If you’ve ever been on an extended 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 very easy and universally known. But on the off-chance you are visiting us from outer space, here’s how the “Would You Rather” game functions: You begin by introducing a dilemma of two equally horrible-appearing (or sometimes equally enticing alternatives to the other player. Here’s an example: “Would you rather have sex with a dog and nobody in the entire world knows you did it, or would you rather not have sex with a dog, and everybody in the entire world thinks you did it?”
You afterward smirk as the other player wrestles with such an impossible scenario. As soon as they decide the things that they consider to be the less awful of two atrocious situations, it’s their turn to produce a dilemma for you.
The game is a regular segment on the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast. Celebrity guests including Ice T and Bernie Sanders are requested by host Scott Aukerman to pick the things that they believe to be the finest of two horrific scenarios. The questions are nutty and awful: “Would you rather eat a whole Christmas tree, or have all of your kids have Jim Carrey’s face from The Grinch tattooed on their chests?” is one question Aukerman modeled to comedian Patton Oswalt.
The attractiveness of “Would You Rather” is its simplicity. The game requires no advance knowledge and no abilities outside a bit of originality. But it’s only as entertaining as the folks you play with. There is no denying that the more absurd and occasionally X rated “Would You Rather” gets, the more fun it becomes.
For a little bit of inspiration, here are a few uncomfortable propositions compiled from Reddit, either.io, and our sick, sick imaginations.
