Tell Me Which You Would - The Bad or the Good?

How did it get to be Friday already? I'm having trouble getting that little factoid into my brain. I finished my dreaded synopsis of Shifting Her World. Thank you for all your help Misty and Natalie! You know I've had a pretty good writing week if there aren't many posts. Anywho, check out this video. It got me to a-wonderin'.



I loved this commercial when it came out back in the day, mainly for the Van Halen. Yet it was funny, too, and G.I. Joe completely out-cooled Ken.

But here's what I wondered. The Bad Boy. Do you prefer the Bad Boy Hero or the Good Boy Hero? I'm split. I write both. I enjoy reading both if they're well rounded. But deep down I think if I was held over a pit of bubbling tar and told to choose, I would go with the good guy. But only if placed under some such duress. (Molten lava would get me to sing on this topic as well.)

So which type of hero would be your favorite as you dangle precariously over the pit? And, remember, this is for posterity, so be honest.

I don't know who I would pick. Sometimes the "good guys" bore me, but sometimes when you're dangling over that pit, you seriously gotta call on him!
Btw; I most definitely got the quote at the end, before seeing the video.
Accomplishment of the day? I think so.

Since this is for posterity, I think I have to go with the Bad Boy Hero. In my experience, they tend to have better one liners.

Congratulations on the completion of your dreaded synopsis.

Hey, I remember that ad. And Ken is a wuss. I also knew that quote came from 'The Princess Bride.' Congrats on the hated synopsis. Doesn't that word sound like some kind of disease?

Definitely the accomplishment of the day, Briana.

I think you're right about the one-liners, M.

Thanks. I'm glad it's done! I don't relish the synopsis job.

Dreaded synopsis does sound like something contagious that you wouldn't want to catch, Sue.

I should never underestimate the power of The Princess Bride. Inconceivable!

I don't remember that commercial! They should always make car commercials like that!

I can't pick, though I also have to be contrary and don't consider GI Joe in this to be a Bad Boy. Ken could just as easily squeal his convertible around, and would. :) But that silliness aside...

I wouldn't be able to pick one or the other, it's all about the individual! :)
