With a drop used, it's nice to know where I'll be sitting (most likely) for this quiz. Should've known better with the Trolley Song and I switched Andersonville to Gulag before submitting. Grrrrrrrr....

Looking forward to the rest of the reveal!
i almost attempted to go with the trolley song...had just learned of it recently when i watched a bbc show about judy garland...couldn't remember the exact name of the song, so i passed on it

Thanks for the ASL! It gives us bottom dwellers something to aspire to! I'm at 2/3 sheep, shooting for that 50/50 line!
get it done, dude
This ASL is actually inspired by the Mendoza Line. You are a baseball junkie who knows what that is. Not Nurse Nancy cool, but cool. And Peachbox probably heard about it from the stone age. I remember seeing the weekly BA stats and Joe Garagiola (eta - maybe it was Uecker?) was always right there at .200.
Or maybe Peachbox is the baseball junkie. ;)

Oh, I knew that! That's why I brought it up ;) . But I time warped my childhood into the '40's with that Joe G comment. I thought Mendoza dated from the late 60's when I was reading Dal Maxville and Bob Uecker's stats at the bottom of the hitting list, but the expression came up in the '70's. I remember Yaz hitting .301 as the only AL player out of the 2's in 1968 - the Year of the Pitcher! I probably put his rookie baseball card in my bike wheel, lol..
Thanks for the TD - I thought you wouldn't mind a little off-topic post :).

Semisoft Danish cheese + “Verry interesting” actor from Laugh-In -- HavArtie Johnson
Southeast Asian item of clothing + Italian cheese that looks like cottage cheese -- SaRicotta
Pale yellow, nutty flavored cheese + capital of Armenia -- GruYerevan
Taking a risk on a tree branch? + really smelly cheese -- Going out on a Limburger cheese

A clutch singleton with Secretariat kept me at 20 pts, exactly 50%! I usually have a wrong answer someplace, so this was a very user friendly game, and I didn't have to use a drop or sheep (I grow my own sheep).

Thanks, Peachbox for the participation prizes!

I'm more disturbed by the switch in nomenclature order for the onion one.
