Unfortunately I thought of that after it was mentioned as the Sheepiest answer. Gah...

36 and the same. I couldn't think of anything by Backstreet Boys or N Sync, I had pretty much stopped listening to pop music by the time they came around.

Oh I never listened to it back then either - I'm a metal dude LOL. But there was no escaping the likes of "Step By Step", "Hangin' Tough" or "The Right Stuff".

I feel dirty just typing it.

I couldn't think of the big NKOTB song and didn't think Step by Step would do the trick, hopefully you guys are a bunch of younger dudes and my answer is good.

Jesus Christ. I missed out on a good sheep game because I didn't even bother to click on the thread, assuming it was going to be about that Gangnam thing.

That truly is a novelty song that became unexpectedly popular.

Re: Oppa Sheepnam Style!

To be fair, there were already a lot of schlong pictures in his games.

No it's not. It's no more novelty than nay other K-pop song. It's just a genre (and language) that doesn't really get much traction in the U.S., but that doesn't make it novelty.

You are correct, but a few sheep players disagreed.

I don't follow K-Pop, but I thought Gangham Style was intentionally parodic of the genre? Certainly the video is extremely tongue-in-cheek.

Re: Oppa Sheepnam Style!

I took novelty to be synonymous with parody, but that's probably not right either.

Re: Oppa Sheepnam Style!

True. Rebecca Black's "Friday Night" was a novelty song, but it was never intended as parody. And even if "Gangnam Style" were straight-up, it's a novelty to American audiences.

I am sending in answers. Not fair to keep Sheep games open for, like, 4 hours.

Edit: Actually we will put it up to a vote.


Sheep players, what should I do with The Bus' answers. He sent them in 10 hours after the last player. I've turned away at least one other person, and we've also discussed some of the answers already in the thread.

To his credit, he is like the original Sheepmaster or something. He's also lived on 6 continents and you have never heard of any restaurant he's ever been to.

Should I let him in? Some kind of penalty?

I say let him in, unless he wins. Then he is out.

I think The Bus gets an exemption to play but since there has been some discussion of the results the best that he can do is second place.
