I surveyed friends, family and co-workers. This involved over fifty people (ages ranged from 15 to 87), more than half were male.
The original survey had ten questions. I was only able to use four of the ten because most of the people who answered either 1) did not take it seriously or 2) had no clue.
Question 1: Name a best-selling vampire novel.
The number one answer was Twilight by an overwhelming majority.
Honorable Mention goes to The Vampire's Assistant which didn't make the top 6.
Most Amusing Answer: War and Peace
I was personally horrified that no one even mentioned Vampire Diaries.
Question 2: Name a way to kill a vampire
Stake through the heart won by a landslide.
Most Amusing Answer came from a co-worker who wrote: Let them work here for a day.
Question 3: Name an A-list Celebrity who has portrayed a vampire.
Actually Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt tied for first place. I gave Brad the number one spot because I just like him better.
Honorable Mention goes to Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattison from Twilight, though no one seemed to know their real names. They were commonly referred to as "the British guy" and "the girl with the lazy eye." (Does KS have a lazy eye?) One person wrote James Patterson (the author) – have to give them an A for effort.
Most Amusing Answers were Traci Lords (the porn star) who really did play a vampire in Blade and Johnny Depp (who to my knowledge has never played a vampire – at least not yet)
Question 4: Name a Vampire-inspired tee shirt logo
Team Jacob was the clear winner here.
Most Amusing Answer was Harry Potter. I'm not how or why people think JK Rowling's franchise is vampire-related but that's how they answered.
Question 5: Real or Fictional; Name a Famous Vampire Hunter
I had to throw this question out because the number one answer was Sarah Palin; followed by Charlton Heston. Apparently the word "hunter" confused some people.
One of the questions on the survey was: If you ever met a vampire; Name a question you might ask them. The answers were all over the place on this one. Here are the ones I found most amusing.
10. Boxers or Briefs?
9. Does diabetic blood taste sweeter than regular blood? (This was the only question even remotely vampire-related)
8. Did you take my pen?
7. Have you seen my phone?
6. Did you vote for Obama?
5. Did you bite my donut? (This came from a co-worker who left his donut unattended and came back to find a large bite mark in it)
4. Pirates or Ninjas? (the age old PVN debate)
3. You wanna buy some DVD's? (from our local "entrepreneur" cough, cough)
2. Can I borrow 10 bucks for lunch?
And the number one funny answer (IMO)
(Drum roll please)
"Why so serious?"
I thought that was CLASSIC!
