    Question #1:

    Who was voted the first Canadian woman member of Parliament?

    You have 48 hours from the time this question is posted to PM me the answer. Good luck everybody!!!! :)

    EDIT: I will also allow anyone else who wants to join up in the game the opportunity to answer this question, but you still only have 48 hours from when this one is posted (or until everybody has answered me) to give me an answer. Once the answer to the first question is posted by me, I can't accept any more new entries.

    Whoops! Don't want to be posting my answer here by accident, now do I? [face_blush]

    So, Indy, if we all get that one right, do we all get to vote someone off the island? :D

    Shadey actually answered with Agnes Campbell, which, while technically wrong, I will let slide this time. But from now on in, I am going to be more strict... ;)


    Question 2:

    What movie did the 80's rock group Duran Duran get their name from, and what was the full name of the character they are named after?

    Oh poop, someone posted their answer in the thread again, and again I missed it :(. And I think I sent my answer in at almost exactly the same time too. Oh well, I think I've got this one nailed anyway; interesting question though. ;)

    Maybe we should think up a "game within the game" to play while we're waiting. :p

    I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 3...

    Those who are eliminated from the game should now voluntarily ban themselves for 24 hours -or- write a poem in this thread (4 lines minimum) about how sorry they are they got terminated. ;)

    Better luck next game!!!

    "Sorry!" is a game where little plastic men
    Run around a board by white dice driven
    "Sorry..." is a word often over-used
    By cheating spouses to those they abuse

    To apologise for forgetting to play a game
    (Busy complimenting a proto-banner)
    Seems to me to be pretty lame
    (Like this poem: mods would say "Ban 'er!")

    Though all poetry is bad, (as Alakin well knows)
    This apology poem is worse than most I suppose,
    No proper metre, drivelling rhymes, and a scansion somewhat blurry
    Still it's the best I can do to post and say I'm sorry

    For not sending in the real correct answer I went to six sites, and even read the script of the movie to find,
    (It's "Doctor Durand Durand Jr", in point of fact if you're inclined)
    And while I'm kicking myself for not sending the PM that I drafted
    I need to post today and tomorrow, so this poem I have crafted.

    ROFLMAO!!!! That is GOLD!!! :D I am actually considering letting you back in the game for such an effort!!!!!!

    Okay, not really. But... I release you from your ban!!! ;)

    And by 4 lines, I meant only 4 lines, not 4 stanzas... although if it is an effort such as that, I am glad!!! :D

    Thank you, thank you. bows to nonexistent applause and finger snapping

    That was an extempore composition by request. For my next piece, I will castigate Indy in public. Mmmm... public castigation!

    Silly man, you specifically said, "minimum" four lines. That's what you got. Just because I can't shut up once I get going...
