What, you don't think so? Remember during the last Presidential campaign when Barack Obama referred to the price of arugula at Whole Foods, while making a campaign stop in Iowa? As hunch blog reminds us, he was roundly ridiculed by conservatives for his effete, liberal, almost un-American preference in lettuce.
So anyway, what I did was turn the survey around, massage it a bit and make it into a quiz. It was not a scientific poll. It was based on a limited and selected group of people. So please don't hold me to a scientifically sound quiz. Nevertheless, I thought it would be fun . . . and besides, just thinking about it intuitively, it seems there's probably some truth to the whole thing.
|Do you eat off the liberal menu?|
Anyway, the point is not to argue politics, but to play a little cultural game. So ...
1) Do you like meatloaf?
2) Do you drink wine?
3) Do you like beer?
|Or swallow the conservative line?|
5) Do you eat seafood?
6) Do you like fresh fruit?
7) Do you like grape jelly?
8) How about strawberry jelly?
9) Do you grill your burgers?
10) Do you drink tap water?
11) Is Chinese your takeout of choice?
12) Do you like oatmeal cookies?
Okay, figure out your answer. The next election depends on it!
If you answered "yes" to questions no: 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, then you are a liberal. "Yes" to questions no: 1, 4, 7, 9, 11 and 12, means you're a conservative. Question 10 is a "wash" -- everybody drinks tap water!
But like I said, don't take the quiz too seriously. I myself said "yes" to Questions no. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10 and 12. So I said "yes" to 3 liberal questions and 3 conservative questions. Which makes me kind of independent ... which is exactly what I am.
And you know what else? I'm gettin' kinda hungry. Think I'll go make myself some lunch.
