...tattoos on the top of your feet. On your right foot, it'll say 'RIGHT' in big letters, and 'LEFT' for the other foot. You can't ever get these tattoos removed, or you have to return the $10,000. You'll just have to hide your feet as much as you can or else everybody will think you're an idiot

I could REALLY use the money, but I wouldn't do the WBC picketing thing, I think I would just feel so bad about it. I would TRY to eat the crickets but I doubt I would be able to.

Maybe if they could be dipped in honey or chocolate sauce or something?

It's not the taste I'm really worried about, its more... they're live BUGS. I'm really grossed out/scared by bugs of any kind, like run away from them kind of scared by them, so I don't know if I could even touch one, let alone pick it up and put it in my mouth!

Covering them in chocolate might kill them, thus violating the 'live' part of the question

It wouldn't kill them immediately, I don't think. I didn't say they couldn't be on the verge of death (which really, what cricket isn't?). A nice dip in chocolate or honey to stop them from hopping and make them go down more smoothly.... yum.

I feel like I would get the tattoos in a lighter color such as baby blue or pink, since the poll didn't specify. then it wouldn't be too bad. Plus it's funny and if I were into ridiculous tattoos, sounds like ones I would get anyways, since I'm so directionally challeneged.

Me too... and either outlined or just really thin (still big!)... that shit would fade.


I think left on the right and right on the left would be funnier. :)

If it weren't for the fact that they fund their "operation" by suing people who assault them, I would oh-so-happily bunch punch a member of the WBC in the face for 10 grand. Or, you know, the fun of it.

They were in my town recently to protest the funeral of Sgt Donna Johnson, because not only was the in the service, she was also married to a woman. We did a human wall thing to shield her family from them (and there were I don't even know how many bikers there doing the same). It was really an amazing thing. But actually seeing them with their utterly disgusting hateful talk and their fucking signs, at the funeral of this woman, for all her loved ones to have to see and hear ... it's just gut-wrenching, like, it makes you physically sick. Reading about it? Bad. But seeing people who are allegedly human, causing that kind of pain to other human beings?

I'd rather live in a cardboard box than be associated with those creeps, even for a day.

I think a bunch of gay people, dressed in the most provocative, barely-decent attire possible, should protest the Westboro church. Like, their actual place of worship. Carry sexually explicit signs and make out with each other heavily. Do it on their day of service, and mob the parking lot, so worshippers would have to move past them to get to church.

I think it would be hilarious if several men wearing nothing but thongs would stand adjacent to the WBC protests, carrying signs that said "GOD HATES FAGS BECAUSE HIS SON WAS A 'FISHER OF MEN' " or something scandalous

That would be pretty hilarious. Like, "hey, Jesus said love thy fellow man!" or something. No disrespect meant to Jesus, who, from all accounts was a pretty cool cat.

I think camo thongs in particular would make a great statement.

Sadly, that kind of dress would probably get them nailed for indecent exposure, and possibly lewd conduct. Still, it would be great while it lasted!

Then something else provocative that's street legal. I'm not sure what would constitute that

I would do all of them. Well, I would attempt the cricket one but I've eaten a cricket before and realistically I don't know that I could manage to eat 15 of them. The legs just don't chew, man. Super gross.

I would rather get "LEFT" on my right foot and vice versa. If I'm going to be ridiculous, might as well go all the way.

The only one I'd do is the foot tattoo because people could possibly assume I'm an idiot or that I did it for laughs. Also, I really hate feet and feet tattoos.

I have a friend who has "left" tattooed on his left wrist. He has a lot of tattoos though, both silly and serious so it doesn't stand out like the feet would.

No to all except the tattoo one.

(Now that I think about it, that's the only lasting choice... I may not be too wise xD)

Westboro Baptist "Church" has something like ten members.Some ridiculously small number, anyway. I think it would be a great idea for a thousand people to join--and then vote out asshat-in-chief Fred Phelps.

I said yes to the first one, but really I'd only do it if it's with one of the ubiquitous crusty "homeless" teenagers that hang out in berkeley.

Haha - I love the LEFT RIGHT tattoo! If I needed the money I'd do it, but I know how much my own tattoo hurt and wouldn't want to repeat that atm. Still, taht tattoo would be totally me. I'd need that on my hands though!

I don't care, it's disgusting. It isn't something embarrassing, or weird, or kind of yucky. It's being an insensitive human being, and doing something awful to people who just lost a loved one.

I'll show you a video of my husband's military funeral, and how awful it was even WITHOUT people tormenting me because of the job he chose, and you can let me know if $10,000 justifies being that cruel.

I agree that it's completely disgusting. I think WBC are unquestionably the most horrible people in existence. But I would say there are situations in which you could justify doing some pretty fucked up shit for enough money.
