Tuesday answers on Thursday

Wherein driving back from Florida we thought we'd count political bumperstickers and see if there was a preference. No luck, as all we saw was one Obama sticker. Somewhere on the Florida turnpike there is a McCain billboard and that should count for something. For comparison, we also saw two dead armadillos.


1. Seuss
2. The Celtic sport about tossing telephone poles.
3. no guess
4. Lake Superior
5. Green Day
6. He's my favorite honky, King Tut
7. Dana Delany was in two of them. Lost, and the first season of Desperate Housewives, involved people raising children who were not theirs. That sounds good, I'll go with it.

7. What unusual distinction is shared by, as far as I can tell, fewer than 20 people, including George Custer, Bette Davis, St. Dominic, Duke Ellington, William Halsey, Henry VIII, Douglas Macarthur, and Mozart? They've all been name-checked in the titles of Billboard Hot 100 number one singles. Other possible names on the list: Julian "Hey Jude" Lennon and "My" Sharona Alperin, currently selling real estate in L.A. No, I'm serious.
******************
Maybe not that unusual...

A Fifth of Beethoven was #1

Steve MCQueen (Sheryl Crow) was #87

Chuck E's In Love (Rickie Lee Jones) was #4; Chuck E. Weiss

Rosa Parks (OutKast) was #55

...Probably a lot more

1. Also, Sartre should be an acceptable answer, I'm pretty sure Ace Ventura and Me Myself and Irene are based on exestiential questions regarding the nature of consciousness first discussed in "Being and Nothingness"

2. So, this sport has nothing to do with Kegel excercises? (that's a shame, really, actually I'm pretty sure there's video on the web of some bizarre Japanese game show that features competitive 'kegel-ing')

3. Kinko's (FedEx Office just doesn't sound nearly as pervy, or pervy child clown-y)

7. Time gaps in the narrative of the story might be another possibility, One Tree Hill just up and skipped college, and Lost of course, Alias did something similar, don't know about the others.

5. Weezer.

(again, only cause I just downloaded the latest Weezer (short review, not terrible, not great) epynomously titled album from Zune and noticed the other two epynomously titled Weezer albums)

#7 -- I checked the Ken Jennings thread at Snopes and Time Gaps appears to be the popular answer.
