Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--You asked for it

Post by rjaguar3 »

In continuing with the long tradition (I guess only DadofTwins really knows how long it's existed), I'm writing a category titled "You asked for it" with the clues coming from player-suggested categories (often mashups thereof). Last year's category should give you an idea of what it will look like.

Please post your category suggestions in this thread.
