We decided we hated doing bios. Instead, we asked some of our friends to ask us questions we could answer. It's like a bio...just less bio-ey.
What is your favorite joke?
Christian: I’m terrible at remembering jokes, which is probably the most important aspect of a joke. That, and the punchline of course. I think, if I have to only use jokes I know, I’d go with the following:
Two muffins are in an oven. One muffin looks at the other and says “Man, it’s getting hot in here.” The other muffin looks back and says “Ahh!! A talking muffin!!”
I know it’s dumb, but it made me laugh very hard the first time I heard it.
Matt: I seem to only know jokes I can’t tell in mixed company so I’ll go with this: Bacon and Eggs walk into a bar and the bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve breakfast.”
Now wasn’t that charming and family-friendly?
What is the funniest word?
Matt: Dongle, it’s funny. Say it and enjoy. You’re welcome.
Christian: Masticate. Funny for many reasons. One is pretty obvious. The other is because while I was prepping for the SATs in high school, someone read that word out loud and..well, reason number 1 for being funny came out making it even funnier.
What animal would you want to be and why?
Christian: Animals are pretty gross when you consider it, but if I had to pick one I think I’d be a Tardigrade (thank you octonauts). Why? Because tardigrade almost made my funniest word and as a creature they are pretty ridiculous little things. Plus, they are virtually unkillable.
Matt: Giraffes are cool but I enjoy being the top of the food chain.
Most desired super power?
Christian: I like to keep my powers at least somewhat reasonable, but I always wanted the ability to see the outcome of a situation if I said/did something extremely unexpected or totally inappropriate. I don’t want the repercussions I just want to see peoples' reactions. You know the moments. So as a super power, I think I’ll take Nicolas Cage’s “Two minutes in the future” power from Next.
Matt: To turn invisible and no, not for any creepy reason thank you very much.
Most Embarrassing Moment?
Ketchup or Mustard?
Matt: Ketchup, but not a lot. Everything in moderation, including moderation.
Christian: I do love tomatoes, but was never a fan of ketchup. I guess this means I have to give the edge to mustard, but only dijon. I’m fancy like that.
Favorite place you’ve ever traveled?
Matt: Ocean City, NJ (Not Maryland) since it's close by and I have lots of family memories there. St. John in USVI for something more exotic and fancy although it's a pain getting there.
Christian: Ugh...I’m so untraveled. I am fond of the Virgin Islands. St. John is pretty beautiful and it encourages a lot of hanging out, relaxing, and playing games while overlooking the ocean.
Most unnecessary common game component?
Matt: First player token.
Christian: First player token.
Say Something Touching.
Christian: Something Touching. Ha...just kidding. I’m not a terribly touching individual. If I have to be open, I'll say something about game design. My favorite thing about Great Wight Games is that it showed me a lot of truths in life and allowed me to strengthen friendships that I thought were at their peak. I believe that the most important thing in relationships is being able to talk to one another and games are a wonderful vessel to facilitate conversation. To be a part of making that happen is truly a magical experience. Yuck, I actually said magical.
Matt: Most of my favorite memories and experiences involve my family sitting around and just enjoying each others company and mercilessly making fun of one another.
