  1. My smart alec answers: 10) fruitcake (not different ones, the same one). 9) As I scan the TV listings, I notice that Joe Dirt has been on more this month. And a tweak to question 3) the appropriate question should be, who cleans up after all these animals and crazy people get done milking, leaping, swimming, drumming, etc. And last but not least 1) hmmmm....frankincence and myrhh? Seems the underlying meaning was that someone smelled really bad!
