On question one, are "novelty" and "fad" nouns, or adjectives referring to "dance"? I assume the latter given the question title?

Adjectives. I reworded the question to make a distinction between novelty (unique, humorous) and fad (dance craze popular for a short time)

Well, I totally blew one both by spelling and something else. It wasn't on the question where spelling was the entirety of the score, but it's still embarrassing.

What’s embarrassing is that you didn’t submit via Google Survey so your entry doesn’t count!

Other things that make it harder for your smith to grade this TD:
-using extraneous characters: SHEEP!, *DROP*, Is it Scott Pruitt’s wife!?!?!?!?
-giving a full name when I specified LAST NAME ONLY

Attention must be paid! :twisted:

Oh. I added a comment section at the bottom of the form for kudos and expletives

Regarding Question #11, is this the geographic center of the contiguous United States or all 50?

One of the reasons I dropped that question is because of the ambiguity about which geographic center he's asking for.
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 know the theme is morbeedo’s revenge, but I wouldn’t expect anyone to know the geographic center of the 50 United States. I’m probably underestimating this group but I’m not that sadistic - the evil spelling bee is as twisted as it gets. In any event, my playtesters have all been fired!

Any of you who have already submitted can PM me if you’d like to amend your submission #creamoftartar

BUMP

I've tried to update the participant list for the 3rd time. Maybe this one'll be the charm

18 entrants so far. ONLY 18?! Put down your hot dogs and submit already! Don't be put off by the theme :twisted:

I'm reaching out to some of you who SHEEPed every other question, left No Penalty Bonus questions blank, need a BMS, etc.

If you would like to thank me for hosting again, you might take inspiration from Scott Pruitt's resignation letter. Or just scream at me. Any and all comments appreciated

Hmm.... soliciting "unrelenting attacks on you personally, your family." Very brave, but I suppose we could try to accommodate.

Um, before we get started, has your father perchance ever smelt of elderberries? Knowing that could be helpful what direction to take.
