where's bob now contest?

uh oh!
bob's on the move again.
just arrived safe in a cool part of the world and then moving on to a another cool joint.
can you figure out where?
no hints this time.
instead, you can ask questions until you get a no answer, like "i've got a secret".
you can guess anytime but if you guess wrong, you are done for that location.
however, you have two chances.
good luck.

and the prize: is a baseball autographed by me or a $15 itunes or $15 starbucks card.

Oh boy! America’s favorite find a bob game is back, and with a fresh new format! Okay, I’m gonna start off real cautious-like this time and try to slice off some of the less likely sections of the globe: Is Bob above the 40th parallel north, below the 60th parallel north, and not in a state that ends in -ota?

Robert Crane said...

randy copping a latitude already. gotta check ... one second ... yes! do you care to guess at this time or continue?

lightly said...

now robert we west of the cold place and above the 42, we get rain not snow.
so is it raining where you are?

Robert Crane said...

i just checked lightly and let me say that you are barely getting a yues from me. it's misty. so watch your step buddy boy. my finger is on the eject button.

supermom said...

are there lots of mountains Bob?

and don't worry about Lightly, he just wants you to visit.

Robert Crane said...

okay supermom, you get a 1/2 yes too. there are no mountains but it is slightly hilly. the mountains are about 275 miles to the south east.

Randy Johnson said...

Okay Bobby, I'm gonna live dangerously here and guess you're still in the USA.
Without leaving the state you’re in can you go stick your head in Lake Michigan?

itsmecissy said...

Oh no, I'm not playing this game again. Uh uh, no way Jose!

itsmecissy said...

Ok, is it cold enough to keep a pork chop frozen?

I really need that $15 Starbucks card...

Warning: When using Google maps to see how far Detroit is from the Blue Ridge Mountains DO NOT point at the screen with an uncapped Sharpee marker.

Thank you ehow.com. White toothpaste did get it off.

Robert Crane said...

Randy is so far off, it's embarrasskin!

Robert Crane said...

hint: on my way to second destination by train, high speed one at that.

Robert Crane said...

Here's a big hint. JUst ran into the Wales rugby team in our hotel lobby. they're big guys and keaton was rather smitten by their rugby shorts. me? not so much.

Randy Johnson said...

Étonnant! ...Bob’s in France! (just hours from Lake Michigan by the way, where Bob could easily go dip his head without leaving his “state” of confusion… just saying, maybe the official judging of this contest is a little harsh.)

Randy Johnson said...

Oops, I was so excited to learn of your close proximity to Lake Michigan I forgot to specify Paris, France as your location... but is Paris the arrival city or departure city of the high speed rail trip? Hmmm….

lightly said...

wales is visiting boulder Colorado to teach you people how real sports are played.

instead on holding keatons purse go watch a real game

Pamela Beers. said...

Were you invited to the royal wedding? They like horse pucky by the way.

lightly said...

sour grapes Pam, sour grapes.
i was invited but alas i had to decline the invitation , i too busy trying to find bob in glendale's infinity park stadium to attend.

Pamela Beers. said...

Speaking of sour grapes, do they grow Merlot grapes where you are, Bob? Thanks, lightly. smooch.

itsmecissy said...

I vote with Randy, bob is in Paris, France.

Robert Crane said...

i can't believe the level of contestantude. i have to pretty much spell it out for ya and one person, who shall remain nameless, has me in some god forsaken stadium carrying keaton's purse.

well, i have to say as they say in paris and spell it in new jersey, "WEE", to randy and itsme.

that was practice since none of you followed the rules, which will now change.

no more questions (that idea crumbled like a week old corn muffin anyway).

i will give hints, like the riddler, except you'll never figure them out so why bother except it's interesting to see indications of our declining civilization.

hint 1: riddle me this: what might i see that would stop me in my tracks, lest the wheels come flying off my whole operation accidentally.

Randy Johnson said...

Okay, all I get from hint #1 is that Bob’s green Riddler tights are too tight, and cutting off circulation to his thinking regions. Admit it Bob, you’re not at your 1967 riddlin’ weight anymore, so go put on some sweat pants and when you return to your normal color try typing a hint that makes some sense. We’ll wait… In the mean time I’ll go stick hint #1 in the ol’ Bat-Computer and see what pops out.

itsmecissy said...

Holy Merde Batman, what is a flying frozen pork chop!

I'm done with this game...

Randy Johnson said...

“Master Wayne, the Bat-Computer has smoke coming out of it, and the printer’s gushing ink…” “Look Alfred, it’s trying to tell us something” … Swi chough-cough wheeze.. zer clank spark ackkk laaannnnd… “Holly Matterhorn Batman!” “Quick, to the Batmobile… Bob’s in trouble!”

lightly said...

based on bob clueless we can assume the following.

1) wales is playing rugby in the world cup
2) the world cup is in new zealand
3) world cup in september
therefore bob not in new zealand
4) wales is place the french in france
5) the games are in paris (but not all)
there fore for bob to sea the wales team in a hotel he would have to be in france. so ipto facto bob is in paris france

and for the record bob carry a handbag in france and begin a male is normal. so i was right on that one as well

lightly said...

and bob , you in france try get some inspiration and write the damn book already

itsmecissy said...

Just send me that $15 Starbucks cards and be quick about it!

itsmecissy said...

28 comments bob, a new genuine world's record for you!

Robert Crane said...

make that 29 sister! and by the way, you owe me $4.50 using Lightkly math (see my comment on beach post).

and by the way again, lightly, you are like four days behind on this whole thing. but it's good to see you are trying.

itsmecissy said...

See my comment under "a bob day at the beach."

Randy wanted the $15 itunes card.

Randy Johnson said...

Comment #31 and counting

Ummm, does that mean Bob’s not on a bullet train to Switzerland? I’m confused. Hmmm, let’s review: Bob’s going to “a cool part of the world and then moving on to another cool joint.” So is Paris the first cool location or the second, and which one are we guessing??? Lightly... a little help???

lightly said...

what you mean there is still starbucks money up for grabs

comment #32 and counting

itsmecissy said...

"Quack, quack, quack, quack!"

#33 and so on . . .

Randy Johnson said...

Comment #XXXIV

All this for $XV?

Robert Crane said...

finally we are done. bob was in Paris and Haarlem (which has a one block long red light district or so i've been told). i'll send the starbucks to itsme and the itunes to randy (of course, you both may have forgotten the possibility of a signed baseball by me). let me know ur addresses thru the contact tab and if that is in fact the prize you want.

be assured though that i'll never travel again based on the shenanigans i witnessed in this contest. next time, i'll tell ya where i'm going then ask you to guess and see how long it takes.

Randy Johnson said...

Next time save yourself the headache Bob, and just take us with you. We won’t even try to guess where we’re going. We’ll just sit in the back and take turns repeating “Are we there yet?”

itsmecissy said...

I hate baseball.

itsmecissy said...

Don't forget the beef jerky (well, turkey jerky). Ya gotta have jerky on road trips.

Are we there yet?????????

Randy Johnson said...

That's okay Bob you don't need to send a prize my way.
...But if you're gonna lose sleep over it I’ll send you my address (we don’t want Bob losin’ sleep.) ...And honestly I'd be happy with just a Christmas card, or Chanukah card, or Visa Platinum card, or a Red Light District gift card. Oh wait, those weren't the choices. Um, let’s see, I've got all the coffee I can handle already, what with those half-dressed baristas lurking around every corner, so I'll eliminate the Starbucks card. The baseball would be very cool sittin’ here on my desk, especially after you hit the big time (I hear Mark Twain autographed baseballs are worth a small fortune) but it's probably hard to stuff in an envelope, so guess I could always use a few more happy tunes on my iPod.
…But seriously just beating Lightly is all the prize I need ;)

itsmecissy said...

Speaking of Christmas cards, I've sent our friend bob a card the past two years --- yes, an actual card, that I sign and say something holidayish and seal and stamp --- and have never gotten any kind of acknowledgement whatsoever.

Why am I bringing this up now? Because this is the 40th comment for this post.

Robert Crane said...

geez louise, just call me a lout and ship me out.

1st, thank you itsme for your holiday wishes. considering i usually get just 1 card a year (from my dentist), the last 2 years have been quite special as a direct result of your reaching out to me with such kindness. i hope this belated, heartfelt, albeit bob-clumsy acknowledgement soothes the scars that my rather self-indulgent, boorish behavior have seered upon your breast.

2nd, please send me your addresses so i can send your prizes for "winning" the "where's boob" game. Itsme gets the starbucks and randy gets the itunes. and be quick about it so i don't forget and then three years from now have to write another apology on account of a post-lashing about my past indiscretion.

thank you.

itsmecissy said...

Just kidding bob, jeez!
