Return of the Feud, number 3. [CLOSED]


Here are the rules. PLEASE read them! No new twists this time.


~~~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!

Read the rules!

1. Besides cheese, name something you eat crackers with.
2. Name another word for "book."
3. Besides a pillow, name something you might rest your head on to go sleep.
4. Name an older actor who is in a lot of movies.
5. Name a place where people might have to use coins.
6. Other than wood, name a material that might be used when building a house.
7. Name something you eat that might roll away if you dropped it on the floor.
8. Name something you'd hate to find swimming around in your bathtub.
9. Name a word you might use to describe a dog that could also describe your partner.
10. Besides gas, name something you might buy at a gas station.

I'm surprised at how many people are calling Clint Eastwood somebody who's in a lot of movies. If you don't count a cameo and a documentary, he's only been in three movies in the last fifteen years; Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, and Trouble with the Curve.

I think you can easily read/interpret "who is in a lot of movies" the same as "who has been in a lot of movies" - at least, I did. Clint is in a lot of movies, the fact most of them were released more than 15 years ago isn't really a factor, IMO.

Reviewing the answers, some of these questions seem particularly susceptible to different interpretations -which is great, nice one Dolores .

Yeah, well, seeing as how I answered "arcade" for #5, you think I'm watching a lot of recent movies?

Those answering "bitch" for #9 are the ones who have some questions to answer.

Indeed! As well as needing marriage counselling and sensitivity training, not to mention basic human decency?

Me too, and I thought Samuel L. Jackson(age 69) was the obvious answer for this. Dude is in a ton of movies, turns 70 in a month, and is mainly famous for being in a ton of movies.
