Question of the week.

Most of the time, I use a book called "Little Book of Stupid Questions", as the source for Question of the Week. This week I am getting my question from a fun board game we have called "Zobmondo - That Crazy 'Would You Rather' Game". The object of the game is to advance to the middle of the game board, by predicting how friends will answer outrageous, gross, thought-provoking, and hilarious "would you rather" questions. For the questions, there are five categories: Pain/Fear/Discomfort, Appearance/Embarrassment, Food/Ingestion, Ethics/Intellect, and Random. We have only played it 4-5 times and I don't think we've ever used the game board! We always end up going through all the question cards and debating/laughing/talking about all the wierd questions.
So, we'll see if one of these questions is fun to do for Question of the Week. It comes from the Food/Ingestion Category:


Would you rather: While dining in a restaurant, catch a glimpse of a dead rat -OR- catch the chef sneezing into his hands while preparing the food?

Oh, if I have to, I'd go with the sneezing. A dead rat would freak me out!

I think I would choose the sneezing chef over the rat. It seems more likely that you could get seriously ill from the rat.

I would think that cooking the food that the chef sneezed on would probably kill the germs. So I would go with the sneezing chef. Seeing rodents around food products is discusting. When I worked at IGA I saw a few mice and rats running around the floor of the bakery and I NEVER EVER ate a donut from there again. Yuck!

If the dead rat were on the floor in a corner, I think I would choose that scenario. Seems you would be more directly and quickly affected by the sneezing. (This guy doesn't keep a very clean operation!)

I actually did see a live rat walking on the counter in the very humble home of a person in the Philippines who had just served us a snack!

And we often frequented a "restaurant" where the owner let his scroungy dog wander around inside. But, hey, we could get fillet mignon steak and onions for $2.00.

Oh great! When I was little, my friend Jeni and I would go to IGA AT LEAST once a week and buy two donuts to eat! Ewwww!

I'd take either of those over a seeing a sneezing rat or a dead chef in the kitchen.

WOW that is a tough one. I would say sneezing since possibly all the germs would be killed in the cooking process. BLAH RATS!! Ewww
