I was thinking 'hold my breath', but Don got there first, so I'll take 'reincarnate' for 10 points, please...

My first thought was hold my breath so even though Don Enrico said it first, I'll still say it. (Hey, I was the first to say littering last week, so I at least can be original.)

Here are the panelists' responces:

Officer Lockup sure is a stickler for rules. Yesterday, when a huge asteroid crashed into the city centre, he wrote it a ticket for ...

Jay Temple: failure to yield the right-of-way
GenYus234: littering
ToadMagnet: no seatbelt
MapleLeaf: smoking within 20 feet of a public building
Canuckistan: parking illegally
Roadie: littering

And with that, let's take a look at our first scoreboard:

Dadof3: 2 pts.
tagurit: 2 pts.
MacLloyd: 2 pts.
Stan the Man: 1 pt.
annabohly: 1 pt.
jw: 1 pt.
Cervus: 1 pt.
Moku: 1 pt.

It's still anyone's game, especially if they bribe me! Here's the next question:

***They say that the world is going to end in December, according to the Mayan calendar. I don't know how accurate the Mayans will be, but I'm learning to (blank) just in case.***

Good Luck, and have your answers in by Friday!
Did my bribe not make it to you in time, Mateus?

For the next question, I'm going with repent.

ETA: I spent so much time looking at the last question, I let Chloe get to that answer first!

Well, what did you expect when you mailed me a box of pennies?!

My apologies; I'll be sure to correct the standings in the next round.
