Answer:Meat Loaf &
Ozzy Ozbourne
Meat Loaf and Ozzy Ozbourne both have strange associations with food (one involving a name change, and one involving biting heads off of live poultry). They also both have a history with reality TV shows. Coincidence? I think not…

Brain Celebri-teasers: Solution – Week #20

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Welcome back to Brain Celebri-teasers. It’s time to reveal the solution to our Week #20 puzzle:

Week #20
Category:Movies/TV
Difficulty:Hard
Clue:One of these guys is likely thinking about the other today
Answer:Jim Henson &
Frank Oz
This week’s was tricky, I know, since neither of these men ever appeared in front of the camera, but their work makes them perhaps two of the most famous people in the world. Jim Henson died twenty-one years ago this past Monday (May 16, 1990) at the altogether-too-young age of 53. The mark he made, though, along with his partner Frank’s voice, continue to live on today.

The winner this week was Mike!

After twenty weeks, the standings are as follows:

The End of the World – Again…

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

As some of you may have heard, the rumor is that the world is going to end on May 21, 2011. Well, I have plans next week, so I figure I’d Google it and investigate. Check out the rather alarming (or comforting?) Google autocomplete on the subject:

OK, so here’s where we stand so far: 2011 seems to be maintaining its lead, but 2012 is coming on fast. 2013 seems to be struggling badly, trailing even poor ol’ 2010, who is severely handicapped in the race, given that it exists only in the past. Stay tuned to this station for further polling data as it becomes available…
