Alternative Census Questions – Not Entirely Serious.


What a debacle the 2016 Census has been. During the website crash, the hashtag #alternativecensusquestions started trending on Twitter. The questions tickled my funny bone so I thought I would Blog some of them. A lot of them are from songs.

  • Is she really going out with him?
  • Can you hear the drums, Fernando?
  • Whatever happened to Cotton Eyed Joe ? Where did he come from ? Where did he go ?
  • Am I ever going to see your face again?
  • Have you tried turning if off and on again?
  • Have you ever used the word “Girt” in a sentence?
  • War – what is it good for?
  • Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
  • Do you really want to hurt me? Do you really want to make me cry?
  • Why do birds suddenly appear?
  • How many people play PokemonGo in your household?
  • Does my bum look big in this?
  • How many weeks will it take for Australia to have a new Prime Minister?
  • Do you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain?
  • Do you believe in life after love?
  • Was ‪#thedress blue and black or white and gold?
  • What’s the first rule about Fight Club?
  • You’ve gotta ask yourself a question: do I feel lucky? Well, do ya’, punk?
  • How much is that doggie in the window?
  • Who let the dogs out?
  • What is the new black?
  • Should I stay or should I go now?
  • To be or not to be?
  • How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
  • Can I phone a friend?
  • Is this the real life. Is this just fantasy?
  • Will you still need me, will you still feed me, When I’m sixty-four?

Hope that made you smile.
