“No thanks, Tom Hanks”
“Only if you hold my hand, baby”
“Do it yourself!”
Nothing, and just stare
You came into this world through your mama. How do you want to go out?
Black-market Pokemon card deal gone wrong
In your sleep after a long night of studying
Drowning in a vat of fondue at a masquerade party
Taken out by your pet robot in 40 years
Riding a nuclear bomb down to Earth, whipping your cowboy hat around like the rodeo master you are
Wiping out after doing a sick shred on the edge of a drained swimming pool
Like Thelma and Louise
You’re a ssssssnake floaty! You’re a shady dude with a shady mood. You deserve a sneaky inflatable green creature to hopefully keep you afloat in your aquatic endeavors.
You’re a duck floaty! You’re trusty, reliable, predictable — you’re also a basic bitch. Sorry.
You’re a giraffe floaty! Your extraness can only be embodied by a long, elegant, inflatable neck with your legs wrapped around it as you gently traverse the waters of the deep end. You may get those spots mistaken for those of a brown cow.
You’re a beetle floaty! You’re part spooky and part harmless, like a ladybug. Sometimes they pee on you.
You’re a Clydesdale horse floaty! You’re the machoest macho man, you’re everyone’s trusty steed for the most part, and you definitely enjoy a little showboating every now and then (maybe).
You’re a hippopotamus floaty! You may be lazy, but you do it in the most extravagant ways. Way to go, hon.
You’re a unicorn floaty! You’re a rare gem to find, boo. Just the right mix of uncertainty, childhood dreams and glitter (whether or not you hate it). What a magical being.
