Yes, Tennessee freshwater ones my dad gave my grandmother.
My favorite one is the Homer & Jethro version they recorded with June Carter before she married Johnny Cash.
Depends on what I'm eating it with. But Shrimp-fried, Pork-fried, then white.

It's a comedy/parody version of the standard.
Here's a YouTube link.

1. Do you own any pearls? Freshwater
2. How do you feel about Baby, It's Cold Outside? I was never super-offended by it and always read it as coy flirting
3. Steamed white rice :)

1. Lots. It is my birth stone. I have pearl earrings, a ring and several necklaces.
2. I like it.. Especially Glee version. For its time, I just see it as flirting.
2. White. I don't like fried one.

1. Do you own any pearls? I own a ring with a pearl on it but I never wear it. I've had it since I was quite young, but I can't remember whether it was for an occasion or not.

2. How do you feel about Baby, It's Cold Outside? I don't know what that is.

3. Fried rice or white rice? Fried.

3. Fried, white, brown, plain boiled, rice almost any way you can think to fix it, I adore it.

pearls - beautiful 2 strand fresh water iridescent
given to me by my husband

a cute teasing song - i was never offended
the truth - in courtship the woman wants to be pursued

rice - with chinese fried
home i use brown

Yes I do own pearls.

The band that my daughter plays in sometimes play that song. I know that in these times it is politically incorrect but I like it and are not offended by the lyrics.

White rice

1. I have a few things made of freshwater pearls and a pearl ring my aunt gave me.

2. I really don't think it's about rape.

3. White. Unless the fried rice has pineapple.

1. no

2. I still like the song. If I were to go all 'that's inappropriate!' on that song, I'd have to take issues with a lot of other songs as well.

3. depends what else I'm eating.

—No, they’re really not my favorite.
—I don’t find it offensive. There’s nothing to be offended about. 🤷‍♀️.
—No rice, usually. Fried if I really had to choose.

Yes - I love them and have been buying pearl necklaces and earrings since I was in university. Most are nothing special, but they make me happy. I even learned to string my own.

It has gorgeous harmonies. I read once that it needs to be put in the context of the times, and that the female singer is going through the motions but is actually making her own choices. From the way she sings, I can believe it; she doesn’t come across as submissive or pressured, especially at the final line.

Yes. Both have their place.

1. I do, even a strand of black pearls from Tahiti
2. I like it and can't honestly understand the crap surrounding it. It's a freaking song and not an anthem for date rape.
3. Fried rice, please.

1. I have one or two items with small real pearls in them and some fake pearls on costume jewellery.
2. I've never liked it much, I don't really see it as offensive - it's obviously meant to be light-hearted bantering - but it's just not my kind of thing.
3. I like both, so it depends what I'm having it with and my mood.

1. yes
2. Some people have called it the most "date rapey" song ever. Those people have obviously never heard I Gotcha by Joe Tex.
3. I like both, it depends on what I'm eating them with.

Yes.

Its okay. I like the Glee version a lot.

Depends on what I'm having with it, but I'm partial to fried rice.
