If you could be reincarnated as ANY animal, what would you be?

I ask because, a few years ago, I revealed the animal that I'd choose in my syndicated humor column It Is What It Is. Click the link below to read the full column on my website www.lisasugarman.com.

I can't wait to hear which one you'd pick and why!

I would come back as an Elephant. They are loyal to family and devoted. They protect one another; love it for a large mammal they are so graceful when they walk.

Love it, John! Great choice.

Joe, are you attempting to background check several people? Most folks run a check on the one candidate that they are ready to make an offer to. It is time consuming as well as expensive.

Totally agree. Love Great Danes!

A hawk,they are free and do not have hunters after them

A hawk never even occurred to me. Terrific choice.

probably a tropical bird of some sort, because they live where its beautiful and warm and they are free

Makes perfect sense. Great choice.

So... does this animal have to be "real"?

If not, then I am going to have to go with griffin. Because they command the earth as much as they do the sky! Oh, the freedom...

If it does have to be a real animal, then I would probably want to be a koala bear. They are marsupial, and overall seem to lead a pretty chill life. Plus, chicks really dig their big, fuzzy ears and gray nose. :)

Absolutely brilliant! And no, it doesn't have to be real. I'm all for thinking outside the animal box. Love koalas, tho.

A dolphin or any aquatic animal. You'd be able to explore the great depths of the ocean that haven't been discovered yet.

Great point, Jennifer! I didn't even consider the ocean. Good thinking!

Ooooooo, hadn't even thought of the ocean!

Definitely a cat. I have a pet cat and I wish I could trade lives with her. She's got it made. Constant love, cuddles, petting, food, she sleeps all day, and does everything she wants. Better than the stressful day-to-day events us humans have to deal with.

I think you're on to something, Sulema. That sounds dreamy to me. Terrific choice.

A duck, because I could fly, swim and walk as I wanted.

Another great one! And another great thing about being a duck is that you'd automatically be able to let stuff like stress and tension roll right off your back.

I would want to be a badger. It's the animal I most identify with.
