Hello readers, joining in with Sonofabeach96 (here).
In this challenge, the host is looking for follies or humor in ads (see below for more details).
#1: Digital Food
I saw this sign looking at the
China shit little gadgets at a local grocery store.
I read the box and was puzzled: DIGITAL FOOD?
What is digital food? Is it like the virtual cake (here) from Joey?
Is it zeros and ones on a plate – if so – they do NOT need to be dehydrated. Ha!
I know what they meant: digital dehydrator for food….
#1: Who would you beat up? Really???
I bought these pack of cups on sale and had them in my teacher/workshop bin. I knew the questions would be good conversation starters and they sat for over a year until the right chance came up to use them.
I was shocked to read that one of the questions was, “If you could go back to high school, who would you beat up?”
As a former counselor, we don’t use questions like this. It is aggressive and more on the negative side; consequently, we might ask, “Who would you confront?” – Something like that.
However, the small group that utilized these cups (all adults) seemed to love the question. I was shocked that a company would print that question – but the people in that particular group liked the question and it led to some rich chatting about past experiences.
Anyhow, the cup questions were fun and I think the THG & Co. had a good idea with these Conversation Cups.
My question was: “How would you title your auto-biography? My answer: “Just a girl from Buffalo.”
We all had the chance to answer every question and for the super power question, I would be one of the wonder twins.
What about you?
What super power would you want – and/or what would be the title for your auto-biography. ((It is okay if you do not want to leave your answer here, because all this self-disclosure could come back to haunt you (sort of kidding) but do think about it… especially the auto-biography – because we all have a story that is our very own.))
Is there another question from the “cup questions” that you liked?
Hidden talent, cartoon character, etc.
Well that is all for me – time for some food that is not even close to being “digital food” – ha
