The Comeback Challenge ~ Round 52 Results ~
1 Cup Lunatic

It's been a very strange week. And getting stranger by the second it seems. I've been trying to post this competition for three hours. In the middle of scoring the game, Blogger scored a scheduled outage. Don't they know they're holding up progress here?
Then the pictures made spaces appear in the middle of the text, formatting did not work, I lost all my font colors and on and on and on. Started over. When I finally resumed the judging I had to whip out my dreaded bleeper three times. But what funny answers! And you warned me before the axe even fell on your humor. I felt sorry for the new players. I couldn't decide. To bleep or not to bleep.
I bleeped. I unbleeped. Someone said to me recently, "Well, you are just so prissy." I get it! Lighten up, Mimi!
I'm trying to get over it. Really I am.
But what do you expect when the first question deals with "paranormalists."
Don't you think that guy in the mirror is a little off?
And the man in the picture below just looks wicked.......
So were the contestant's answers. Here's what happened.
