Well, just about bedtime for me, and no new guesses. These last two are really oddballs.

1. In 1983, a Japanese artist made a copy of the Mona Lisa completely out of toast!

10. Two-thirds of the world's eggplant is grown in New Jersey! Who knew?

Looks as if our next quizmaster will be the chicken. Take it away, poobear_nc!

No bird brain here! My brain is stuffed with an alarming conglomeration of ..... stuff .....
[I was sure Ramen noodles was the correct answer!]

Oh well ... now for something totally different!

Big news this past weekend - Australia finally scored its first win in the US Masters Golf Tournament - when Adam Scott won during a sudden death playoff against Angel Cabrera - in the rain!

So, the USA is the "master" winner of the Masters Tournament (57 wins by 35 golfers - in its 77 year history), and Australia has notched up 1 win.

Golfers from only 9 other countries have managed to win at Augusta. Can you name the countries? An extra point for number of wins!

[Hint - United Kingdom is NOT a correct answer - you must name the individual country]

Fore!
