Now you made me look; I had only read through the first column of the
article by the time I got to work this morning, and that was all about red,
green, and blue, with a dash of pink here and there.

But a bit further on, I saw you're right! Yum.

Yes, we should get a trademark of BtVS in connection with Perl :)

Does it have questions on Buffy and drinking competitions?

Well it hasn't so far, but it's all down to the whim of the quizmaster. For
new readers, we were just beaten into second place last year as none of us
knew the name of Bill Clinton's dog[1].

 This is our big chance to get revenge for the injustices of last year.

I'll help. Mike Stok and I between managed to answer about all of them
except that stoopid Buddy one.

Paul, should probably get a ticket now

Count me in!


 This is our big chance to get revenge for the injustices of last year.

I'm finding it more annoying now because I've managed to convince myself that the same 
question was asked the previous year.


 [1] Note to self: find out if Dubya has any pets.

... whose name he's used in an Internet context.
Come to think of it, if Buddy was the password, how come we all know what it is 
(now, at least). Aren't passwords supposed to be secret?

I believe there was a news story about the first law to be signed into,
well, law electronically by the POTUS by typing in his dog's name, Buddy,
as the password, or verbage to that effect.
