    What do these three have in common?
    • MOTHER-IN-LAW
    • WIDOW
    • KINGPIN

    Answer: They're pins in bowling (slang).

    A couple more people got this one, but there were some good guesses!

    Players who got it right: BigBlue, EricBess, sageridder

    Scores:

    sageridder 4
    EricBess 3
    BigBlue 2.5
    Jigglypuff 2
    TomB 2
    train 2
    Apollo 1

    Zero T Katama 1

    I'm rapidly falling out of contention here. I'd be better off if Spidey had given me partial credit for some of my more creative answers, but oh well...

    hey - kingpin and widow are snow-boarding terms and mther-in-law is something you make fun of about someone else while at the ski lodge...

    but I'm not a sore loser...

    You know, I never heard of these slang names for bowling pins. I remembered that there was a movie with Woody Harrelson about bowling called Kingpin, so I went with that.

    I don't know all of them. The layout is like this:

    .....1
    ....2 3
    ...4 5 6
    .7 8 9 10

    The headpin is 1. The kingpin is 5. I'm not sure the other two. I think the widow is 10 and the mother-in-law is 4, but those would just be guesses. I've heard of the widow before, but not the mother-in-law. I was guessing based on 2 out of 3... :D
  6. BigBlue Magic Jones

    I was guessing on 2 out of 3 too...

    I think those names come from when you leave 'em in a split... One being a widow the other a mother in law...

    But I'm not much of a bowler. And I don't even play one on TV.

    I thought the five pin was the sex pin. :confused: :confused: And check this out!

    ...1
    ..2 3
    .4 5 6
    7 8 9 10

    EDIT: Okay, so it doesn't look quite right.
