It’s the world’s oldest meme, I’m sure. You know, the question about, if you could invite anyone living or dead to dinner at your house, who are the three people you’d invite? Invariably most people end up saying Jesus, Abraham Lincoln, and Oprah. Or, some combination including one of those three people.
So, let’s get out of that box and invite some other people. Me, I’d have Ralph Nader, my late grandmother and Wilie Nelson to dinner. Why? Well, I remember in my childhood how much my grandma griped about Ralph Nader. One time she was saying that she’d give me some iodine for whatever was ailing me, but “that stupid Ralph Nader put an end to that.” I still don’t know what that was all about, but the amusement factor could be great there.
And Willie? Well, I’d invite him to see the Willie Nelson Mii I made on my Wii and see if he’d play Wii Music with me. And, he and I could tee hee about my grandma battling with Ralph Nader. Good times, people, good times.
So, let’s hear your dinner invitees and why.
