#3 was right on the edge of my brain, but all I could come up with was "some kind of choir." :wacko: On #6 I got the penguin part but didn't know the specific breed.

I got all the rest correct. :smile:

I decided penguin, but that was as far as I got. Got the rest!

I got Final Jeopardy the other night within a nano second of time up...shocked the heck out of me. I was very surprised I knew it and pulled it out in time. Shrek just sat there shaking his head in disbelief.

FYI - The part of a JEOPARDY "question" that's in Parentheses is not necessary for a correct "question", but is included for specificity. -http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/3/3_12_23v.gif
