I Am Important

The Gallup pollster who called my house last night told me so.  He was very, very interested in the following:


  • how many servings of fruit I ate a day

  • whether or not I felt happy

  • which mental disorders I suffered from, if any

  • what religion I practiced

  • which political party I belong to (answer:  "EVERYBODY SUCKS.  Please ask me further questions about this.")

  • my annual income

  • how tall I am

And then?  He asked how much I weigh.  At which point I hung up.

So: if you eat more than two apples a day, does that make you a Republican, or a Democrat?

I eat mangoes, so I guess that makes me an anarchist ;-)

Seriously, what was he thinking?
Nice answer for question 5.
