It Don't Run in Our Blood

Welcome to Choose and Defend Wednesday, Your Majesty! That's you are royalty. The question is, which kind of royalty would you prefer to be?

Actual Ruler of the Land

Privileged Figure Head

I'm not sure how much anybody likes royalty anywhere nowadays (or any days, come to think of it) but if you must be royal...  Maybe with plenty of money and some or all of the power, being liked isn't such a big deal. I don't know. You tell me. Choose and Defend!

Figure Head. I can't be trusted with any responsibility. You could ask my houseplants and goldfish, but they're no longer with us.

Hmmm, tough call. On one hand, I can rule with an iron fist and make everyone bend to my will. On the other hand, I can sit around and collect all sort of cash, get unwarranted respect and not have to do a thing. I'll take the latter. PRIVILEGED FIGURE HEAD!

PRIVILEDGED FIGURE HEAD. And I'd make treaties with Jasen in matters of leisure.

James: I happen to know you've kept a couple of human beings alive! But never mind...One for Figure Head.

Jasen: And here I thought you were going to take over the world one day! Two for Figure Head.

Bobby: haha! You guys can meet in secret and set up a schedule that will work for both of you. Three for Figure Head.

Everyone: Hmmm. So far, no one wants to be a hardcore ruling king. 0-3 Actual Ruler v. Figure Head. Let's hear from some other royalty, m'kay? :-D

Figurehead! Who'd want all that responsibility?

3GK: haha! No one, if this Choose and Defend is accurate! Four for Figure Head.

Now 0-4.

The life of a figurehead would be nice! That's what I would choose, I'd rather not have to actually rule over people. That would be annoying, having to tell people what to do all the time!

FW: Apparently ruling supreme is very unpopular! Five for Figure Head.

Now, 0-5, the lead for Figure Head over Actual Ruler continues to grow!
