Diversion: Which Survivor of the Impending Nuclear Apocalypse Are You?

I'm Swiss, yodelodelodelay-hee-foo'
Which Survivor of the Impending Nuclear Apocalypse Are You?
A Rum and Monkey joint.

Decked in neutrality for almost a billion years now, the Swiss are always the favourites to survive any nuclear conflict. Not only do they have the most amazing dress sense, but they've also got keen technical knowhow, a very logical cultural heritage and seventeen extra feet which they keep in their heads.

The Swiss are stereotypically associated with cuckoo clocks, chocolate, fondue and yodelling; it should be pointed out that they also enjoy running through the hills, goat farming and keeping the Earth safe from alien scum.

I'm glad I didn't turn out to be a cockroach. (New Orleans will be well-populated after the apocalypse.) And yes, it was time for a little levity.

It's not unusual to survive my, my, myyyyyy apocalypse, because you're everybody's favourite Welshman,

Tom Jones!
Forged from molten steel beneath the Earth's crust seven hundred million years ago, you are like a great big hairy Welsh crooner of iron. Which is just a well, because it's all-out death time! And great big steel fighting machines tend to survive that kind of thing.

It's good to know your music will live on. Truly, it is.

I am not quite sure what to make of that, but okay.

One thing, though, I have come to realize something from taking that test: I would probably not survive an impending apocalypse. I would probably get myself killed in what would undoubtedly be a heroic and spectacular fashion (that is, if it weren't for the likelihood that it would be too quick for anyone to notice that it was heroic and/or spectacular, which would basically just mean it just seemed tragic and/or pathetic).

Oh well.

Oh!!!! Richard!!!!!!! You have MADE MY DAY!!!Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Leave it to you to find this! It was so funny (to me) in it's original context and when I played it, I just I laughed and laughed and was soon joined by Alex, who did the same. Then I put it on my answering machine and Alex started calling repeatedly from his cell and leaving strange messages in the voices of characters from Star Wars and The Matrix. If I can make a decent digital copy, I'll post them. They were funny.

I hope Renard calls before I have to take it off and put my "real" message back on. This machine answers business calls as well. He found it as funny as I did in its original context. Oh, how I miss George and the rest of the gang.

Again, BIG thanks (with a big hug, too.)
