The American comedic actor, Don Knotts - because it would definitely be an entertaining meal from his interesting voice to his comedic expressions, gestures, and gags.

How would you spend a million dollars?
While I would rather keep working and SAVE all of the money in a high interest account for when I retire in 30+ years, if I had to spend all of it, I would:
- Buy/build a small, off the grid home with the latest conservation materials to live minimally with the smallest environmental impact.
- Donate a portion to church, humane societies, and other causes.
- Pick up more expensive hobbies like working with stained glass, glass blowing, etc.
- Set up a college fund for my nephew.
- Take a few extra vacations with my family and boyfriend
