Return of the Feud, number 10 [Game Over].


Here are the rules. PLEASE read them!


~~~RULES~~~

1. DO NOT READ THIS THREAD BEFORE YOU POST YOUR ANSWERS, lest you see the other answers. Scroll really fast to the bottom, or hit "end" on your keyboard. We play by the honor system. There is a chance you won't get in the game after it's gone to two pages, it's just the way it goes. There is typically a lot of chatter posts that aren't answer posts, so give it a shot anyway!

2. Object of the game: Try to think of the most popular answer, to get the most people matching you. Google is allowed, if you desire. Only answers that are "serious" will be scored. Joke answers will not be considered, as it is not fair to other players.

3. Formatting rules:

If they are not followed, your answers might be DISQUALIFIED.

1. answer
2. answer
3. answer
4. answer

Make your list look like the one above. No double spacing. No periods (except for the one following the number.) No quote marks, no punctuation if it is not necessary! No smilies! No extraneous bullshit is allowed. If you feel you must qualify your answer, do it AFTER THE LIST!

The reason this is so important is because I cut and paste all the answers, and I have to edit each answer to make them identical. It is a lot of work, so please make it easier on me. Thanks.

Scoring - All matching answers will be worth 2 points each. For example: If 4 people match that means they each get 8 pts for that answer. No matches = 0 points.

The game will end when we have 50 entrants, or when we feel that no more people are going to play. I'll score as fast as time will allow.


Good luck!

1. Name a type of mathematics
2. Besides a rat or mouse, name a type of rodent people keep as pets.
3. Other than iceberg, name a kind of lettuce.
4. Besides white button, name a type of mushroom.
5. Name a wild bird.
6. Besides Thin Mints, name a Girl Scout cookie.
7. Name a kind of engineer.
8. Besides a butcher knife, name a kind of knife found in the kitchen.
9. Other than vegetable oil, name a kind of oil you cook with.
10. Besides eggs or the crust, what is an ingredient you would use in a quiche?

Dangit, I thought of bacon, but decided that quiche might be popular among vegetarians. But I have no excuse for not thinking of cheese!

6 - Besides Thins Mints and Samoas, what is there? Sure, I see other boxes in the wagon/on the table outside the supermarket, but I don't think I've ever bought them.
8 - I so wanted to say "boner", but I wasn't sure I'd get any matches

(for #7, I don't know if that will be the right answer at all, but we EE's have to represent. )

9. does that count? It is "a" vegetable oil, but it's not "vegetable oil". Or maybe it's a "fruit oil", actually, since there's a seed. Is this one of those botanical fruit/culinary vegetable things? If it doesn't count, I can't imagine what does, actually... fish oil? Do people cook with fish oil?

I wasn't sure one way or the other when I answered, but it was the first thing that popped into my head.

Why on Earth I didn't think of hamsters is a mystery.
