I don't know why I thought that Chevy Chase would be popular...I was deciding between that and Jasper Johns.

off to an amazing start with two wrong answers...
But you're having fun, right? :)

Still time - anything can happen - and probably will!
Of course! I knew this one would be a struggle, I didn't really have answers to 3 or 4 questions. Should've known Johns would be a big sheep. Figured Betty Boop and Olive Oyl would be at least close.

Rats on toast! or the Mac OS question, I was all ready to say "sierra," then I had doubts. So I went with a wrong answer instead. Typical.
Teems with quiet fun.

Me too! :D Very occasionally it works, but sometimes I end up feeling like Vizzini must have felt a split second before he keeled over.

I couldn't think of where the movie Glengarry Glen Ross was set but remembered the setting of the play. I correctly suspected The Music Man would sheep. I think a lot of people expected Barefoot in the Park to sheep or be close.
My philosophy: We watch for the game. Players who get in the way of the game intrude, whether they're arrogant or adlib or cackle or fidget or make noise or are rude to AT. We want those who just play the game and don't make it about themselves to win.

I'm not surprised The Music Man sheeped. I went for it because I like that musical and I was living in fantasyland thinking some that went for it might err and say (thinking of Gary) Indiana.

I forgot to enter, but on #5, I would have gone with Boron since Babe was also in the picture with Paul Bunyan. Would that have been accepted?

Thanks, I'll check it out. I made my own grading tool for #361, so I can probably just make a few small changes to that, but this might be easier.
