New BAT Challenge, Plus Results!

In the latest BAT Challenge the mystery celebrity has been identified to my satisfaction. The WHOZAT? was a relatively drawn out affair with some valiant guessing from David and Myra in particular, but in the end it was "Lucky" Luke N. Atmaguchi who won with a swoop!

There are so many ties that it's beginning to look like my father's closet!
16 Debbie (Gold Medal and Attendance Award plus unredeemed Silver Medal and WWI? and Bronze Medal credits, plus February 2008 WWI? credit and a March 2008 redeemable point; includes two bonus points)
16 Gary (Silver Medal plus three unredeemed WWI? and one unredeemed Silver Medal credits)
16 Myra (includes Attendance Award)
10 Scott (Two Gold Medals plus two unredeemed WWI? credits)
6 Deborah (includes bonus point)
6 Ellen (includes bonus point)
3 David (Bronze Medal)
2 Daniela
2 Dolph (Bronze Medal)
1 bellj
1 Luke N. Atmaguchi (also has April 2008 redeemable point)
1 Myron
1 Trapezia
Debbie and Gary and Scott can still send in their own photos.

This week's challenge is one of the most rare at Blog About Town. It's called CHOOSE THE VEEP! It's fairly simple:
1. Name the person who will soon be named as Barack Obama's running mate.
2. Choose the date when the selection will be officially announced (probably via cyberspace).
The top scorer(s) will get a point. Anyone who does better than I do gets a point for that. And here's a tip for you: Hurry!

Anyone can play, leaving guesses in the comments section using a distinct moniker so everyone can tell everyone from everyone else. (Remember: There's only one Luke N. Atmaguchi.) Enjoy!

Woohoo! (Good thing I didn't say "It can't be Jackie Mason . . .")

Now how do I redeem that old point?


P.S. I'll e-mail Carl pre-Milwaukee, have no idea what my chances are.

Just hang in there, Luke. The old point should show up the next time that the WhereWasIOmeter is reset.

In the meantime, where are the guesses for the latest challenge?? Hurry, people!

they used to call me "Little Debbie" (aka "Snacky Chan")

David Marc Fischer said...

Thanks for the pun, Luke. Sweet!

As of this point, players may not pick the same date as the date when they are picking. In other words, if you enter the contest on 8/xx, you may not pick 8/xx as the date that Obama will announce.

Congrats to Deborah--she got a point for guessing Joe Biden and got a point for that, plus another point for doing better than I did!
