Answer:Patrick Stewart &
William Shatner
Of course, Patrick Stewart and William Shatner have both “boldly gone” to the “final frontier,” although at this point, with all the TV series and movies, it’s hard to hear “where no one has gone before” and take it too seriously…

Brain Celebri-teasers: Solution – Week #31

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Welcome back to Brain Celebri-teasers. It’s time to reveal the solution to our Week #31 puzzle:

Week #31
Category:Politics
Difficulty:Medium
Clue:These two ladies have relied on their vocal and visual abilities to advance their political careers (sort of…)
Answer:Sarah Palin &
Nancy Pelosi
The most interesting thing I can think of saying about both Sarah Palin and Nancy Pelosi at this point is that they were both much more relevant to our national political discussion when I created this picture than they are now. Is that a good thing? Well, I’m guessing just about everyone thinks it is for one of them, and not the other…

The winner this week was Zack!

After thirty-one weeks, the standings are as follows:
