Would You Rather - Wednesday



There were some pretty good answers to last week's question!!

Matthew wins the award for being the first person to declare he didn't need to decide since he's so obviously BOTH. 

And ultimately, my thinking lined up with Chris' -- if I'm not smart enough to know how smart I'm not, I might as well be popular and enjoy it . . .  or something like that.

SMART , being the hands down winner last week, is coming back for Round 2:

Would you rather be . . . ?

A) Smart

or 

B) Highly Attractive

Hmmm...well, highly attractive sounds good. But if you're stupid, where the heck's that going to get you? Then, simply being smart can leave doors closed, too.

I'm going with a writer...because I can do that behind closed doors where no one sees me and be as stupid or smart as I want. Hee...

Really, smart.

Smart. Eventually your looks are going to fade unless you become a plastic surgery addict. Who needs that? And no one takes you seriously when you're dumb.

Candyland said...

Oh this is easy. Highly attractive. For sure. Who needs brains when you're hot?

Hi Tracy. Well, you know, it really did look like a turd on a spoon. But at that point, I wanted to eat it so I didn't take more shots. Thanks for stopping by.

PS: And a BIG Happy Wonder Woman Wednesday, to you.

Smart.

Matthew Rush said...

Well since I'm a dude, being attractive doesn't mean a thing. Women only care if you have money and a nice car, so I don't need to be handsome, which is probably why I let myself go and allow my belly to grow to the size of a large pumpkin (or a small Volkswagen).

Now if I were a woman, I would definitely say attractive.

Justine Dell said...

Yeah, I'd rather be attractive. And I'm not being sarcastic, either. ;-)

Looks can take you pretty far, but I think smart still wins out.

Meredith said...

I'd still rather be smart! Maybe if you're smart enough, you can figure out your own way to be highly attractive :)

Katie said...

Wow... highly attractive does sound nice. But I've got to go with smart. Eventually looks fade away. When you're 80, looks also don't matter. No one looks at an 80 year-old and says, "Man, s/he's hot."

So I'm going to go with smart. It gets you places.

Colene Murphy said...

Mmm...I'd rather be highly attractive here. I mean, being smart is the best thing to be hands down, BUT when you think of celebrities they really don't need to be smart. They don't have to follow the law, when they get busted they don't get in much trouble at all if any, it actually boosts their careers in some ways. You can get books out in a month if you want it, suckage or not and people will buy them whether they are good or not because you are you and oh so attractive. You make millions. Oh I could go on for days!

Misty Waters said...

Oh. Highly Attractive. Hands down. How else am I going to catch the attention of all those incredible fake men I read about? Oh wait. I'm married and they're fake. So my answer is now smart.

Kindros said...

Smart, the possibilities are endless. Plus if you are smart enough, can always create a surrogate or some kind of cloaking device cover your looks.

Elena Solodow said...

This is a toughie. I think smart. I think.

Carol Riggs said...

Easy one this time. Smart. Looks fade away with age, anyway. Haha, love Kindros' comment, above.

Christopher said...

I'll take the opinion of the zombie on this one.

Give me brains.

Lydia K said...

Without a question, highly intelligent.

Shannon said...

I love Lydia's answer! I'll take that!

And thanks for the shout out!

Melissa said...

Looks fade....even though I can be a little vain... I'm going to stick with highly intelligent

Chris Phillips said...

I want to be hawt. Same reason as last week. If I'm smart but ugly, I will know I'm ugly and obsess over it, while if I'm hawt, I will be too busy making out with other hawties to care. Roll Tide!

Susanne Drazic said...

Smart.
