Default Three people (dead or alive) you would like to have over for dinner

For me it would have to be:
- George Carlin (one of my favorite people)
- Albert Einstein (no justification needed here)
- Jesus (because I want to get to the bottom of some things)

I would serve fish with Mediterranean salad and a nice bottle of Chardonnay. With Einstein and Jesus at the table, pork is out of question I guess.

Steve Allen because of his wit.

Thomas Jefferson & Benjamin Franklin Because I am so mad at what has happened to the government in this country. I would like to get it first hand at what they invisioned for the country we call America.

I don't eat people.


Tom Hanks
Eric Clapton
Maj. Richard Winters (Band of Brothers)

Eric might feel out of place, so maybe I'd have him come on another night.

Benjamin Franklin, for sure. Would love to pick his brain about a variety of things, including his involvement in Freemasonry and it's role in founding the country.

Bob Dylan. It would be the thrill of a lifetime to sit down and play a few songs with him after dinner.

my dad......he died last August at age 80. Was a huge influence on me in so many ways. I'd give anything for one last meal with him.

CS Lewis - for the fun of it

I think you'd have a hard time getting a Freemason to talk about Freemasonry. (On the other hand, this is Ben Franklin we're talking about, so maybe if you just got him drunk enough . . . .)

Interesting menu but don't forget, if Jesus is there, all you'd need is to find some loaves of bread and some fish. Maybe he can turn some water into wine for you too

My three:
- Bono
- Apostle Paul
- i dunno. haha.
