Should you’ve ever been on a very long road trip or invited to a slumber party or spent a year as an eighth grader, you’ve likely played “Would You Rather.”
The rules are very simple and universally known. But on the off-chance you are seeing us from outer space, here’s how the “Would You Rather” game functions: You begin by introducing a dilemma of two equally dreadful-appearing (or occasionally equally enticing alternatives to the other player.
You then smirk as the other player wrestles with such an impossible scenario. As soon as they pick what they consider to be the less awful of two atrocious situations, it is their turn to come up with a dilemma for you.
The game is a regular section on the Comedy Hit! Hit! podcast. Celeb guests including Ice-T and Bernie Sanders are asked by host Scott Aukerman to pick what they believe to be the finest of two horrific scenarios. The questions are nutty and dreadful: “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 modeled to comic Patton Oswalt.
The beauty of “Would You Rather” is its simplicity. The game needs no advance knowledge and no abilities outside a little imagination. But it is just as interesting as the folks you play with. There’s no denying that the more absurd and sometimes Xrated “Would You Rather” gets, the more enjoyable it becomes.
For a little bit of inspiration, below are some uncomfortable suggestions compiled from Reddit, either.io, and our sick, sick imaginations.
