    Well, the intellectual tea party does have its merits, and I really would like to chat with Alexander the Great, just so I could say, "Hey, Al-ex" like Nick from Family Ties. But, I think I would go for more of a fun, story telling type tea party, not that I imagine any of my guests drinking tea...

    Guest 1: Tommy Vercetti from GTA3 Vice City. It's not that I like crime, but that guy has to have some stories.

    Guest 2: Duke from G.I. Joe. He's been in a lot of wars, fought a lot of strange people and fought beside a lot of even more strange people. Besides, Snake Eyes can't talk.

    Guest 3: Mark Twain. I think he's the great American story teller. Anyone who can make riverboats interesting is cool in my book.

    Guest 4: The captain from Firefly. Witty, soldier and mercenary, not to mention stories of traveling the stars something I would do if only I have physical prowess, mechanical ability and could operate something more complicated than an automatic transmission.

    Guest 5: Megatron (Generation 1 naturally). First off, Optimus is at Jeff's party. Second, I'd love to hear about all the plans that failed and how bad he wanted to kill Starscream. Third, at the end of the party, he could transform into a gun, and I'd shoot Duke so that Flint, or better yet Hawk who was a general, would lead GI Joe as we all know he should have.

    Could you imagine the sort of bizarre story Mark Twain would right about all that?
