TWoNNCotY Competition Questions I

(Click here for explanation of competition.)

For other TWoNNCotY Competition Questions, see the scoreboard at the upper left hand corner of the blog.

RULES (subject to change)
1) The first person to post an answer will receive points associated with the question.
2) Either Mr. Nonny Nu or Nonny Nu will roll a standard Monopoly 6-surface die to determine the points for a question after it has been answered.
3) If by Nonny Nu's misguidance someone is cheated, Mr. Nonny Nu will right things during the appropriate closed-door setting.
4) At least one question and up to three questions will be in play per day.
5) All answers must be found on the blog (either blog entry, photo, or comment) existing on the blog by the date that the question is posted. For example, Elton Brown may or may not be one of 3-fish's idols, but no text existing on the blog by the date that question 3 was posted indicates that this is true.
6) Shy people may request the assistance of others to post an answer, but the answer is considered submitted when it is posted to the blog and NOT when it is provided by the shy person to his/her helper. (This rule is for the benefit of Cl. Panic's FAA, but applies to all other shy persons as well.)
7) Nonny Nu will check this blog entry for answers at the top of each even hour during business hours, and will randomly check outside of business hours.

Helpful Resources
1) Labels listing at the bottom left of the blog.
2) Hints from Nonny Nu or person(s) not permitted to answer the question in play.
3) Score board at top left of the blog.

Against! CaLoc Supported Mr. NonnyNu's stand against lone-NN-hiking.

Cl. Panic said...

I'm hoping for a 20-point roll!

Nonny Nu said...

Correctamundo!

Mr. Nonny Nu, will you do the honors?

Snakeye said...

Nonny Nu said...

Thank you, Mr. Nonny Nu! Wow, I feel like I'm in Vegas!!

btw, I've added a score board on the left frame of the blog (at the top).

stillman said...

is #2 Clive Owen?

Nonny Nu said...

Stillman, sorry, that is incorrect. But, you are thinking of the right post!

stillman said...

colin firth

Cl. Panic said...

Aragorn.

stillman said...

alan rickman. Matthew Macfadyen.

Cl. Panic said...

Mr. NN! He'd look funny clean shaven.

Nonny Nu said...

OOOOhhhhh...Stillman is going to hate you, Cl. Panic, but you are right again. It's Viggo Mortensen who played Aragorn in LotR.

Mr. Nonny Nu, the envelope, please?

stillman said...

crap. I was looking at a different post. what, no assist?

Nonny Nu said...

crap. I was looking at a different post. what, no assist?
Sorry, it was too late by the time I got back! Shoot, I was thinking of another post that you were looking at. But, you are so right about those Englishmen looking hot, especially that Alan Rickman. OMG, have you seen Sense & Sensibility? The way Colonel Brandon looked at Marianne...sigh...

Okay, to aid your quest for the answers, TWoNN citizens, I have provided the labels at the bottom left of the blog!

Nonny Nu said...

P.S. Since I led Stillman astray (by telling her that she was on the right post when I was thinking of another post), I'm going to double the points for the question that she next answers correctly.

Cl. Panic said...

Well, she still has to get one right first >;)

Snakeye said...

The last man to get snarky with Stillman ended up dead. (Just so you know.)

OKAY, PEOPLE, I'm capping this at 3 questions per day. Questions don't grow on trees, you know.

Cl. Panic said...

Elton Brown.

Cl. Panic said...

But, like the rest of the TWoNN community, she's also a fan of Maggi.

Nonny Nu said...

I have added a Rules and a Helpful Resources section to this blog entry.

Cl. Panic, you may find Rule 5 interesting.

Hint: The idol is a person and not a substance.

King Friday XIII said...

"3) Those who receive misguided hints from Nonny Nu will receive bonus points applied to their next correct answer."

i'm calling b.s. on this one. the die alone should decide the scoring fate of successful participants. if by nn's misguidance someone is cheated, mr. nn will customarily right things during the appropriate closed-door setting.

Thank you for volunteering. Less work for me, and that's a good thing for EVERYBODY...I have changed the rule accordingly.

Cl. Panic said...

NOW there's a time limit?

I thought that the world of Nonny Nu started on 3/15/07. So we're actually vying for TWoNNCotNM (Citizen of the Nine Months).

Cl. Panic said...

Rule 8: Rules subject to change.

Cl. Panic said...

because Rule 9: Section headers are non-binding.

Nonny Nu said...

GAH! Okay, being head of state is for the birds. FINE. I changed rule 3 and I'm not adding rules 8 and 9. Rule 3 should be fine now, because it wouldn't be fair if someone supplies info later on to make a certain answer right. The game can only be fair if everyone has the same information. That means that the only information everyone can have must be found on TWoNN already when the answer is posed.

In your dreams. TWoNN started on Apr. 15, tax day, Mr. TurboTax. Someone get this guy some deductions...from his existing points.

Snakeye said...

"Someone get this guy some deductions...from his existing points."

snakeye don't play dat game.

stillman said...

martha stewart?

Cl. Panic said...

That means that the only information everyone can have must be found on TWoNN already when the answer is posed.

Which means that Elton Brown is right.

Roll the die, Mr. NN!

Nonny Nu said...

Look, I know what you're getting at, but using someone's recipe doesn't mean you idolize them. There is no need for Snakeye to roll anything (except his eyes) until the CORRECT answer is supplied.

Here's a hint: The idol I'm thinking of is deceased.

Cl. Panic said...

Hint: The idol is a person and not a substance.

Wait, the Sauce isn't named after its inventor. That's sad!

Cl. Panic said...

Princess Diana.

Cl. Panic said...

Final Answer.

Mr. Nonny Nu said...

"the Sauce isn't named after its inventor"

oh, like their restaurants make sense?

happy finger joy

3-6-9

rooster noodle love

silver number hungry

fishy yum yum

stillman said...

Elvis. Marilyn Monroe.

Man from U.N.C.L.E. said...

Coco

Nonny Nu said...

Princess Di is correct.

Unfortunately, Coco was far from being idolized by 3-fish.

Snakeye said...

Nonny Nu said...

Mr. Nonny Nu: Chinese restaurant names make sense to Chinese people (except that 3-6-9 one).

Stillman: Random guesses will get you nowhere!

Mr. Nonny Nu said...

"Chinese restaurant names make sense to Chinese people"

hello! courtesy to speak english? to whom are you serving those chicken fingers? i mean, when americans order chicken fingers, it's not to be taken literally!

happy finger joy--rooster noodle love--fishy yum yum? hey, if you say so. but i can't help wondering what they're really trying to tell me: beef noodles with happy ending, what?

3-6-9 well, monkeypig is gonna have to explain that one. damn it if they didn't have great noodles.

Nonny Nu said...

And, the potstickers and dumplings!

stillman said...

this game sux. you and cl. panic should just go play by yourselves in a conference room.

Nonny Nu said...

Turn that frown upside down! Tomorrow is another day, Scarlett!

stillman said...

Pthhh.

Nonny Nu said...

That's the spirit, Stillman!!

Besides, I don't go anywhere without my trusty Mr. Nonny Nu by my rabbit side. Nobody rolls better than he does. *nods*
