Galvanized to Last

It’s quiz-show time! Any guesses what the above comes from? I’ll post a photographic answer next week. No cheating (remember, Sean Connery is watching)! Have a great weekend, everyone!

‘Sean Connery’: “Uh… I’ll take “Swords” for $400.”

‘Alex Trebek’: “It’s actually not ‘Swords’… these are words that begin with ‘S’. The answer is: ‘Popeye is this sort of man’. Burt Reynolds?”

‘Burt Reynolds’: “What is… Popeye?”

‘Alex Trebek’: *sigh* “No. Sean Connery? And, remember, these are words that begin with the letter ‘S’, not ‘Swords’.”

‘Sean Connery’: “Saber!”

‘Alex Trebek’: “No.”

‘Sean Connery’: “It began with a bloody ‘S’!”

  1. I’m guessing a container of some kind, like a grain silo or an oil tank.

    Does “rus-pruf” have the same relationship to rust-proof that “cheez” has to cheese?

  2. I don’t know …. but I like it!
    Oil drum seems too obvious/easy. Grain drum seems too obvious/easy. or, are you tricking us to think it isn’t what it obviously seems to be? (or something like that!) Have a great weekend, SIG!

    • Hahaha… I really didn’t have much of a strategy, here. But I’ll probably wait until next week to say for sure. It seems more fun that way. Thank you very much, Ms. D – I hope you have a great one as well! πŸ™‚

    • Indeed, sir! I was wondering if anyone would comment on that ‘Celebrity Jeopardy’ quote!
      Hahaha… I definitely wouldn’t advise trying to stick your tongue on it in the middle of the winter!

  3. looking forward to the answer next week, but for now…

  4. This is a tough one. Hmm…Why do Slinkis keep coming to mind? Do they even make slinkies anymore?

  6. Well as we’re specifically not allowed to cheat, then I have to confess to having no clue whatsoever… Sheesh, whoever heard of a competition where you’re not allowed to cheat !!!… lol… Nice shot though SIG.. πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha… as always, remember this is not a competition, it’s only an exhibition, please no wagering. (Letterman used to say that all the time… it just randomly popped into my head for some reason).
      Thank you very much, F.S.!

  7. Now that I know what this is, it makes me want to check out my family’s grain bins next time I’m in Ohio. I assume they’re not even rus-pruf but also rat-pruf and 8-year-old-Katie-pruf. I used to spend a lot of time playing around those things as a kid.
