- everyone can play
- i'll give you the clues, and you must guess the category
- i'll give a new clue every 15 minutes until the correct answer is given
- for no apparent reason, you must respond in the form of a question
- unlike other mcm games, this one has a cash prize! (*)

If you would like to give clues, please do. I can PM a category to you, or you can choose your own category.

Good luck!

(* all cash prizes are payable in Sky Bucks.)

That's right, Nichols. There's an account in your name at Funk and Wagnalls' Bank with a balance of 5 cents. Let's see if we can add to that.

I suppose FG's response has a point, but it wouldn't have counted anyway because for no apparent reason all responses must be in the form of a question.

Here's the last category in Row 1.

Game 1.

Row 1.

Clue 1 (5:08p): Hookers.
Clue 2 (5:23p): The Roosevelt Hotel
(the host is out)
Clue 3 (6:35p): The Chinese Theater
Clue 4 (6:48p): Hookers.

Yes Alex - or is it Dick (since this is Pyramid). I learned how to make modern houses with folded paper.

I think the answer to this one is: What are Kansas City Lotta Livin members (i.e. Moderns from MO)

Who are characters from It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World.

I think that's the right number of "Mads." I saw that movie when I was a real little kid and I watched the whole thing with my hands over my eyes. It scared the crap out of me. That was a big source of teasing from my family for years to come.

You caught me mid-post, Amy.

Looks like you're the big winner tonight with a grand total of fifty cents, followed by Nichols with five cents. I'm going to carry your winnings over until next week, if you don't mind, because I have two more rounds of "The MCM 60 cent Pyramid"￾ prepared. That's it for tonight, though.

You were right about the number of Mad'￾s. It's a difficult movie for a young kid - I was pretty youg the first time I saw it too. I probably didn't understand most of the jokes, or appreciate all the stars, until years later. But I'm sure that I giggled over all the physical comedy. It's also very long. But the thing I remember about it most was that it had an intermission, and I always thought that movies with an intermission were somehow special when I was a kid.

Good night, Amy. Thanks for playing.
