| Humphrey Bogart |
You scored 33% Tough, 9% Roguish, 38% Friendly, and 14% Charming!
You're the original man of honor, rough and tough but willing to stick
your neck out when you need to, despite what you might say to the
contrary. You're a complex character full of spit and vinegar, but with
a soft heart and a tender streak that you try to hide. There's usually
a complicated dame in the picture, someone who sees the real you behind
all the tough talk and can dish it out as well as you can. You're not
easy to get next to, but when you find the right partner, you're caring
and loyal to a fault. A big fault. But you take it on the chin and move
on, nursing your pain inside and maintaining your armor...until the
next dame walks in. Or possibly the same dame, and of all the gin
joints in all the world, it had to be yours. Co-stars include Ingrid
Bergman and Lauren Bacall, hot chicks with problems.
Find out what kind of classic dame you'd make by taking the Classic Dames Test.

The Barrel O' BabiesThis is one strange game.
The villagers discovered a large barrel bobbing in the surf today. Unlike your average barrel, this one contains toddlers wrapped in blankets! They probably got lost during the exodus that brought the villagers to Isola. [What, and they've been in suspended animation for the thirty years since then?] Luckily, they found their way here to their kinfolk.

Take the quiz: "Which Holy Grail Character Are You?"
Oh, I am afraid our life must seem very dull and quiet compared to yours. We are but eight score young blondes and brunettes, all between sixteen and nineteen- and- a- half, cut off in this castle with no one to protect us.
