The Comeback Challenge Round 44 Results
You Better Have the Dough and A Very Large Swatter



There are answers and then there are answers. Sometimes a contestant's personality shines through the answer and you just have to laugh because well.....they have their own style. Take Frank's answer to question #5. Classic Frank.  And then there's Anyhow who always brings a young fresh perspective to this competition. He's too young to know about the pitfalls of marriage, divorce, remarriage, relationship and re-relationship and yet he gave one of the funniest -and mature - comebacks to question #3 on the subject of matrimony.

One-of-a-kind answers and a three-way tie. All we needed was a big fly swatter to get to the bottom of the competition. No need for the magic bleeper. Everyone behaved themselves with equal snark and witticism. And I do mean equal. A three-way tie??!

We had to rely on the "bar fly" question to break the dreaded quandry.


Here's what happened.
