Lazy Sunday??

First, happy Father’s Day to all the dads, sugar daddies, pimp daddies, who’s your daddies and you’re not my daddies out there.

Second, go wish Sarcastica a happy birthday! She’s a bit down, so getting some blogger love would cheer her up.

Finally, the contest:

This week, I’m changing things up a bit! I’m taking today off, but we’re still having our normal Lazy Sunday contest. Just head on over to my friend Shiny’s blog Shiny’s Takeout (Get it? Say it aloud!) and he has been gracious enough to come up with a prize and 15 references for you to guess. I don’t even know what they are, and I’ll be playing right alongside you!

If you’re looking for the answers and winner from last week, you can find them in an extended entry.

And here are the answers and winners from last week’s contest :

First, see how you did by viewing this Google spreadsheet. Kapgar got the most correct, with 13 right! Nice job!:

Next, here are the questions and answers:

1. Name something a claustrophobic person should not get into.
He shouldn’t get into a job on floor 7 1/2.

2. What one thing does a woman spend the most time on when getting ready?
Having her buttcheeks buffed by a floor polisher.
Fatal Instinct

3. What is a Spanish word that everyone knows the meaning of?
Plethora
The Three Amigos

4. Name something in your bathroom that you leave plugged in all the time.
The clock. After I fell and hit my head trying to hang it, I’m leaving it there. Besides, now I have this crazy idea in my head.
Back to the Future

5. Besides golfers, what is something you see on a golf course?
People with beer helmets.
Happy Gilmore

6. Name a household chore you actually enjoy?
Cleaning is easy when you get pigeons and roaches to help.
Enchanted

7. Name something you walk out on.
A fiancee who won’t let you sit in the window seat.
The Wedding Singer

8. Name a place where you see nervous people.

9. Name something that can be cherry flavored.
A go-go dancer’s leg.
Planet Terror, or Grindhouse

10. Complete this phrase: “I’ll never forget my first _____”.

11. Name another word for “Dad”.

12. Name something a married couple might want to have 2 of.

13. What is the first part of a person’s body to lose the war with gravity?

14. Name something you see in a jail cell.

The Green Mile

15. Name something you find on a kitchen table.
A cornball maker.
Arrested Development

Here’s how I chose the winner:

First, I entered everyone’s answers into a spreadsheet, giving 1 point for each correct answer and 0 points for each wrong answer. The total number of points equaled the person’s “raffle tickets” for the drawing.

Then I created a randomized list using Random.org of every “raffle ticket” – basically each person’s name was repeated as many times as they had right answers. This gave me a random list of 225 entries.

Finally, using Random.org again, I asked it to generate a random integer between 1 and 225. It chose #104.

#104 is my winner.

(drumroll please)

Congratulations to Jared!

    D’oh!!!! Katie’s screaming Dammit right now! Both about not winning, while doing the best, and that there’s no new contest!

    It does help to have Katie here to help. She catches a lot that I miss. Many that I wind up slapping my head for having missed myself. Totally lucky guess on Planet Terror. I’ve never seen it, but the whole leg thing knowing that Rose McGowan had the M203 leg kinda helped. Shit, I can’t type right now. Two bottles of red coursing through my veins right now. The backspace key is my friend.

    I have a confession to make. I’m embarrassed to say it… but…

    I never put it together that when you said Shiny’s takeout it sounded like chinese takeout until I just read that.

    Winter, I’m a veteran quizzer.

    Peggy, how about Cream of Sum Yung Gai?

    Sybil, I was wondering what type of loving you were going to give your Daddy.
