As always, none of my attempts made the list, but, unlike the previous season, this time none of the entries I voted for made the top five. Obviously, my sense of humor is different not only from Thorsten's, but also from the typical LLama's. Of the five top BWAs, I only find Wu Tang Clan funny.

Yup. Not even a remote smirk from me on any of the 5 'winners'. And I had to look up the Lisa one.

Yeah, Wu Tang was the only one of the winners I voted for. But I’ve long since realized that my anglophilic sense of humor doesn’t comport well with the standard American version.

Mrs. Dash was my favorite. At least it made the list.

First published in 1975, the memoir collection by Primo Levi that consists of 21 stories, each named after (and inspired by) a chemical element, is fittingly titled what?

Wait a minute. Isn't that "A Funny Thing Happened On the Way To the Forum"?

Maybe I'm missing the joke.

Edit. Yes, I was (missing the joke). Sorry 'bout that. I call it "Panacea does Broadway" cuz that was my first musical, ,I played Panacea, and of course, the ancient world revolves around me...

Sergeant is the third and final word in the title of a 1958 British film that launched a series that ended with its 31st movie in 1992. What was the name of this franchise, and the first two words in that 1958 film (and every installment thereafter)?

Collingwood, Essendon, Hawthorn, St. Kilda, and Carlton are all professional teams with very long histories in a sport best known internationally by a three-word name. What is that name?

*Not actually submitted; I originally had Australian Rules Football...then changed it to Gaelic Rules Football (which apparently doesn't have 'rules' in the name) thanks to a Deadspin article and the "very long" part of the clue. Apparently 120 years counts as 'very long'

in organized sports, 120 years is very long.

I think it's funny that Amelia Bedelia made it for two different questions. :D

I think this one is my fave:
Q: According to the lyrics of a popular rock song released in 1995, despite all of his rage, Billy Corgan was still just a what?
A: A BILL SITTIN’ HERE ON CAPITOL HILL

Thanks for pointing out Tyler Perry. I voted when the list only went through Day 10, but I updated. I still think "yeeting" is hilarious, but there are stronger choices.

Sweet — I recall one multi-way entry from a few seasons ago, but other than that, thought they were mostly one-offs

Here's hoping we win...it would be my 2nd, and I'd be happy to share the trophy with a friend.

I'm going with Tyler Perry/Unfriend/Emergency Dentists in that order.

I continue to be amazed by how small the intersection is between my sense of humor and Thorsten's. I think I didn't even get more than half of them.

And not for the first time. The only thing I can figure out about Thorsten's sense of humor is that he'll laugh if you give the answer "Amelia Bedelia" to just about any question.

Solid choices. I'm a fan of $0.50 for the rapper because I'm not even sure it was really meant as a joke. Those are the best kind. :D
