Ok, I'm not sure if this has gone around here before.... but, I have had this asked of me several times.

If you could invite 4 people to dinner, who would they be and what would you serve them? Yes, it can be anyone who is no longer with us. I'm interested to hear what you say.

Here's my list:

John Elway
Diamond David Lee Roth
Steve Martin
Drew Carey

Bit of an odd mix, I might add, but I think there would be some colorful conversations. As for the meal... I'd serve pizza and beer, keep it casual.

Oysters and lots of wine. ;)

Jesus,
Mohammad,
Moses and
Khufu

I'd serve bread and wine because then I wouldn't have to worry about the pork thing.

I'd love to hear the first three tell me about their religions and I could see for myself if they were indeed holy men.

Khufu built the great pyramid of Giza and I'd like to know how the **** he did it...

06-13-2001, 02:12 PM
Jesus
Abe Lincoln
Teddy Roosevelt
Martin Luther


Its an odd group and would not know what to serve. My guess would be Bread and Wine, wild game hen and some sort of salad.

Ronald Reagan
George Patton
Adolf Hitler
Erin Rommel

Ok, first 2 need no explanation. ( besides I could turn them loose on #3)

#3, just because the man was such a charismatic leader, I would like to talk to him just to see if he really believed what he said, or was playing to the masses.

#4 Patton's alter ego.

john,

an ex girlfriend's dad had a photo album given to him by his father that was General Goering's(he had taken it during a raid of his summer home in the war). It contained many many pictures of Hitler at weddings, christenings, and picnics.....I had never seen anything like it....the guy looked as normal as anyone....the soft light church pics and him holding babies was eerie.

~gave me the eebie jeebies...I'm sure it would be very valuable to the right collector.

Jesus - Biblical
George Brett - HOF Athlete
Einstein - Genius
Savanah - Deceased Porn Star

I like diversity with my dinner conversation. I think the above would accomplish just that.

I'd serve Wine - Biblical, Hot Dogs - Athlete, Tuna - Brain Food and Pie - Well, you get the drift :D

Iowanian,
I have seen a lot of film footage of him, in "normal" settings, and it is errie. Would just be fasinated to hear him speak.

Patton, I would like to here him speak of his ideas about reincarnation.

Ronald, just to know him, he was such a powerfull speaker.

Rommel- he was a milatary genius

I don't know about dinner, but one person I'd really to meet is the person that came up with the idea of faucets in public restrooms that you have to hold down in order for the water to continue to run.
I hate that.
I'd ask him what the hell he was thinking?

Bob Dole
06-13-2001, 06:00 PM
Gamal Abdul Nassar, Adolph Hitler, Robin Williams and Jonathan Winters.

Refried beans, pinto beans, navy beans w/ ham, ranch style beans.

Bob Dole wants to better understand nationalism. (As a relatively mobile society without <b>serious</b> roots, we'll never understand what's going on in the Middle East.)

And if you ever saw the interview Barbara Walters had with Robin Williams and Jonathan Winters, you wouldn't even need to ask.

The resulting farts from the dinner would just add too much material for Williams and Winters to resist, and the last part of the evening would be spent listening to them bag on Hitler and Nassar.

Any four people, eh?

Winston Churchill
Thomas Brooche (my great-great-great-great-grandfather)
Jimmy Stewart
Sun Tzu


I've always admired Churchill, more for his books (A History of the English-speaking peoples and his WWII books) than anything else. But he saw the Age of Empires at their peak and then the long drawn out road to nationalism.

My great*-grandfather was a Civil War Veteran, who rode with Bedford Forrest and J.E.B. Stuart and participated in the Battle of Gettysburg. I'd just like to ask him questions about his experiences. We have the family stories, but I'd like to know the truth.

Jimmy Stewart is one of my favorite actors as well as being a hero of WWII. He was at the 50th anniversary of Jimmy Doolittle's raid that was celebrated at the Presidio of Monterey while I was there. I was SO proud to get to meet some of Doolittle's Raiders and was never prouder of being in uniform at the time.

Even if "The Art of War" is a compilation of a number of Chinese military theorists, I'd like to meet the man who is credited with putting a very complex thing into such simple yet very accurate terms. The book is small, the message is powerful.

Charlton Heston
Ronald Reagan (if he was still healthy)
Norman Schwarzkopf
Margaret Thathcher

Would be one dinner party.

Beer, Iced Tea, Grilled Steak, Baked Potatos, and Corn on the cob

I admire each of these individuals tremendously and think they would all be so down to earth as to enjoy that dinner. The conversation has such potential.

I said I'd change my mind a few times depending on the time of day, and here's who I'd invite right now:


Carl Sagan
Einstein
Isaac Azimov
John Coltrane

I'd make it a pot luck.

Using the previous answers as a measuring stick, I think this well intended post has been broken up into to groupings.

1. Getting the people you find most intriguing together for dinner and enjoying their company while observing their interaction, and;

2. Getting together with the 4 girls you would most like to have a gang-bang with.

Far be it me to break up the momentum…

Category 1:
1. Joe Montana
2. Jack Nicholson
3. Winston Churchill
4. Albert Einstien

Category 2:
1. Salma Hayek
2. Anna Kournikova
3. Jennifer Anostine
4. A girl from college who's name will remain anonymous

Almost forgot what I'd server:

Catagory 1 - surf and turf followed by fine brandy and cigars
Catagory 2 - Cristal Champagne, bubble baths and strawberrys

1. Jesus
2. Judus - Just what were you thinking?
3. George Washington
4. Mark Twain

My father would be there or else I'd kick Judas out of that group real quick. My father was the most important person in my life as I grew up. He taught me that the most important thing I would ever own in this life was my name. Jesus taught me that the most important thing I will ever own in this life or ever is my soul. :)

I think 1 fish and 1 loaf of bread would be plenty. :D

Interesting ... and difficult. Let's see here:

1. Mark Twain for great stories and conversation
2. The architect for the Great Pyramids of Egypt (Khufu was the pharoh, wasn't he 58forever? I can't remember the architects name ... where is my wife when I need her?) so I can find out how in the hell they built those things.
3. Richard Pryor for comedic relief (naturally, this is the healthy, non-coked-up version of the greatest comedian ever).
4. Mozart, as long as he brings a piano with him.

I can think of many others and, like keg, I might change my mind as the day progresses. But right now I think that's a good mix. Oh yeah, it also assumes that they all speak English. It also assumes that my wife is there with me.

What's for dinner? Some good ol' KC bar-b-que, of course!! I'm thinking ribs, some burnt ends, a keg of Boulevard Wheat ...

LOL!!! Can't argue much with the second list ... too bad I'm married and faithful. Just send me a tape, would ya? ;)

Interesting thread!! I gave this some thought, and I'd have to say:

My dad (who died in 1982)
John Wayne (probably my dad's favorite actor)
My daughter (because she never had the opportunity to meet my dad, which is unfortunate)
Marilyn Monroe (WOW)

We would have homemade Ravioli, corn on the cob, fried zucchini, and wine.

ROTFLMAO!!! I'll have the VCR ready!! :D



I asked my wife about this thread, and here are hers:

1. God, for several reasons: a.) to find out if he/she/it actually exists; b.) some people have posted Jesus as a guest ... her thought is "Why not take out the middle man?"; c.) she has a few questions.

2. Michaelangelo: she wants to know how he came up with the helicopter, submarine and other inventions when nothing of the sort existed.

3. Herodotus: a Greek historian who wrote about the ancient wonders of the world. She has some questions for him as well.

4. Hemon: This is the guy who was the foreman on the Great Pyramids. She, just like me and a few others, want to know how in the hell they did it.

She pretty much just wants to ask these people (and deity) some questions about what they knew. As far as what to serve, her response was: "Well, your a$$ will be cookin', so make it something good!" :)

MM
~~Just added four more reasons to love his wife.

I don't mean to rain on your parade, but I think Leonardo da Vinci is the guy that invented the helicopter, submarine, etc.

Just my opinion, but I believe the reason most people chose Jesus for a dinner guest instead of God is the origional question asked for four "people" you would invite. The bible states that God is spirit and I believe that most of us think of Him in that light.

Also an important fact to know; the bible also says that no man can look upon the face of God and live. I really don't want to invite a dinner guest who would kill me if I happened to look upon them - although I have been on a few dates where this rule applied. :D

LOL fellas!!

I asked her the same thing abour De Vinci ... I think they both screwed around with that stuff. Honestly, she'd probably take either one.

As far as god goes ... she'll take a representation of him (although a burning bush would really ruin the carpet, I think). :D

The mose recent Playmates of the Years... (2001, 2000, 1999, and 1998).

Who needs intelligent discourse with eye candy like that?

Besides, I can't think and eat at the same time. (Although having 4 bunnies in scantily clad evening wear would probably make me THINK of something anyways!):D
