This one kindly requested from ruleofstupid an interesting and talented human being.
At your perfect dinner party, who are your guests and why (anyone from any time in history)
I have embellished on the theme somewhat..
Here it goes…
“Dinner is served in the dining room please, if you’ll come this way”. “I have put name cards of where you are sitting”.
“Just as we should cultivate more gentle and peaceful relations with our fellow human beings, we should also extend that same kind of attitude towards the natural environment. Morally speaking, we should be concerned for our whole environment”.
So Dalai what your trying to tell me is I shouldn’t have used cardboard..from paper..and shouldn’t have cut down the tree?
“I’m late. I’m late. For a very important date. No time to say “Hello, Goodbye”. I’m late, I’m late, I’m late.”
“No you aren’t late at all, now would you PLEASE take your seat and stop jumping on the table”.
“I did the Ed Sullivan show four times. I did the Steve Allen show. I did the Jackie Gleason show”.
“That’s really cool King, however the dinner will get cold if we don’t start”.
“There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.”
“Right then Blanche I’ll get that immediately then shall I, or shall a serve you up a dead parakeet under glass instead!?”
“People hate me because I am a multifaceted, talented, wealthy, internationally famous genius.”
“Tickets on yourself Jerry?”
“Charles dear, use the Royal Flight; they keep one plane on permanent standby, in case I should kick the bucket.”
“What??? You haven’t even touched your food yet!”
“If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.”
“No shit Sherlock – I mean Einstien, how about you shutting it and eat?!”
“My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don’t know”.
“Yep- we got it, he’s Einstein – your Sherlock what you don’t know is that you’ll get a clip in the ear if you don’t start eating”!
“It is not these well-fed long-haired men that I fear, but the pale and the hungry-looking”.
“Give me strength they wouldn’t be hungry looking Julias if they would start eating!”
“When you don’t have any money, the problem is food. When you have money, it’s sex. When you have both, it’s health. If everything is simply jake, then you’re frightened of death”.
“I am starting to lose it here people – there IS food there – in front of you – and why Marilyn are you bringing up sex?!”
“That’s not nice Santa now eat”.
”Some hae meat and canna eat, And some wad eat that want it; But we hae meat, and we can eat, And sae the Lord be thanket.”
“What the… ok I’m sure Burnsy wasn’t on my invitation list and if you will kindly notice there IS MEAT!”
“He was a man of an unbounded stomach”.
“How can you say that Henry when he has’ne even touched his food!”
“Young people in particular, I appeal to you: bear witness to your faith through the digital world!….Employ these new technologies to make the Gospel known, so that the Good News of God’s infinite love for all people, will resound in new ways across our increasingly technological world!”
“Ok who the hell is sending text messages at the dinner table, you’ve set Benedict off again”.
“I feast on wine and bread, and feasts they are”.
“Michael …sweety… I have provided MORE than wine and bread here”.
Perhaps the next one will be more serious….
Excellent – A very creative approach Lady Rambly. Now you have a guest list – what one question would you want to ask each of them? (no changing guests!)
Thank you – Lady Rambly now is it – I guess having a dinner party such as the above I would have to have a Title of sorts.
Grrr…*giggling* thank you!.. I’m in the middle of doing the serious dinner party one now, but shall take on the challenge gladly….Sir Panda?
