I think after awhile, you stop hoping to win and start wishing SOMEONE would win the damned thing because you just can't stand to see the same picture there for hours on end!

Bev, Quinn got it right. He's a world champion competitive eater.

OMG.

"...He underwent an upper gastrointestinal series and was shown to have a stomach that expands four times larger than a normal stomach. His digestive rate of the stomach was also slower than a normal human."

But he's still at a decent size.


I hate men.

Actually Sperg guessed it correctly earlier on but listed him as Timothy. Only a handful of websites referred to him as Timothy so I only listed Tim - go figure. Sperg was also given the points for solving the puzzle correctly.

Actually Fookie guessed it first, then Sperg, then Flyfod.

Thanks for catching that - Fookie gets the points then.

Now that the Incredible Mr. Yellow has been unmasked, could someone with insight please explain why the picture was cropped as it was? Even if most of us had seen his face (which, I believe should be part of the fun of identifying a person's picture) we likely wouldn't have known him.

I enjoy the puzzles, please don't take this for idle grumbling. But they REALLY need the person's face in them.


Thanks!

Because this particular competitive eater wears disticntive make-up when competing, I thought he would be more recognizable than he apparently was. That's why the photo was cropped so severely.

Four separate people actually guessed that?

Glad there was a solid reason...but I'm confused. If distinctive makeup is a giveaway, wouldn't a distinctive nose (i.e. Jimmy Durante) or big ears, etc. be a giveaway as well? If we're planning on avoiding people who can be identified by how they look, I fear we'll run out of decent choices before too long.

I think the goal would have been to reward the few folks who could identify quickly, rather than frustrate the many who had no idea who the heck he was or what makeup he wore.

Just a view from the frustrated gallery.....

I saw his picture in the "Parade" magazine today.

You'd think I would have also guessed his name as "Tim", since that's my name as well!

Revdodd, We aren't trying to avoid people with distinctive features, just trying to make them challenging enough to be fun, but not so easy that they are solved immediately as a tile is removed. Someone less well-known needs less cropping, someone more well-known may need some creative cropping. There have been very few that have gone to 12 tiles being removed so I don't think we're doing too bad. It's also difficult sometimes to guage how well-known someone is to the general public. We all have different hobbies, interests, occupations. What's well-known to one may not be well-known to another.

The Captain Beefheart dude was probably the most difficult I've seen...hey, I've got a picture of the naked guy from my Kaelin's Birthday quiz! Do that one so I can get it -- you could definitely get into some creative cropping there (laughing like a maniac)
