Mutating Genre Meme - What The..?

Red mojo has tagged me for The Pharyngula mutating genre meme.There are a set of questions below that are all of the form:"The best [subgenre] [medium] in [genre] is…".Copy the questions, and before answering them, you may modify them in a limited way, carrying out no more than two of these operations: You can leave them exactly as is. You can delete any one question. You can mutate either the genre, medium, or subgenre of any one question. For instance, you could change "The best time travel novel in SF/Fantasy is…" to "The best time travel novel in Westerns is…", or "The best time travel movie in SF/Fantasy is...", or "The best romance novel in SF/Fantasy is...". You can add a completely new question of your choice to the end of the list, as long as it is still in the form "The best [subgenre] [medium] in [genre] is…". You must have at least one question in your set, or you've gone extinct, and you must be able to answer it yourself, or you're not viable.Then answer your possibly mutant set of questions. Please do include a link back to the blog you got them from, to simplify tracing the ancestry, and include these instructions.Finally, pass it along to any number of your fellow bloggers. Remember, though, your success as a Darwinian replicator is going to be measured by the propagation of your variants, which is going to be a function of both the interest your well-honed questions generate and the number of successful attempts at reproducing them.
My Ancestry:
My great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparent is Pharyngula.
My great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparent is Metamagician and the Hellfire Club.
My great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparent is Flying Trilobite.
My great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparent is A Blog Around the Clock.
My great-great-great-great-great-grandparent is archy.
My great-great-great-great-grandparent is Why Now?
My great-great-great-grandparent is Hipparchia.
My grea-greatt-grandfathers are Archaeopteryx and Kiefus.
My greatgrandfather is Catnapping.
My grandmother is BirdAnonymous
My Mom is red mojo.

My version of the questions:

• The best silly movie in comedy is: The Big Lebowski.
• The worst genre in pop music is: Gangsta Lounge.
• The best alt-country album in country music is: DANG ME! by Roger Miller.

To keep the meme alive, I'm passing it along to:


Rocky-This Is Me


EDIT: I'm taking a lot of heat from the various parents and grandparents of this meme. Simply stated, they don't like my original picks for "keeping the meme alive!" I dunno, if the leader of the free world isn't good enough for ya...

I hope the three bloggers I chose will be able to respond, mutate and propagate the meme.

Here are my original, unacceptable picks:

George W. Bush

Soupy Sales

My Brother, Scott

Hi Sonny Boy, Thank you for saving me from extinction!
Dang Me. Great Pick. I know every word to every song on that album. My Dad loved when I was a kid, so did I.
Passing the meme can be a bit of a burden to some, but fun for the right people.
