You all owned me yesterday. I mean…you guys just annihilated that CUP. In deference to being incredibly, thoroughly owned I am awarding 20 points to everyone who played yesterday on top of the points listed below.
Lance was quickest with his answer of “carpet” and is awarded 100 points. Lance is on fire, y’all.
Okay, now we have a lot of additional points to award…
Ellie was the first to specify berber carpet. That is absolutely correct. Ellie gets 25 points for a correct answer plus 10 points for specificity.
Then Judi upped the bar for specificity with her answer “I’m even going to go so far as to say it’s industrial strength carpet found in the hallway of your apartment complex or place of employment or in your car!” Judi gets 25 points for a correct answer plus 15 points for specificity. This carpeting is found in the jury assembly room in the Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis.
The following people guessed “carpet” and may have even included something about “berber” or “office” or “commercial” in your guesses. You do not get additional points for these because Ellie and Judi beat you to it. But you do get points for siding with Team Commercial Berber Carpet: Michelle, Noelle, GroundlessPossibilities, Erin and Vicki all get 25 points for correct answers.
Carly and Jude decided to be different. *shakes head sadly* You get no points for nonconformity, you rabblerousers. You get 15 points for playing. I’ll give Jude an extra 5 points for somehow working Tourette’s Syndrome into the comments. There’s no logic here…it just seems right.
Alright, so that CUP might not have been too challenging, but I enjoyed your answers and putting points to them. Well done, everyone! Thanks for playing.
And we’re off and running for CUP #24.
Oh, but before we get there I have a quick housekeeping note: I’m going to cut the CUP Contest for the weekend. I’ve been jonesing to do some other writing for the blog, so I’m going to take a break from CUP over the weekend. We’ll be back for the answer to #24 on Monday at noon. I’ll leave comments enabled until sometime Sunday evening. At that point I’ll close them so I can score and get the CUP Winners page updated.
Without further ado, may I present CUP #24!
What are we looking at?
