Today's Viral Facebook Question

"If you were stranded on an island with three celebrities, which three would you choose?"

Predictably, some of my FB pals said Jesus.  At first I was just disgusted that they couldn't even play a simple game without invoking the deity, but then I realized...

You wouldn't starve, because he'd rain down loaves and fishes
You would have wine, made from seawater
You could walk on water to get back to civilization when you got tired of fish and wine.

Sounds like a deal.  I wouldn't pick him, though.  Too preachy and there's nothing in the Bible about him every washing anything but his feet.  Stinky crazy preacher, yech.

I think I'd rather pick one of those home improvement dudes and Wolfgang Puck to provide the victuals, and then a (male) porn star for entertainment.  One who could hunt and fish would be a bonus.

Christopher Lee, Boris Karloff, and Vincent Price. We might end up starving, that is, right up until Karloff gets that wicked trademark gleam in his eye and makes an oblique reference to the Donner Party... and that's where the fun would really begin. >)

I always hate those type of quiz's because there isn't any celebrity that knows jack about any kind o'schite!!
Its possible I'm wrong as there are many that have some interesting personal lives, its just that is not what you hear about and so do not know anything about.
I answered one such quiz by saying IndyJones, CrocDundee, and LauraCroft and the others started to say the star names and I said no the actual characters cuz the stars are a waste of resources.

If "celebrities" includes fictional characters such as Jesus, I'd pick Albus Dumbledore for starters. He could do all the same magic tricks as Jesus and more -- probably including getting off the island.

Most actual celebrities seem so vacuous that within 15 minutes I'd be pining for the solace of solitude.
