Do you have a favorite cartoon? I've never really watched cartoons. My favorite comic is

Top pick as your Karaoke song? I'm completely tone deaf, so anything I can get other people to sing with me.
Three things you would bring to a deserted island with you? Definitely a book, I never leave the house without one even if I'm just going to the store and coming straight home. I’d also bring something to light a fire with, and a blanket.
