Good morning flower.

What happens if two people use the same snake - one posts Snakemaster Sypher Sypher as their entry, then someone posts Cuddly Top DJ which everyone will know is the same snake but its 'common name' instead of the scientific name. Is the second one invalid?

Congratulations, Pinhead! Way to go!
Ignore what Sypher said, you are a BIG GUN, and not a little squirt

gtho4--how can you do this to me???? I had been looking forward to being able to sidle up to you for a quick dance between time slots . I will miss you--and my dance card will remain empty. Perhaps a future game will be in the cards for us...I shall dream...Will you be playing on Monday or Tuesday?

Sypher--does this game run for one week or two?

I will leave that up to the players....

So, The question is....Should the 50th game last for one week or two ?

Please tell me what you think and by the end of Tuesday a decision will be made.
A default score will be given on a daily basis.

Since so many of us have returned to our "Snake Shrine" for this very important game, I thought some of you might be interested in a little info on Snake Worship:


The snake has been variously adored as a regenerative power, as a god of evil, as a god of good, as Christ (by the Gnostics), as a phallic deity, as a solar deity, and as a god of death. It has also served as the symbol of Satan and many deities, including Apollo and the Egyptian god Ra. Snake worship found expression in both the Toltec and Aztec periods of prehistoric Mexican civilization. In Aztec mythology a half-divine, half-human being descended to earth for a while as the great teacher of mankind; the Aztecs called him the "feathered serpent," the incarnation of the serpent sun. In Egypt, according to one authority, each temple had a reserved area where snakes were kept. In Greek religion the snake was frequently considered divine. Among the Greek Dionysian cults it signified wisdom and was a symbol of fertility. The Greek god most closely associated with snake worship is Apollo; the original name of Apollo's temple at Delphi was Pytho, after the snake Python. In Rome during the period of the empire, a sacred snake was kept within the city and was attended by the vestal virgins; it was believed that if the snake refused to accept food from the hand of one of its attendants, the attendant was no longer a virgin, and she was promptly killed. The ancient Mesopotamians and Semites believed that the snake was immortal because it shed its skin and appeared in a fresh guise. The Indians, Burmese, and Siamese worshiped the snake as a demon who also had good aspects. Primitive Hindu snake cults were incorporated into the worship of Krishna and eventually into the worship of Vishnu. Buddhist legends relate that Buddha was given the true Buddhism by the "king of the serpents" (often seen as the cobra), and Buddhists also revere the regenerative powers the snake exhibits. In China the serpent, in the form of the dragon, figures as a fierce but protective divinity. Snake charming, not to be confused with snake worship, is the art of fascinating, capturing, and controlling serpents.

The above is fom the Columbia Encyclopedia.

Sorry dearest Sage... I waited for you until quarter to.
Sorry dearest Sypher...I messed up the bold type for my entry.I also assumed that George's entry should be followed by an 'e 'entry, are we allowing the word 'snake '??? (If so I hope there are lots of 'e ' snakes.....)

We have enough Youth, how about a fountain of Smart?

Oops...there was one rule I forgot to mention....That is No Entry can end in -Snake.

My mistake as I forgot to say, but so I can nip it in the bud, right here, right now. Gtho4's entry will be decreased by 5 points due to the word Snake.

Any other entries will become INVALID if posted with the word Snake.

Sorry

Little bit of trivia...Did you know Harrison Ford isn't scared of Snakes. Not like his character Indiana Jones. Also, Indy liked spiders but Harrison Ford hates spiders....

Sypher--since gtho4 isn't playing for the rest of the week, I would like the 8:30-9:00 am time slot, if that is okay.

gtho4--The lobster sounds wonderful--That makes up for the lost dance
