There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

After a conversation regarding Babyloon Zoo, this question arose:
Don't ask.
Who would you invite to a dinner party?

Imagine the table with as many seats as you deem practical; who'd be there, where would everyone be positioned? The people you invite can be dead or fictional characters, and there would be no language constraints, to allow more freedom of choice.

(The reason this question came up, in case you're curious - we were talking of cocky lead singers not being liked, from Jas Mann in Babylon Zoo we went to Liam Gallagher being the worst and most pigheaded, but summised Noel would be a decent guy to invite round to dinner talk to; he'd have a lot of stories to tell.)

I'm trying to think about this myself right now, for want of a better thing to do - well, besides listening to CDs and working out which are decent songs, to convert to mp3. I'll post my own idea into a comment at a later date.

Liam Gallagher strikes me as an arrogant cvnt. I have no time for him.
Jyoti Mishra of White Town on the other hand, I'd like him to come to dinner.

I think I wasn't clear enough with what I wrote in that bit, so just edited my post - but, yeah, Liam's cuntishness would make me want to invite Noel, so I could hear the amusing stories of Liam's pride, and respective falls.

I try to stay away from parties.

You see, that's closer to what I'd do.

Unless one of those people I invite prepares the party and can cook really well. That would probably dredge me out.

Now there's a difficult question. There are many ways to approach it--invite heroes and people you admire, like historical figures, such as Einstein and Rosa Parks and whatnot. Invite people you dislike so you can have a friendly debate with them *coughBushcough*. Or go completely willy-nilly fanboy and invite videogame characters (Sonic! Rouge! Rock Man X! Zero! Iori! I could go on for ages! How big's this party, anyway?).

I really couldn't say. Maybe a combination, if only to see if Shadow would Chaos Control Bush II in the face while Mark Twain made an amusing crack about it to Martin Luther King Jr.

It's a good question to ponder. I think I'd go for people I respect, who are intelligent enough to converse moderately well about anything, with a few people to stir things up with alternate viewpoints and a few people who I can gloat about meeting without going fanboyish around.

I hope they wouldn't mind takeaway, though, my cooking is awful.
