In card games, a burn card is a playing card dealt from the top of a deck, and discarded ("burned"), unused by the players. Burn cards are almost always placed face down next to the discard pile without being revealed to the players. Burning is most often performed in casinos to deter a form of cheating known as card counting.

3. Amos 'n' Andy--Got this one
4. When a Man Loves a Woman--Nope
5. A Cat--Nope (I guessed dog)
6. Shiva--Nope

Okay on #2, as it was the only thing I could think of, except Fibber Magee & Molly.
Okay on #8, as I did a skit with a friend in highschool with a friend (moms' made the costumes) But we sang....
"ooey, gooey, rich and chewy inside, white and flakey, moist and cakey outside. You put the inside on the outside, and what do ya got? You got a big Fig Newton. One more time. You got a big Fig Newtoooooon!"
I LOVE that jingle!
