The Stolen Shipwreck Questions. It's not the bead company... Sunday Stealing

The Shipwreck Questions
Welcome back to Sunday Stealing which originated on WTIT: The Blog authored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. You may have heard the expression, “honor among thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from. We also provide a link to the victim's questions in our "Previous Victims" widget. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from recently asked questions from a previously post.

We found this gem the old-fashioned way. We googled it. Not this title, it came last. We hate to use memes from other sites. There are a lot of places that regular generates questions via a program or app (and are they really different things? We do ponder life’s mysteries late at night!) The thing is that Kwizgiver did it and we we’re none the worse for it. In fact, I think it helped us. (Of course, you are included.) As far as Stealing goes, I really thought I’d just wait a couple of weeks and then attempt to pass it off to the next thief.  But a funny thing happened. I really enjoy doing this and many weeks it’s all I do. In a "doing the questions" thing.
Not that any of this matters to you, but WTF, you can skip ahead. 

In fact I imagine most of you did. Prove me wrong and add a comment by just saying “I read the stupid stuff." The long winded point is this: I got this meme site, now defunct shockingly, because all they did were memes “If you were stranded on an island…” and it was called The Ships Meme. Even I couldn’t make this shit up. They didn’t last long so we just stole some random questions and gave them a name. Our original title was “The Gilligan Island Questions” but then we figured that those of you were too young or would think it was about the show. So sorry, we won’t ask the Ginger or Maryanne question. So, for the first time this year of 2017 (get this - it is our 50th Anniversary Year of WTIT), I will raise my glass of Smirnoff and toast!

Happy 50th!
Also, I read the stupid stuff, and the part about them not lasting long is especially telling.

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Sunday Stealing: The Shipwreck Questions

You are shipwrecked with friends (your group can include real life or virtual life or both) think about it and pick some friends to truly enjoy your cruise +  and tell us why you assembled the group by just telling us...

1. Who would throw the wildest parties, and why did you pick them? 

Ann, because she was ruthlessly crazy.

2. Who would always fall asleep on the couch, and why did you pick them? 
That would be me.  And I'm the one doing this thing, so that's sort of self explanatory.

3. Who would enter to be in a talent show, and why did you pick them? 
Since I have no intention of running a "talent show", I would pick no one on this- no one.

4. Who would try to get out of doing their chores and why did you pick them?
I'm going back right now and re-reading the rules...
5. Who would accidentally set the kitchen on fire whilst cooking and why did you stupidly pick them? 
I'm sorry, I wouldn't invite such a ditz in the first place, for ANY reason.

6. Who would try to domesticate an island pet and why did you pick them?

7. Who would make the other carry their bags on a shopping spree and why did you pick them?
  Wait, just where IS this party again?

8. Who would throw the first person off the boat and why did you pick them?
 Why would I pick such a brute to be in this party?

9. Who would be the best caregiver when someone got sick; why did you pick them? 
Jane would be.  She's a nurse.

10. Who would try to force the another to play sports with them; why did you pick them? 
I'm not going to ask an overbearing Jock to this party. Because they are rude and bossy.

 Diana.  She's funny, sweet and clever.

Sister Cee.  Because I love her.

14. Flashes everyone when they walk by after taking a shower alone; why did you pick them?

15. Who wakes you to asks weird questions in the middle of the night ; why did you pick them?

16. Who will constantly ask you “what are you thinking about?” ; why did you pick them? 
A shrink?  They won't last long either.  
17. Which of your friends on this island might being too touchy-feely while you interact, why did you pick them?
Believe me, I have NO friends like this.  

Thank you for playing this week on Sunday Stealing! Please leave a comment or link when you have posted. Stop back and visit other player’s posts. That is really what this is all about, making new friends! Have a great week. See you next Sunday!

Peace & love-

Peace and Love, Bud.  Rest and get well.


  1. I think we all thought this one was pretty stupid.

    1. Once you could figure an angle on it, you had the groove. I couldn't get my groove on. Lol

  2. Agreed on this week's questions.

    1. What's that little song, "That's about the size, where you put your eyes, that's about the size of it." CountryDew and Pandora nailed it in different ways. Heehee 😉 the rest of us did our best.

  3. Sorry about this one. I did pick a stinker. I try to find something different and wound up with something incredibly stupid. I apologize and promise to find a great one for next week! Thanks for trying which is more than I did...

    1. Yo! Bud, no worries. And, I really mean that. With the right "angle", this was fun. It's no easy job finding a meme every week. Peace and Love, and rest up.

  4. I seem to be the only one who found a way to have fun with this one.

    1. Yes, you did! I admired your deep knowledge of the psychology of Lord of The Rings characters, too. You did a great job.
