Questions (Not) By Casper #47
Random Twitter Q&A
April 19, 2023
Once upon a time, there was a man named Casper who lived on Twitter and asked lots of great questions. He asked and I would answer, thus Questions By Casper was born. But then one day, he vanished and I had to find another source for my Q&As. Well, Twitter stepped up and now provides me with lots of random questions. It’s not Casper anymore, but it’s still lots of great fun. Now it’s Questions (Not) By Casper. And it all starts right now. Let’s go.
If you go on a date with a single mom, are you obligated to buy the kids dinner as well?
If the date is you and the mom, then no, you’re only obligated to buy for yourself and the Mom. If it’s a family deal and you’ve invited the entire family, then you would pick up the tab, but unless the kids are part of the day, they’re not your responsibility.
If a woman breaks off an engagement, is she obligated to give back the engagement ring?
Unless there are insinuating circumstances, like the man cheating on a faithful fiance or something major involved, I would say yes, that the woman should give back the ring, no questions asked.
If you could pick between $500,000 tomorrow or 5 Million Dollars in the next ten years, which would you choose?
Are we talking about a structured settlement plan of $500,000 a year for the next ten years, a lump sum at the end of the period, or what? I’d have to see the details and fine print before making such an important decision. Oh, who the hell am I kidding? Give me the five million. I’ll figure out the rest as I go along.
Do you drink your soda with ice or not?
Considering that 99.995% of the time, I drink from a bottle, it’s without the ice. It’s hard to fit ice cubes down that narrow hole at the top of the bottle so I just go without.
Should Drivers Be Allowed To Plow Protestors Illegally On The Interstate?
Protesters? They look like speed bumps to me. If a person is illegally blocking a highway, they deserve what they get and that would be run down and flattened. And they deserve it for being idiots.
What have you started to dislike more as you get older?
People. No explanation is needed.
Have you ever encountered a Karen or Kevin?
I’ve worked in customer service and retail for over forty years now. What do you think?
What’s a song by Elvis Presley that you like?
I have many favorites by Elvis, such as Love Me Tender, In The Ghetto, and Suspicious Minds, but my favorite is and will always be this one right here, Don’t Cry, Daddy.
Let’s create a supergroup for all time. Who are you choosing for:
Best Drummer: Tommy Lee
Best Guitarist: Slash
Best Bassist: Joe Perry
Best Singer: Alice Cooper
Do you live in a red or blue state, and why?
I live in a purple state where we usually send Republicans to Washington, but have Democrats in control at the Governor’s Mansion. It’s a special kind of crazy to be sure.
What have you started to appreciate more the older you get?
Spankings and naps. I hated them as a kid, but now, they’re two of my favorite things. Spank me Daddy and send me to my room! Woof!
You can only pick one band or artist to see live this summer. Who would you pick?
Alice Cooper and Rob Zombie will be in Raleigh, NC this coming August. I want to go. I need to go. I will go.
What is the greatest candy of all time?
Either jelly beans or the baby Snickers. I won’t say no to either.
Do you believe in ghosts?
I do believe in the supernatural, aliens, and things that go bump in the night. There are plenty of things out there we can’t explain, and besides, I’ve seen and encountered enough weirdness to know they’re real.
If you were granted 3 wishes and no loopholes, only 3 wishes, what would you wish for?
Health & happiness for my friends and family, success in the writing field for myself, and common sense to mean something again and take the place of the craziness that seems to have taken over the world.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. And with that, it’s time to wrap things up. Take care and be well, my friends. I’ll see you in the funny papers.
