I am compiling an all-female list, but I have only started....the thought of a conversation between Dorothy Parker and Sylvia Plath intrigues me, so I shall start with them, and go from there.

It would be interesting
Let us work a li'l bit backwards I chose Archie Bunker due to the fact that he could portray the typical human at the dinner table proving and displaying our imperfections, prejudices, and pride. He would be perfect prey for socrates to question and for once make look like a fool. Also he would show us a good spectacle towards his quote of the wisdom factor since Archie is full of pride lets see how he would be towards admitting that he knows nothing. He is the in laws at Thanksgiving.
We could all sit back and debate the discusion of the place of women which would be very iinterestingespecially with Plato and Archie, how about the government with all. We could have a few drinks and discuss the doctors oath. Cconfuciusand ssocratescould get us rolling comparing the wisdom qquoteand the qquotewhere there are only two kinds of people in this world that you cannot teach the very wise and the dumb.
I could go on and on but would type too much Laughing

Hi MG, Thanks for your explanation. Archie Bunker as everyman. It could work, especially with the rest of the guests.

No need to apologize for grammar and spelling.

I have two more women for my list, Mary Daly and Helen Gurley Brown, as I think it would be fascinating to hear them debate Cosmo as a feminist magazine, Dorothy Parker could make fun of them both, and Plath can pop in with something about hating men. This party is shaping up...

Cav, If you're going to invite Helen Gurley Brown, it would be only fair to warn the other guests about her appearance. I've seen her, and I was scared. Actually gasped. Her face looks like a plastic mask. A bit frightening if you come upon it unexpectedly.

Cav, Nefertiti's mummy to counterbalance the appearance of HGB? Interesting. Verrry interesting. Another plastic face I saw about a year ago was Joan Rivers. Another gasp. Scary stuff.

Problem with mummies is that their brains are removed (through their nasal passages), so intelligent conversation may not be a mummy's strong suit.

cjhsa; did u know that part of the 'optional turn signal package' 4 SUVs is a donkey engine that provides additional electric power to operate the signals (NASCAR track marshals pop out and wave appropriate flags)
the engine goes in the trunk, and the donkey in the driver's seat! Laughing

Nefertiti's mummy is the talk of the town...I am certain she would distract from HGB's strange visage.

cjhsa, You wanna invite Cameron Diaz nine times, fine by me. It's your party.

Cav, I'll be waiting for the show. I wonder if they'll get one of those forensic anthropologists to put a face on the skeleton. Tres intriguing.
