Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?

"X or Y" Quizzes have been an Internet Mainstay since the first time a nerd noticed similarities between the names of sci-fi aliens and programming languages. While finding those earliest examples is beyond my Google-Fu skills (YOU try a search for 'x or y quiz'), here's a more recent example,"Web 2.0 or Star Wars?". MeFites who enjoyed the recent "Font or Cheese" quiz may have been unaware of the related "Band Name or Font" quiz. MentalFloss.com has frequently engaged in this kind of quizzery, either raising it to an art, or jumping it into the shark's mouth (Star Trek Character or Erectile Disfunction Pill, Harry Potter Character or Skin Disease, Moon-Landing Astronaut or Pro Golfer, Ben & Jerry's Flavor or Pottery Barn Paint Color) And just in case you thought this was a 'guy thing', try your luck at "New Perfume or Soap Opera Character?"

But the "x or y quiz to end all x or y quizzes" has just been put online by some terminally snarky t-shirt salesmen, with tongues in their cheeks and hands down their pants (obviously NSFW), it's "Pornstar Or Potato?"

Today's Special Quiz is Horror and Gothic, naturally.

Today's Special Quiz is Horror and Gothic, naturally. But tomorrow it could be Nabokov, Orwell, Beckett, Virginia Woolf, James Ellroy, Lorca or a lot of other writers featured in these amusing literary quizzes from The Barcelona Review. Just choose your own. Most quizzes are in English or Spanish; none are too easy or too erudite and, best of all, most of them have answers too.
