Looking for suggestions ...

Next Wednesday, I'm going to be doing the "Table Topics" at my Toastmasters meeting. These are questions (I'm doing 18) that folks randomly pick and then have to speak about (off the top of their heads) for two minutes. Frequently, these are based on current events (I recall one that I got once that was about Tom Cruise getting dumped by his studio), but in the wake of an election, that can get dicey ... the ones I've come up with so far are fairly trite ("favorite color, and why?", "Batman or Superman, and why?"), but I'm running up against "knowledge pool" limits for stuff that I would think was a great question, but others might not have the background for (classic myths, assorted religions, sub-atomic particle physics, comparative hallucinogens, TV sci-fi trivia, etc.).

While I may fall back on the newspaper (hmmm ... "what is black and white and re(a)d all over?") for some "topics" if this gets too close to Wednesday, but I'm hoping that I might get some good suggestions from all you "Pixel People" out there in L.J.-land!
