Jayman and I covered the Chick-fil-A/Gay Marriage controversy on Blog Talk Radio Wednesday, and if you missed it live, you can catch all the hilarity and poignancy of our points by listening in archives via the BTR Fun Machine:

The great thing about these lists, for me at least, is they're very fluid. I could do them again in two months and lots of my choices would change. Except Liver and Onions would NEVER show up on my favorites list.

Some excellent choices there. A lot of things in your top fives are in my top 10s. We're not so different, you and I.


Anonymous said...

Loved your lists too except lima beans and peas...uuch!! And you forgot Aaron Rodgers, aka, Cupcake! :) Missy

I'm With Stupid said...

Jayman: Oh I know...I had so many six, sevens, and eights that were in your lists, it was creepy, and you're lists could change with my mood in a month or days!! Cheers Jayman!!


I'm With Stupid said...

Miss: Why do you hate the Lima and the pea? What? Do they frighten you? Exalt the Lima; Love the pea!! Cheers Miss, you hater, you!!


Mike said...

You do a show on Chick-Fil-A and one of your categories isn't 5 favorite fruits?

Lima Beans? Really?

Gnetch said...

You should have heard me sing. I totally sound like Delores O’Riordan (probably when someone's sitting on her stomach and while she has a bad cold and hiccups because she's drunk).

Edita said...

Top 5 fave IWS comment box fillers? Come on, come on, spill.

Beth said...

I love Joey Goodbar! Love what you did with the wine list;)

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Interesting boy list.

You and Jay are very similiar but Jay has better taste in rock bands!

I'm With Stupid said...

Mike: Yes. Lima Beans. What is with all you Lima Bean haters!? Oh the humanity!! Cheers Mike!!


I'm With Stupid said...

Gnetch: If that is how you truly sound when you sing? Mmmmmm, that's HOT!! Cheers Gnetch!!


I'm With Stupid said...

Edita: A word of warning...Never mention "box fillers" and then tell me to spill. While yielding a temporary good feeling, it would only lead to heartache. Cheers Edita!!


I'm With Stupid said...

Beth: Joey Goodbar ROCKED!! And the wine list? Truth IS funnier than fiction. Cheers Schmoop!!


I'm With Stupid said...

Peg: Jay has better taste in bands? While I disagree, your statement may be correct if you poll folks at the local nursing homes. Cheers Peg!!


Dana said...

I'll sit down and share a "Top 5 Foods" meal with you any day, but I'll have to bring my own beer.


How could you???

Jo said...

We have a lot in common, which frightens me...except the lima bean is a pouch full of green evil.

What do you put on your liver & onions?

Millard Fillmore?! If lima beans could walk, they'd all be Millards.

I'm With Stupid said...

Dana: Hey now...You had plenty of Milwaukee's Best Light and if nothing else, it acts like an aphrodisiac as you know. Cheers Dana!!


I'm With Stupid said...

Jo: You? Me? Commonalities? That's HOT. On my liver and onions, I put, onions on top of my liver. Cheers Gorgeous One!!


Knight said...

My dad taught me to watch Napoleon Dynamite in Spanish. It's a whole new level of hilarious. He also taught me to eat cold Lima Beans out of a can. He is a smart man.

I'm With Stupid said...

Knight: Just based on those two facts, I know I would like him. Cheers Knight!!
