Anyway, I mingled a bit, avoided Science Pictionary & stepped up to the plate for Password. As usual, I kicked some butt. The best one was:
thelastmehina's answer (perhaps predictably): Handcuffs
1 4M T3H W1NN3R!
Paula gave a great clue, indicating that it was the chains' sound. And knowing that Pat had included plenty of video game references, and knowing (without ever having played it) that Ratchet & Clank was designed by an Enigman, the answer was obvious!
Then there was some 20K Pyramid: "Pukemon! Jigglycrap!" "Uh, Worst new Pokemon characters" Ding!
After the games, I chatted with a few folks. The most horrifying/interesting thing was when Lauraliz was showing around some 'evaluations' that her 4th graders had written of her at the alternative school where she teaches. 'Alternative school', in her case, means no curriculum and no discipline. I kid you not, these things said stuff like, "She blabs on and on for hours and I bet she sucks dick and sucks pussy and I don't know how she got to be a techer [sic] because shes [sic] so fucking stupid."
Wow. I'm reconsidering my position on post-natal abortion.
