Your job requires you and your loved ones to relocate to a remote but bucolic setting. You have, conveniently, been offered a choice between three options. Details to be found on the website..

Your job, by the way, is selling farm equipment. Although that may mean one thing in one place (horse-drawn tractors) and something else in another (moisture vaporators).

Tatooine for me. Could not live and work in the others because:

The Shire: I would be in the pub all day, having / attending birthday parties or off seeking treasure with strange dwarves amd wizards. In summary, my family would never see me and would probably be captured by orcs.

Pepperland: To damned weird...

So Tatooine: I would create an alliance with the Jawas to sell the agricultural equipment. I would then sell blue milk to the Sandpeople and use them as a "security" force. The farmers would pay me a small fee to ensure that they are protected. I would then slowly build my Jawas / Sandpeople empire, sit back whilst the Empire / Rebel Alliance destroy each other and step into the power vacum left behind. All squid musicians would be shot.

I voted for Pepperland.

But the again, I did grow up loving The Point...so I guess I'm comfortable with weird. :)

I loved the music of The Point. Harry nilsson, right?

I picked Pepperland. I do think it would drive me a bit bonkers, so I would have to be a blue meanie at least one week a month. More specifically, a Hidden Persuader. And then I would have my summer home in the shire.

Pepperland for me. Me and my family pretty much live in the ocean most of the summer, so I think year round would be cool. We all love seafood and my kids love to make horrible puns! Plus all of our friends would go with us cause they love the ocean just as much as we do!

Yes, Dana - it's Harry Nilsson! And Ringo Starr narrated The Point, so it all ties in. :)

The Shire all the way. I'd move into Frodo's old place and start a tobacco farm.....wacky tobacky, which I'd then sell. It'd be one big party in the Shire!

Until Gandalf shows up with some awful news or other saying we had to go on a quest...... :shock:
