Toronto Wrist-Slaps Quiz-Whoring Narcissists
One of my favourite things to do during down-time is take personality quizzes that aggrandize me in some show-offable way. What movie are you? Which Sex and the City Character are You Most Like? Rate Your Dating Style!
And given how many MySpace bulletins composed of Q & A's with self-excusing titles like "soooo b0red!" or "stolen from sheila" I get in a day, it's clear I'm not alone in this inclination.
Which is why this quiz on TakeTakeTake.ca was so exciting: "What's Toronto's Take on You?" It was like, oh snap, I never realized my city would have an opinion about where I belong in its gleaming array of subcultures and whatnot.
So I take the quiz, even though I've only been to Toronto once, and get the following message: "You're passionate about where you live." Okay, I don't live in Toronto, but if I did, hell yes! that would be true. After buttering me up thus, it goes on to say, "Almost 30% of people living in Toronto's neighbourhoods remain below the poverty line."
Then get this: it asks me to give a damn. Given that it totally caught me in "mirror, mirror" mode, I might just donate some shekels to assuage my guilt.
Both sites by Brand Infiltration for United Way Toronto. Props out to CD @paiiige, who baited us with it on Twitter.

Why does the Take Take Take site direct me to a microsoft site? Bad URL?
Just tried it. Looks like the site's dead. =P
So...how do I go about getting a job writing shitty quizzes? I think I hear destiny calling...

Please answer my stupid questionnaire or you'll break the chain. And since I'm a selfish asshole friend I'm going to pass on my bad luck to save myself and make you possibly have self-fulfilling bad luck. Thanks for playing!
