Totally Normal: A QUIZ!

I just took a Facebook quiz: “How weird are you.” Turns out, I’m totally normal! However, I dispute the author’s science. I don’t think it was calibrated to my particular brand of weird. Or maybe I’m just not weird enough for Facebook?

That last sentence is now copyrighted to me. You can only use it if you send me $5.

So, anyway, I thought I’d use this space to find out just what “normal” means to those who read my blog. What is “normal” anyway, to you? It’s a relative term, subject to interpretation within whatever particular subset of society you live within. Or outside.

To help, here are some questions I came up with after much *scientific research. Answer quickly with the first thing that comes to mind. Please email your responses to me, and I will post the results on Monday! Send to terry@mothermirth.com

The how $normal are you QUIZ!

And remember, this is for posterity, so be honest.

1. Is there a TV in your home, and if so, how many hours of television do you watch per day? The, umm, TV has to be plugged in and ON, and cannot just be a flowerpot. If you have used a sledgehammer on your TV, or put your foot or other object through the TV, you may skip this question and skip right to question #6.

2. Karl Rove is a douchebag? Yes  No  Discussion?

3. What does your bumper sticker read?

4. On the morning of election day, what will you be having for breakfast?

5. Can you snark in more than one language? Pig Latin totally counts here.

6. Humble pie, or Schadenfreude Pie?

7. Cake or death?

8. What would Sarah Palin’s 6th child be named?

9. Could you, would you, with a fox? Discuss.

10. What’s the weirdest thing you recycle/grow in your yard/create using art/call a hobby?

-Terry
Not weird enough for Facebook.

*”Scientific research” is also a relative phrase. My next quiz will thoroughly explore this fact. And the one after that will fully explore “fact.”

  1. 1. I have a radio with an internet connection.

    2. Douchebag is too kind. How about “He Who Eats Children and Craps Brimstone?” Or how about just plain “Dirty Hypocritical Liar?”

    3. It doesn’t read anything. My bumper sticker is illiterate.

    4. Hope Flakes

    5. I can snark in snarkish. I can also think in Klingon.

    6. I actually prefer Scheherazade pie.

    7. Death Cake. It’s made with Oreos, lard, and Sarah Palin’s fingernail clippings.

    8. Darth Rover

    9. I would not, could not, with a fox unless (of course) I were smeared with lox. That and spread on a bagel.

    10. Dollar weeds

    We have a TV. It is in a closed entertainment center, so not visible unless on. We do not have cable and never have. Rio is allowed to watch one DVD (about an hour) of kids programming (with no ads) each day. Most days she forgets. Occassionally she barters two days worth of TV time for the right to watch as many DVDs as she wants. We call this “watching TV all day” even though it usually only lasts a few hours. We do it when she’s not feeling well and its raining, or something like that. Mostly because I have really fond memories of spending whole days on the couch watching movies with my family, wrapped in the same blanket she wraps up in when she does it now.

    2. Karl Rove is a douchebag? Yes No Discussion?
    Why insult a douchebag. His name has become a common noun for “slimy political tactics”.

    One says “Obama 08”. The other says “Plant a Seed”

    4. On the morning of election day, what will you be having for breakfast?
    Whole wheat blueberry pancakes. We eat them every day for breakfast.

    5. Can you snark in more than one language? Pig Latin totally counts here.
    nope.

    No got TV.

    2. Karl Rove is a douchebag? Yes No Discussion?

    I don’t see why any discussion would be necessary.

    No got bumper sticker.

    4. On the morning of election day, what will you be having for breakfast?

    It’s a Tuesday, which is when we have bagels at work, so, a bagel.

    5. Can you snark in more than one language? Pig Latin totally counts here.

    Maybe French, on a really good day.

    6. Humble pie, or Schadenfreude Pie?

    Humble pie. Schadenfreude pie is less bitter, but really bad for you.

    8. What would Sarah Palin’s 6th child be named?

    Trailer-Hitch.

    9. Could you, would you, with a fox? Discuss.

    A fox in the zoological sense, or the pulchritudinous sense?

    Paying too much attention to trains and maps and things like that, probably.
