DINAO Round 13 – The John Hughes Tribute Edition

Posted By on August 13, 2009

Scarlet suggested doing a John Hughes tribute for Death Is Not An Option with some of our favorite characters from his movies. I think there is no better way to honor him, the man who made the movies that defined our youth.

As a reminder, the object of this game is when given an option of two people below, you have to pick one to sleep with. The caveat being death is not an option. You have to pick one! All the other rounds can be found here.

Without further ado…

    1. Bender – Blane was always a little too whiny for me.
    2. Ferris – You see what kind of shenanigans he can get into OUT of bed…
    3. Duckie – Because “he must practice on melons or something.”
    4. Clare – She at least has a nice rack. And won’t steal my wallet.
    5. Clark – Lesser of two turn offs
    6. Cameron – I always had a crush on him. Still do, actually.

    1. John Bender.
    2. Ferris Bueller. Jake Ryan is too wholesome or something. He doesn’t seem like he would be as much fun in bed as Ferris.
    3. Duckie because I might snap Farmer Ted in half.
    4. Allison because all I see now with Claire is “Secret Life of American Teen Mom”
    5. Clark. He’s a dork, I like dorks.
    6. Cameron. He needs a pity fuck.
    .-= regan´s last blog ..induction! finally! =-.

  3. Steph T says:

    1) Bender – he’s bad boy hot!
    2) Jake Ryan – YUM!
    3) Duckie – he’s cute in the odd sort of way
    4) Claire – just because I always wanted to be her
    5) Clark – because he is hilarious
    6) Cameron – because he nerdy hot!

  4. See, this is what I’m talking about. None of these would make me want to kill myself.

    1. John Bender
    2. Ferris Bueller
    3. Duckie because I’ve wanted to do him since I was like 6 or something
    4. Allison because you know she is probably kinky
    5. Uncle Buck – Clark is a bumbling fool and probably wouldn’t get it in or something
    6. Cameron HOTT

    2. Jake – he’s just so pretty (I agree).
    3. Duckie – definitely.
    4. Allison – I’ve always preferred the “weird” girls.
    5. Griswold
    6. Cameron – I don’t find him cute, but he’s sweet.

    Zomg what an honor!

    1. John bender- his hair is weird, but love the jean jacket.
    3. Farmer Ted? I’m going to be honest here, I don’t remember either of these guys. I’m not as familiar with his “earlier works”.
    4. Claire- Hate girls who hide in their coats (main girl on Freaks and Geeks I’m looking at you!)
    5. Clark Griswald- Duh! He tries so hard. And I love a big Christmas Tree.
    6. Cameron- Because I could help him loosen up and I’ve never seen Weird Science.

  10. Raven says:

    Dude, all of them are easy except for the last one.

    Bender- no explanation necessary
    Jake- LOVE and in real life he is good with his hands! (Master Carpenter, right?)
    Duckie- He’s the Duck Man.
    Claire- she went after Bender right? She’s got some naughty in her somewhere.
    Clark- So he’d do the sandwich dance for me.
    Wyatt-he ended up in her panties, he must know SOMETHING.

    Wyatt v. Cameron was hard. Can I have them both?

    1. Bender
    2. Both! Jake if I can only have one.

    1. Bender – I love a bad boy…
    2. Jake – Yeah, definitely Jake.
    3. Duckie – He’s adorable! And so sincere!
    4. Allison – Claire doesn’t look like she’d be too interested unless it was making out just to get guys’ attention.
    5. Griswold – I have a soft spot for him after Vegas Vacation.
    6. Cameron – Um, he resembles my bf. ‘Nuff said.

    2. Ferris
    3. Duckie

    5. Clark
    6. Cameron

  20. 1. Blane
    2. Ferris Bueller
    3. Duckie
    4. Allison
    5. I can’t believe this, but Uncle Buck. Are Clark Griswold and Chevy Chase the same person? If they’re not then they must be twins. and I HATE Chevy Chase, hence, no Clark for me.
    6. Wyatt

  21. Julie K says:

    1. Bender. No worries about a last minute prom ditching; no horrible prom dress. Just 40s in a brown bag
    2. Jake. He had a car! (And also the hotness)
    3. Farmer Ted. Love Duckie, but he was a bit…overwhelming. Ted had other friends.
    4. Allison. She’s prepared if you ever have to jam.
    5. Uncle Buck. Particularly in the pancake division
    6. Wyatt all the way.

  22. Tiffaney says:

    1. Blaine. Always
    2. Jake. Always wanted that damn Jake. But with age comes wisdom: he’s too good looking, he probably sucks in bed b/c he never had to work for it. And my college sweetheart was a deadringer Ferris lookalike and had the same charm so been there done that.
    3. Ted. He’d be so grateful, he’d do anything you tell him.
    4. Claire. Only because DINAO. Seriously.
    5. Clark. That smirk spells trouble.
    6. Cameron. Loyal, humble, compliant. (hmm, I think I see a pattern here?)

  23. -R- says:

    OMG, who are these people NOT PICKING JAKE RYAN?! What is wrong with them?!

    Ok, anyway.

    1. Blaine. He’s cuter.
    2. Jake Ryan, duh.
    3. Ted. I think Ted would be sweet. Ducky would just be weird.
    4. Claire. She’s cuter and also cleaner.
    5. Clark. Eh, neither appeals to me.
    6. Cameron. I don’t think I’ve ever seen all of Weird Science. Cameron seems like a good (but depressed) guy.

  24. Kelly says:

    1. John Bender baby he was so hot in that movie
    2. Jake Ryan (of course)
    3. Duckie, shudder
    4. Allison, can’t stand a prissy chick like Claire
    5. Clark Griswold, he can make me laugh my arse off
    6. Cameron
    .-= Kelly´s last blog ..Where Am I?? =-.

  25. Dude, John Hughes would love this idea. Well done.

    3) Farmer Ted (hey, if the hottest girl in school thought he knew what to do . . . )
    4) Claire
    5) Clark Griswold

    (Adding my own honorable mention) – Steff, the mysteriously hot James Spader a la “Pretty in Pink”. I’d take him over any of the above except for #2.

  26. Oops – and #6, Cameron. Gotta love him: “Please don’t say we’re not going to take the car home . . .”

    I always wanted to do it inside that glass table.
    3. Duckie
    He sings!
    4. Allison
    I think Claire would be all “Ewww, what’s that?” and my self-esteem couldn’t take a chick freaking out at my girly parts.
    5. Uncle Buck
    It’s the cigar. I know, blame Bill Clinton.

    4. Claire, her 80s dance moves are awesome.
    5. I am embarrassed to say, I am unfamiliar with these two gentlemen, but I am going with Clark – because he reminds of tim robbins character in A Sure Thing who always sings show tunes.
