If 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 amazingly simple and universally understood. But on the off-chance you’re seeing us from outer space, here’s how the “Would You Rather” game works: You start by posing a predicament of two equally horrifying-looking (or occasionally equally enticing options to the other player.
You then smirk as the other player wrestles with this kind of impossible scenario. Once they pick the things that they consider to be the less dreadful of two atrocious situations, it is their turn to develop a predicament for you.
The game is a regular section on the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast. Celebrity guests including Ice T and Bernie Sanders are asked by host Scott Aukerman to select the things that they believe to be the best of two horrendous scenarios. The questions are nutty and dreadful: “Would you rather eat a whole 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 requires no advance knowledge and no skills outside a little creativity. But it is only as enjoyable as the folks you play with. There is no denying that the more illogical and sometimes X rated “Would You Rather” gets, the more enjoyable it becomes.
For a little inspiration, here are some uncomfortable proposals compiled from Reddit, either.io, plus our sick, sick imaginations.
