Just outside of Newark, so a WE®.

And so far, so good for me...

Is Harrison, NJ in the WE® zone? And firefighters are becoming another WE® category also.

I haven't heard this joke, either, but I don't think it's the only command day of the year. What if someone was organizing a parade? He'd have to say to one particular group, "March 1st!" 8)

Now here's a question with a pop cultural reference! In Master and Commander, Captain Aubrey has a military inspiration when Dr. Maturin and Midshipman Blakeney show him a phasmid they've collected.

And that's the only time I've heard it called that word. :wink:

Yeah, but i'll bet he didn't tell the production asst's that he was on Jeopardy during his interview...

I am of the opinion that previous game show experience is smiled upon, not looked down upon by the APs.

It is also possible that what has one be attractive to APs as what would make a 'good' contestant is somewhat universal, so they are going to pick that person anyway.

In other words - don't know which comes first.

I find the bunny suit irresistable. By any chance, do you have a pilot's license?

Thank goodness I wasn't drinking anything when I read this or I would be busy drying off the computer screen. I am laughing so hard I have tears streaming down my face. :D
