    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I don't want to horn in on Today's Tease but I thought you might enjoy this....


    (1) There's one "sport" in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends. What is it?

    (2) What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?

    (3) Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables?

    (4) Name the only sport in which the ball is always in possession of the team on defense, and the offensive team can score without touching the ball?

    (5) What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

    (6) In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle?

    (7) Only three words in standard English begin with the letters "dw." They are all common. Name two of them.

    (8) There are fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name half of them?

    (9) Where are the lakes that are referred to in the "Los Angeles Lakers?"

    (10) There are seven ways a baseball player can legally reach first base without getting a hit. Taking a base on balls-a walk-is one way. Name the other six.

    (11) It's the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh. What is it?

    (12) Name six or more things that you can wear on your feet that begin with the letter "S."

    **********************************************

    1. Boxing.

    2. Niagara Falls. The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.

    3. Asparagus and rhubarb.

    4. Baseball.

    5. Strawberry.

    6. The pear grew inside the bottle. The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and are wired in place on the tree. The bottle is left in place for the whole growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at the stems.

    7. Dwarf, dwell, and dwindle.

    On Hollywood Squares last night (02-04) they read a list of eight ways to get to first base. However they were read off so fast that I didn't understand most of them. Perhaps because I don't care for baseball.

    Of course horseradish is a vegetable - it doesn't come from horses.


    It grow underground - the edible part is a root and looks a little like a seet potato - kinda twisted and gnarled looking.


    I remember hearing that you're only supposed to pick it in a month that has an "R" in it for some reason (don't ask me where I heard it or why I remember).
