If you’re looking for some funny get to know you questions, you’re in the right place.

And questions like the following are less likely to get you the cold shoulder (or cold stare) than cheesy pick-up lines.
If you’re looking to at least get a laugh and maybe find a new friend, these questions are hard to ignore, because they’re fun to answer.
