CUP #24 Answer and CUP #25

Welcome back, CUPers!

As many of you surmised, last Friday’s CUP was the head and handle of a Swiffer mop without a cleaning pad on it!

Lisa was the first to answer correctly, and is awarded 100 points! This is also Lisa’s first entry into the game, and I am awarding her +50 welcome points. Thanks for playing, Lisa!

Erin, Vicki, Carly, Michelle, Ellie, Judi and Groundless Possibilities all get 30 points for their correct guesses. Erin gets +10 points for posting within one minute of Lisa.

Jude gets 15 points for playing, +10 points for his excellent answer “Whatever it is, I’m guessing that it’s circular, from the placement of the bumps. So it’s a physical representation of a logical fallacy.”

Lance Finney, Christopher Baye, Noelle, and Heidi all get 15 points for playing but no extra points for their guesses.

And with this last contest we have an upset in the rankings! Carly and Vicki have pulled ahead to the #1 and #2 positions! Jeremy is now tied with Erin, and Noelle and Michelle are potentially only one CUP away!

Top 10 Ranking Players

So, everyone, what do you think we’re looking at in CUP #25?

    Algae pattern on top of a body of water. I’m no scientist, but looks like some other biological goop too. Maybe multiple types of algae?

      Carly

      That is to say, on the surface of a body of water.

  2. 2
    Lance Finney

    Leafs on water?

    1. 2.1
      Lance Finney

      Or even leaves.

  3. 3
    Erin

    Increbile Hulk “emissions”? :/ Obviously, you stumped me on this one and I’m aiming for humor points.

      Erin

      The joke is funnier when I spell ‘incredible’ correctly.

  4. 4
    Michelle

    Going out on a limb here, I’m guessing it is an imprint in burned plastic.

    But that’s a deeply wild guess.

      Michelle

      Do I get extra points for making note that I’ve started delaying my lunch hour to make sure I see the CUP post sooner rather than later?

      …I didn’t think so. Madcap shenanigans / desperate efforts for additional validation rarely work with you.

    Lily pad leaves.

    That is oily water on a leaf.

    Stained glass?

    I’m with the lily pad leaves sitting on water contingent.

    Cate!

    Although initially I thought “Damn! She spilled Coke on the work table and didn’t even clean it up!”

  12. 12

    Embossed or imprinted design on pottery or a tabletop…

  13. 13
    Heidi

    Stained glass or a ceramic tile

    I have no clue so I’m going to guess: goo?

    groundlesspossibilities

    Polished rock bookend.

  16. 16
    Ellie

    Oil slick with lily pad.
