In case you have ever been on an extended road trip or invited to a slumber party or spent a year as an eighth grader, you have likely played “Would You Rather.”
The rules are very easy and universally known. But on the off-chance you are visiting us from outer space, here’s how the “Would You Rather” game functions: You begin by presenting a predicament of two equally horrid-seeming (or sometimes equally enticing alternatives to the other player. Here’s an example: “Would you rather have sex with a dog and nobody in the planet knows you did it, or would you rather not have sex with a dog, and everybody in the planet believes you did it?”
You afterward smirk as the other player wrestles with such an impossible scenario. Once they pick the things that they consider to be the less terrible of two atrocious situations, it is their turn to think of a predicament for you.
The game is a regular segment on the Comedy Hit! Hit! podcast. Celeb guests including Ice T and Bernie Sanders are asked by host Scott Aukerman to choose the things that they believe to be the best of two horrific scenarios. The wyr questions are nutty and horrible: “Would you rather eat an entire Christmas tree, or have all of your children have Jim Carrey’s face from The Grinch tattooed on their chests?” is one question Aukerman posed to comedian Patton Oswalt.
The beauty of “Would You Rather” is its simplicity. The game needs no advance knowledge and no abilities outside a little creativity. But it is just as fun as the people you play with. There’s no denying that the more illogical and occasionally X rated “Would You Rather” gets, the more fun it becomes.
For a bit of inspiration, here are a few uncomfortable propositions compiled from Reddit, either.io, plus our sick, sick imaginations.
