Which Islander Floats YOUR Boat?

Ok, so we know they couldn't get a boat to float to save their lives, literally, but which one of the bunch would you like most like to spend a three-hour-whoops-try-10-years-and-then-some tour with and WHY?

Vote only once. No threesomes allowed in this poll!

yes, yes, this is a duplicate... I thought I was doing it all so carefully, but... well, I forgot to click the little poll BOX. *sigh* mods, please remove any trace of my stupidity!

Ok, so thanks Donn, for the idea! You are now free to vote for MaryAnn (I wuold have preferred her too, were I into the girl on girl action thing).

I voted Professor. I mentioned earlier I had a crush on Gilligan in my earlier days (as a 7-9yo- loved his hats!), but it was the Professor who carried me through my early 2 digit ages. But seriously, how smart can you be and *still* not know how to fix a leaky boat? And where did he get all those coconut radios? I think he and MaryAnn had a thing going on though, underneath the palm trees....

Have you ever noticed that in comparisons of television women (i.e., the two women on Gilligan's Island, or the two on WKRP, or the two on Three's Company), American men always choose the woman who is the wholesome one, never the sexpot?

Oh, but my husband is dual Canadian/American. Maybe that's it...

Have to say, if I was inclined that way, the professor would be my choice.

If it were actually a 3 hour tour, Ginger might gain more votes. But, in the end, a sultry dance does not satisfy as much as a good cherry pie*.

Donn





*Cut it out! I am talking about episode 12: 3rd season where Maryann cooks a cherry pie to lure the headhunters away from making Gilligan their Queen.

See! It was an innocent comment.

fugazied, put your vote where your post is, vote for Ginger. There is one vote for Ginger at the moment and that vote is mine. I thought I was the only one who did vote for Ginger. Now you claim you voted; but, you never followed through or maybe you need additional instructions on how to vote (too many years of pulling the blue lever next to the fish.) Step up and cast that vote for Ginger.

Was that too over the top? They claimed they voted for Ginger yet when I look at the poll Ginger's name is slanted indicating that I voted for her [and I did much earlier in the poll.] In many ways Ginger was a deer caught in the headlights kind of person. In her own way she was a lot puppy.

She was a "lot puppy," in fact, she struck me as a bit of a hound dog...

Yes, fugazied, vote! Put your mouse clicker where your mind is!
