Thor, I expect you to spend the next week in Photoshop working on "If They Mated..." type photos for all of our results.

You aren't allowing Pailin and pretty boy Edwards? Also, who wouldn't pay to see Clinton vs. Pailin?

You know what... after further review, there really isn't any good reason not to allow incorrect answers in a SheepMate question.

Feel free to PM me any changes. They WILL be allowed if you want.

I do however understand Red Dog's frustration with having to guess how many people will not properly comprehend a question.

Jesus. Then I don't know why you just didn't just ask who + Sarah Palin would make the most attractive kid or who is the most attractive male politician.

Fuck it - I'll leave my answers the same.

I hear you. But to disregard incorrect answers would violate a basic precept of Sheep games it seems. If the question was stated poorly enough that people don't grasp that it calls for a currently elected official, then the blame may rest on the Sheep Questioneer (me, in this case). I took great care in coming up with the wording of the questions to avoid confusion. For instance, I used the words "currently" and "elected." Next time I will try to be more clear. Somehow.

Perhaps this little exercise has drawn enough attention to the question that people now understand what it means. Perhaps it will have the opposite effect. That will require a sheephavioral analysis.

I will not consider answers final unless someone specifies that their answers are final.

Feel free to send revisions through Monday.

I just think people are going to purposefully disregard the requirement, particularly now.

I think a sheep game requiring correct answers (for fact-based questions) at some point would be a nice change.

To discount incorrect answers that happen en masse would violate the very nature of our political system in this country.

(But I agree with you. I also think you should have to pass a simple multiple choice test for your vote to count in an election )

That makes no sense and shows a fundamental misunderstanding of what makes Sheep fun.

Red Dog: Give me my hotel back, punk!

Opponent: Game's over, Red Dog. You won... again!

Red Dog: Put that hotel back on Park Place. Now.

Opponent: My mom said company is coming over and I'm supposed to clean up after-

Red Dog: *#*%*% eminent domain!

Yes, any change that would increase the amount of bitching in theses threads would be a welcomed one.

Red Dog's suggestion has given me an idea for the next game I run.

Thanks, Thebus. For pointing this out you are entitled to one mis-spelling in your answers. The second will receive a 10 point penalty.
