What 80s movie are you?
What 80s movie are you? What's your old person's name? Which Dwarf are you? What breed of dog? What Harry Potter Character? What ice cream flavour? What Shakespearean heroine? What turn of the century inventor? What Norse God? What Titan? What Dr. Seuss book? What Mathematical Equation? What Scrabble letter?
Okay, I admit it - when these quizzes pop up in my Facebook feed, I am just as guilty as the next person. I'll take the 2 minutes to do them. Hell, I'll take the 2 minute quiz that guesses your age based on what three drinks you like. For some reason, I drew the line at What breed of dog. I don't know why. "Oh please, oh please, oh please, let me get Weimerander!!!" (Fingers crossed, eyes shut.)
What breed of dog?? I found myself channelling Sally from When Harry Met Sally. "I am the dog? I am the DOG?!?"
Then I was thinking - great, next one'll be: What type of slut are you? Are you a dirty, DIRTY slut - or just a dirty slut?
If a hacker was going to to try infect someone's computer with a virus - all they'd have to do is attach it to one of these quizzes. Anyone from Generation X is already pre-disposed to eagerly waste time, desperate to grab a quick shot of nostalgia, because apparently, life in the new Millennium is too... much.
Way, WAY back, when... quizzes were done in magazines... Does anyone else remember having to sharpen a pencil?
