*Seidelman Note: Although this
moment happened last week, this was too good to pass up. So, It
goes on the website under the Secily Rule, where if an answer is so bad
and it happened on Friday, then it carries over to next week.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the write-up. And now, Jim Williams with
our Dumb Answer of the Week.*
GSN's 1 vs. 100 makes yet another appearance
in GSG's Dumb Answer of the Week. That's twice in less than a month.
Please say hello to our newest honoree in the 1 vs. 100 Hall of Shame.

Eerily enough, no applause was heard after she locked in.
And why would they applaud anyway? They know that the correct answer is
Yes. And to add insult to injury, Carrie Ann (the brain trust that she
is) goes through the riddle with her. Say it with me, altogether now.
This little piggy went to market. That's 1.
This little piggy stayed home. That's 2.
"This little piggy had roast beef at Arby's."
That's 3 and a plug that I'm sure the folks at Arby's appreciate.
Well, at least Hannah wasn't alone. 22 mobsters also erred in answering
the question. So that leaves the remaining 60 members of the mob to
split the grand prize of...
