Brain Celebri-teasers: Solution – Week #29

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Welcome back to Brain Celebri-teasers. It’s time to reveal the solution to our Week #29 puzzle:

Week #29
Category:Music
Difficulty:Medium
Clue:These young ladies are proof that young ladies can be very successful at . . . well, at entertaining young ladies
Answer:Brittney Spears &
Miley Cyrus
Brittney and Miley certainly seemed to be moving down parallel paths earlier in life, although Miley appears to have clung to the “straight and narrow” a little more successfully than Brittney. Who knows – I hear Brittney is making a comback of sorts now, producing even more music that I stand absolutely no chance of enjoying (or even, quite possibly, hearing). Let’s hear it for the non-target market crowd!

The winner this week was Ilya!

After twenty-nine weeks, the standings are as follows:

Brain Celebri-teasers: Solution – Week #27

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Welcome back to Brain Celebri-teasers. It’s time to reveal the solution to our Week #27 puzzle:

Week #27
Category:Politics
Difficulty:Hard
Clue:America is 235 years old today, and these two guys know a little something about that
Answer:Robert Byrd &
Strom Thurmond
Just before Strom Thurmond and Robert Byrd died, they each held the title of oldest and long serving senator. Not that they actually remember as far back as 1776. But they were the last two senators that remember life before the light bulb…

The winner this week was Nobody! After twenty-seven weeks, we have our first stumper! Partial credit (but no points) to Mike, who correctly identified one of these two elder statesmen, but not both…

After twenty-seven weeks, the standings are (still) as follows:
