Actually assuming column 0 is 'no' and column 1 is yes, then your combinations are:

0 0 (no answer)
0 1 (yes)
1 0 (no)
1 1 (yes and no)

Therefore, you have a 25% chance of being correct.

I can put a hotdog wrapped in bacon up here, but as far as a pole wrapped in bacon I think I have to draw the line short of some random morality barrier.

But then again we did have photos of boobs wrapped in bacon.

So it's a stick not a pole... but use your imagination.

I'm tracking down some fair food from the Minnesota state fair. I will report back.

Edit: One of the old favorites is bacon-wrapped turkey on a stick. One of the new for 2008 foods is chocolate-covered bacon on a stick. I may need to attend this year just for pictures.

Deep fried peach cobbler

Both on sticks.

School already-- have you started the countdown until Gabe leaves the nest for college yet? But hey, don't worry, no doubt the public school system will shortly recommend that he be homeschooled and you'll be back to a full-time career...

I'm having a hard time picking sides. I thing I'll wait and see which way the winds are blowing and then jump in at the very end, bayonet the wounded and declare victory.

I voted No. Should I have voted Yes? Do you need some hanging chads? Stuffed ballot boxes? Let's do whatever it takes to get it right.

Please do not vote if you aren't sure of your opinion... it would skew the results of the poll.
