I was going to mark the ones I did in red, as I usually do, but for some reason the color function isn't working for me right now (I think my computer is having an argument with it).

I got these correct:

2. I am Oz
3. I am Medusa
4. I am a Sauna
5. I am Little Red Riding Hood
6. I am a Flashlight
7. I am the Rocky Mountains
9. I am Coal
10. I am the Museum of Modern Art
11. I am Shel Silverstein
13. I am Oxford University
14. I am Malcolm X
15. I am a Lily

I missed these:

1. I am "Twitter"--Wow, it didn't take me long to forget that one, did it?
8. I am Angela Merkel
12. I am a Bowtie--I just said tie.

I have a good excuse for missing number 2. I was totally traumatized at 5 years old by the wicked witch and her monkeys and to this day have never seen the whole movie, read the book or even knew who wrote it. I know, I need to grow up, suck it up and watch the silly thing!
