...And with that, we end the first round! Here are the responces from the esteemed panelists:

I think that Santa hasn't been keeping up with the modern technology. I asked him for something that will let me keep in touch with my family, and he left a (BLANK) under my tree.

Roadie: Carrier pigeon
Minstrel: Carrier pigeon
Seaboe Muffinchucker: Extra hand
GenYus234: Telegraph
SatansHobbit: Homing pigeon
rangerdog: CB radio

So with that, let's see what our scoreboard looks like:

Beachlife!: 3 pts.
diddy: 3 pts.
greenfrog78: 1 pt.

Hmm, not great, but it's still early. Perhaps this round will shake things up:

***Dumb Dora is so dumb, ["How dumb is she?"] she tried to (BLANK) the Yule Log TV program***

Good Luck, and have your answers in by Monday!

Roast marshmallows. (Like my friend's kids did. Because it was a fun thing to do.)

rujasu: 3 pts.
Dear Babby: 3 pts.
