Help me make a clever employee bio page.

I'd like to make an interesting and funny bio web page for the student employees in a college IT department. Can anyone suggest some funny questions to include in the bios?

I'd like it to include name, home town, year in school, and all the rest of the normal stuff. I'd also like it to include some silly and completely unrelated questions, like "Can you touch your nose with your tongue?" or "What movie could you watch fifty times in a row?"
Problem: I'm not very clever. Can anyone suggest some funny questions to include in the bios?

Somewhere (Wired maybe) there was an article where everyone listed their 5 dream Jeopardy categories. Something like that could be amusing, but you're going to have to give them a good example.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?
What could you do on David Letterman's stupid human tricks?
What's your favorite spam subject line?
What fictional character would you most like to eat?
What can most people do that you cannot?
And of course, how many five-year-olds could you take in a fight?

The "dream Jeopardy categories" thing from Douglas Coupland's Microserfs. That's the one I was going to suggest.

Two personality-revealing conversation-starters:

- If you could have one superhero power, would you choose the ability to become invisible or the ability to fly?

- Pirates or ninjas?

As a follow on to Dreama's question (HDD or wallet?) anyone who says they'd rather lose their wallet than their hard drive should then be asked to describe their backup strategy.
