Smack dab in the middle, as usual. With the exception of one finish in tho top ten, and one either last or next-to-last, I've been almost exactly in the middle every game I've played. I am consistent!

Thanks for the game, Dolores Reborn!!

I did OK on most questions. I'm surprised my answer for the disco group (Village People) wasn't more common, though. The Bee Gees really ran away with that one.

Fun game. I really overestimated Mr. Ed's popularity. I thought of Lassie, but for whatever reason assumed Mr. Ed would get more votes. Same thing on the thimble, thought it would get more votes. And then just totally whiffed on the Bee Gees.

Thanks for this game, Dolores Reborn!

I don't know if it affects the scores at all or not, but there's a definite problem with the reporting for question #3. Flipper isn't shown on the list at all but by my count, got at least 6 replies.

No, I really did misunderstand the question in the same way.

If I had looked at any of them, given how late I came to the game, I like to think I wouldn't have come in fourth from bottom!

I apologize; I am having a bad day and was clearly out of line.

Again, I directly and genuinely apologize to Teuton. I was wrong and regret the post.

It's been nearly twenty years since I've had a cat, and the rabbit just isn't the same.

Yeah... that's the ticket.

The battleship was always my favorite piece as a kid, but everybody else always tried to pick the racecar or the dog first so I went with what I thought was popular.

What kind of turkeys are you guys eating that taste like chicken? And seafood?? I always wanted to like frogs legs but they always tasted like three-day-old fish to me. Do you folks purge frogs like you do crawfish?
