6. Jergen's Shampoo--This was a little misleading. You didn't ask for the company, but for the product. The actual name of the shampoo was "Gee Your Hair Smells Terrific," manufactured by Jergens.
7. synonym--LOL I guessed antonym!
8. the Ostrich
TRUTH !!

I missed #3 and #6.

Here is one for you to solve. You may not draw stick figures. I will post the correct answer in 2 days.

Here's the question:

I am a man. If Joe's son, is my son's father; how am I related to Joe?

That was a guess. If you knew for certain, you wouldn't phase it like a question.

Your answer was incorrect. You must walk the plank.

Joe is your son's priest's dad.

LOL I didn't think I was right, but there was a similar answer to a similar question I heard years ago (because a priest is called "father.").
