Ann and Teri are the first two friends to play in our new FunkQuest series of 'one off' challenges. This was recorded before Ann was crowned Grand Champion Funkster for season 2.
Ann took the first question by choosing the 'Highland Cattle' icon. Delicately proceeding without introducing politics and naming no names, she related that she now boycotts the clothing stores of a certain famous american CEO because of his behaviour.
Teri chose the 'fish' icon and her overrated piece of technology is the mobile/cell phone. This technology along with tablets and laptops, has stopped people connecting properly. Unfortunately, they may be overrated but are essential at this time.
Question 2 and Ann would go for brains rather than looks. Someone with a sense of humour or even 'sexy ugly' like tommy Lee Jones. A young Sam Elliot - wow!
Teri related how she used to hate what she did at work, but is very satisfied with what she does now. She has a job she loves, a healthy family and feels that it is good to be alive now, despite the scariness of covid-19.
Ann loves fairground rides. She doesn't like heights exactly but as long as she is sat down she is fine. The only ride she disliked was the 'Zipper' that was a real 'barf machine.'
Teri chose the 'castle' icon and related that she has a love-hate relationship about going to the zoo. She hates the animals being kept in cages and wishes they could be free, yet understands the good zoos do, to keep animals from extinction.
When only 7 years old, Ann spent her first day at work in an antique shop. Her aunts store was an antique in itself without running water - but was swatting flies such a good thing to be doing, around all those precious items?
Teri's question 4 revealed that the person who always smells nice in her life, is her husband, she likes how he smells and he loves a certain toiletry company.
Question 5 and Ann chose the 'monster van' icon. If she was stuck in a nuclear bunker she would love John Cleese to be stuck in there with her. He and the Monty Python team are greatly admired, as she has an 'absurd' sense of humour.
Teri's final question 'How many pairs of socks do you own?' led to a surprising answer. She certainly doesn't wear 'socks with sandals' whatever the weather!
What are the FUNKQUEST rules?
FunkQuest is a fun interactive online game that features five rounds. Each player selects the icon which most tweaks their interest. Each Funky icon has a Funky question.
The question shown may or may not be related to the icon.
SO potential Funksters have to think on their feet. The winner is decided by the audience and goes through to the next round.
What's so good about FUNKQUEST ?
Funky Thinkers know that IDEAS only come from free-flowing CONVERSATION.
Listening (without prejudice) to new ideas and speakers from outside your usual network truly qualifies as FUNKY.
Each question has a strict time limit. So no multi-headed long and complicated self indulgent stories to endure. Just short punchy bite-sized truly Funky ideas, as we GET THE FUNK OUT!
I vote Ann.
I vote for Ann because I haven’t heard some of those stories before.
Terri gets my vote for wearing plaid
I don’t feel it’s right to vote for myself, and in any case, Teri deserves my vote for her story about socks. Hilarious!
