    Okay, this is how this is going to work. I'm going to post something I'd like to see and then using whatever resources are available to you (ie the internet), you'll look this item up and post it here. The first one to post the requested item will be the recipient of the points up for grabs. Points up for grabs will depend on the item to be found and the difficulty of finding it. Game not valid in some states. Void where prohibited. Many will enter, few will win.

    This will not be easy, and it's not for the timid. If you don't have the proper attire for standing the heat in the kitchen, then move to Alaska.

    Alright, here's the first item to find, for 45 points:

    Find a picture of the Dozers from Fraggle Rock

    Wow, you guys are quick ;)

    Sorry Jenny, William gets the points though, as he responded first.

    William - 45

    Okay, this next one is going to be tough, and it's worth 87 points!

    Find the name of the song sung by Davy Jones in the Scooby Doo episode where the gang is being chased by a giant frog. Hints: it was from "The New Scooby Doo Movies" and the lyrics began with "I know, a place where I am going..."

    Now, I know the name of the song, but you can get a bonus 150 points if you find all the lyrics to this song. I couldn't find them myself.

    For another 33 points each (a total of 66):

    Find a picture of an "effiminate" man dressed as a pirate, and a picture of a little girl being punched. A particular JC user has used both these images several times.

    I couldn't find them either, Jenny. :( I love that song too. "And I love you, you know I do, and if I make you happy could you love me too?"

    There are still other points up for grabs:

    For another 33 points each (a total of 66):

    Find a picture of an "effiminate" man dressed as a pirate, and a picture of a little girl being punched. A particular JC user has used both these images several times.

    And for 24 points:

    Find a picture of George Michael, from the "Wake Me Up Before You Go-go" video, in his white "Choose Life" shirt.

    Yes! A wise man said that gay pirates were the spice of life. I don't know if I fully agree, but there's almost nothing funnier.

    Points:

    William - 132
    Kas - 66

    I'll post more stuff to find later, my friends.

    I have the lyrics on my computer somewhere, so I'll know if you've got the right ones. And they're out there, trust me ;)

    We're looking for treasure and along the way, we're growing, as people.

    Well, I'm still looking for those lyrics, but in the meantime, you can entertain yourself by learning the Ewok language:

    [link=http://www.geocities.com/wermosguidetohuttese/Ewok.html]The Complete Wermo's Guide to Ewok[/link]

    "Chi ita lungee."

    Okay, new easy stuff to find:

    Find pictures of cartoon characters that wear glasses (7 points each)

    Find a picture of Steve Urkel (5 points)

    Find a picture of a robot wearing glasses (17 points each)

    Note: you can post as many as you want for the cartoons and robots, but if someone has posted the same image or character previously, no points are awarded.

    Now that I look again, I can only find the Ewok lyrics on one page on the internet. "We are the E-E-E-E-E-Ewoks"
