I thinks it is funny that people have to visit Barbie Doll sites to answer a question. I hope no man posting from work is seen visiting such a site by his boss or workmates.

It wasn't my idea. I was lamenting that there was only four Teletubbies so it wasn't good to have a question about them when my husband (a 59 year old man) suggested a Barbie question.

Round 15

Name An Osmond Brother

For 10 points:
Thomas, Donny & Alan

For 5 points:
Jimmy (4), Wayne (4)

No one mentioned Virl, Merrill or Jay.

Name A Belt Of The Planet Uranus

Everybody gets ten points, as told, since I had a brain fart and put Uranus in the question instead of Jupiter (which was what I meant to put in the first place )

One Of The Top 10 On AFI's 100 Best Movie Songs

For 10 points:

The Sound Of Music [#10], Stayin' Alive [#9], White Christmas [#5], As Time Goes By [#2], Moon River [#4], When You Wish Upon A Star [#7], The Way We Were [#8]

For 5 points:
Mrs. Robinson [#6]

I couldn't accept one answer. Unchained Melody (from "Ghost") was listed at #27, so not in the Top 10.

A Period From The Paleozoic Era

For 10 points:

Cambrian & Carboniferous

For 5 points:

Silurian (3), Ordovician (3), Devonian (2)

I couldn't find the Mississippian Era anywhere, so that answer got no points. But, if I'm wrong, correct me and I'll adjust scoring .

A Published Work Of Oscar Wilde
Someone snuck in a short story but the question didn't specify that those weren't acceptable...

For 10 points:

Salome, The Picture of Dorian Gray, An Ideal Husband, The Importance of Being Earnest, Lady Windermere's Fan, The Selfish Giant (a short story)

For 5 points:

A Woman Of No Importance (2), The Ballad Of Reading Gaol (2)

I couldn't accept A Woman Of No Substance.

Very good round folks! Very close. Results momentarily...

I'd say being tied for first for the month is doing better than reasonably well, JM! .

ANSWERS TO ROUND 16

We only had 8 entries

Question 1 - Friend or family of Barbie (1959-1970)

Worth 10 points
Midge, Skooter, Todd

Worth 5 points
Ken (2), Skipper (2)

I also had the answer Kelly but can find nodoll released before 1970 of that name. A Kelley was released in 1973-1974, and a Kelly was released in 1995.

Question 2 - Member of the Pre-Raphaekite Brotherhood

Worth 10 points
James Collinson

Worth 5 points
Dante Gabriel Rossetti (2), William Michael Rossetti (2), John Everett Millais (2)

I had one answer that just said 'Dante' which I had to mark as incorrect.

Question 3 - Member of AC/DC

Worth 10 points
Bon Scott, Brian Johnson

Worth 5 points
Angus Young (2), Malcolm Young (2), Phil Rudd (2)

Question 4 - Tom Holt novel

Worth 10 points
Every one scored 10 points. The answers we had were

Odds and Gods
Paint Your Dragon
Faust Among Equals
The Walled Orchard
A Song for Nero
Overtime
Snow White and the Seven Samurai
Who's Afriad of Beowulf

I cannot understand why Tom Holt is not better known than he is. I personally think his stories are similar to and as good as Terry Pratchett's works.

Question 5 - A Francis the Talking Mule movie

Worth 10 points
Francis Covers the Big Town, Francis in the Haunted House, Francis Goes to West Point, Francis

The first movie in the series is generally called 'Francis the Talking Mule' but I have found it listed simply as 'Francis' on some web sites

Worth 5 points Francis in the Navy (2), Francis joins the WACS (2)

Scores

Elfwinkle 50

Eraserhead 40
Santana2002 40
Kevinatilusa 35
BlinkyBill 30
gatsby722 30
spanishliz 30
ozzz2002 25

Update: I have been corrected rightly on Round 15's answers. The Paleozoic Era one. The "Mississippian Era" is correct as it is an Americanized way to say one of the Caboniferous eras. I guess saying Carboniferous was too difficult at some point in history over here so somebody had to come up with alternatives. Had they ever noticed that spelling Mississippian ain't that easy, either , they might have just as well left it alone. But, anyway, Santana2002's score should be 10 points higher. It won't change the results but I wanted to make note of her correct answer.

Hey everyone...I think we should stop telling the "Round-Master" that our PMs are sent...It takes up a lot of space.

Not that you have to listen to me of course.

Cheers,

At the risk of also taking up space, I agree with Theoryman.
