Ten Dream People to Have Dinner With

You know that game where you list 10 people dead or alive you would like to have dinner with? Here's mine:

Queen Elizabeth the First
Diana Vreeland
Ghandi
Johnny Depp
Nicholas Cage
Jesus
Rasputin
Michelangelo
Madame de Pompadour
Lord Byron


There would be some interesting conversations, I am sure.

I would also like to invite Jesus to a second meal, this time with George W. Bush, Billy Graham, the Pope and the Dalai Llama. I would like to hear Jesus set the record straight with GWB, BG and the P and tell them to stop making insane rules and pronouncements in his name. I'd like to see how he and the DL interacted, I bet they'd get along well. Maybe he could work some mojo with some loaves and fishes, just for grins. It would be cool. Do you think the Secret Service would frisk Jesus or maybe do a background check? I can see it now:

"Hmm. This guy claims to be the son of God, born of an immaculate conception, and he has no social security number, photo ID or credit record. I dunno, guys, whaddya think? Do we let him in? He's clean, no weapons...just a walking stick...and he's, er, commando under those long robes. I gotta say, though, something about the guy seems trustworthy!"

Jesus would do the Jedi mind trick, say the equivalent of "These are not the droids you are looking for", and go on in.

  1. What about Eleanor of Aquitaine? Oscar Wilde, Peter the G, substitute Mary for Jesus. Larry McMurtry! Alexander the G or Ghengis. Someone from the Algonquin. Leonardo: artist, actor, turtle - your choice. Lyle. Buddha can sit next to Shakespeare's patron[ess].

    You need a bigger table...
