Fresnocity goes big time

Fresnocity led the game from the get go last night, and then won the jackpot. Congratulations. Santorum Drips-uh-Drops Out won round 4 and we'll see their topics in 2 weeks.

Why 2 weeks? Well, next week Fresnocity will be guest hosting. They'll be creating all the questions and running the show in a stand-alone, winner take all game. Your regular hosts will be playing against you all (and most likely losing horribly).  We hope we see you all next week.
