Here it is – the final round. And once you finish these questions, you get to toss on your costume and head out into the night in search of purloined Pixie Sticks or whatever your confectionary poison might be (Circus Peanuts? – SHUDDER!!!)

Contestants have until 8:00 a.m. Wednesday October 28th to send me their answers. The answers should be sent via e-mail to

As always, there is no cheating. You are on your honor – meaning you cannot hit up your wicked smart spouse or peruse the Internet in hopes of finding the solution to that which haunts you. Answer these off the top of your head and then send me your submission. After all, this is all in fun. No prize to be had aside from bragging rights.

To that end, I’ll post the results and updated leaderboard each Thursday.
