48 Really Dumb Questions

December 11th, 2009 by Editor B

These are my answers (from about a month ago) to a really dumb chain e-mail which I got from a really close friend. I’m posting this here just for fun but please, if you get the e-mail, don’t propagate it. Invent something better. These questions are really dumb even for a goofy “getting to know you” meme. I mean, who really cares about the color of the shirt I’m wearing? For the record, even though I answered this thing, I did not forward it on to anyone.
