Recycling Memes Again

Well, operation better blogging has gone a step in the right direction seeing as, unlike yesterday, I am managing to make a blog post the day after my last one. Yay!

I'm thinking of resorting to my old standby, to spark the spirit back into my blogging.

Which means yet again, I'm recycling this meme AGAIN to get my creative juices flowing:

I'm gonna make a list of 10 characters, it is a secret list. If you want, comment to this post with a question like, "2 and 8 have a dance off, who wins?" and then I answer them in a separate post and it is the most fun meme ever. And you can ask as many questions as you like.


It's lazy sure, but it's been a couple of months and my answers usually seem to amuse you, and your questions always make me laugh, so it's a feel good endeavor on both sides.

So, well, please ask me something! :-)

    Due to an unfortunate interaction with the Mega-Mind-Swap 2000(tm), 4 and 7's minds end up in each other's body. Who is happier about this?

    Also, why is 2 looking suspiciously pleased?

    1 and 6 lose whatever makes them unique. How do they fare in the world? Does it bring them closer?

    1, 3, 5 and 7 go on a double date. Who is dating who, and how does it go? 9 intrudes and manages to ruin it. Why and how?

    2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 are having a night of super-heroe movies. Who picks what to watch and why?

    Lex Luthor continues the cloning experiments that created Superboy, this time combining the DNA of 2 and 4: Is the resulting offspring a hero? Wil he or she join a team?

    3, 5, 9, and 10 must all compete on Iron Chef. Who makes what, who sets the stage on fire, and who manages to eke out a win?

    2, 4, 6, and 8 play Monopoly. Who steals the most money from the bank, who buys up one solid fourth of the board and actually bothers to build up hotels bleeding everyone else dry, who spends half the game in jail, and who wanders off in boredom never to return?

    1 and 7 must each invent new, never before tasted ice cream flavors. What do they come up with?

    For numbers 1,2,3, and 10
    Pulp theme: Who gets to be the bare chested hero, who gets to be the plucky sidekick in man panties, who's the damsel in distress, and who's the black leather wearing villian?

    #9, 4, 5, and 6
    Plan 9 Version: Who is the zombie in the low cut dres, who's the hulking undead cop, who's the alien who screams "Stupid minds!" and who's the brave yet boring pilot?

    #7, 8, 1, 3
    Universal horror: Who's the misguided monster, who's the fainting woman, who's leading the torch weilding mob, and who's using science!?

    #6, 2, 4, 5
    Italian zombie: Who gets bitten and doesn't tell anyone, who gets buck naked for a swin in shark infested water, who has the "this can't happening!" breakdown, and who gets ripped apart in a graphic shot?

    #6's world is destoryed in a Crisis. Only three worlds exist now. Do they got to Earth-4 (Charlton comics), Earth-5 (Fawcet), or Earth-10 (Quality, home of the Spirit and Uncle Sam)?

    Oooh, I love these.

    One and eight face off across a fooseball table. Who cares more about winning? Who actually wins? Is it still intact by the end?

    Nine and seven, looking through other realities, find one in which they are happily married to each other. One or both might or might not be genderswapped and the world is pretty weird, but each is still recognizable as his/her/its self. How do they feel about that?

    Five and ten, after a night neither of them remember, find that they've gone and joined the army. Assuming they have no other pressing engagements, what do they do?

    Two and three end up getting to redesign each others' costumes/clothing. Do they do their best, or try to make the other look like a clown? How do the end products look?

    Four and six. If they both end up on a mundane planet like our Earth, who gets in the news first?

    Odd numbers are forced to band together against Cthulu or an equivalent; one and three are the most reluctant, but in the end they agree to work with the others. How does that work out? Do they win, or is the world doomed?

    Even numbers enter into a barehanded unicorn-catching contest. Assuming no cheating, who would win? If none of them, or more than one, is a virgin, who has the purest mind?

    2 has a box under the bed; what's in it, and how long has 2 had it?

    I'm making snacks later -- does 5 have any preferences? Any allergies?

    And I want to give 10 the gift of a magazine subscription, but I have no idea which one to get! Help!

    What does Carmen SanDiego steal from 2, 5, 8, and 10, and how does 3 stop her?

    5 and 6 meet the versions of themselves from an alternate universe that have swapped identities and/or roles. What are Alter-5 and Alter-6 like? What do Original-5 and Original-6 think of them?

    1, 4, and 7 have to design transforming robot bodies for themselves and place their minds inside for a year. (They don't have to deal with the technical aspects (although they may want to), just the basic design.) What does each transform into? How does each deal with it? (For bonus points, how did this ridiculous situation come about?)

    10 forces 9 and 3 to enter a steeplechase in England. The horses are uncooperative in entertaining ways. Does anybody win?

    Ellen DeGeneres pulls out of American Idol at the last minute for personal reasons. 6 is recruited to take her place. Just what sort of judge is 6?

    8 starts taking salsa dancing lessons. How much is 5 laughing?

    Does #4 dig giant robots?

    #6 is thrown back to the 1960's How do they react?

    #9 is thrown back to the 1860's. How do they react?

    numbers 1,2,3, and 4 form a wrestling stable. Who's the leader, which two form the tag team, and which is the midcarder? Bonus question: (5-10) who acts as the manager and who is the arm candy valet?

    An addition to the wrestling question, what do they call themselves?

    #5 is being scouted by the X-Men, Avengers, and the Fantastic Four. Which team does he/she join?

    #10 is being scouted by the JLA, JSA, the Titians, the Doom Patrol, and Birds of Prey. Which team does he/she join?

    numbers 1,3,7,9 walk into Guy's place on Oa looking for work. What jobs do they end up with?

    Oh noes, #2 just knocked out Hal Jordan! What happens next?

    Somehow, #4 has been told they are the missing Summers brother. How do they react? Bonus points if number 4 is a woman.

    #5 is being chased by a muscled bound, cyborg enhance loon with a gun the size of a small whale who tells him/her that he is their son. The response?

    #10 gets a job hosting horror movies on a local access channel. What is the name of their show, and what kind of movies do they show?

    5,6,7, and 9 are playing Guitar Hero: World Tour.

    Who insists on doing vocals, who takes lead guitar, who plays drums, and who gets stuck with bass?

    Who overestimates their ability and chooses a difficulty higher than they can manage?

    Who would have preferred to play The Beatles: Rock Band most?

    Which one owns (or rented) the game, anyway?

    Yar, it be Talk Like a Pirate day!

    What is #4's pirate name?

    Does #7 indulge in the holliday, and if so, how do they spend it?

    Does it drive #2 crazy?

    1, 2, 8, and 9 have to help a High School put on a musical production of Man of La Mancha. Who directs, who makes the costumes, who choreographs and who acts as a guidance counselor to the stressed teenagers? And who steps in to play Sancho Panza on opening night when the actor playing him has food poisoning?

    3 and 7 are bound together by unbreakable magic handcuffs for one year. Which of the two is most inconvenienced by this? Which of the two gets used to the situation first? Would any hilarious romantic comedy-type situations ensue?

    4, 6 and 10 must gain the trust of Lex Luthor in under 48 hours, in order to learn a secret only he knows. How do they go about this? Would they work together or separately? Who prefers to go undercover and who insists they just try to beat it out of him?

    2 and 5 accidentally walk in on 4 and 7 in flagrante delicto. How does everyone respond?

    1 and 10 are convinced to set up rival Kissing Booths for charity at a County Fair - who makes the most money? Who does 8 choose to stand in line for? And why is 6 jealous?

    Lastly, 5, 6 and 9 wake up to find that they are now all physically identical copies of 3, albeit with their former powers and/or skills still intact. Who is most disturbed by this? Who is happiest about it? Who immediately attacks 3, demanding that he or she fix things? And once things calm down, how does 3 respond to now being part of an identical quartet?
