from rich faber--

Congrats on the new website! Looking forward to seeing it. I don't know if I mentioned it, but I just redid my website a few weeks ago too. What a HUGE relief! I can't believe how much of a backlog of unposted work I had that hadn't been seen!

Ok, so I actually know all of your trivia answers, I think for the first time. Here they are:

"five for friday"

1. considered one of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated, what towering figure was commissioned of chicago sculptors and buried in a field in upstate new york?

The Cardiff Giant

2. which friend learned to ride a bike as an adult?


3. the u.s. military's alleged project to turn a battleship invisible was known by what name...?
The Philadelphia Experiment

4. speaking of jokers, in steve miller's the joker, some people call him maurice, 'cause he speaks of what...?
"the pompitous of love," whatever the heck that means...

5. name three actors who have portrayed the joker.

Mark Hamill, Jack Nicholson, and Heath Ledger. Of course, there's also Caesar Romero, whose moustache was REALLY scary! ;-)

Looking forward to the new site.

3. Philadelfia Experiment
4. the properties (or prophesies) of love.
5. Cesar Romero - 60's tv series
Jack Nocholson - "Batman" movie
Heath Ledger - "The Dark Night" movie
BONUS - Mark Hammill (voice) animated series.

As far as the new website is concerned, did I say, "WOOO HOOO !" yet? :o)

Matt Wieringo said...

I love that everybody who guessed number 4 spelled it different each time. We got "pompetous", "pompotous", "pompitous" and "pompatous". "Pomputous", anyone? :)

This CAN'T be a real word!

todd said...

the correct spelling--from the original lyrics and the movie of the same name--is "pompatus"...

what it means is a question for another friday... : )

Unknown said...

Too many have answered already for me to chime in.

My favorite hoax of all time is the Cardiff Giant though, love what they did there.

Mafus, it isn't a word, but it works for the song. Sorta like Susudio by Phil Collins, he just never found a word that worked better than what was made up as a placeholder.

Emilio even beat me to the "bonus" answer of Mark Hamill for the Animated series Joker.

Can't wait for Monday to get a look at the new site though guys, looks like a great year ahead for the 'Haps. Love that you and Craig are gonna be on the cover for issue two, saw it on Craig's blog.

Kewl beans on the revised site! can't wait to see it!

that little gut looks like something from the dark crystal!

as for the five-fer:

i only have for number 5:
Ceasar Romero, Jack Nicholson & my fave Mark Hamill-best.joker.ever!

Heywood Jablomie said...

as an added bonus for number 5:
Kevin Michael Richardson does the Joker on the new batman cartoon. he's done a ton of stuff as well.

renecarol said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the changes to the site.

Cooper said...

Ooo...New site to play with...

I grew up near Cooperstown, so I got to see the answer to #1, the Cardiff Giant, as a young lad. Not sure if he's still there. I think it was the Farmer's Museum or Market or something. Definitely not the Baseball Hall of Fame, though.

Unknown said...

Hooray! Looking forward to the new site in all its perhapanaughty goodness...

Hope you'll provide more backstory on the Cardiff Giant when you post the answers... sounds like an interesting story.

alison said...

Bill Nolan said...

Ooooh... nice!

Cooper said...

It's the new site!
