PAF – Mike Sittler, his friend

Tom reads the question.
Mike says that it looks like John Lennon is the only one without a mustache.
Tom asks how sure and Mike says he is 75% to 85% sure.

Meredith says that makes no sense to her. He said it looks like it’s John Lennon and then says that he is only 75 to 85% sure. She then says that if the ATA had given Tom those percentages, that he would jump on it, but then he did sound a little odd.

Tom wonders if he should use his 50/50 just in case. ( I can hear a groan. Sounds like Meredith and some laughter from the audience. )


horn

Tom will return for tomorrow’s show.

$8K: The name is familiar, but I can't think of where I've heard it. ATA

Other than that, I'll be going for $50,000 tomorrow with three lifelines at hand.

Time to ATA - I've never heard of "Ross the Intern".

Time to PAF - I can't envision the album cover and couldn't be sure which one would be likely to be without a moustache. I hope my PAF would do a better job of selling the answer. Still, he came up with it.

Before they're trained, Muppets leave little fuzzy piles of polyester fluff all over the rug.

$8K - I have seen Ross on Jay Leno. Ross also was on Celebrity Fit Club on VH1.

$25K - An easy Google. Type "Let It Be" on Google Images, and the album cover pops up six plus times.
