What's the Weirdest Thing Your Pet Has Eaten?


On Fridays I post a series of questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one question, answer all, reply to someone else. On to this week's topics of discussion!

1. According to VPI, which provides insurance for pets, they received 6500 claims for animals ingesting foreign objects in 2011, including deer antlers, a G.I. Joe action figure, a cassette tape, and a foot-long metal hanger. One dog even ate more than 100 rocks! So: What's the weirdest thing your pet has ever eaten?

2. What's your major? (Thanks to reader Matthew McKee for submitting this question!)

3. Baz Luhrmann's film adaptation of The Great Gatsby hits theaters today. What beloved book has been adapted on screen before, but deserves a new version? (My vote for this would be John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany, which was adapted into a movie called Simon Birch.)

4. The floor is yours! If you have a question for your fellow _flossers, ask away—and have a great weekend!

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
