  1. These are great! Apparently, we were mostly on hive-mind about Georgie Porgie. I think only one person didn’t say something about “bad breath” or “halatosis”.

    • Thanks, Frank! It’s so fun to think up silly answers each week. You’re right about poor Georgie and his bad breath – we all agree – get some mothwash! haha
      It’s funny how we lots of time have such similar answers. I never read others until I’ve done mine, either. 🙂

  2. Ha! I think some people actually think there’s a prize to be had for taking the last napkin from the dispenser at a restaurant with how many they grab. I watched a lady completely clean out a full napkin dispenser right in front of the manager before… just daring him to try and stop her from taking them all home with her!
