The Every Other Day Feud: Lame Excuse for a Feud by El_Kabong [Game Over]

RULES!

1. DO NOT READ THIS THREAD BEFORE YOU POST YOUR ANSWERS

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. Also, don’t try to score a zero, even with “serious” answers.

  1. Formatting rules: If they are not followed, your entire post will be DISQUALIFIED.

  2. answer

  3. answer

  4. answer

  5. 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 - Any answer duplicated by anyone else is worth 100 points divided by the number of entrants. For example: 50 entrant game = 2 pts per answer. If 4 people match that means they each get 8 pts for that answer. No matches = 0 points.

If any of you have ideas for Feuds -and would like me to score them- PM me and I’ll get you on The List.

The game will end either when we have 50 entrants, or at 3:30 PM Central on Thursday, 03/26/09 whichever comes first.
Good luck!

This one will take much longer to score, due to the variability of the answers, so two days to get your answers in, and I’ll score it Friday (my day off.)

Be creative! :smiley: (I’ll be lenient with the grammar rules.)
