Talking Fun question - Which disc makes the best platebee?

Formed out of a random chain of thoughts the other day, I got to thinking, which PDGA approved disc would make the best "Platebee"?
(Yes we're talking about making a frisbee into a plate. Can we have some fun here?!!)

For me, it would need to fit the following criteria:

Reasonably lightweight and portable - If you're packing it into your backpack you probably wouldn't want to be hauling around a 200g Condor. Bonus points if it can be folded/rolled up and fit easily into your gear.
Sanitary - No grooves in the flightplate, or hard to reach edges where bits of food could get stuck and not clean-up easily. Should clean-up with relatively little effort.
Ergonomic - Should be easy to hold and easy to eat from.
FUN TO THROW! - Most importantly, it should be an easy and fun disc to throw and catch. Something that will allow you and your buddies to work off those campfire calories after a big meal.

I'd REALLY like to give the nod to a 100g Polecat (mostly for the fun factor and weight), but DX plastic and the sharp angle rim both are knocks against it. Personally, I'd probably end up going with a 150-something glow Ion, mostly for ergonomics, the quality of the plastic, and the glow/fun factor.

What platebee would you choose?

I think the 86 Softie would make a good platebee.

Just don't serve anything hot in your platebee. It will warp the flight plate. I speak from experience.

Something hard (easy to clean) and domey (holds more food). Maybe a lightweight Lucid Judge.

Mini wiz nails the packability, weight, and fun/catch factors. Sort of small as far as plates go, tho...

Not the same as Platebee, but I have a traveling disc that gets photographed at every new course I have played. I am still missing a few that I have played that I did not have this disc with, but this Gold Line Villain is up to 111 courses.

Any frisbee is fine. If I were going to bring one along I would bring a Makani.
