And the Ones That Mother Gives You

My brain is more befuddled than usual today.  My supervisor (the deserter!) asked me to switch shifts with her, so I am working late today (Wednesday), which is very rare for me.  Doesn't take much to throw me off.  So anyway, for Choose and Defend Wednesday, I thought I'd go with a "Would You Rather" classic question.  Yes, there is such a thing.  It is on all the best "Would You Rather" lists.  Choose and Defend Wednesday, sometimes gets inspiration from these lists, if nothing is going on in the life of laura b. that is worthy of debate :-)  Um.  So.  Anyway, here you go....which pet would you rather have?  And why?  (That would be the Choose and Defend)

A Giant Hamster

A Tiny Rhinoceros

Remember, you can't win if you don't play!  Okay, yes, I know...there is no winning...but there is no losing either!  So Choose and Defend!

Geez, didn't I tell you I never want a pet again? Okay, I'd definitely take the tiny rhino. First, tiny rhino is fun to say. Second, no fur to mess with my allergies. Third, you could build it a mini Serengeti in a glass tank. And Fourth, the idea of a giant hamster creeps the hell out of me.

MrManuel said...

Uh, hamster. I think the rhino would be more destructive and hurt me more.

Tara said...

I really wouldn't be very comfortable with a giant hampster in my apartment. It would make a mess, and where would I store the hampster wheel? It doesn't go with any of my decor.

I guess I'll choose a tiny rhinoceros. They're not too cuddly either, but they look prehistoric and that's cool.

NoRegrets said...

Tiny rhino for sure. It'd just be cool.

Churlita said...

I'd like a tiny rhino, please. They would be easily containable and giant rodents are creepy.

Secret: haha! You're right! I disregarded my own no pet rule too :-) A mini Serengeti sounds great! One for Mini Rhino.

MrManuel: Your dogs might like cuddling with a giant hamster too! One for Giant Hamster.

Tara: hee hee! I am picturing your home decor all centered around a giant hamster wheel...could be fun :-) Rhinoceroses do look prehistoric, don't they! Two for Tiny Rhino.

NoRegrets: I think it would be cool, too. Three for Tiny Rhino.

Churlita: Aw, I bet Archie would love to frolic with a giant hamster! :-D But for containability, you made a good choice. Four for Tiny Rhino

Everyone: Tiny Rhinoceros is beating the heck out of Giant Hamster! (Are you picturing the actual battle? I am.) 4-1, so far. And stragglers checking in, ad your voice to the weird pet debate!!!
