Friday's feast #24

The chef is still on holidays, so it was
Gattina who came to the rescue this week. And her Feast is a funny one! Here are my answers to those questions that nobody should be asking:

Appetizer - Can you cry under water?
Of course! In fact, that's the only place where I cry, because nobody can notice. My kids were asking me the other day how come they had never seen me cry (especially after my father died); now they know the secret. Every time I go to the pool or take a shower, I weep. :-)

Soup - Why does a round pizza come in a square box?
Well, because it would be very difficult -and messy- to do it the other way around! I mean, how would you ever fit a square pizza in a rounded box?

Salad - If a person with multiple personalities threatens suicide, is that considered a hostage situation?
Interesting question. I can answer with some authority, since I claim to have 17 personalities; one of them -a beautiful little old lady from Sweden called Inga- suggested she might try to hurt herself, but the rest of us talked her out of it. It was a good thing we didn't need to employ any force.

Main Course - What hair colour do they put on the driver's license of a bald man?
How about 'skin'? Or maybe 'None'. Yeah, that would go better.
Reminded me of a cartoon published in the school paper when I was in high school. Drawn by a friend, it showed me having a physical examination for the then mandatory military service. The dialog went like this:

Me: Gabriel.
Doctor: Age?
Me: 17
Doctor: Height?
Me: 1.82 m
Doctor: Sex?
Me: Hopefully, one day...

Dessert - When you're driving and looking for an address, do you turn down the volume on the radio?
Well, because I'm a man, and I can only do one thing at the same time. Think of me like DOS 3.2 in an MS Windows world. Now we have a GPS, courtesy of our friends the Chamorros, so we will never get lost again. Whenever we have 'her' talk in Spanish, we call our GPS "Ramona". If she's in English, then her name becomes "Jennifer".

Well, that was my effort for today. Hope you had fun!

  1. I think I will be the first and last one to comment on this FF lol ! Apparently it was only made for people from Waterloo ! You were the only one who participated ! I think people just didn't read the comments since it was already the 2nd week of holidays.
    Your answers are very funny ! Thanks for the laugh !

  2. Querido Gabriel, te he dejado en mi sitio, un pequeño y humilde obsequio blogeril. Y de paso saludarte y desearte un excelente fin de semana!
