Saturday Snapshots #49 - The Answers


It's Oh So Quiet on a Sunday morning while we're all waiting for the answers to Saturday Snapshots.

Apparently yesterday's featured some tough ones... well, they all seemed easy enough to me. (But then, they come from my record collection.)

Very close match between Lynchie & Charity Chic, both getting three full correct answers, though Lynchie also gets a quarter point for #7, making him the winner. Martin mopped up the last two, but George deserves extra credit for #5.

3. Stop me if you've heard this one before... Corn, King or Philippine Pit Viper?


Corn, King and Philippine Pit Viper are all - according to an extensive google search - white snakes.
