"Name That Pattern" -- CELEBRITY FINALS!



Readers, life is funny -- some might even say hilarious.  This is usually only in retrospect, of course, when the tears have long since dried and the therapy bills been paid.  But seriously, you need a sense of humor to navigate this life and you, clever readers, have one.

I was very impressed by your skill (and enthusiasm) at playing Name That Pattern yesterday.  So impressed, in fact, that you are ALL eligible to compete in the finals -- Michael included!

The theme of our final round -- is CELEBRITY PATTERNS.

Please give a name to the following patterns (not just the names of the celebrities, of course). 

On your marks, get set....GO!  

Pattern 1

Pattern 2  



 (My answer: "Leggo my Ego")

Pattern 3



(My answer: "Too short and too sassy.")

Pattern 4



 (My answer: "Brooke bears all!")

Pattern 5



(My answer: "A Lexus doing (nineteen) eighty")

$100,000* bonus pattern!



(My entry: "Do mi mi, mi sew sew...ugly cape")

Good luck, funny people!

    1. Suzi, I'm terribly sorry, but our judges have just informed me that, as of 8:20 am EST, you have yet to submit entries to the original "Name That Pattern" game, and are therefore disqualified.

      You CAN still enter that game and restore your eligiblity, but please hurry!
