Answers

Q: What do you call a cheese bun without any cheese in it?
A: A nasty surprise

The response you have chosen actually shows the role you play among your friends.

A. Take the bun back to the shop and get a new one.
You are a traditional thinker who is not easily thrown off guard by odd occurrences. You are somebody who can be relied on not to panic when something unexpected happens. However, you are not the type who will take command and lead the way. Rather, you tend to support leader types with your clear judgment and coolheaded advice.

B. Say to yourself, “These things happen,” and eat the empty bun as it is.
You are somebody who is very patient and flexible and you do not let surprise get under your skin. You accept what happens. This makes you extremely easy to get along with, and you could be the person to hold everyone in the circle of friends together. Since you do not make a fuss over things, you may fade into the background. You are only noticed when you are not around.

C. Eat something else.
You are a natural leader in any group, since you are quick to make decisions and quick to act. When things get out of hand, and the situation calls for one person to take charge and decide a course of action, you will do well. You don’t waste time thinking where to eat or what movie to catch. Indecision is not in your vocabulary. That air of confidence and authority means that when you speak, the people around you listen.

D. Try filling the empty bun with something else, such as peanut butter, or jam to make it taste better.
Your talent for coming up with innovative solutions makes you the idea generator in your clique. Everyone has common sense, but you see opportunities where others see only problems. Your creative instincts mean you may get carried away with yourself and people may think you are kind of eccentric occasionally. Whatever it is, they know you will definitely keep things interesting when a situation arises.

  1. What about giving the bun to someone?
    It either shows you have generosity, or that you are a sadist and like torturing people’s tastebuds, depending on how the bun tastes.

  2. Good idea, Ningdi. Since this quiz is about the roles that we play among our friends, it could mean that you are a giver in the friendship.

    What other possiblities are there?

  3. I would return to the shop to comment and tell them about their faults instead of demanding for a refund . They would be able to learn about their mistakes and repent , if they do not do so I would report them to the authorities.

  4. my answer would be B

  5. Do you think it’s true?
