Shag, Marry or Push off a Cliff

I've decided it's time for a blast from the past . . . I stumbled upon an entry I made a few years ago where we played a fun little game called "Shag, Marry, or Push off a Cliff," and I thought it would be fun to play it again! It's from Bridget Jones's Guide to Life by Helen Fielding. Here are the rules:

In turn, each of the players suggests three names, e.g. Jeffrey Archer, Mohammed Al Fayed, Jonathon Aitken. The person on the player's right must then decide, if they absolutely had to shag one of them, marry another, and push another off a cliff, which it would be. It is usually best to pick three which are similar in some way:

~ Russell Crowe, Mr. Darcy, Hugh Grant
~ Colonel Gadaffi, the Ayatollah Khomeini, Idi Amin
~ Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, Al Gore
~ Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Sting

It doesn't matter if any of them are dead as it is only a game. This is also tremendous fun with lists of real people whom one knows. (Though this can be a little cruel. And should never be played with lists of people who are actually in the room).


For example: I would shag Hugh Grant, marry Mr. Darcy, and push Russell Crowe off a cliff.

See how easy this is? And fun, too! :D

To adapt the game to LJ, just give your answers to any set of names posted in the entry, or anywhere in the comments AND also post a new list of your own. You may give your answers to as many previous sets as you like, and you may come back and play as many times as you like, as long as each time you then post one new list. Fictional characters are allowed. Lists of men, lists of women, and lists which combine men and women are all allowed. What the heck. If you want to include other species, too, go for it. (Dalek, Slitheen and The Face of Boe)? Remember to read the comments before you play, so you'll see the lists that other players have added to the game. It seems to work best when the three names on the list are equally hot . . . or equally NOT. :D

So . . . I'll start off with a couple of lists:

~ Remus Lupin, Sirius Black and Severus Snape.

~ Mal, Wash and Jayne

~ Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton
(okay, so this one isn't really fair; they should all be pushed off a cliff). ;)

This one is better:

~ Buffy, Lara Croft and Xena

How about a literary one:

~Fitzwilliam Darcy, Frederick Wentworth and George Knightley



So . . . let's all play Shag, Marry or Push off a Cliff!


ETA: Don't forget to look at the lists other people are posting!

ETA the 2nd: Kevin wants to play, too. Here are some of his suggestions:

~ Crabbe, Goyle and Dudley

~ Dumbledore 1 (Harris), Dumbledore 2 (the other guy) and Gandalf

~ Arwen, Galadriel and Eowyn

And Connor provided these two (although he has no idea what "shag" means):

~ Dumbledore, Gandalf and Magneto

~ Lindsay Lohan, Ginny Weasley and Hermione Granger


Oh, and while we're at it, how about:

~ Godzilla, Mothra and Ghidorah

~ shag Remus, marry Sirius, push Snape off a cliff

~ um - I know which one Mal is ...

~ shag Lindsay, marry Paris, push Britney off a cliff. Lindsay is too much of a train wreck to marry but she still has potential, if Britney doesn't want to take bipolar meds then the kindest thing to do would be to push her, and I'd marry Paris for the money.

~ shag Xena, marry Lara, push Buffy. Buffy is such a whiner, and Xena lives in much more violent times than Lara (I'm guessing, never saw the movies or played the games).

Got one for you:

~ Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Jack Ryan

Shag Han, marry Indiana and push Jack Ryan off a cliff.

Sorry Jack, but I couldn't bear to push either of the others. Also, sorry Han, but wow, just think how COOL it would be to be the wife of Indiana Jones! Assuming he'd bring me along on his adventures. If not, then, um, not so much fun. Considering he sleeps with someone new in every movie, doesn't he? But we'll assume this is a FAITHFUL Jones, right? :D

Buffy, Lara Croft and Xena

I'd sleep with Lara Croft, marry Xena and push Buffy off a cliff.

Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin and Fred Flintstone?

Aug. 27th, 2007 05:21 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha! I ALMOST made one like that, only I couldn't think of whom to put with Homer and Peter. :D

Urgh. I'd shag Homer (OMG I can't believe I just typed that), marry Fred, and push Peter off a cliff.

Mostly, Fred wins my hand because, um, DINOSAURS! I'd put up with a lot to have a dinosaur as a pet. :D

I think I'd shag Jayne, marry Wash, and push Mal off a cliff. Mal would go off the cliff because I like all of those characters, and he tends to be able to survive the craziest things. XD

For the HP men, I'd shag Sirius, marry Remus, and push Snape off a cliff. Love Snape as a character, but not so much as a person.
here_be_dragons
Aug. 27th, 2007 06:32 pm (UTC)
LOL! I love your rationale for pushing Mal.

For me, I'd push Jayne (because he annoys me), and I think I'd shag Mal, and marry Wash. And then, when Wash dies, I'd marry Mal, too. :D (Or is that cheating)?

~ Shag Jayne, marry Mal, and push Wash off a cliff :((
~ Oh, god...shag Britney, marry Lindsay, and push Paris off a cliff. :|
~ Shag Xena, marry Lara, push Buffy off a cliff

And one for you: Severus Snape, Bill Weasley, Harry Potter

Aug. 27th, 2007 06:33 pm (UTC)
Hmnh. Okay . . . I'll shag Snape, marry Bill, and push Harry. Not because I don't love Harry, but EWWW he'll always be a kid in my mind, and that's just squicky otherwise. :D

Mmm. Marry Lindsay, shag Britney, and push Paris off a cliff. Push Paris off a very big cliff.

~ Buffy, Lara Croft and Xena

Buffy's the only one I halfway like, so Marry Buffy, shag Xena, and toss Lara Croft from a cliff.

Okay, a few lists for you:

Neville Longbottom, Draco Malfoy, Fred and/or George Weasley

Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger

Lucius Malfoy, Severus Snape, Igor Karkaroff

And I remember us talking about X-Men once, so:

Wolverine, Charles Xavier, Cyclops.

Aug. 27th, 2007 07:00 pm (UTC)
Hee! Okay, if we're doing HP kids, we're assuming that this is me when I was, like, 15, okay? :D

I'll shag Draco, marry Fred AND George, and push Neville off a cliff. :D

I'll shag Hermione, marry Harry, and push Ron off a cliff. I almost shagged Harry and pushed Hermione, but I'm not sure how easy she would be to live with, day in and day out. So, I'll go with Harry. I think he's a bit more easy-going. :D

(I'm gonna get in trouble for these, I just know it. Pushing Ron AND Neville? but I can't help it).

This one is easy: Shag Lucius, marry Snape, and push Igor. Buh-bye Igor.

Ooh! X-Men! YAY!

I'll shag Charles Xavier, marry Wolverine (*sighs happily*) and push Cyclops off a cliff. I've never liked him much.

(okay, so this one isn't really fair; they should all be pushed off a cliff).


You are on the right track (and so is K-Fed):
Shag Britney, marry her, push her off a cliff. Rinse and repeat with the others.

I was going to suggest Gollum, Jar-Jar Binks, and Dobby, but I have a horrible feeling I suggested them last time so time for a sweat-off instead...

Cheney, Falwell, DeLay
here_be_dragons
Aug. 27th, 2007 09:41 pm (UTC)
Hahahahaha!

I can't do this one. I just can't. I MUST PUSH THEM ALL!!!!!!

Okay . . . so I'll try . . .

Shag Cheney. Lesser of the evils, or something. Marry Falwell. He's oldest; he'll die soonest (hopefully). DeLay . . . buh bye.

Also your first option is just sick. But still . . . shag Gollum (ARGH!), marry Dobby (he does windows, right?) and push Jar-Jar because that just has to happen. :D

How about:

Professor MacGonnagal (did I spell that correctly? I honestly don't know anymore), Professor Sprout and Professor Hooch

Ok...
Arwen, Galadriel and Eowyn

Marry Eowyn (in case of any future bar fighting backup needs), Shag Galadriel (tall, amazonian) and push Arwen (movie Arwen, book Arwen was almost non-existent and ok...too many scenes in the movie just to get Liv Tyler on screen...plus, her lips remind me of her daddy).

Buffy, Lara Croft and Xena

Shag Lara (Tough luck Brad, you knew she'd wander eventually), Marry Buffy (same thing about the bars), and then, while jumping off a cliff, shag Xena...she can fly ya know...

Lindsay Lohan, Ginny Weasley and Hermione Granger

Shag Hermione (she's legal now). Marry Ginny (gotssss me a thing for freckly redheads) and push Lindsay...unless she's wearing the Hermione outfit she wore on SNL and then shag her and then marry her and then shag her and then...

Kate Winslet, Kate Beckinsale, Kate Bosworth
Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince Harry
Socrates, Descartes, Nietzsche
RuPaul, Dame Edna, Eddie Izzard

Re: Ok...
Ha ha ha ha. I can't decide what to do with the LotR gals; I kinda hate to push any of them off of the cliff. I happen to LIKE movie!Arwen. Come on - you've got to admit that the scene where she summons those water horses at the river was WAY cooler than the way they did it in the book. Who wants to see a boyelf do something like that? LAME! :D :D :D

Okay . . . I'm going to have to Google Kate Bosworth. Okay . . .

Shag Beckinsale. Cuz she's just plain hot. Marry Winslet, from what I hear, she's a good mommy; we could have picnics with our kids and stuff. And I'll push Bosworth, since she's kinda icky looking and I don't know anything about her anyway. :D

Um . . .EWWWW! Okay, I'll shag Harry, marry William and push Charles. (No problems deciding which one to push off the cliff here).

LOL. I don't even know how to rate the hotness of these guys. So, I'll shag Socrates, marry Nietzsche and push Decartes off a cliff. Nietzsches not bad, moustache notwithstanding. :D

The last four I can't even contemplate. (I thought of doing a similar one; I'd have probably done Eddie Izzard, David Bowie and Dr. Frankenfurter).

Okay . . . shag RuPaul, marry Dame Edna, and push Eddie Izzard off a cliff. No rhyme or reason to it. :D

And for you . . .

Heh. Eddie Izzard, David Bowie and Frankenfurter *can't resist singing "neener neener neener*

How about one more:

Larry, Moe and Curly.

Bwahahahaha!

Darcy - overrated stuck-up prick: cliff; Wentworth - ooh, hello sailor! shag; Knightley - boy next door: marry.

Henry Crawford, Mary Crawford, George Wickham.

Which would you truly marry, madly shag, and push deeply off a cliff?

Hans Gruber, Col. Brandon, Severus Snape.
here_be_dragons
Aug. 28th, 2007 03:25 pm (UTC)
Oh, but I LOVE Fitzwilliam. Then again, I love Knightly, too. And you've got a point about sailors . . . Still, I'm sure I'd end up pushing Wentworth; he's just not as memorable as the other two. And I think I'd have to marry Darcy. I just would. :D

Okay, I think I'll shage Wickham (why not, eh?), marry Henry (he's certainly the better choice of those two), and push Mary, mostly because I hardly even remember anything about her at all.

Ah . . . here are some decisions.

I'll shag Severus. He has too many "issues" to be a good long-term prospect anyway), and I'll marry Col. Brandon. Yes, there are lots of good reasons for that, right? Even if maybe he's not as charismatic as Hans, Hans is, after all, evil. So, he shall be the one to get pushed.


For you:

~ Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson and Jennifer Ehle

~ Elizabeth Bennett, Emma Woodhouse and Elinor Dashwood

Crowe's going off the cliff. I'm shagging Hugh Grant. And I'm marrying Mr. Darcy (because then I get to shag him too.)

Marry Al Gore. Shag Bill Clinton. Push Blair off the cliff.

Marry McCartney, shag Sting, Jagger's going over. (His lips'll cushion his fall.)

Marry Black, shag Snape (you know he's a kinky SOB) and unfortunately Remy's going over.

Marry Mal (same reason as Darcy), shag Wash, and Jayne's going over because he can get out of some pretty weird things.

Marry Buffy, shag Xena, Lara's going off the cliff.

Faith, Willow, Tara?

Kaylee, Inara, River?


(Also, you don't break my browser anymore but you're awfully narrow now. Sheesh, I can't be satisfied can I?)
here_be_dragons
Aug. 28th, 2007 04:31 pm (UTC)
LOL about Jagger's lips. :D And poor Remus! (But yeah, Snape = kinky). ;)

I'll shag Faith, marry Willow and push Tara off the cliff (because I'm not really sure who she is; I STILL haven't watched all of "Buffy")

Oh, ouch. I don't want to push any of these gals . . . but . . .

I'll shag Inara, marry Kaylee (because she is the BEST), and I'll push River because, you know, indestructable, right? (SORRY, River).


Hmnh. Maybe I can figure out how to get my journal to be a percentage of the screen. Right now, I have to set it with fixed pixel width margins, which kinda sucks. I'll see what I can do about that. It seems likely I can find some code to do percentage, since bunches of other layouts do it that way. :)

Oh . . . and new:

Buffy, Anita Blake or Sookie Stackhouse

Or, if you haven't read the "Southern Vampire Series" you can do:

Buffy, Anita Blake and Stephanie Plum
