    Just happened to see your GLEN BECK FOR PRESIDENT...I love him too! He's not only smart, but really funny. Love the idiot game he plays on his radio show on Fridays where he calls random convience stores and asks the most obvious questions and gets some of the dumest answers!!

    Glenn Beck is a hoot and makes more sense than most.
    I've wished for a modern day Teddy Roosevelt to emerge; Glenn will do.

    On a side note, you would be surprised at some of the messages I got about that in my signature. Lets just say Mr. Beck isn't beloved by all here in the warm and fuzzy BYC world.

    1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends. Fishing??? I'm not a sports person...LOL

    2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward? I have no idea.. does this have something to do with it being placed backwards against the rotation of the Earth?? My geography is HORRIBLE!! LOL

    3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables? Onion and Garlic???or maybe potatoes?

    4. What fruit has its seeds on the outside? Strawberry

    5. In many liquor stores you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle? I've NEVER seen one of these... is it dehydrated and then placed in the bottle?

    6. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters 'dw' and they are all common words. Name two of them. Dwindle,... I dunno... Dwindling and Dwindled? LMAO

    8. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh. This has me stumped.... I wanted to say Bananas.... but they are dried, and Grapes... but they are canned in cocktails. LETTUCE???? maybe??

    I also LOVE Glenn Beck. When I worked as a surgical nurse, the one surgeon listened to his program during routine surgeries, and I loved the Friday Jeopretardy!! LMAO. He got me hooked, and now that he's on TV, his show is one of the few I set the TiVo for.

    Thanks for the quiz. I got numbers 1, 2, 6, 7, and 8 correct. [​IMG] I feel so intelligent, LOL.
