Tweak Of The Week LXXVII: Mergers That Just Won't Yield
(Updated 11 Sep 03)

Last week we asked you to take two or more companies/products/etc., and combine them to come up with a new company name that would be less than marketable. We definitely got some good ones and the choosing was again quite difficult.

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific = Gee, I Can't Believe Your Hair Smells Like Butter (joseph.blevins@verizon.net)

Our runner-up, who wins an origami creation of their choice...

Mother's Cookies and Smucker's Jam = Mother Smuckers (cdmauger@aol.com)

Our winner, who wins the automobile window US flag...

Humana Health Insurance and Americares = HuCares (TerriKlein@aol.com)



The prize this time around is a scünci hair clip. By the way, "scünci", I believe is Norwegian for "Ouch, dammit...how the hell does this thing work??" Hey, we have some of their hair "doodles" (as I call them) here that we can NOT open altho the directions say you can...therefore we know of what we speak. Anyway, this has never been used..it has tho, been "tried"...which means we gave up on it. Perhaps you know someone without bone straight hair that it can function in...but since my daughter's is...and since cut short, we were going to just toss it out, but since I do need prizes...it stayed. It has been washed off, so no "cooties" should be on it - and, like I said, after about 5 minutes we gave up on it and never used it anyway. This prize can be yours if you win this week's Tweak. (Photo to follow shortly.)


Questions...Not Answers III

The Tweak this time is the third offering we've done...okay, we like it...a lot. What you are to do is to play our form of "Jeopardy!"...we supply the answers (below)...you come up with a witty, funny, strange, etc., question for it. Do one or do them all...in other words, feel free to send as many as you want. Still confused...or never watched Jeopardy!...then look below the list for my two examples...which I did to curtail the obvious replies to those (always thinking I am....sorta). Thanks go out to Jankath for coming up with the first seven here. Please remember to include the "answer" with your "question".
