    Guess I answered too quickly. Well you said "first thing that comes to mind" so I was trying to answer quickly without overthinking. But since you asked for it--


    1) Black- Forgot to answer this because I was answering too quickly. Or I guess I could say I answered nothing because black is the absence of light in deep space and nothing is the equivalent of absence.

    2) Lucky: probability: one person's luck is another person's statistical fluke.

    3) honorable: good: Honorable people are good.

    4) elated: happy: synonyms

    5) prestigious: famous: prestigious things are often famous.

    I was trying to answer the first thing that came to mind so I didn't think of anything funny (sheep jokes may seem effortless but actually takes a great deal of thought! ) Maybe I'll give it some more thought and try to come up with funnier answers.

    1) Black jellybean (I just accidentally ate one)

    2) Lucky Strike bowling alley (I have recently been planning to go the NYC location)

    3) honorable: just (I think of being honorable as being just or right)

    4) elated: happy (No reason in particular)

    5) prestigious: high status (I think of prestigious as having high status or honor)

    1) Black - cold, lonely and without hope. Stood at the abyss once.

    2) Lucky - Me...I'm lucky. Every day is a bonus day, and I've been blessed beyond all my imaginings.

    3) honorable - something to strive for...goes along with integrity

    4) elated - the day my son was born

    5) prestigious - claimed by many - earned by few

    1) Black = Night

    2) Lucky = What dumb people count on for success

    3) honorable = Discharge. something I was happy to get

    4) elated = Happy, like the day I was hired and the day I retired

    5) prestigious = An honor award to someone that I probably never got
    When I used to be somebody (I'm center top)

    OK here's my funny version:

    1) Black sheep

    2) Lucky the sheep can't get in:



    3) Sheep appears before the Honorable sheepdog judge:



    4) elated sheep:


    5) prestigious sheep:



    Why? Because sheep are always good for a laugh or two!

    Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the "first thing that comes to mind?"

    I already posted the first things that come to mind. Unfortunately, they weren't all that funny. Contrary to popular belief, not everything at the top of my head is pure comedy gold!

    1) Black
    My dog Blackie because that's his name and he is black

    2) Lucky
    Me - overall life has been good

    3) honorable
    I'm not sure who or what that word applies to nowadays

    4) elated
    Happy - well that's what it means

    5) prestigious
    I'm not sure what's prestigious any more either. I suppose the word makes me think of awards or such based on accomplishment
    Arm the sheep!
