You have the choice to live with a gorilla who knows sign language or a dog who sings lullabies, which do you choose?

The Gorilla, presuming if he/she knows sign language and you could actually converse. The gorilla would also prove more effective against intruders. I imagine the singing dog would become irritating rather quickly, especially when lullabies are the only choice...If was a funk singing dog that would change everything.

Cartwheels for six hours a day for the rest of your life, or a fire-extinguisher for a leg?

Most ridiculous question I have ever been asked! Even with a fire extinguisher for a leg, you could get more done than wasting 6 hours a day cart wheeling. Is the fire extinguisher operational?

 

Worst lid in the Pelargos Foundation:

Dave Lindley or Pete Woodcock, I struggled with this as I feel my lid is not the strongest.
