I would like to have a tea party with Lizzy Borden, It would be interesting to have an oppertunity to pick her brain...actually at this point I would need a medium to have this tea party but just imagine how nightmarishly interesting that would be.

I would have a tea party with Vermin Supreme-

Taken from Wikipedia-

Vermin Love Supreme is an American performance artist,anarchist and activist who is known for running as an alternative candidate in various local, state, and national elections in the United States.

Supreme is known for wearing a boot shaped hat and carrying a large toothbrush. He claims that if elected President of the United States, he will pass a law requiring people to brush their teeth. He also campaigned in 2012 on a platform of zombie apocalypse awareness (and zombie-based energy plan) and time travel research, and he promises a free pony for every American.

Imagine the conversation at that tea party...

I'd love to have a tea party with Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan), Kenneth Parcell (Jack McBrayer), and Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) from "30 Rock."

Of course, they would have to remain in character for the duration.

I'd have afternoon tea with my grandmother one more time...She was scottish and had tea every afternoon between 3:30 and 4:30, with a lovely pot of tea and some biscuit or scone. She used to invite my friends, and at first I was embarrassed, but my friends loved it! What's not to love about a bit of friendship,some caffeine and yummies?

he's not crazy, but what an imagination! he has a brilliant mind.

Madame Mari Mortem said...

A mad tea party isn't a mad tea party without the Cenobites.
Each one, would be a unique conversation experience.

... it'd also be interesting to know if Pinhead likes his tea with cream or sugar... might just be tears and a drop of suffering.

Hushgirl said...

If it has to be someone who is alive it would have to be Johnny Depp, I think he is a very interesting individual. If it could be anyone alive or dead it would be Edgar A. Poe, without a shadow of a doubt!

badbonz said...

i would like to have tea with the joker.and ask him why so serious

Mouse said...

Of fictional characters: Fire Nation Princess Azula, from Avatar: The Last Airbender. Machiavellian manipulator and badass villain extraordinaire--and only fourteen! Oh, and also totally unhinged. That too.

Of real people: Virginia Woolf. What a lovely person to have tea with. I would love to hear her talk about--well, anything, if we're being honest.

Shirley Manson from Garbage; she would make an awesome mad tea party guest!

cemetery girl said...

That is a difficult question. Some invitees: Edgar Allen Poe, Alaister Crowley, Arthur Conan Dolye, Frieda Kahlo, Sylvia Plath, William S. Burroughs. Wolfgang Amadeus....he has always intrigued me.

Hannibal Lector and Honey Boo boo.
If he didn't kill himself first, I wonder if he could bring himself to consume her.

vintagepix said...

Maybe a mad tea party with some off-kilter if not outright insane Victorian artists like some of the pre-Raphaelite crew, Richard Dadd or even pioneer photographer Eadweard Muybridge. (Given that Dadd & Muybridge were both murderers as well, I'm not sure how safe this gathering would be!)

madeleine said...

My tea party guest would be Marie Laveau.

iluvhallow33n said...

I would like to have a tea party with the villains from Stephen King's novels. They are plenty crazy and evil, but always with reason and purpose.

Unknown said...

For me, Tim Burton or maybe Charles Addams.

I would love to have a tea party with some of my scientific heroes, not only were they geniuses and inspire me to go to work everyday but most of them were batshit crazy.

H.P Lovecraft and Phillip K. Dick would be my guests. We could converse about Gnostic Christianity and the Necronomicon while gnawing on blueberry pop tarts.

Shananigan said...

Oh my, this is a hard one. So many mad people I want to have tea with!
Edgar Allan Poe, Alfred Hitchcock, Edward Gorey, Douglas Adams, Tim Burton, the list goes on. But if I had to pick one, it would be Leonardo Da Vinci, that man was so mad! I would just love to pick his brain and listen to him talk about the world and his inventions. Plus I would have to ask if that was him dressed like a woman in the Mona Lisa!

I'd love to have tea with Terry Pratchett--his books have such a quirky humor that tickle my sense of ridiculous!

redfraggle said...

Tim Burton, Roman Dirge, Jhonan Vasquez and Brian Froud. How can you wrong with the likes of Lenore, Invader Zim and some of the darkest faeries ever created?

Ron said...

I'd have a tea party with Minnesota representative Michelle Bachmann. Then I'd need a stiff drink and a long nap. And perhaps shock therapy.

cynthia campos said...

I'd have tea with Charles Bronson 8{D

Cynthia Campos crj15@msn.com

Pugsley said...

Dorothy Parker. I've got nothing nice to say about anybody, either.

Deidre Lynn Christopher said...

I would have a tea party with Hunter S. Thompson if he was still alive. But I'm pretty sure he would spike the tea with something, but talk about interesting conversation.

I'd like to have a tea party with Dwayne Johnson, Jon Stewart and Christopher Walken. They aren't crazy but the conversation sure would be!

Carla said...

hmm...my tea party special guest would have to be....the characters from the Black Dagger Brotherhood. All of them. But if I could only have one, it would be Vishous.

For "real" people I would have to say Georgia O'Keeffe. Queen of Skull Art!

robot56 said...

Goody goody gum drops a tea party. I would invite Charles Bukowski, Lilith the Demoness, God and The Devil (conflicting points of view here should liven things up) and last but not least Scarygirl to keep order.

No party games though, there would be too much cheating...

Candace Jedrowicz said...

I'm afraid I am the craziest person I know, and if I have one more conversation with myself over tea, I shall never be released

Paul Potts said...

If I had the powers of Bill and Ted (Excellent Adventure), I would go back in time and collect Vlad the Impaler, Mama Cass, Edgar Allan Poe, Rasputin, Nixon and about a dozen others. It would be a costume tea party and most likely turn into a food fight. That would be radical. Party on dudes.

Liz said...

Definitely Helena Bonham Carter and/or Tim Burton!

Geralyn MacVittie said...

I would have a tea party with John Waters. As a longtime resident of Baltimore, I can't imagine anyone more fun.

Skye said...

Any one person alone wouldn't cut it... it's a tea 'party' after all... no, you'd have to do combos to get the most crazy... like Jim Carrey and Robin Williams ... or Bruce Campbell and ... Whoopee Goldberg.. oh gods... why did THAT combo pop into my head? lol

Will Rawlings said...

Tatum O' Neil. Ultra weird.
