Okay...FOR ALL Y'ALL AMERICAN HISTORY BUFFS!!!

Quick...

Who was Garret Hobart?



I will give you a couple of clues, but if you Gooblecheat, I will know.

1)  He lived from 1844 to 1899.  

2)  He was from New Jersey (get a rope).

That's all.  I actually thought he might be the guy that started the Hobart Appliance deal, which somehow got merged with KitchenAid in the way back.  Heck, he might have been...or at least some kin.  But that ain't what I'm looking for.

Regardless...bitchin' 'stache, huh?

I'm just doing this to make a point.  You've got no idea who the guy is, and you know you don't.  But at one time, the future of the Republic may have hanged in the balance because of this guy...this guy that you have no idea who he is now.  Heck, I guess that's another clue.  We'll call that one a freebie.

  2. Good guess, Moogie! Even though it is wrong, I can tell that you did not Gooblecheat. So, your stock rises even further.

  3. He invented the horse (US Pat. No. 12345) which then allowed Teddy Roosevelt to charge up San Diego Hill to stop the advancing horde of Mongrels led by Genghis Can.

    And who says a public school education is worthless?

  9. Does it shock you that I know? But, then again, I have read everything ever written about Theodore Roosevelt.

  10. TD, it does not shock me one bit that you know. I figured that you, and Joubert would. But, keep it under your pretty pink guitar, okay?

  11. Well, I dunno. And I AM abiding by the rules and will not cheat. So we await the answer with (somewhat) bated breath. We'd bait our breath, but we seem to be fresh out. Of bait.

  12. Buck, I'm sorry you're out of bait. In those cases, I've found that you're usually okay if you just take one of those floating dead crickets, and spit on it.

    The White Perch seem to bite on the dead ones anyway once there is some human spittle on 'em. Don't axe me why...they just do.

  13. I gots no idea, but there's a Hobart, Oklahoma, down by Lone Wolf and Gotebo. One probably has nothing to do with the other, I'm just sayin'.

  14. Staci, you are good non-Gooblecheater! I actually knew about Hobart, and Lone Wolf, OK. But you stumped me on "Gotebo."

    I thought that was the Florida fight song for a couple of years. Just sayin'...

    No, you're gonna be shocked when you find out who Mr. Hobart was. I mean, he was just ONE BREATH AWAY...

  17. Does this mean no one gets the crown?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm getting there, Moogie...Paul Mitchell shall receive the crown, because he knows, and I knew that he would.

    ReplyDelete
  19. How many crowns does one guy need, anyway!!!?!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well, why would anyone need a CROWN room?

    What has two thumbs and is a WINNAH?
