1. Obama...so I could tell him to ignore those wacky cake decorating ladies. icon_razz.gif Then I could cross "getting a hug from Obama" off of my bucket list.

2. The inventor of the epidural..so I can sing "Wing Beneath My Wings" ever so lovingly to him/her.

3. Cornel West...because he's absolutely brilliant.

4. Oprah...hello it's Oprah!

5. Conan Obrien...because I've had the hugest crush on him since I was a young girl. Plus, we can goof on the others if it gets boring.

In no particular order ......

Levi Coffin ... the Master Conductor on the Underground Railroad. His home is in my little hometown in Indiana (Fountain City - it's a one stop-light town). His house was known as Grand Central Station and it's said that every slave that passed thru his house, made it to Canada.

Ronald Reagan

Gordon Ramsey

Sean Connery (Hubby knows that Sean Connery is my freebie ... if I ever get the chance to do the dirty deed with him, then hubby can't complain. He gets the same deal with Carrie Underwood. icon_lol.gif )

Stephen King - wouldn't it be SO interesting to get inside a mind like that!

Although ... it may not be fair to everyone if Sean Connery is there. I'd spend the whole time with my mouth open just staring at him and ignoring all my other guests! icon_lol.gif

I love your list! And I got a chuckle out of the fact that Jon Bon Jovi came before Jesus. Now THAT is a serious Bon Jovi fan.

LOL, every time I see this thread title in the Lounge, I think of this from a Hannibal Lecter point of view.

So, my choices would be:

1) Barack Obama (so I could chew him up and spit (to be kind) him out
2) Elsie (mmmmmm, beef....it's what's for dinner)
3) Johnny Depp (I actually only want to bite him really hard, because he just looks so delicious)
4) The Pillsbury Doughboy (because I love eating raw biscuit dough and I think that is what he is made of)
5) Paula Deen (because I think she would have excellent marbling)

Bwahahahahaha, I make myself laugh, even if none of you get my humor. icon_biggrin.gif
