CUP #26 Answer and CUP #27

Indeed, yesterday’s CUP was Metamucil.

Madam? Would you like a glass of our house’s finest Orange?

And don’t any of you give me crap about “What? ‘Older’?!” Young people don’t worry about fiber. That’s a fact. I’ve got numbers for it. Somewhere. Let’s chat points!

You guys are awesome. Look at the time stamps on these two answers:

This hasn’t happened in the history of the CUP Contest, but yesterday we had two correct answers that were submitted at exactly the same time (according to the timestamp). I’m giving both Lance Finney and AnyEdge 100 points for their answers. AnyEdge is also a new player, and thus is awarded +50 welcome points. Thanks for joining the game, AnyEdge!

Anyone who guessed some sort of fiber is being lumped in with the Fiber Cadre. Metamucil, Benefiber, Psyllium, whatever. “Orange Metamucil” would really have impressed me, but any of these were acceptable. So Carly, Erin, Vicki, Judi, Michelle and Lynn all get 25 points for correct answers.

GroundlessPossibilities, Ellie, Heidi, Jeremy, Cate! and Noelle get 15 points for playing, but no extra for their guesses. Well, okay, Noelle gets +5 points because of her supposition that older people like denture powder and cocaine. I had to read that one twice.

There were no major upsets overnight, but with his recent win newcomer Lance Finney is edging ever closer toward the top of the rankings! Jeremy ducked in to save his 4th place spot for another day, and the order remains the same as yesterday. Carly is now 245 points away from the finish line!

CUP CONTEST UPDATE: There will be no new CUP Contests until Monday November 28th. I shall be entertaining family and joining the crazed hordes of Black Friday shoppers this weekend and expect that some of you will similarly occupied. The answer for today’s CUP will also post on Monday. Speaking of which…

What is CUP #27?

    The edge of your purse

    The spine of a home-bound book. That is to say, a book that you bound yourself.

    The seam of a leather purse

  5. 5

    The closed opening of a purse.

    Backgammon hinge. Carly got it.

  7. 7

    Looks like the top of a purse to me.

    I concur with team hinge. I originally thought briefcase but a white briefcase seems like asking for trouble. A backgammon boards seems as plausible as anything else.

    It’s funny that AnyEdge and I tied – we’ve been good friends for years, but we discovered this blog completely independently.

    Gotta go with Carly on this one. Definitely backgammon.

    I’m late to the game but I have to agree with backgammon. The pointy leather pieces are from playing spots on the game

    Sorry, I’m suffering from a post thanksgiving coma. This is as good as it gets. Hope you had a great holiday and productive Black Friday!
