[ what is The Muppet Show ? ]
2. ($1200)- As Ernie, Jim Henson was "awfully fond" of this title toy that earned him a hit record ...
[what is Rubber Duckie ? ]
3. ($2000)- Back in the '60s this co. asked Jim to develop characters for its NET production of "Sesame Street"...
[what is Children's Television Workshop ?]
4.($800)- He was Speaker of the House, replaced by Newt Gingrich ...
[ who is Tom Foley ? ]
5. ($2400)- He turned professional "hit man" in 1977, the same year he won the Golden Gloves championship ...

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
