Trivia Corner Reboot WINNER and #10 Answers

A lot of people participated in this round. It seems like everybody brought their 'A' game for this last round. It came down to the wire. The winner was between Nippy and Geof. I had to get more specific answers from them to better calculate the winner. Geof almost snuck by Nippy to claim the throne but Nippy got one more question right than Geof. You should of cheated Geof, nobody would of known (Geof is now kicking himself).

Without further adieu I present you with the winner of Trivia Corner Reboot: Nippy the Penguin from CrazyPenguinRamblings. Congrats to Nippy for containing a plethora of useless knowledge. He should consider going on Jeopardy or Who Wants to Be a Millionaire but he has to give me 16.75% of his winnings. My elves are constructing his crown as I type. For winning I am going to write a post about Nippy and his blog, it will post next Monday in the normal Trivia Corner time slot. A new Trivia Corner will start up again in 2 weeks.

Congratulations to the brilliant Nippy. I scared you a little, didn't I, Nip? I was SOOOO close to catching up. Just 52 more points and I'd have shared in the glory. Sigh.
