MCF's Perilous! IV Questions

Hello, and welcome to the results for the fourth round of MCF's Perilous! As usual, I provided 20 answers for which my readers had to come up with the corresponding questions and post them on their blogs. Scoring was as follows:

1 pt=each question
2 pts=each question that matches MCF's
-1 pt=any sentences not in question form, or forgetting a question mark
15 pts=Bonus for the Best Question

Not to nitpick, but Elaine didn't mail it on her Christmas card ... she mailed a picture of it on her Christmas card.

Also, once again, I have to demand a recount. Otis scored higher than me. That unpossible.

Darrell's absolutely correct. She would only be able to mail two envelopes or at the most three if she was a witch. It was definitely a photo.

Good catch; I've corrected the question's wording.

I doublechecked; the scores are correct. Otis matched more questions than you did for this round. But you do have the highest total. Will it be you or Otis at the finish line in a few weeks? Will someone else sweep in with a bonus for a last minute victory? Right now, anyone could win...(well, except Rey who only played one round, and people who haven't played any rounds yet...but round 6 will be a fresh start for anyone to jump on)

Whenever I start to feel depressed about having no fashion sense whatsoever, I think of the pickle suit and feel much better about myself.

it was not a pickle suit!

after all, there was no tie or jacket...

Uh, I'll be in the GerAnimals section if anybody needs me.

But what really upsets me is that you guys did not recognize my outfit for what it really was: a loving tribute to Larry the Cucumber of VeggieTales fame!

14. Smaller than a nickel, but larger than a dime, and brown.
What kind of spot warrants a trip to the dermatologist?

And I say that I answered 14 correctly whether I get credit for it or not. Get thee to a doctor!

OK Scott, that is close enough I guess; I'll give you the point.

I have it looked at every few years. They always say they could remove it, but as long as it isn't changing it doesn't have to be removed, so I've put off the surgery. It probably would have been easier if my folks had them remove it when I was a kid.

You're a generous man, no matter what Darrell says about you. ;-)
