If you click on the link now, you should see that Julie B got one right:

http://lrd.bigdogwebpages.com/qcheck.php?quizno=1

Please note:
    answers are not case sensitive
    there are no commas in the answers
    there are a few apostrophe’s in contractions – and I’m giving you both the apostrophe and both sides of the contraction (for example it’s is i’s)
    there is one hyphenated word, and I treated that like a contraction – the first letter dash first letter of the second word
    when an answer has a number in it, I gave you the whole number.
I won’t know if this is too hard until you try t a bit, but if it is too hard, maybe I can give you the topic for each.

Good Luck.

And now it is so. GG.

Futura Girl wrote:t'sarfj that's a real fine java :-P

No, but my source tells me that it's a slogan originating in 1964.

Futura Girl wrote:llsc lotta living social club?

No, but I didn't expect anyone to get it without a hint. (Hint: It's a spy guy.)

Futura Girl wrote:"wtp"

what's the point

where's the peppermints
what type people
white toilet paper!

And now I really have to go walk the pup. GNN.

I'm very surprised that you guys got so many right considering there was no one topic.

And although you probably don't need it, here are topical clues to the remaining answers:

tess, television
rms, architecture
nkc, music
t’sarfj, advertising
tssn, architecture
tuncle, television
sefc-itrae, movies
llsc, television

BOLO for more games using the auto-check system. It's not all that sophisticated - you could cheat and edit your responses, for example - but the honor system is okay with me and it will make it a whole lot easier for future games. (I just tested a name that tune in the test forum, but they are songs I've used before and probably way too easy for you guys.)

I think Futura Girl was closer, but you both might be over thinking it. Use your intuition and you will get your just desserts.

What is, "There's always room for Jello?"

But my favorite Jell-o slogan is, "If all the world were Jell-O/ and whipped cream filled the sea, then the only spoon from here to the moon would have to belong to me."
