Yeah, I was thinking along the same lines as Dear Babby, so I'll also say Canned Goods.

...And with that, we end the third round! Here are the panelists' esteemed answers:

Roadie: 2013 calendars
Minstrel: booze
Seaboe Muffinchucker: Calendars
GenYus234: Calendars
SatansHobbit: Beer
rangerdog: Steaks


Sadly, our judge has decided that, despite it being available in cans, "beer" won't count for "canned goods" (I tried). Also, I suppose I should explain the concept of Match Game to him someday....

Here's our current scoreboard:

diddy: 7 pts.
greenfrog78: 4 pts.
Stan The Man: 3 pts.
Beachlife!: 3 pts.
rujasu: 3 pts.
Dear Babby: 3 pts.
Darth Credence: 2 pts.
Dadof3: 1 pt.
nonnieyrissa: 1 pt.

So what's the fourth round question? I'm glad you asked:

***I woke up New Years Day in the slammer; apparently Officer Lockup caught me dropping my (BLANK) at the stroke of midnight.***

Good Luck, and have your answers in by Monday lunch break!

This seems too easy, so I'll probably match no one. Pants.

From what I've seen of the original Match Game (with Gene Rayburn) beer (or its cousins) was always well stockpiled backstage (or under the panelists' counters).

Already struck out twice, so no sense going with the obvious now...

Ok, nobody else has;

but, considering what they do in New York City for New Year's at the stroke of midnight, I've got to suggest:

drop balls.

Thank you judges

So are pants and underpants the same thing? I'm going with underpants! Pants alone isn't scandalous enough.

If I were a judge (and I am not though I have attempted to bribe them!*) I would say yes since most people dropping their pants would include their underwear as well. Of course dropping pants doesn't always necessitate dropping underpants since not everyone wears them

*Note the above statement about bribery is not actually true....

SatansHobbit: Balls
rangerdog: Pants


Perverts, the lot of ya!

As it turns out, our judge has ruled that "pants" and "underwear", in the context of the question, means the same thing, and he also thanks diddy for that hot tub filled with hundred-dollar bills that showed up on our porch coincidentally.

Here's our current scoreboard:

diddy: 11 pts.
greenfrog78: 8 pts.

Beachlife!: 7 pts.
rujasu: 7 pts.
Stan The Man: 7 pts.
Dear Babby: 7 pts.

Darth Credence: 6 pts.
Thorny Locust: 2 pts.
Dadof3: 1 pt.
nonnieyrissa: 1 pt.

On to the final round! This round is worth.... 3 pts each! Remember, only contestants who supplied an answer in the previous rounds are eligible for the bonuses:

***I don't want to say that Chanukah is misunderstood in American society, but I went to the store the other day, and all their menorahs were (BLANK).***

Good Luck, and have your answers in by Thursday lunch break!
