Thursday Thirteen #78: I'd Like To Solve the Puzzle





In honor of the 35th anniversary of the debut of Wheel of Fortune (which premiered on January 6, 1975), this week's T13 pays tribute to TV's iconic version of Hangman. Below are 13 unsolved puzzles, all with a pop culture angle. You can go here if you'd like to make your own puzzles.

How many of these do you know? Feel free to put your answers in the comments section (which is where I will post the solved puzzles on Friday, January 8th).

Hootin' Anni brought up an excellent point about the "spoiler" aspect of putting the answers in the comments section. You can still put them there, but I've changed my blog settings so that the comment form is now a pop-up window. If you just scroll down to the comment box without peaking at the answers, you will be fine.

Also, don't forget to make your Oscar prediction in the current poll located in the upper left corner of the page... thanks!

Hootin' Anni said...

Excellent....but are we supposed to put our answers here? That kinda spoils it for all the other visitors. But I think I know them all.....


My list of 13 is posted now. It's "If you are from Colorado you know....". It's HERE But, if you wish to stop by to visit you'll find the 13 below my newest pencil sketch, scroll down a bit.

Have a super Thursday.

Gawd, it's too early in the morning for me to try to think, Malcolm! I did figure out Facebook, Jump the Shark, and Diana Ross though, lol.

Thanks for stopping by My Birthday Wish Post on The PopArtDiva Rertro Blog and wishing me a Happy Birthday!
