Pepperdoc, thank you for some quite different answers to our 10 favorite questions. (If one more lady Sploofuser remembers the time she tucked her skirt in her ear, I am going to scream)

So it was big fun and challenging. I always look at a player profile before I begin one of these, but the profile is rather barren.

And we'll be asking you about a few of these tomorrow.

Very fun -- imaginative and unusual.
Like Judge Frankfurter (was it?) I dont know what constitutes a good WP, but I know it when I see it.

I, too, will be interested in "the rest of the story" connected with your first job. Good puzzle.

Coll, ..."tucked her skirt in her ear"? Really? How many woman have said that? Who? Where? How come I always miss this stuff? I personally have NEVER stuck my skirt in my ear. Everyone knows that you shouldn't put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear.... Or is it anything larger ? Speak up! I really want to "hear" (nyuk, nyuk) about this.... Ladies???????

Oh man, I need a nap.......

I, too, want to hear the "rest of the story" about that job. I certainly agree with that fear!! Very enjoyable and fun to learn more about fellow Sploofusers

Just a figure of speech, Hedy. There have been a number of 10 Things WPs with ladies skirts tucked upstairs somewhere.

I really didn't believe Pepper's "fear" and took another letter to confirm it. Ya know, getting those pink screens in the AM can really be depressing.

For those curious about #10...

One of my first assignments as a reporter was to go to a farm and shoot a photo and do a story about a cow who had walked up the stairs of an abandoned house and the owner couldn't get him down. I got this great shot of the cow with his head sticking out of the second story window.

Using hay as bait didn't budge him, but an electric cattle prod did, and finally he came down and walked out the door.
As I was walking back to my car (a light yellow Volkswagen Beetle), I saw that the small herd of cattle had surrounded it. I don't know if they thought I was the person bringing the daily hay or what...or maybe they thought the Bug was edible. Don't know, but I pushed my way through, jumped in the Bug and made it back to the office by deadline.

And that, as the late Paul Harvey would say, is the rest of the story.

(P.S. to Coll: Never got my skirt caught in my ear. Now, elbow...that's another story.)

good puzzle; and by the way it was I not some interloper who got the honored 11th place...and incidentally 6th is a great deal worse than 11th...think about it.

Chevy Chase got thrown out of college for leading a cow up to the 2nd floor of his dorm. The cow did not know how to climb down.

Now why are you afraid of Paris Hilton becoming a news anchor?

It was Justice Potter Stewart in his concurring opinion in the 1964 case of Jacobellis v Ohio, stating that hard-core pornography was difficult to define bu "I know it when I see it."

I'm taking a digital media class, studying the history of news in the U.S. from the Penny Press in the 19th Century to blogging, online, RSS feeds...of today.

Not only are print newspapers cutting news space and in jeopardy of going out of business, but television news is competing with news on the internet and they are trying a variety of things to attract and keep viewers (the news audience is growing older and many young people aren't following the news at all.) (Yes, I know newspapers and TV have online websites and that's helping but there's not a strong business model for them to make money that way. Advertising doesn't pull in much, and they don't have paying subscriptions.) Fluff and entertainment news has a strong following...and, hence, my fear although somewhat joking, that Paris Hilton (being a symbol of this) would become a news anchor.

Right now I'm envisioning Paris explaining how the economic crisis is hurting business on Rodeo Drive, while she's holding a chihuahua.

Dude. I can't believe that you had to have that explained.

Certainly something we all should fear.
