Answering Life's Questions One Blog Post At A Time

My bestie Amber over at Raising Rascals posed a question at the end of her post today that may well be one of the most important questions of our time.  After much pondering of the enormity of the question before me and much thoughtful consideration and careful study, I believe I can answer said question.

The question posed by the infamous Rascal Raiser was this:

If you were forced to transform into a toy for the rest of your life, which toy would you be?  Why?

My immediate thought was "Why, Malibu Barbie, of course!"

Who wouldn't want to be unrealistically, perfectly beautiful and live in a Dream House and drive a cool pink convertible?  But then I thought, "Do I really want to try to maintain perfection the rest of my life?"

Nah.  And let's face it, Ken is just way to metrosexual for my taste.  Now G.I. Joe, there's a manly man!

So then I thought, "Mrs. Potato Head.  That's it!"  She doesn't have to worry about her figure because, hello, SHE'S A POTATO!"  And when Mr. Potato Head gets on her nerves she can don her angry eyes and rip his lips off.

Ok, so maybe that's a little too violent.

And then it hit me...

I'd be a Slinky!

What could be better than that?!  No one really expects too much out of a Slinky.  It does one thing and does it really well so there's no pressure.  AND someone always carries it UPSTAIRS and it only has to go DOWN by itself and even then it just has to let gravity do its thing.

It's the ultimate in laziness.

I love it.

And now you have that obnoxious song stuck in your head.

You're welcome.

Unless you are the slinky owned by my Sam and get yourself hopelessly tangled up in your springy coils.

I don't know what's funnier....Wes's comment or, well, Wes's comment.


Slinkys. I heart Slinkys.

Hilarious...gotta love a man with a sense of humor, no?!

I love your pick and the ONLY reason I picked Barbs for the massive amounts of clothing that only cost $3.49 for an entire outfit.

Lisa, I love how you are thinky even when you are trying to decide what toy you would want to be!!!

Me? I'm gonna be shallow and stick with Malibu Barbie!!

Love $3.49 outfits!!

But you won't last long!! At least you wouldn't at this house. We'd have your insides turned outside within 5 minutes.

Congratulations on being married to Joe.

Way to go, Wes! I'd totally dig being married to GI Joe. Besides, Barbie has all the haters with which to contend.
