Who advanced to the final? Did Beau show-up Brooks and return to the Winner’s Circle without him, or has the student become the the master? Did the Novak clan con their way in? Or did the masters of logic figure it all out? Is my nickname really “the dentist”?
I will keep this relatively short, as the winning score was only two shy of the total times my dear daughter threw up today.
|Pete / Beau||18|
|Christina / Brooks||20|
|Zee German / Novak||22|
|AMR / Gilman||22|
The champ has been knocked out. Upsets (?) across the board as the bottom two from the previous round in each group advance.
Here were your categories and answers
Danny Devito, Munchkin, Abbreviation, short cut, James Madison, summary, short fuseFortunately, Unfortunately (items of superstition)
Rabbit’s foot, Black cat, Four-leaf clover, Broken mirror, Horseshoe, Doppelgänger, Rainbow
Bantam Bulwyr (bad openings)
Abyss, Knock-knock joke, Creature, Pick-up line, Black hole, Gas leak, Bottomless Pit
Machine of Death (deadly machinery)
Woodchipper, Terminator, Ford Pinto, Lawn Mower, ATV, Chain Saw, Hydraulic Press
Hope you enjoyed the themes. You may or may not have noticed the good luck/bad luck items alternated. That was easy. What really took some work was coming up with seven answers for Fiction 59 that had exactly 59 total characters!
Creature was probably the hardest answer out there. I think Pete clued it best with “_____ Feature”. (“______ from the Black Lagoon” would have been a gimme). I don’t think anyone guessed it. You may be wondering WTF that has to do with bad openings. One Adobery Point TM to the person who figures it out.
Apparently there is some wood chipper action in this Fargo movie every one of you used for your clue.
One last tidbit. Here is the breakdown of who was chosen by the other group. Did you choose wisely?
