My Fridays buddy [Engadine] is not feeling a bit good right now and asked me to post Round 4 in her abscence. Let's, as a group, send her collective positive energy. I'm early again but here is:

Round 4

1. Tony Randall played, naturally, 7 characters in 1964's "The Seven Faces Of Doctor Lao". Name one of them.

2. Give an FT Forums member whose screen name has a number in it.

3. A newspaper specific to Montreal that is published in French.

4. Name a book of poetry released by Pulitzer Prize winning poet Stephen Dunn. (Make sure it's poetry and the right Stephen Dunn ).

5. Name a cheese that is considered completely vegetarian, for all types of that lifestyle, that begins with the letter 'S'.

Results on Sunday! Enjoy, everyone.

OK. Yikes almighty! Round 4 is done. Closed. All answers tallied up. This might take a while. I have to decide how technical to be (would goat cheese be considered vegetarian? A vegan would surely say "not". But I think I'll accept it. As we proceed....)

Round 4

One Of The Characters Portrayed By Tony Randall In "The Seven Faces Of Doctor Lao"

For 10 points - The Abominable Snowman, Audience member, Merlin, Apollonius Of Tyana

For 5 points - Medusa(3), Pan(3), Loch Ness Monster(2), Giant Serpent(2), Dr. Lao(2)

That named them all!

A Forums Member With A Number In Their Screen Name

For 10 points - 12791_kr, fosse4, Linda1, gtho4, mjohn620, beaker411, THartmann93, Santana2002, doc322, Gatsby722, Ren33, ladymacb29.

For 5 points - ozzz2002(2)

One notable omission on the answers given: Sue943. But we'll chalk that up to the likelihood that everyone would pick her and wouldn't get that 10 pointer .

Montreal Newspapers Published In French

I ran into this one little problem in researching these. Just a little one - I don't speak a word of French and most of the sites were written in that...

For 5 points - Le Devoir(8), Le Journal de Montreal(2), La Presse(2)

I disallowed two, with many a wobble. TV Hebdo looks like a magazine more than a newspaper. I couldn't find Ici at all. Considering the calibre of those who offered those two answers I am sure I'm wrong. Correct me if I'm mistaken. Correcting me will noticeably change the winner's list.

A Collection Of Poetry By Stephen Dunn

For ten points - Loosestrife

For five points - Landscape At The End Of The Century(4), Local Visitations(3), Between Angels(3), Different Hours(3).

Vegetarian Cheese Starting With 'S'

The phrasing left a rather broad scope of answers. Not being a snippy or picky sort I accepted them all.

For 10 points - Somerset Camambert, Silken Tofu, Stella Swiss, Sargento Swiss, just Swiss (I accepted all of those because no one doubled up on what they said), Scarmorze, Saladena Feta.

For 5 points - Soya(5) [no one put brand names there so all the soy cheeses were grouped together], String Cheese(2).

14 players this time! Close scores, too. Here is the winner's list.

ElfTwinkle - 45 points

littlewoman2, Kuu, beaker411, cinnamOn, Santana2002, gtho4, SRSTrekker - all 35 points

Exit10, Julia103, spanishliz, mjohn620, achenar, ozzz2002 - all 30 points

Edited to correct my usual typos
Scores adjusted due to error
