What's red, fuzzy, and started a lot of fights in the 90's? Why Elmo, of course! We take a trip to Sesame Street for Elmo's Birthday Game, a Candy Land-esque affair where players race to get all their gifts to Elmo's party before he arrives to speak in the third person about his cake and stuff. Does this title contain sufficient levels of Oscar the Grouch to be an acceptable game for your family? Plus, in the Battle of Wits, we play a classic Sesame Street game...

I know Flip's answers are gospel and not open to debate, but clearly the correct answer to the first question was grapes.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
He was clear to say that was a "bunch of grapes" which are referred to in the plural form whereas the rest were clearly a singular object. An apple. A watermelon. The Borg being a single collective of course.

Here's my thought on that question..
Spoiler (click to reveal)
I thought it were things that were cube shaped... Borg obviously, but also
a watermelon, and an apple
.

I was actually really close on a couple of those questions - and for the right reasons. Once I got that there was actually some Sesame Street related answer that was correct, it was a little easier to see the connection. of course, my answers would not have been nearly as entertaining, but it was a bit scary how much I remembered from that show (and the Sesame Street Encyclopedia - all 15 volumes for those who remember that old set).

I usually listen to FTT over the radio using an iAccessory. This was the first time I actually was sitting somewhere comfy and had headphones. The audio quality and details come out so much better that way. I'll have to relisten to some of my fav episodes now
