Okay, here's the proverbial lunch with a dead man question...

If you could have lunch with any one person, living or dead, who would it be?

I'm tempted to say Mahatma Gahndi, but then again, he probably wouldn't eat much! That's such a crap joke. Anyway, my real answer is John Lennon. How about you?

Walt Disney. I would love for him to see the new technologies in Animation and to confront the Anti-Walt, Michael Eisner with a pink slip.

I always laugh when I hear this because I believe Max Maven was asked this question and he said something like "Bruce Cervon...dead."

I think it would have to be with Red Skelton. He had to be one of the funniest guys back before my day.

Lunch with my wife please - don't worry, she's not dead! But let's have it in a restaurant. We will be the only customers, and there on piano will be ERROL GARNER . . . playing my requests !

Diamond Jim Brady, at least I know I won't walk away hungry.
Seriously, it would have to be my Father. I would have much to say to him and I would love to show him photo's of his Grandchildren, especially my Daughter.
A very close second would have to be Louis Berkie whom some of the Café' members know. Mr. Berkie had many Magician friends and was not only my boss but was a very dear friend as well. I never got to say goodbye and more important than that, I never told Berkie how much I Love him and what an influence he has been in my life. I miss him soooooo much.

Greg, I kind of had that story in mind when I posted this question - truly one of the best answers ever!

Same here: for all the same reasons! I'd also just like to hear story ideas that he's had for 40 or so years.

I'd lean over to the next table and ask Walt Disney how it feels to be cryogenically frozen.

Honestly not wishing to offend anyone, I would love to ask a certain first-century rabbi (over, I am sure, a kosher meal) to describe in his own words exactly what happened and what it was all about...

I certainly am offended by your remark. We know who this first-century Rabbi is. Can't we just say Jesus without being offensive? We are not talking about a religion or philosophy but an historical person. Censorship is what offends me (unless I am doing the censoring).
I too thought about sharing a meal with Jesus but I think I would be too timid and a little guilt ridden to be very good company for him. Besides, I would be so busy asking questions I wouldn't get much to eat.

Sorry I offended you, Iven. I kind of hoped the oblique way I posted my answer would help minimize any offense to anobody, whilst still indicating my own personal perspective, to some extent. Oh well.

That being said, I understand the name "Jesus" is the romanized/latinized form of the Hebrew name "Joshua" (or one of its variations), which is how Jesus would have been known to those around him and the name he would have answered to. I would therefore probably use that name.

"Censorship is what offends me (unless I am doing the censoring)." - I guess that was the stance I was adopting!
