Aaron was right! The answer is the Alamo. (Now I'll be accused of nepotism!)
Now that you've seen how it is played, maybe I'll do another one next weekend (if anyone is into it). The blogoshpere is so quiet on weekends, so it give you something to think about, right? We gotta put that noggin to work! It's just about association, so be brave and take a guess--all wrong guesses help eliminate options and it takes a few clues to get it because they are often a little convoluted. I mean, something in a purse is a hard question to answer and I didn't think you'd believe me if I said "gunpowder".
Next time I'll choose one that is a little more universal, for the Aussie who insinuated that Davy Crockett is not a universally-known hero... WHAT?? Doesn't everyone, the world over, learn that song in 2nd grade?
Happy Memorial Day! or Happy Monday! depending on where you live ;-)
