My Cool Points Brings All the Commenters to the Yard***UPDATE: Winner and New Idea***

To reward my freakin' cool peeps, I have decided to do a bit of a contest!

If you haven't noticed, I'm a bit of a pop culture addict. It infiltrates my subconscious, my writing, my moves...everything!

Every post or so, I will most likely make an oblique cultural reference (this could be music, movies, TV, history from any era!)and ask you a question to go with it:

Who sings the song I am mocking in my title? (2 CK pts.)
or What is the real title of the song I am mocking in my title? (1 CK pts.)
Who is that singer married to? (4 CK pts.)
YEA, Jill, who guessed almost the second I hit publish! 7 CK pts. to you!

Yes, it is sad that I know this off the top of my head. Since I obtained this info trying to act like a Cool Kid, I have dubbed these Cool Kid points. I figured I should exercise all that knowledge in my head, reward those who know it as well, and educate those who don't!

The first person to get the answer correct wins the allotted points (more points for the harder the question).

The person with the most points at the end of the month wins a fun prize...um...not sure what it is yet, but it will be worth it. I will keep track on my sidebar!

So to start us off...can anyone answer those questions above?

My girl, Red White & Preppy, came up with another version for those late commenters...ask me a trivia question PERTAINING to the topic. If I can't answer it...1 CK pt. to you!
This is gonna be fun!


Jill Williams said...

Oh this is fun!!!


The Roaming Southerner said...

DANG! Way to go Jill!
7 pts. to start it off!

Red and White Preppy said...

Darn! I didn't post first. How about this fun fact about Kelis and Nas:
- They had to purchase a home far, far away from neighbors because apparently this married couple gets QUITE loud during their horizontal polka sessions :)

Does that get me any points? :)

The Roaming Southerner said...

Huh, RW&P...that is a thought...maybe we should do a stump TRS!?!?!

Ask a question and if I can't answer it...then you get a point!

So as Cool Kid Point Commisioner...I award a a point for helping come up with this idea!

Curtis said...

Who the heck is Kellis? That sounds made up. I'm stuck in 80s and 90s pop culture anyway. If there are going to be any references to High School Musical on this blog, I might as well quit coming around here, Alex. I'm too old for those kind of references.

80s and 90s pop culture is the cornerstone of my trivia knowledge...there will also be literature, history, and a lot of other random things! You will be able to catch up, Curtis

Buffalo Betty said...

Whoa, "oblique cultural reference," I'm gonna need some more education to understand your blog if you keep this up.
