Winner: Rosebud, Then TomTwin, Jacqui, Carol St.Martin, and Judge Judy.

13 Rounds! That’s how long the playoff lasted between Rosebud and TomTwin. Finally, Rosebud won the play off that lasted forever. Only she knew what the letters in SPAM stand for. Spiced Ham, of course. Although, during WWII and beyond, the meat colloquially became known in the UK as an acronym that stood for Special Processed American Meat.

Tiffany moderated in her last game before she goes to see the baby doctor. We will miss her, especially her cupcakes.

Good Question!: What distinctive feature does a man cat have?

Choices: a. black tongue   b. no tail   c. no voice box   d. no ears

Answer: no tail

We thought the phrase “man cat” in the question was a bit strange, and understood it to mean male cat. Well it was strange, because it was a typo. It should have been “Manx cat.” Apparently, we don’t have any serious cat people who would’ve caught this error immediately.

The Manx cat is the pride and joy of the Isle of Man, an island in the Irish Sea between Ireland and Great Britain. The cat’s image has been featured on Isle of Man coins and stamps. Although there is no shortage of legends regarding how the tailless breed ended up on the island, it probably resulted from a mutation occurring in the native feline population. The Manx was one of the earliest breeds registered with the Cat Fanciers Association and was among the first cats shown in Great Britain in the late 19th century

Beside the lack of a tail, the Manx is easily identified by the roundness of his head and body. Some unfortunate felines lose their tails to accidents, but the Manx cat is born without that rear appendage. Not all Manx cats lack tails. Some Manx are born with full tails, with others — appropriately called stumpies — only have stumps.

There are two kinds of people in this world – cat people and dog people. Count me among the latter. Do you remember Rin Tin Tin?

Rin Tin Tin was a male German Shepherd rescued from a World War I battlefield by an American soldier, who became an international star in motion pictures.

Here he is in The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin?
