I grew up with Walt Disney and just can't do bad cartooning.

Long, long ago I had some college kids doing their work experience with me (poor saps). They played MUDs every lunch time, pub-crawled every weekend and tried to embarrass the heck out of each other at every opportunity ("Feel the burn!" along with a hand-warming gesture was their regular victory cry). Then one day, one of them found a 1000 question purity test.

Pretty soon the printers were humming as he ran off copies for each of them and they agreed to compare scores next morning. When I said I'd do one, the cheer was heard along the corridor. After a pleasant evening's reminiscing, I arrived next morning without the sheet (for reasons that will become obvious), but with my score, which was the number of questions you answered "no" to divided by 10. The first student set the baseline with a score of 75ish, so the next to go's 90-something was met with jeers of "prude!" and "virgin!", and so it went on. When one guy said he scored in the mid 60s, he was laughingly rounded on as either a liar or a slag.

Then came my turn. "Twenty-two point eight" I said, and silence fell. After answering the expected "really?" and "did you count the right thing?" questions, a kind of awe settled over them. "I've got a few years on you," I explained, "so I guess I've just done more."

Much of the rest of their day was spent pouring over the list trying to identify the 228 things I surely couldn't have done. width=200
I'm a ba-a-ad boy. :cheese:

Sadly no, it was rather too incriminating to leave lying around.
