for television when he decides to take that step and share even more of himself and his talent with the world. I want to play a cranky, anti-social pervert who writes an advice column for a website. I want to play myself. And if Brent doesn’t get on the ball soon and give me a TV role, I’ll just be content with a spot on The Conners as DJ’s weird new friend.
How do you feel about stained glass windows?
They’re beautiful things and inspiring.
What is something that chocolate doesn’t go well with?
If you could have dinner with anyone from any time period… Who would it be?
My Grandma Vick and Harley Race.
Is your bark worse than your bite?
My bark isn’t really all that bad. And it takes a lot to make me bite, but believe me, if it gets to that point, someone has had a very bad day.
What is something that chocolate goes great with?
If you were an antique, what kind of an antique would you be?
Something very old, very odd, and fragile, no doubt.
Have you ever went antiquing?
Is that picking up old guys on Grindr? Maybe.
Have you ever had chocolate covered cheese?
That sounds very disgusting.
If you were a cookie, what kind would you be?
Probably oatmeal raisin. People see me, think they’re getting a chocolate chip, and then, surprise mother fucker!
Do you use the first couple of sheets of a roll of TP in a public bathroom? Or do you throw it away?
I try not to use a public bathroom if it can be avoided, but if I have to wipe, I use all the paper available.
Why are people so quick to condemn things they know nothing about?
Because people are idiots.
What is your favorite non politically correct thing to say?
Probably to call everyone a cock-smoker or say that they can “suck a dick!”. I’m gay so that makes it even more ironic that I’d use those terms.
Have you ever accidentally microwaved something with metal in or on it?
Yeah, but it wasn’t an accident. I was bored and curious.
And there you go. My thanks to Casper for the questions and to you for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions you’d like to ask about anything, feel free to drop me a line. Until the next time, take care of yourself and watch out for the Covid. I’ll see you on the flip side.
