How well do you know your spouse?

My mom is throwing a bridal shower in a couple of weeks and we were talking about games to play. This got me thinking about my bridal showers and the games we played. One in particular involved questions answered by Jon and lots of bubble gum. My mom asked me to find the questions so that we can play the same game at the bridal shower she is throwing. So after much searching...ladders...attic...boxes...I finally found the bag of questions. I was reading through them and thought this would make an entertaining post.

The rules...Jon was given the list of questions and had to come up with answers. Then at the shower everyone took turns asking me the questions, if I didn't know the answer or got it wrong I had to put a piece of bubble gum in my mouth. I think I did pretty good, but I ended up with a huge amount of gum in my mouth.

The questions...
