Darn!! you really burst my bubble, I thought Richard Simmons was the mastermind of all this.

Makes the so-called Christian extremist look like altar boys don't they!

Oh! I apoligize, I would'nt want to upset any atheist or agnostics by mentioning Christians, but there again, any Christian extremist that would blow up an abortion clinic or doing something on that level of major stupidity should'nt be classified Christian anyway, just extremist!

Pretty tough quiz....but I finally realized there was a pattern. All the correct answers were black haired males - Elvis, Pee Wee Herman and Daffy Duck all had alibis. Elvis was spotted in various doughnut shops and/or at Dr. V's office on each date, Pee Wee was either watching peep shows, manually stimulating an organ (not a Werlitzer or any other brand musical instrument), or molesting children on each date in question. Warner Bros. has Daffy under exclusive contract and cannot appear in person outside of their studios. Daffy is a duck of impeccable character and he has "always" honored his contract - with the exception of picking up some Canadian Geese, about 15 years ago, outside the Greyhound Bus Station on Union Ave. in Memphis.
