Saturday Snapshots #31 - The Answers

Cheer up, sleepy Jean - it's time for this week's answers.

I think we can all agree that Rigid Digit takes the prize this week, claiming 4 and a half points early on. Charity Chic got 2 and half. C got 2. Lynchie took the last point. Alyson and Chris snoozed and losed.

Let's stop monkeeing about and get on with the solutions...

The Swinging Blue Jeans - Hippy Hippy Shake

9. Get Michael Caine's mini - it's about to topple over! The police have lost their magic.

Michael Caine was Carter (Get Carter). If his car was about to topple over, it would be a Car-lean. The Police sung Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic. Lose the magic and...

8. Woody Allen's train track leads us to Reservoir Dogs.

This one you should have got just from the picture.

Woody Allen had a film called Sleeper which is also part of a train track. Reservoir Dogs featured Nice Guy Eddie.

Mariah without me (I) is just Marah.

1. Stone or Osbourne? What comes first? It's a gift.

Sharon + A (the first letter). If you've got a gift, you've got the knack.

Have yourself a Pleasant Valley Sunday... I'll see you next week.


  1. Not to be ungrateful or anything, but I posted the answer to Number 4 less than a nanosecond after C and feel I deserve half...or maybe a quarter of a point for that one.

    I know C's answer is timed at 9.25 and mine at 9.26 but I can honestly say that C's answer was not visible on the page when I posted my answer.

    Just sayin, like...

  2. Thanks as always, Rol - can't believe how quickly all the answers were snapped up. Gram, I know the feeling re. the timing, we were undoubtedly typing it at the same time. That Rol is very strict, though....

  3. I may have "snoozed and losed" but still fun to play along before scrolling down to the answers. Would have got a few points anyway. From experience, as C says, it's all in the timing of who presses publish first!

    Great pic of Davy Jones at the top - Wonder when you're going to run out of "famous music stars with their camera" shots - Not for some time hopefully.

  4. I'm now waking up on Saturday mornings and saying "Quick, get to Saturday Snapshots first". It is strangely addictive.
    Everyone needs a hobby
